Thanksgiving eve. It's still tough being so far away from family for holidays. I'm spending Thanksgiving this year with Matt's family. His two brothers, their wives, his sister, parents and two nieces. I think that's it, who knows who will show up.

I see everybody saying what they are thankful for and it's always family, friends and health. My family means more to me than they will probably ever realize. I know I can count on them for anything. Same goes for my friends. They are my family over here.

I need this break, from

This week has been flying by. Tomorrow is Friday, I'm still not caught up with last weekend.

On Friday Matt had to work and his parents were in Vegas so I offered to hang out with Adrian for the day. We went to the aquarium, rode the subway, bought a 'penguin' to hatch, watched a movie together and sat in traffic. I also lost the key to Matt's apartment in my car somewhere during this time and had a momentary freak out, but maintenance let me in and cut a new key. Kate went with us to the aquarium, had a fun time hanging out.

On Saturday the three of us went up to Rockport to go to Halibut Point State Park. The boys had fun throwing rocks in the quarry and I think I had 479 heart attacks thinking Adrian was going to fall in. We also played on the ocean rocks, Matt got himself soaked when he was standing on one rock and a wave came in. No photo proof because I was laughing my ass off.

Agenda for this weekend: Relax, thrift store shop, Matt's brothers birthday, Relax. We'll see how that goes.

We've only been dating for around 2 months and I can already tell that this relationship is so much different than my last, or any of all those other dates I've been on.

We were laying in bed last night and watching some documentary about truck drivers and he just breaks out into his truck driver accent and starts making out with me. It continued for a good 15 minutes and my sides were hurting from laughing so hard.

Life is going incredibly well right now and I am a lucky lucky girl.

California was was nice to see that side of the coast again, to watch the sunset over the ocean. I miss that so much. Plus the palm trees, ohhhh, the palm trees. But I also remember why I left, everything looks the same..beige and boring.


I had a good time hanging out with Heathers friends. We drove around LA in Trudy, the awesome car, went to the beach, In and Out, had the Halloween party, dug through the Goodwill in downtown, ate the most amazing donuts, and laughed. It was a nice weekend away. Plus the weather.......sigh.

For the Halloween party, I went dressed up as Octo-Mom! It was amazing, if I can say that. Being in a relationship at a party without that person is interesting and not as fun. I stayed and chatted with the other girls in the same situation, yet still managed to get hit on by 'actors'. It was pretty funny and just showed me how image and status are what it's all about in this town.

Then it was time to come home and back to the real world. Also back home to THIS....

That is Dan Aykroyd and I have fallen madly in love with this little lump of fur. He bounces and jumps to greet me when I get home, snuggles in my lap and cuddles with my back. He's just the best!
