Oh being home for Christmas is so nice. I took a few days off from work, so I’m extending my long weekend as much as I can. Where did the days go when I used to get a full month off in college? Even though I don’t get that luxurious break anymore, I’ll take a few days where my eyes can take a break from staring at my Outlook and enjoy a little more relaxation and family time. It’s well deserved isn’t it?
Today was enjoyable. We had a ton of snow which finally made it feel like real Christmas. We also saw my Aunt Susan, Uncle FD, Katie and Annie, which is always a treat. (It also involved Margarita pizza from Bertuccis which didn’t hurt).
When we got back we played bananagram and watched the Sound of Music (one of my all time favorites). I must say, my family really seemed to enjoy my beautiful rendition of ‘Climb Every Mountain’ (worst song in the movie) – it should probably count as my act of kindness today – sharing my beautiful voice with them.
Kelly also did my hair tonight which is exciting! This is the first time she has highlighted my hair since becoming beauty-stylist-extraordinaire. I’m still in the process of having it done, so hopefully it comes out A.OK. I’ll post some pictures of my transformation tomorrow as she is going to give me a fab new cut as well, but I think she may fall asleep if she does it now because it’s getting so late. Sleeping + scissors + my hair = not a good idea. I’ll wait til tomorrow thankyouverymuch.
My kindness today:
My poor grandfather is in the hospital. He had to go yesterday and they decided to keep him overnight and now he’s staying again tonight. He has cellulitis in his leg/foot and it was causing him pain. This is the second time the poor thing had to go to the hospital during a big occasion. First the wedding, now Christmas! Jeeze Pa, we can take a hint – if you don’t want to participate in family get-togethers just let us know – no need to go to the hospital!
Anyway, I’ll get to the point, we visited Pa in the hospital tonight. He was excited to see us and seemed to be in very good spirits! I think he likes the attention and having the older nurses to flirt with.
….Ok, I still have dye in my hair and I think I’ve lost Kelly… better go find her….
