It's miserable here. Rainy and dark and grim. I nearly died coming back to work on the interstate at lunch. HOWEVER.
I am filled with joy and xmas spirit and happiness. Holiday shopping nearly done. Think I did a good job. Am now excited about my parents' impending visit. (And not just because Dad said he was too lazy to ship stuff and thus was taking me shopping instead which could mean fabulous, expensive, new cowboy boots for me, woo!) And my mom got me the desk I wanted, shipped to my house in a clearly marked box, so I might put that together today so it looks extra nice in the house when the familia arrives.
Anyhooo, have given over stressing about xmas and am just excited now. Giddy, bouncing like Tigger. I also resisted buying myself stuff while shopping. Except Ghiradelli mint dark chocolates. But I feel that's my necessary reward for shopping so frugally and well. GO ME!
But let's just see how I am after another night of xmas music at the restaurant tonight. The Charlie Brown Christmas stuff was great, the rest? Not so tolerable. Especially when played rock musicians who think they funny or clever. I love them dearly, but I am full of fear at the xmas "xtravaganza" planned for this evening. All I can say is the customers better be full of the joy of the season and tipping like it's going out of style.
The only question now is, do I walk out in the rain, half a block down to my car, and get those mint chocolates out of the trunk?
Also today is Timmy Mac’s birthday. Which makes it a great day, because he is great and we should all celebrate his existence in the world.
