I don’t know about y’all, but I am exhausted.
Like I may fall asleep writing this. I don’t want to make this a depressing post, but I went to the hospital to day to sit with my sister whose daughter was there for a life long medical issue. My niece seems to be back on the mend and might get to go home tonight, but I really think it might not be until tomorrow. We shall see. She is in and out of the hospital a lot and every single time I go to visit I park in the wrong place. The hospital is huge and spread out over several blocks. I manage to get lost every.single.time. Today they were working with a skeleton crew and there were no live people at any of the three places that give out patient room information. I was literally in back stairwells and wandering into STAFF ONLY dead ends for a good half an hour before I got to the room panting and sweating. It was actually a great cardio workout. Then I came home a bit ago, checked emails while heating up a turkey pot pie. After eating for the first time all day, I hit the wall. I’m back in narcoleptic mode.
Santa was especially good to me this year. Clearly, the naughty and nice lists got swapped because I made out like a bandit. I got a gift card to the movies that I am super excited to use. I haven’t been to the movies in years because unless it is something I am dying to see, it just seems kind of expensive to me. Plus I usually take myself out to dinner when I go and it just all adds up to a not so cheap date. I also got a gift card to a really nice restaurant group in Atlanta. I told you I was spoiled beyond belief.
Then Santa sent a lot of other surprises. It was all very unexpected and kind. I was terrible on my guessing this year. Each box I opened was a surprise.
I did get some champagne… that I was playing to drink tonight. But as soon as I ate I got so sleepy that I might wait until tomorrow. We will see if I rally.
There are a lot of good Christmas movies on tonight and I want to stay up to watch them. That was my Christmas. It was actually way more fun than it sounded. I got to spend a few hours alone with my sister on Christmas. She’s got so many kids and grandkids coming in and out of her house it’s always crazy. She has a son arriving tonight in fact. All five of her kids and there kids will be there tonight. So it was great to have some quiet time with her.
Time to watch more movies! Let me know how your Christmas went. What did you do? What did you eat?
Also how the heck do you pick a winner from all these gorgeous trees? What a mess I’ve gotten myself into. Help!
