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. 😂

D’s Work Christmas Party

It was good getting to see all of his colleagues and their spouses again after so long. I also got to meet some people I hear about all the time. The party was at City Foundry, which I had never been to before, and it’s a cool place. It was a good time, though I’m still bummed it was the same night as Freya’s choir concert. Hopefully I’ll be here and well enough to attend the spring concert. That’s what I keep telling myself.
