Yellow Brick Road

Christmas and other stuff

I meant to post this, like, 2 weeks ago but it never happened.  I'm terrible at updating.

Let's see, what's been going on with me the past couple of weeks.

Well, my Grandpa got here last Monday, and my sister got here last Tuesday.  And then Wednesday night, we were sitting around the kitchen table, talking about what we were going to have for Christmas eve and Christmas day.  When my Grandpa told us he was lightheaded, so he sat down in the chair, and then kind of passed out for a minute.  We called 911, and the paramedics came and then took him to the hospital.  They ran several tests, but found nothing was wrong.  So he came home on Thursday.  Friday was uneventful.  Saturday, which was Christmas eve, was pretty good.  We had a pretty lazy day.  I helped my mom make Pink Salad, but that's about it.  Mom made some Seafood Chowder for dinner.  That was really good.  And then my dad, Susi, and my Grandpa and I went to go look at the luminaries, and some Christmas lights around town.  Then we came back and read the Night Before Christmas and got Santa's snack ready and then went to bed.

Sunday, we all got up around 9 or so and opened our stockings.  Then we had egg casserole and cinnamon rolls (our traditional Christmas morning breakfast) and then we opened all of our gifts.  I got some clothes, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, the Great Muppet Caper and the Muppets mini nail polishes, and a new CD wallet, because I so desperately needed one.  Mmm...and I think that was about it.  I don't really remember.  Oh, and I got a mini Will controller.  I wanted a second one.  It's purple and pretty and tiny!  It's so cool!  And now I can have 4 people play Mario Kart wii! 

And the parties the couple days before was pretty good.  The one with Nicole, Katy, Jess, and I was a lot of fun.  We opened presents, and I got a coffee mug and an oven mitt from Jess, a Star Wars coloring book, a puppy calendar, lightsaber lip gloss, and some yarn from Nicole, a plushie puppy (which I named Dean, but of course), some candy, and a full bottle of Paris Amour (one of my favorite fragrances from BBW) from Katy.  And then Nicole got called into work, so she just left Jess and Katy and myself to our own devices till she got back. So we played some Apples to Apples, and I taught them Farkle.  And then Jess had to leave for another party, so Katy and I played some Mario Kart until Nicole got back, at like, 10.  And then we played Mario Kart til around 2 am.  And then we talked till about 4.  And then Katy and I left, and got home around 5 am.  I wasn't going to sleep, but I had to get up and do stuff.  Like clean my room and finish one of my manager's neckwarmers (which I finally finished a couple of days ago) and a couple of other things.  So then after I finished all of that, Nicole came and picked me up and we drove to the mall to meet everyone else, so everyone could follow Nicole out to her house.  So we got to her house, and we ate and then we did our White Elephant gift.  I ended up with a little Elephant, it's so cute!  And then pretty much everyone left, but Katy, Jess, and another one of our co-workers stayed behind for a bit, and played some Apples to Apples.  And then Jess and her left, and Nicole, Katy, and I and Nicole's boyfriend played Mario Kart for a couple of hours, and then we left and came home.

I will say, that Sunday was an interesting day.  After we finished dinner and what not, we were watching the King's Speech (my Aunt gave it to my mom and dad) and I was fixing myself a cup of tea, and I got it too full and I was carrying my cup over to the sink and it sloshed over the side and onto my fingers.  And burned pretty much all the fingers on my right hand.  I had one blister pop yesterday during floorset, and then I have one that's ready to pop and I'm wanting to pop it, but I know I can't.  And this morning, I woke up and had no voice.  I started feeling pretty crappy on Friday, and it snowballed the past couple of days.  As you can probably tell, it's been a rather rough past several days.

But, my sister and my Grandpa will be gone in a few days, and then the house will be quiet again.  And I can hang out with Nicole again, I miss seeing her.  I got a couple of tickets to go see the new Tin-Tin movie.  So I think we're gonna go together within the next week or so, I hope.

Anyways, my night time meds are kicking in, so I should get some sleep.
