Louis had the night off, so after a quick shower he and I headed back to his place and made steaks for dinner (he thinks I don't get enough iron and that's why I got sick the other day - not sure how he came up with that, but he decided I needed to eat more red meat). Monday nights are usually volleyball nights, but I just didn't have the energy. After dinner we finished watching "The Holiday" and then watched "Music & Lyrics". I want to see if I can find White Christmas so we can watch that - he's never seen it and it's just not Christmas until you've watched that movie, at least for me anyway. Oh, and I finally got to meet his sister, officially. We'd stopped by to see her at the Night Markets once before, but she was on the phone the whole time so we just sorta waved and left. Since she works at night she's always been gone by the time we arrive and I'm gone by the time they get home. She took a few days off so I we were able to be introduced. She's beautiful and super sweet; and in addition to speaking English, she's also fluent in Japanese! He's the baby of the family, and she's the next oldest sister, and there are two sisters older than her. Louis works with her husband at the RSL Club (sort of like the American Legion), but I've never met him either. You can definitely tell, based on their interactions, that she's the older sister...which of course made me miss my little brother.
Not sure if I'll get any shifts from the temp agency this weekend, but I have two days of teaching next week, so I'm at least guaranteed some money. Oh, and I'm now on Day 3 of my 25 Days of Christmas Greetings (my cousin got a bunch of people to write me cards and letters, at least one for every day in December before Christmas) and I'm loving it. The first day I got a photo, the second day a card and a home-made Christmas scene, and then today I got a cool story written by my little brother, based on movie quotes - it was very entertaining. I hope you all are having a good week - it's Hump Day!!
