Today has been quiet and chill so far. We opened presents and had breakfast. Then I took a nap. The plan is to play some games soon and eventually make dinner.
Heard the news that another good person lost their life to cancer. Pancreatic this time. Another good soul lost way too young. It’s awful and I hate it. It makes me sad, and it also makes me feel guilty for being lucky enough to still be here.
The family spoiled me this year. I got all the comfort items: fuzzy socks, slippers, a luxurious robe, a down comforter and 800 thread count sheets (with polka dots!). I spend most of my time in bed, so this was well played. Oh and D put a $300 Door Dash gift certificate in my stocking, so I’ll be feasting on burritos in the new year. Woot.
It’s finally here. And it has been really nice. We’ve watched: The Night Before, Die Hard, A Christmas Carol, and now Star Trek: Generations.
The only downside has been that I’m fairly certain my drain site is infected, and so I’ve been fretting over that all day. I really don’t want to end up in the ER tomorrow. It hurts, but I’m otherwise okay. I’m watching it carefully tho. Like I said…fretting.
We’re looking forward to having Freya home tomorrow morning, and opening gifts. Not sure what we will do with the rest of the day yet – probably more movies. Lol. Oh and we’re making a big dinner. I’m trying out a new mac and cheese recipe I found on NYT Cooking.
There are two other trees to put up, and I need to decorate the mantle, but this was the biggest step. I love this time of year so much. I’m excited to sit in the living room tomorrow night and read next to the tree. Sounds lovely.
Some things never change…I’ll be shopping on Christmas Eve, like always. Jackson needs a gift for his dad.
I spent about five hours at the office today, and it was great. It was flannel day, so I wore the Kurt Cobain Walmart flannel from Halloween 2012.
D and I did the Christmas grocery shopping today. I’m so excited for tomorrow. The agenda calls for lots of appetizers and snacks, along with several movies. We have a list that we stick to: Polar Express, The Santa Clause, It’s A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol, and Star Trek Generations.
OMG I’M SO EXCITED.
I just finished wrapping the last of my gifts. I’m tempted to go out and buy a few more. I’m in a very giving mood this year.
Btw I’m living my best life on Ritalin. Motherfucking praise hands for real.
