Saturday, December 10
-Ran errands/shopped by myself after work
-Went to my grandma's empty house and just sat and thought (I'm not weird, I promise!!!! Honestly, I love going over there and looking at everything. Even though she's gone, I feel close to her around all of her stuff. And especially here at Christmas time, I think that's good for me. I love old stuff and looking through pictures and thinking about all the things that happened in my family before I was born. I love looking through my grandma's jewelry. I guess it's all mine now, but I'd feel weird taking it all...idk.)
-Met my parents and sister for dinner at Kepley's (one of the BEST restaurants in High Point. Been here since the 40s. My mom worked there when she was like 16.)
-We went to get our family Christmas tree. A little late, but whatever.
-Alex, Ashley, and I rode around and looked at lights, and then ate at Carolina's Diner (another great food place).
*This day was cool because I almost felt like I was in a time warp the whole day, if that makes any sense? Maybe I'm weird, but I'd LOVE to live in the 50s, 60s, or early 70s, and hearing oldies at work all day, hanging out at my grandma's house, then eating at Kepley's and Carolina's Diner...I kinda felt like I was close to that time period. Can anyone else relate to me on that??? I feel like that's weird hahah
So that was week two, and week three is coming soon!!
What fun activities are you all doing as Christmas draws near?
