I’m back home. I am tired but very happy. I can’t thank my friends enough for having me and keeping me distracted over Christmas. It would have been hard to make it alone.
We played many games, talked, baked, drank… It was all very cozy and family oriented. The spirit, while preparing everything, set the tone for the rest of the holiday.
We are each other’s adopted family, with a lot of us being ex-pats away from our real families.
I have spoken to Raven a few times and she’s enjoying it. She’s also keeping busy, meeting her dad’s old friends and going to barbecues in their houses. The weather there is a plus.
Things are fine. I miss her but I’m good.
