I didn't sleep too well last night... and not because I was excited about Christmas! I did something last night that I probably should have done way back in October... I've just been too weak to do it. When Laura first suggested it several weeks ago, I didn't know if I'd be able to, but last night I finally decided it was time to let go. I didn't sleep well because of predictably (but rather vividly) sad dreams. Weird, I know, but I think my subconscious was ritualistically letting go, too, or something. Saying goodbye and all that. I just know I woke up crying in the wee hours of the morning, replaying everything that happened in the dream. I can't remember the last time I woke up crying... childhood? Who knows. Ah well. It's over now. Hello, new life.
Christmas morning, ahhhh.
I think the gifts I gave went over passing well, so I'm glad for that!
These are the most notable things I got:
- Doctor Who Season 3 (thank you, Chris!!)
- Sephora Brand Ultimate Blockbuster - Collector's Edition Palette + lip repulpant gloss (thanks Mom!)
- Heatable Aromatherapy Booties (I'm SERIOUS, you heat them up in the microwave and put them on your feet!)
- Handmade scarf and hat set
- Hoodie from Hawaii
- iPod to FM converter for my car
Chris also gave me my birthday present the other day, which was a new orange iPod nano. Very cute!
I'm house/pet-sitting for some family friends this weekend and part of next week. Good thing, too, I need the money. :)
Also: my mom is taking in a 15-yr-old German exchange student for 10 days after the New Year. ...Kinda weird, and I get the feeling I'm going to be the one trucking the girl around trying to entertain her. But it should be fun, I guess.
Well, that's about it! I hope everyone's Christmas (or winter-time holiday) was fantastic and brilliant and all that!
