Christmas Dinner

The mac and cheese was a hit. For a while, it wasn’t looking so good, but then it came together.


I’m not feeling great, but trying to wait until tomorrow to go to the ER. I don’t want to end my Christmas in the hospital. Ugh – I’m so annoyed.


Freya and I watched Krampus tonight, and it was pretty entertaining. It was my first Christmas horror. I think we will watch the others tomorrow.

Merry Christmas 2022!

I made it. Woo.

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.

I’m a lucky lady. More later.

Christmas Eve!

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.

Anyway – I’m happy and I’m thankful.

Our Christmas Party 2022

We had a good turnout, though I didn’t get many pics. Yankee Swap was a success. Def want to do that again next year.

I eventually ditched the dress and wig because it was too hot.

Jackson started feeling sick about halfway through the night. He was complaining of a sore throat. I hope he wakes up feeling better, and I hope he didn’t get anyone sick.

Our neighborhood tonight:

A couple of the paper lanterns caught on fire. 😂

Holly Jolly Christmas

Christmas Eve with the kids was great. I love the years we have them on Eve instead of Day. Eve is my jam! We watched movies allllll day. Our list:

  • Christmas Vacation
  • It’s A Wonderful Life
  • Die Hard
  • The Santa Clause
  • Polar Express
  • (Mr. Hanky’s Christmas Classic)
  • A Christmas Carol (The Patrick Stewart version)
  • Star Trek Generations

I made all the appetizers. We snacked all day. D and I drank all day. It was glorious.

This morning, I woke up with pain from that weird tumor (or whatever it is) in my lower back. I took an Oxy and some morphine, and got my shit together. Wasn’t going to let that shit get me down.

Then it was time to open presents!

I did a good job this year. Everyone was happy.

D got me the bag I really wanted, so he did a great job too!

The kids are now with their other parents until Monday. What will we get into this weekend??? Stay tuned!

It’s a wonderful…day ♥️

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.

Not too shabby.

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.


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.

Merry Christmas Eve Eve. I have drinking to do!
