parental visit

well, i didn't get any pictures taken but we had a great time. i was so grateful that they were able to visit. even though mom's energy was up and down, it was so nice just to be around her again. i didn't realize how homesick i was until they left on sunday, and i just felt so empty. i realized that i didn't like l.a. as much as i thought i did and that what gets me through the months is anticipating visits to seattle/tacoma and/or anitcipating visits from family and friends who are coming here. adjusting to l.a. is going to be a bigger adjustment than i thought. and with the holidays around the corner, i'm just missing everyone that much more.

a list of fun things we did over the weekend:
  • took katie shopping at miss sixty (a very trendy clothing store on melrose);
  • drove around griffith park, stopped at trails;
  • made a lovely thanksgiving dinner including: chicken (the turkeys were too big), mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, pumpkin pie, whipped cream and yukon jackson's chocolates;
  • went out to sushi;
  • had breakfast at the bed and breakfast several times (and, i got a small job there, organizing his office!);
  • hung out at the aparment, rested, and enjoyed each other's company;
  • matt was on set almost the whole time, but they got a great tour of the campus.

how many more days until christmas eve? because that's when i'm flying home, and i can't wait...
