As you can see from the photos above, this dreaded holiday called Christmas is finally over in my house.
The colorful zip tied gift was what I gave my daughter, among other things. But I always do one gift that she really has to work for. So, I used about 100 colorful zip ties to seal up a small card box with cash in it. Then I took that zip tied package and put it in a small gift box, taping it down so it didnt rattled or move. THEN…I placed that box into a bigger gift box and taped it down. AND THEN…I wrapped the big gift box, using wrapping paper and then sort of lamanating the entire thing with clear packing tape.
Yeah, she earned that cash. Cursing me the entire time. I LOVE IT!!!
Then you can see in the other photos the kittehs got their stockings full of toys. I just sort of tossed the toys on the floor in the middle of my office. I snapped a good pic of Jeffrey Jones, however BaxterMarie was having none of it. She just wanted to play with all the new shiny toys.
We ate, I drank. I’m still drinking now.
I wrote some, RP mostly.
I have some lovely friends who sent me holiday greetings, and my evil twin and I met for lunch earlier in the week…she gave me a Walking Dead key tag that has Daryl Dixons cross-bow hanging from it. ~SQUEEE~ Its perfect.
My daughter got me an Amazon gift card. I always ask for money or Amazon gift cards. I usually prefer picking out my own things.
I refered to this holiday as dreadful. I dont like this time of year. I get very, very depressed. And I feel nothing goes my way, and, in the true nature of that, NOTHING has gone my way this season. It only adds to the natural depression.
I sent my best friend an Amazon gift card. I imagine she’ll buy books. She’s a reader.
I slept off and on today. Between drinking. And I didnt get any sleep last night, so the alcohol induced sleepiness was helpful.
I’m at a stalling point in my novel. So, instead of putting added stresses on myself, and anxiety, I am stepping away from it until January. Then my editor is going to hate me. >_>
I want to get back into my old routine of setting up at the coffee shop and writing the day away. I was always most productive that way. Here at home I have way too many distractions.
So, hope you all had good holidays if you celebrate.
And thank you Patricia for giving me a kick in the pants. 😛
