Christmas is over and I'm still standing...that has to count for something, right?
It wasnt too bad. It wasnt too good either. Basically, just overall boring. It didnt help that I spent Christmas with a bigger Scrooge than I. We went nowhere. We did nothing. And on any other regular day, I wouldnt have particularly cared. But this was Christmas and it would have been nice to do something...ANYTHING! I know where it stemmed from with him...it was Christmas and he didnt get to talk to his kids. AND THIS IS WHY I WILL NEVER DATE ANYONE WITH KIDS EVER, EVER AGAIN!
I did leave him with this thought to chew on...If I spend my New Year like I did my Christmas, I'm going in to my New Year without him.
Matt did manage to conjure up enough Christmas spirit to go get me some Christmas gifts. I got a new color printer for the new computer I had bought a couple of months back. I also got a gift certificate to Macy's and this cute little dolphin/plant thingie.
On the brightest side of things...I received a phone call from my cousin's wife. Apparently, they have been staying at her sister's house in Huntington Beach and they will be looking for a place of their own in the area. That makes me very happy. That means I am not trapped here with NO family, at least I have someone. That makes a big difference to me.
And then to really make my day bright today, my new Versace glasses came in. They're so cute. They came with a certificate of authenticity and an ever so cute glass case that looks like a little pocket book. So this day is looking up.
I've also noticed that I have typed out this entire entry without hunting and pecking...that means my fingers are almost 100% better. I'd say 96%. That is a major improvement over the last 4 or 5 months. SO it appears that I've received presents in little places that I wouldnt have expected. Those are often the best gifts.
