Well the holidays are all about K this year. She has already put up our XMAS tree (I don't think I've EVER put it up before December 15 and that was early). She themed it "Navy" which means white lights, all blue ornaments and gold garland. She has even decreed that all presents that are placed under it have to be wrapped in gold! What a trip.
Tonight she cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner at a friend's house for her "core" group. Can't wait to see pictures. Hopefully, she will bring me a few bites to sample. She texted me right before they were going to sit down and seemed really excited at the look of the results.
Still a little iffy about Christmas presents. I think we will get her a good quality patron saint medal that she can have with her at bc, a spa day (she wants a massage before she goes) and a few other little things.
I kind of hate to admit this but I think she will miss her brother more than anyone else (me, of course). That is cool - they have always been best friends and it will be her biggest change. And he will miss her too, however he will have it easier at boot camp because she will have been gone for at least a couple of months when he goes.
My heart is feeling a little bittersweet tonight. I think I'll read a book and get my mind off of things.
