NYE RECAP

We went up a party our friends were hosting at their neighborhood bar. It was surprisingly swanky. I was quite impressed. There was a mix of LS and non-LS people, and it was very well attended. (I didn’t realize tickets were available on Eventbrite). We hung with lots of old friends, and made some new ones. We got home very late (4:30 ish after trying and failing to find an all night diner) and so we are both exhausted today. That’s why we’re in bed before 10:30 pm on a Saturday night.

Oh and my dress was a fucking dream. I’m in love with it.

It’s covered in little gold stars and moons. I need an excuse to wear it again soon. I actually felt really pretty, and the party ended up being an unexpected confidence boost. I’ve still got it, baby. ♥️

Byeeeeeee

2021 was an awful year and I’m not at all sad to see it go. Bitch, bye.

I always get excited for a new year, but I’m more excited than usual this time around. I feel like 2022 has a lot to offer me. I plan on saying yes to all the new experiences possible. I want to live; truly, unabashedly live.

I don’t have any real resolutions. I just plan to do what feels right. I know what that means for me right now, but I’m open to it changing, and I’m not going to set myself up for failure or berate myself. I’m seeking joy whenever and wherever I can.

It has to be this way. There’s no time to waste.

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.

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.

Merry Christmas Eve Eve. I have drinking to do!
