He's coming on Friday! I got to talk to him tonight and it was wonderful. Mindy & Jeff were there - they bought him a cordless phone for Christmas. Church was nice tonight - some Bible readings and some carols. I also got to talk to Mom tonight. She said Matt & Nat told her this week that they still haven't received the Christmas box. I hope it's there by Christmas! Tomorrow is teaching, and I haven't prepared anything. It's horrible, but I really don't care right now. Jamie's coming soon! I have to be up in just over 3 hours, so it's time to get ready for bed. I love you, Jamie!!!!!

I just got back from babysitting for the Johnstons. Just realized tonight that she's pregnant. Don't know how far along, but there should be a new baby before I leave! I made reservations for Venice - 120,000 lire for a double with shower and toilet in the hallway. Only thing I could find, so I had to take it. With the current exchange, that's about $55 per night. Got to talk to Jamie! I'm going to call him tomorrow at about 11pm my time. He and Mindy & Jeff are celebrating Christmas this weekend in Norman. Babysitting was easy - and I got to watch an episode of Friends! Alec's a cute kid. This morning, Morgan and I went to the Musée des Tissus and saw an exhibit on opera costumes - it was pretty neat. Next time we go to Lyon, we want to see the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Musée de la Miniature, and the archaeological park in Vieux Lyon. Lyon has Interpol's world headquarters - right next to the Museum of Modern Art. G'night Jamie. I love you!!!

I'm in Lyon having a wonderful time with Morgan. We just saw Dinosaur (in French). Earlier, we went to the Musée d'Art Contemporain, which wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be, and the United Colors of Benetton store. I bought a sweater. The musée had an exhibit about the French language that was pretty interesting... we ate dinner at a place called Le Sud that was really good - expensive, but really good. And our waiter was cute! Had nothing on Jamie, though. The city is pretty... nothing else much to say! We're getting up at... 7:30? (sidenote to self: I took a picture of the Hôpital Hôtel Dieu at sunset.) The musée (de tissus, etc.) opens at 10. Going now. Love you, Jamie!

We went to Auchan today and I spent $60!!! (sigh) I did stock up on things I need, though. I'm skipping out on homework tonight - just going to pack for tomorrow (Lyon) and get to bed, I wrote to Jamie and to mom, etc. tonight... I also wrote on the backs of the pictures I got back today. Monaco is beautiful. I talked to Charlene to finalize babysitting plans for Saturday, then called and woke Jamie up just to say hi. I complete forgot that he would be sleeping at that time! 8 more days until he's finally here! I love you, Jamie.

Thierry gave me a one-day extension on that paper; I just finished but I nodded off 3 or 4 times while I was doing it. Saw Chicken Run today (in French) and it was really funny. Then had fondue at "Le Pationata" and it was a blast! All in all, a good day! 9 days! Today, I also got a new temp. carte de séjour - the lady was really rude. Gotta go to sleep. Oh yeah - found a cologne (by Armani!) that I think I want to buy for Jamie. I love you, sweetie!

Well, I was trying to do my homework, but I kept nodding off, so it'll have to wait until tomorrow. Hope I can finish before class! Talked to Jamie - he got a 94% on his anth. paper. He's coming in 10 days! He talked to Charlie and found out Caren's due June 9. They do want to know if it's a boy or a girl, but they can't possibly know yet... I really need to sleep. G'night my wonderful man!

I finished all of the Christmas cards! Except the Charrons, but that takes more time since it's in French. Also wrote Jamie a letter... in total, 17 things to mail tomorrow! I'm pretty much skipping the main part of my homework. I had a really bad headache tonight and still managed to prepare our presentation and do some homework. Hopefully he'll let me have another day on the major homework assignments. Jamie's email today said he wouldn't be able to write me a letter this week. I completely understand, with finals and everything, but it still hurts. I need to get ready for bed. I love you, Jamie!

I'm really behind on my letter writing! I have to finish Christmas cards for all my college friends tomorrow so they can (hopefully) get them before leaving on break... Got to talk to Mom &Dad tonight. They're selling my car for parts! [If I remember correctly, Chris got into an accident in my car while I was gone.] They said it would cost the same to fix it as it would to buy a new (used) one. (sigh) Have to teach tomorrow... no idea what I'm doing, but hopefully I'll figure it out on the train tomorrow! Really have to get to bed. I'm only getting three hours of sleep tonight. I love you, Jamie!

Jamie's coming soon! I need to find some pj pants for him and wrap those and his CD. Also have to wrap the stocking stuffers, and buy & wrap Matt & Nat's gifts. Babysat for the Johnstons tonight. Their 3 year old, Alec, is cute but can be a handful. We (Charlene & I) traded discoveries of American food - refried beans (Galeries Lafayette) and Skippy peanut butter (occasionally at Géant.) I got to talk to Jamie today for a little bit - had to rush getting off the phone, though, so I wouldn't miss the bus. I'm going to run downstairs & call him to say g'night. I love you, sweetie! I'll tell you that in just a minute.

Tomorrow is a possible Auchan day, though right now I'm doubting that... babysat tonight - William is 6 and Mary Ellen is 3. Nice kids. Watched 2 episodes of Friends (!) and part of Ever After. Bought stocking stuffers today. Going back to the market next week for Matt & Nat's gifts. Get to talk to Jamie for a little bit tomorrow! I love you!
