I don’t actually have much to say, but just wanted to shout a little bit about the awesome holiday I had!
I spent the morning drinking coffee on a videocall with my dad and my young siblings. Their ages range from seven to thirteen, so there’s never a dull moment when I talk with them. Add in the adrenaline rush of Christmas morning and boy oh boy was that a blast. I chatted with my baby sister while we listened to our dad fight with the new technology as he tried to set up my brother’s shiny new iPad. My stepmom made breakfast, my middle brother showed me how to Floss™ (spoiler alert: he’s WAY better at it than me), and my oldest brother actually stopped playing Fortnite long enough to come say hi. I was honored.
Then Trev woke up and we gave the dog his gifts. While Simon chomped away on a rawhide alternative “bone” we opened our gifts. Trevor loved his slippers (UGG for Men, which gave me a good chuckle) and I got a sweet haul of books and manatee socks. I have a weak spot for the tubby sea cows, so the socks brought a big grin to my face.
I spent a large chunk of the day talking with my mom’s side of the family, including my closest cousin that lives in California. Then I read the remaining fifty pages of The World of Thedas vol. 1 and we watched Christmas Chronicle. Kurt Russell has no business making Santa so attractive…
It was a wonderful, relaxing day filled with comfort foods and hot cocoa doing some of my favorite things; reading, eating, and cuddling my two favorite boys.
I’ll start reading World of Thedas vol. 2 tonight, and hopefully spend another year marinating in Dragon Age lore. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday if you celebrated!
It’ll probably be quiet here through the end of the week, but next week I’ll be back for the Goals Summary, the Recap, and the annual New Year, New Look! So, Busy busy busy.
Until then, Bloggos!
