For the past week I have been in Wenatchee, WA with my sisters Shaley (33), Amelia (17), Charlotte (15) and Marjie (10). It has been pure, heavenly bliss and I miss them more than words can say.
Now I’m back in LA and have already had two big crying fits because I miss them all so much. And I get to go back to work tomorrow and sit at my desk and pretend like I’m happy when inside I’m dying and just want to be back with my sissies.
That’s all for now.
On Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, I gave my mom the best surprise of her life (or so she said) - me! I told her I had to work a half day at work (lie) and then drove home to Eugene, Oregon to (hopefully) surprise her with my presence for Thanksgiving. Well it worked! I made sure to call her in the morning “on my way to work,” then waited to call her again until 9:15pm, when I was only a mile or so from home. When she asked me if I had watched SYTYCD yet so we could discuss, I lied and told her I had taken a nap right after work and was currently driving home from Burbank, where I had just been hanging out with a friend. This was all as I drove down our street. She told me she was about to watch Modern Family and I asked if I could watch it with her, to which she replied, “No, it will take you too long to get home and turn on your TV.” I said, “But I’m home now” and knocked on her door. And she still didn’t get it! She opened the door, saying into the phone “Someone’s at our door, it’s probably our neighbor Sherri,” and found me on her doorstep instead. :) I think she stood with her mouth open, speechless, for at least 5 minutes. I’m normally awful at pulling off surprises, so I’m very proud of myself for this one!
