Happy Wednesday!!! And happy two days to CHRISTMAS!!!!! I had a brief thought of “gee, am I being overly Christian by being all Christmas?” and then I thought “nah, I’m just being me” and stopped worrying about it.
Reading: My sister sent me this amazing twitter thingy which I hope I am embedding correctly. Because it perfectly describes the weirdness of Christmas through the eyes of someone being embedded in the celebration for the first time.
Watching: I just started Jingle Jangle. Those of you who have seen it, is it as good as it looks like it will be?
Thinking: Angie had an earthquake! I need an update on that! And Genevieve’s son is turning NINE!!! That’s like a Big Boy, right? No longer a little boy? And Emily’s Christmas mail order gift, WHAT IS HAPPENING THERE? Also, Patricia and Maria’s snowstorm, Filmikudhi’s dog present plans, Popka’s hosting on Boxing Day, and Courtney’s bedroom furniture.
Listening: Whatever, I’m putting up an American Christmas song!!!! Straight No Chaser has a new album, recorded in quarantine, and it is lovely. This song/video in particular.
Now, question for you! Really pretty simple, it’s Christmas week, the holiday is about togetherness and caring and stuff, so I want to check in with you! What are you doing for the next few days? Are you keeping yourself happy?
My parents are coming over tomorrow afternoon and we are going to have a small family Christmas at my place. All our packages successfully arrived at my sister’s house, and Dad is dropping off a bag of presents for Grandpa and his caregivers at the front gate of the nursing home tomorrow. I’m a little worried about my aunt who has spent every Christmas of her entire life with Grandpa and can’t this year, but I am sure she will figure something out to make her happy. My Dad’s kidney stone is still doing it’s weird kidney thing, but he has a pill schedule all worked out now so it’s not too bad. And tomorrow we get to see our church’s virtual Christmas service, which will include a virtual choir that my parents were part of, and a virtual Pageant that should be fun.
