This year is more typical of most years for me in the Holiday season; I hear Christmas music and I punch things, I hear carolers and I gag, I see snow and I weep. I do, however, have my Christmas tree up. Sort of. It needs a little help, and more lights, but I'll get a picture up after it's displayed in all its glory.
The husband is going out of town for work training next Monday through Friday, and it'll be the longest time we've ever spent apart since we started living together almost 7 years ago. (This is my sad face.) I am looking forward to my house staying clean for that long, though. And eating Thai food EVERY DAMN NIGHT!
I am thinking of it as training for when I go to California with Punk and BioMom in March for six days for cheer nationals. Just the three of us. Driving down together. And splitting a room. We've come a long way, eh? Hopefully it's not too weird. But it's California, my home away from home, and we're going to California Adventure and how fun will that be?! I get to go to CarsLand!!! ...sorta excited, sorry.
My surgery is on the 19th. Two weeks from tomorrow. Half of me is excited and the other half of me just wants to cancel it entirely. I can't wait to hopefully be able to breathe and get oxygen while I'm sleeping, and maybe it'll help the headaches stop and possibly I won't want to kill people anymore. Doubtful on that last part, but you never know.
My Christmas shopping is almost done. I'm planning on finishing up the last little bit next week while the husband is gone, because it's all the time I've got left. How are you doing on your shopping? Are you one of those people that finishes in October? Or are you like me and (usually) leave it until the 23rd?
This year is awesome because my wish list and Punk's are starting to coincide, so I buy presents for her that I'll get to enjoy, too. Rock on, universe. This parenting thing is starting to get fun. Remind me I said that in two years when she's slamming her bedroom door and telling us she hates us.
Have a lovely Tuesday, my wonderful readers. And enjoy yourself some donuts today, because I am, and it's making me incredibly happy.
