hey

So, when I quit life and went home for break, I basically quit many things, including blogging. But, I'm back and kind of ready to jump back in the saddle. My frustration expressed in the last post subsided and I made it through finals relatively unscathed. Break was so good--I needed it bad. I spent most of my time with my family and watched movies, slept in, watched "Monk" marathons, scrapbooked, and relished every moment I had with my family. Sunday was a hard day when I left. I was pretty teary, as were Mom and Emily. I made it back to Provo however (thanks to Michelle! My flight was delayed, so I was going to just ride back with Katelyn, but then Katelyn's flight was delayed, and thankfully Michelle could come last minute--thanks :) )

Yesterday was alright--classes went well and work was pretty normal. (Well, as normal as the Physics Dept can be). I was a little blue last night when I knew the family was eating homemade pizza and celebrating John's 14th birthday, but I sure am glad I have Katelyn and good roommates. I woke up today feeling a little down, but said a prayer to feel better and so far today I've been doing okay. I don't know why it's so hard for me to come back this time, but it is. It does make me feel better though that everyone else is getting back to real life too.

Tonight, Katelyn and I are going to see "Dan in Real Life" at the dollar theater so that should be fun, and this weekend we're going to see "27 Dresses." I'm slowly making my way back into real life, but it's a bit difficult. Break just was too short. That's why I listen to Harry Potter on my iPod, watch Gilmore Girls, and see movies--the escape into alternate realities help me merge back into my own.

Oh I am so sorry about your flight. I was worried about that but I am glad Michelle could get you.
Welcome back to real life. I'm happy you have Kaitlin to help you adjust. Good movies are a great way to adjust.

Hey, to you too! When I picked up John from school today he said that his day felt like a really long Monday, and I have to agree. I still have to go to a meeting at the high school, but must change my clothes first because I stopped to help Grandma take a few boxes downstairs and ended up wrestling with her flocked tree while she and Grandpa argued about the best way to get it into the tree bag. Now I'm covered in white specks--stuck like velcro to my ENTIRE outfit. . . .

I can't wait to go to bed.

P.S.: Emily and I are planning to see "27 Dresses" this weekend, too!

Returning to real life is always hard- I wish I were there to help ease the transition! Shell told me that you called for a ride, and stupidly, I said: "From Denver?!?!"

Ah, the return to real life, one of the hardest things around if you ask me! Did you love Dan In Real Life? I did.

p.s. your package of Christmas goodies arrived! (if you can get here despite these blizzard conditions)
