In two weeks from today, I shall be on my way home for Christmas vacation. I have wanted to be back all this time, but the school has prevented this. I started to get sick at or about the 12th or 13th. I haven’t felt entirely well any day since then. I was told I had bronchitis and it hasn’t left yet. I am really looking forward to going home. Being here alone is hard, especially right now. The Thanksgiving break did me wonders. Talking, laughing, and being around my family felt so good.
Our family left for Seattle on Friday the 25th. Mel and I came to the trailer where we watched USC beat UCLA 31 –29 (on a last-second field goal) and put the Washington Huskies into the Rose Bowl. What a great start to the weekend! Later that night I took Mel to see Oh God! Which she enjoyed very much.
