And all I can say is that my life is pretty plain.

Last day home. I move into Nazareth tomorrow. I've been kind of clingy this week-Mom, Jamie and I had a girly afternoon yesterday and we layed out on the sun, I spent all this morning with Dad and tonight is my last night with Mom. Dad always gets the mornings with me before he goes to work, and Mom and I eat dinner together every night, watch bad television and spend time together around the house. I never realized how close I had gotten to my family. I may have wanted a party life during high school, but I'm actually really glad I became a homebody. I can't wait to go to school and have a busy life all day every day like at camp, but I'm looking forward to breaks to when I can come home and be a homebody again. I'm going to miss my house and family a lot. A lot a lot.

It still hasn't really hit me that I'm going to college. I've been dreaming of college since 7th grade and I have absolutely no idea what to expect. Crazy.

Charles and I are talking again. He made the grand gesture and it was a huge weight off me. I thought he'd treat me that way forever. It's not like how it used to be, he's still not my happy, goofy Charles, but hopefully we'll get back to that point. I know I'm still not comfortable myself being the way I was after all that has happened, so we'll see how it goes. I'm hoping for good things, none of this summer felt right without him. It took everything that happened this summer though for me to see what I want-it was a good reality slap.

The highlight of my day was talking to Daniel again today. I promised I would call before I left for school, and of course, he had still been sleeping when I called. Lazy bum. His schedule works out perfectly for his stay-up-all-night vampire habits. It's been a full year since we last talked on the phone, but it's still exactly the same. We pick on each other, I giggle, we tell each other everything that has been going on. After losing that with Charles all summer, it's good to have happy phone calls with Dan again. It's so good to be back to normal with Dan, friendships like ours don't come around often.

ANd now it's off to spend one last night with Mama, sew up my beauteous 80s dress, recover from the can of Pringles I demolished in one sitting, watch some awesomely bad television, and then get up at the buttcrack of dawn to head off to Naz.

LOVE. Wish me luck!!!
