Mom had to get on her airplane. :( It was great having her here - it always is, but it was seriously a lovely christmas and we had a fantastic time just hanging out with eachother. It was a day of airport trips for me, since I dropped mom off in the middle of the day and then picked up one of my friends from the summer japan program who was coming to visit for New Years. Her flight was delayed until midnight or so, so she arrived at the house cracked out and fighting a bit of a cold, but happy to find herself in a land without snow. I think. Oh, who am I kidding, I was bouncing like a kid in the candy store when I picked her up! Tebo! In Texas!
