I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving! I do love this holiday, and I love fall, so I’m excited to go back home where the leaves are changing and it’s cold. I’m nervous about bringing Jack home to meet everyone, though! He’s going to be so overwhelmed, but I keep telling him that they’re all going to love him. Which I know they will. I guess I’m most worried about my sister, since she just got divorced. I’m worried she’ll feel lonely the whole weekend and won’t want to hang out with us because she’ll be the only one without a significant other. It almost makes me not want to bring Jack, so I can hang out with my sister the whole time and help her get through this. But then again, that’s not fair to Jack or myself. I want my sister to be happy, but I have to do what’s right for me as well. I’m sure it’ll all work out. I just don’t want her to be depressed the whole time. Man, this has always been my favorite holiday, but this year I can’t wait for it to be over.
