My brother Kent is coming home!! I can’t believe I’m actually saying that with excitement. He used to annoy me ALL the stinkin’ time. Now he’s a big college man – eye roll – and I do miss him. Especially around the supper table when the focus is completely on me. Anyway… He’s going to be here any minute and I can’t wait! They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and that’s apparently the case here. The last time he called home, all he could talk about was this girl, Nina. I’m going to pick on him relentlessly about this girl. He deserves it after all the flack I got about Noah. I want to see a picture of her. So maybe I won’t pick on him until AFTER I see the picture.
Mom’s making her famous noodles. That’s really all I need for Thanksgiving. Well, that and rolls and whip cream with a side of pumpkin pie. But she’s making sweet potatoes too – Kent’s favorite. And turkey. I’ve never been a huge fan of turkey, but I’ll eat a little bit. She always makes stuffing too. Kent and I always have to help tear the bread. Not my favorite tradition. Thankfully, Kent’s coming home just in time to help with that! If he thinks being at university is going to get him out of that, he’s crazy!
I think I just heard the front door open. I’ve gotta go! Kent’s home!
