Haven’t been feeling the greatest, but I’m powering through. Seize the day, for the days are limited.
Last night, two of Jackson’s friends came over for his belated birthday sleepover. These are newish friends so I didn’t know what to expect. Both kids were very polite and well behaved. I barely knew they were here. Jackson had a great time, and that was so important to me, especially given everything we have going on. It’s a relief to know he has good friends he can lean on.
D and I have been watching Christmas movies, but not the classics. Those we save for Christmas Eve and the big day. Friday night we watched Four Christmases, which we hadn’t seen before, and last night was a rewatch of Office Christmas Party. We will be watching another tonight with the kids as part of the advent calendar surprise I have planned for tonight. Can’t say much about it yet, because Freya reads my blog. 🤐
Ooh and speaking of classics, we have tickets to see It’s A Wonderful Life in the theater on the 18th!! 🥰
This afternoon I have a lunch date with my husband. Afterwards, Frey and I are going shopping for the little 5 yo girl I adopted for Christmas. Her list says she wants LOL dolls, Shopkins, and winter clothes. I had to ask Frey to explain Shopkins to me, as I was confused by what I was seeing online. Haha. Weird shit, but whatever. I’m going to hook this little girl up. Whenever I think of her opening her gifts on Christmas morning, I get all teary eyed. I wish I could get some stuff for her mom too, but this is a kids only thing. I should have found a family to adopt, but I didn’t want to get in over my head.
I can’t believe it’s already Sunday. I wish we could get an extra day of weekend. Now that I’m retired, my weeks feel so very long, and I live for weekends so I can hang with the fam. This will be a weird week because D is traveling. Though my bestie will be staying over the two nights he’s gone, so that will be fun. I have chemo tomorrow, and I’m actually looking forward to it because I want to kill some fucking cancer. Hopefully, it will treat me as gently as it did this last week.
I’m still worried about my eye. It’s swollen, and it’s sore inside/behind the eye. Something is def going on. I’m going to ask for a referral to an ophthalmologist. Gah – it’s always something. I’m tired, yo.
We’ve been discussing NYE. Our friend is throwing another party. This year it’s at The Fortune Teller Bar, which is a cool af venue, so I think we’re going to get tickets for that, and hopefully my body will cooperate. A lot of the LS crowd will be there, so it will be fun to hang with some old friends we haven’t seen in a bit. We’ve been out of that mix for about a year now. I miss my peeps!
I was also eyeing the NYE event at Jazz STL, but it’s crazy expensive, and I just don’t know if that’s the right vibe for us this year. I do miss live music tho, and I’m hoping we can get out for a show soon. I really enjoy jazz. I like it more than D does, but he indulges me like a good husband.
