I Survived Christmas

My awesome Christmas tree
Yes. I did. I have the battle scars to prove it.

So Christmas has come and gone and the day itself was pretty cool. The nephew came over pretty early to open his presents, which were all under my avant garde, unconventional Christmas tree. But put some lights on a thing, and any kid would love it. That kid is really good at ripping stuff up so watching him open his presents was a treat. Funny, he was more interested in scamming bits of turkey from his grandmother than he was with any of the presents he had just opened. Kids.

The rest of the day was spent with family, eating, drinking and laughing. Oh the drinking. I usually do not drink a whole lot cause I am usually out, and usually driving myself home. But stick me on a chair with nowhere to go, and the merlot kept flowing. A lovely merlot I had gotten as a gift. I don't get drunk, but rather I get very sleepy and I was soon dead to the world on the couch, with noone being able to resuscitate me. lol

It was a good break from all the work at the office. Whereas most people are kinda on auto pilot at work in the last 2 weeks of the year, I seem to be on overdrive, so the down time is so appreciated.

Today I food shop - as I am having friends over tomorrow (still no idea what I am cooking so this may be a long visit to Hi-Lo); think of some serious 2013 KPIs for my life - as I need to ensure things keep moving in my life; primp - as I have a function to attend later; and hopefully sneak in some sleep - as I once again, am suffering from insomnia on the one day I can actually sleep as long as I want to.



  1. Glad you got drink and be very merry! sometimes with all the hoopla going on it seems like something you must survive. It's a great time of the year, but i really really prefer december the 26th.

  2. Thankfully, I've been off from work so I'm thrilled with my extra long holiday. I ended up bonding with Sassy Spitfire (the 85-year old aunt), The Traveler and The Kid (and the Purple Princess stopped by briefly). My Christmases are getting more and more quiet. Not that it bothers me, but what a difference from where my life used to be with noise, presents, an over-abundance of food and drinks, and of course, festive chaos. Glad got your wine! LOL! It was a great Christmas for you -- and well deserved.

  3. Oh you sound like me when I have wine! It's an instant nap inducer for me.... LOL Happy New Year!!
