A Christmas Friday 10

Nope, haven't blogged for a while. For those of you who saw my locked post a couple of weeks back, dealing with that threw me out of the loop for a while. But here I am. With Christmas two days away, I'm happy to announce that:

1. I finished all my shopping and managed to navigate every store without one single physical or even verbal altercation.

2. I wrapped every item (up till 3 a.m. last night doing it) and could actually climb up off the floor by myself without calling 9-1-1. My knees, however, may never be the same.

3. I found a happy medium between "cheap" and "extravagant." Well...I'm happy with it, anyway.

4. I'm officially flipping the bird to anyone out there who says gift cards are a crummy idea. I think they're a better idea than lottery tickets unless...yanno...it's a Guaranteed Win.

5. I'm loving my Nook and seriously hoping that Santa will be kind enough to load it up for me.

6. I ordered clothes for Grandma from some geriatric online "boutique" and literally shrieked in horror when I opened the package. DUDE! When I am that old? Please do NOT attempt to dress me in flowered dusters, dammit!

7. For the first time in several decades, because I am working, I will not be home on Christmas morning. *sniff*

8. Do you realize there is not ONE SINGLE TOY I can buy Elijah for Christmas that won't end up in his lower colon within 24 hours?

9. If nothing else, at least my hair will look spectacular for the holidays. :-)

10. The best thing? I have another Christmas to celebrate on January 7th and a whole 'nother paycheck on January 6th!

HAVE A WARM, SAFE, AND HAPPY HOLIDAY, EVERYONE!

Yeah, I bought a few gift cards myself...At least they won't be exchanged for something the right size. :>)

Happy holidays (whenever you get to celebrate them)!

Happy holidays! It's a shame you can't be home on Christmas morning, though....

I hear you about the knees... only mine is from painting for the past month. At this point, I'm wondering if my back and knees will ever recover. :P

That sucks that you can't be home for Christmas. :( I hope you're able to have a great holiday in spite of that.

It's nice to hear people who are loving their Nooks/Kindles/what have you. I ended up getting one for Christmas with the money my family and my husband's family sent. It's under the tree though, so I haven't used it yet. Honestly, I never wanted one because I just like hard copies too much. I especially like to ooh and ahh over how pretty they all look on my shelves. But I'm running out of bookshelf space and places to put more shelves so I came the the realization that if I don't get an e-reader, I can't keep buying books. Hopefully I'll like it as much as everyone else seems to.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you. It's so good of you to spend time with others on Christmas morning, those you need you and depend on you for help. And here's to great hair!
