I really enjoy these 2-week Christmas breaks we get every year. I know the dog likes having me around more. I spent the first few days working on a few projects but since then I’ve been in full enjoyment mode.
I went to Jackson for Christmas, but stayed for only a day. Once again I just wanted to be in my own home and the dog was unhappy being cooped up. I didn’t have a lot of Christmas spirit this year until Christmas Eve. I’ve enjoyed having a low-key year in terms of holidays and not doing much to celebrate. Next year I think I want to start some of my own traditions. Maybe I’ll do that traveling thing I keep telling myself I’m going to do. One of these years I want to spend Christmas in my home even if I have to buy tickets for everyone.
Once again there weren’t a lot of gifts because people didn’t have money to spend. I know Christmas isn’t all about getting presents, but I do miss getting presents. I like being surprised. Maybe things will be better next year. What did I get?
- Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 1 on blu-ray
- A new wallet to replace the one I accidentally washed a while back
- Dexter coasters (early present that I got a few months ago)
I did buy myself some CDs, clothes, video games, and blu-rays. Every time I tried shopping for others, I found good deals on stuff that I wanted for myself. I’m going to get good use out of everything.
