It’s Christmas Day! Sterling and I stayed up late last night playing video games. So we slept in until 10AM. I don’t think anybody started opening presents until noon. I made buckwheat almond pecan walnut banana pancakes 🙂 and Jo made scrambled eggs.
As far as presents go I received mostly clothes. This time however I like them all. Docker pants and Arizona shirts. Plus some church clothes and 15 pairs of socks (a little too much on the socks, mom ;). I also got a Black Diamond Climbing helmet 🙂 I didn’t really get presents for anyone either (because I procrastinated and I’m going to do it in January), but I did find some funny things from around the house and wrapped them; i.e. I wrapped Sterling’s soap and back scrubber and gave it to him as “the girl next door.” mwa ha ha!
We also talked to Bruce and Sarka and their three cute kids on Skype (video conferencing over the web). That was really awesome. Lately we’ve been using it a lot. Bruce said he made foot prints in the ashed in their fire place to make it look like Santa had been there!
Today it hit me: everything I want to accomplish in life I don’t do because I play video games. (Work out, write a book, build cool stuff, etc.) The reason I play them is to avoid “labor.” Could I really give them up completely? I gave them up before to learn web design. I think I’ll give them up again real soon to play with my RC Airplanes. What do you think?
I am in Utah for Christmas. The reason I’m here is to move all my stuff to Arizona. I’m renting a small trailer and towing it with my Jeep 🙂
It’s nice to spend one last Christmas together – again. Though this year I was major unprepared. I think I’ll be giving everyone their presents in January! I did a little shopping today at Wal Mart (buying 88 cent gifts from the bins). Other than that I’ve realized that I forgot to calculate travel expenses into my budget – especially for the trailer rental. Plus, my car insurance bill is coming due in January… so it looks like the “extra” money I planned on is not so “extra” anymore 🙁
We’re having a snow storm right now in UT which looks pretty cool to watch through the window inside a comfortable home. We made 18 plates of cookies to take to our neighbors. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas! Oh yeah, “Humbug!”
Now here are some PICTURES:
p.s. i updated this post: Me at a pretty princess party
This was me in my previous life…
Okay I guess I should explain… this is a birthday party for my friend Tamra. She likes to dress up and I figured that I would too, just this once. I think it turned out rather well, though it did worry my mom when she saw it. No mom, I’m not a drag queen! I’m just really good at playing pretty princess, as you can see!
Oh yeah, I hurt my foot too…
Man these past few weeks have been crazy and I’m going to sum it all up in a few sentences…
- I hurt my right foot from a Century Cactus wound and a bad sprain to the toe
- My new job is great and now I’m in the office a lot
- I bought a Futon so I can sleep better and I think it is great!
Well that’s all for now, Later!
