2013 is here already and I feel like I haven't seen/hung out with you guys in forever! Maybe after you guys get back from ice skating tomorrow? Actually after not blogging for 2 weeks-ish, I feel like I have things to write about.
After working the whole week before Christmas, I ended up hanging out with Mackenzie after I got off work on Christmas Eve. I didn't feel too guilty about ot spending it with my dad because he hung out with Jane that evening. That night we sat around the kitchen table and hung out with her family, had a wonderful dinner, and then Mackenzie and I played cards with 2 of her brothers. A random game called...wait let me google it....Euchre (pronounced You-ker), a card game that only cool Michigan people know about. Whatever, I learned how to play a new game! It's super weird though.
For Christmas, I got up around 10:30, took a shower, and then my little bro got here and we opened presents as my dad cooked our lovely Christmas lunch. After lunch, my little bro went home and my Dad and I took a nap. Exciting times, I know.
The next morning I had to wake up around 4am and get on a bus to to to Detriot for WKU's bowl game. The bus ride got more exciting as the day went on because we traveled through rain that eventually turned to slush and then to snow! I found it hilarious because everyone was super excited to see real snow. However, because of the weather, we ended up changing into full uniform on the bus and barely not making it in time for our pre-game show :( and although we lost, it was a really good/exciting game. Katie and I tried to get food during the forth quarter, but we could only find dip-n-dots: delicious, but unfulfilling when you're super hungry for real food. It was around 11-ish when we got to our hotel--a SUPER nice hotel, one that you get lost in and had super fast elevators and stores inside the place. Anyway, we just wanted to get food, but because it was a Wednesday, most resturants were closed/too late to deliver. The hotel gave us a whole stack of flyers, though, of restaurnts that deliver and while going through them, we found 2 places that were open. So did everyone else...our order took about an hour to get there. After finishing our food, and other details that I don't want to type out but can tell you in person, we found ourselves walking along the river in about 6-ish inches of snow about 2am. When our group walked out the door, the doorman (doorwoman?) told us to "stay in the light" a couple people in our group chuckled and so she said "I ain't sh**ing you, stay in the light." I took it as a warning. But nothing happened, and I was super amazed at my TOMS boots and how well they were in the snow, my socks werent wet at all, except for a little by my toes. We got back to the hotel around 4am and got up at 7 so we could be on the bus by 7:45 to leave.
On the ride back, I slept, woke up to eat lunch at a mall in Florence, KY (where the water tower has "Florence Ya'll!" written on it) and played Slender for the first time (I got 3 pages). We got back to BG around 5, I hung out with Mackenzie's family afterwards, and then passed out at my house after that.
Nothing else happened that week until the 30th when Mackezie, Mark, and I travelled to Lexington to hang out with some friends of Mackenzie to bring in the new year.
Today, I went shopping and made a fruit smoothie that I'm drinking while writing this blog on my phone.
