Christmas in California.
That's my Christmas outfit. It was 81 on Chirstmas-day and the following days around 75. Pfff, way too hot for me.
December 25th 2013
This was my second Christmas in the USA. A good morning, the boys in the house woke me up before 7 am. Way way way way to early, i'm serious. I putted my Santa hat on and my new pajama. It's a tradition that they film Christmas morning, because they're gonna un-rap the presents. I was seriously sitting there like, okay, when is this gonna end, i'm tired and i miss my family. I got a few presents, little ones, i felt sad because my package from the Netherlands wasn't arrived yet so I had no presents or something (only for the boys). After we unwrap the presents, i FaceTimed my family. I missed them so much on Christmas morning, but i was happy, i saw that they had fun. Christmas day was kinda okay, i did nothing special. I FaceTimed my boyfriend and my best friend to say Merry Christmas. And in the evening we ate diner (lam and pork chop) and we went for a walk at the lake. It was an okay Christmas, not something special. I went to bed early because i was kinda homesick and so tired. The boys here got a new keyboard, so i'm gonna learn myself how to play the keyboard. I've nothing to do.

I woke up not that early or late. It is second Christmas day in the Netherlands, but they don't celebrate it here. Today we dropped the woman of at here work and we went to Target. I bought a few post cards for my best friends and family. My thought was, that that would be fun for them! The thing that i did today was learning myself how to play the keyboard. I can play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with both hands, and i know a few notes and chores :), happy me. I've been to the swimming pool too today, it was kinda short because they had not much time. It was sad, because i wasn't done with my practice.. I got a huge headache after swimming and during diner, so i was kind of moody (and tired). The boys were playing Call of Dutch Ghosts they whole day, and are addictive right now, so they were mean too. I took a shower that night, and typed my blog (haha) and went to bed early. I needed it. I were hard days for me.
I've nothing more to tell, :)
Ik schrijf het in het Engels omdat mijn meeste readers uit de US komen, en ik wil het graag voor hun verstaanbaar maken omdat ik weet dat de meeste Nederlands ook wel Engels kunnen verstaan. Mijn Engels word steeds beter en mijn Nederlands gaat achteruit.
Om nou te zeggen dat ik het hier naar mijn zin heb, nee, maar ik overleef het wel. Ik doe af en toe leuke dingen maar ik moet echt heel erg wennen aan de cultuur van California, want eerlijk gezegd is het niets voor mij.. Maar ik kom er wel overheen, zoals ik ooit wel eens eerder zij, cry a river, build a bridge and get over it. Komt wel goed met mij, maar er zijn soms lastige tijden. Ik mis mijn vrienden en mijn gezinnetje best wel. Ik kan niet wachten om naar mijn gastgezin te gaan.
Liefs. kisses & hugs.
