Home for the Holidays

Home is such a relative term. It is our little apartment most of the time, except when I'm in Hamilton and talking about my parents' place. Then that's home. Until I'm there, then Hamilton is home again.

Either way, I'm heading home for the holidays, to Verner / the middle of nowhere. Pat is also from the area (we met in high school), so we travel home together. This year, if the weather is nice, we're going to get a ride home from either my mom or my older brother. My brother is more likely to drive in some snow, and he wants to stop at IKEA to get a last-minute gift. However, it really depends on the weather ~ it's snowing pretty hard here right now.

Well, actually, the wind is the worst part, blowing the snow up and reducing visibility. But we get so little snow in Hamilton that it's a pretty big deal ~ schools were canceled this morning before the snow even got started! Back home, we definitely would have gone to school in such a storm.

Anyway, I'll be away for 2 weeks. It's going to be a nice, long visit (though by the end I'll be more than ready to come back home). I won't be able to be online as often as I like, but my parents finally just got high speed internet, so I'll be able to steal my little brother's laptop to check my email, shop and blog.

I'd like to wish everyone a very happy and safe holiday ~ I hope you get to spend it with those you love most.

Have a very nice time at home. When you get back, it will seem like you never left.
