Yea it has been a while... too long, I think.
I believe the last time I posted was just before my trip to Williamsburg with my grandma. It was a pleasant trip. We did plenty of shopping and visited Busch Gardens to see the Christmas Town shows. The Prime Outlet mall in Williamsburg is AMAZING!!!! I got a couple of summery things to wear when I get to Australia. I also got plenty of gifts for various family members at the Lennox outlet. I think my favorite was a a Christmasy teapot for my aunt. As soon as I got back from that trip, I left again to go to Charlotte for Christmas Eve and morning. We opened presents that evening and had a big meal. I got back just in time to head over to my neighbor's house to have some delicious chocolate cake. Generally, it was a very nice Christmas.
I have spent the majority of this week packing up all of the stuff in my apartment, where I have a very large bedroom, and cramming it into my tiny bedroom and closet at home. Tomorrow will be furniture moving day. I plan on spending New Year's eve at home since the bf is out of town.
There isn't really anything new to report about the Australia trip except that I submitted my visa application, which cost an arm and a leg. I also received an Australia travel guide.
I have lots and lots of new books to read, so maybe I will write a couple of non-professional reviews as I read them... just a little something to occupy my time until I leave. Right now I am working on a book called "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen. It is about a young man who works on a depression era circus. So far it is pretty interesting, but more on that later.
Well I think I will get back to organizing my room. I promise to write more frequently now that I will be at home for a while. I also promise to post a couple of Christmas pictures.
