Today Ursula and I almost went skating. It's something that she had been looking forward to for a while, a good motivator for me to get out of the house, and a beautiful day in Boston - bright, cold, clear. But then we arrived at the Kendall Square Rink to find it horribly crowded - a line stretching out of the building and through the little park - and immediately called our father to pick us up. That's what we get for going out on a federal holiday, I guess.
Hanging out with the family is my favourite part of being home for the holidays. We can skate or not, it doesn't matter - what matters is that I was spending time with my little sister.
I hope you've had a lovely day thus far!
