Christmas With The Kids

December 31st, 2018

I only had to work one day last week – Thursday (12/27) – but boy was it a doozy. The work itself didn’t stress me out, but my coworkers sure did! One was playing his music louder than normal and the other would not stop clearing his throat frequently. In a two minute period he did it 9 times! Ugh. I could not wait to get out of that place!

Friday (12/28) was our Christmas with the kids. Originally ES was working and wasn’t going to be able to make it but he showed up. Good thing I bought an extra gift card just in case for a game we ended up playing (UNO Attack with prizes). :)

The kids got me a Funko Pop flocked Grumpy Bear and Joe a card game and a $25 Red Robin Gift Card which was nice. We’ll probably be eating there in the next week or two since I’m due for a free birthday burger soon.

The kids seemed to really like their gifts – we gave them each a Google Home Mini (we bought a three pack and are really enjoying ours), money, and some stocking stuffers.

After our dinner of ham and all the sides (including my homemade mac & cheese everyone raved about), we played the aforementioned UNO Attack and then Aggravation. I believe the kids ended up leaving sometime between 10 and 11 pm so it was a nice long visit. I recently subscribed to Spotify so I had a playlist of 30+ Christmas songs on repeat through the evening.

We were all suffering an introvert hangover on Saturday (12/29) so we didn’t shower or leave the house at all and Wookie spent most of the day napping.

Sunday (12/30) we ran a few errands in the morning, took down and packed away all the Christmas decorations in the afternoon, and went to see a few decorated houses in the early evening.

Haven’t done much today except more errands, doing laundry, and cleaning the house. Our “big” New Years Eve plans is having ribs for dinner and going to bed at a decent hour because I want to check the sales tomorrow. NYE isn’t that exciting if you’re not the partying type.
