Holiday Aftermath

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!!! It’s weird that whether you’re super excited for Christmas or absolutely loathe it, December always seems to fly by. My week was pretty eventful, but nice for the most part. We had a mini-Christmas with Jon’s immediate family on the 18th. We usually celebrate with them Christmas eve after we visit Jon’s aunt and his mom’s side of the family, but I guess his mom didn’t want to worry about the kids being out too late on Christmas Eve and whatnot, so we did it early. On Christmas Eve we went to my Dad and Stepmom’s around lunch time and spent a few hours there, then to Jon’s Aunt’s for dinner. Christmas morning and the rest of the day was spent at home, as usual, eating and relaxing. πŸ™‚ Then the next day, the 26th, we drove the 3-4 hours with my Dad to visit my aunts, uncles, cousins, and my grandfather. Sadly he’s in a nursing home at the moment since he had to have surgery on his foot and can’t really get around on his own. This was my first time visiting him there, which was kind of depressing to see him unable to do much for himself. He did seem in decent spirits, though, and my Dad seems to think he likes where he’s at so as long as he’s happy and is continuing to heal, then I’m OK. It was nice being able to see everyone since I don’t get to see them often. Unfortunately we had to drive home the same day due to my Dad and Jon having to go back to work on Tuesday, so our time with them was limited.

As for presents, Tyler made out pretty well. He got a TON of “Bey Blades,” though I’m not surprised considering that is the only thing he told people to get him, haha. He also got a few XBox and Nintendo DS video games, some board games, clothes, a bunch of different building blocks and legos, candy, etc… he’s certainly a spoiled little turd! πŸ™‚ OK, OK, I’m a little spoiled, too. I got a lot of gift cards, which is always what I prefer, since I love doing my own shopping. πŸ™‚ My dad got me slippers, PJs, a robe and shower kit, and a super-soft furry leopard blanket, which was really funny considering he’s been bugging me to get OUT of my house more lol. I also got a bunch of girly bath products and other odds and ends. Overall it was a nice holiday. πŸ™‚

Normally I’d be super excited for New Years Eve, but since our plans are still up in the air I’m getting really nervous. I know we’ll be doing something, but I hate not having a definite plan. As of now, it’s more likely that we’re going to have everyone at my house, but I just wish people would let me know for sure so I have time to clean and get food, decorations, drinks, etc… It’s only 2 days away, after all!

    I wish we could do something nice for New Years! My fiance was thinking of throwing a party but we don’t have enough money, food, drinks, or anything! However a good new years blessing would be to get this job that I’ll be interviewing @ tomorrow.

    Have a happy new year!!! 2012 is right around the corner πŸ™‚
