I just had one of the best Christmas’ ever! Jan met me at the apartment after work around 4:45. We lugged all of the pressies upstairs, did some organizing, then poured ourselves some drinks. We typically have our turkey dinner on Christmas Day, but decided to do it Christmas Eve this year. My mother always cooks a nice big meal, but this year we purchased individual turkey dinners from Antipastos, a restaurant and catering business here in St. Catharines. They were frozen meals with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn and gravy. We were shocked at how good everything was. We wouldn’t hesitate to do the same thing again.
After noms, we decided to open a present each. I already knew what one of mine was, since I ordered it online. I’m so happy with how it turned out!
Jan opened her Samsung tablet I bought her. I think she’s a little stressed about learning how to use it, but I tweaked it so it was fairly simple.
On Christmas morning, we both woke up fairly early. Present opening started around 8:30 and didn’t finish until about 3:00! We always go all out – it was so much fun!
The kitties enjoyed the treats Jan bought them:
They were all scampering around playing with ribbons too:
My friend at the airport did something awesome – he decorated Vyctor!
How cute is that????
I basically relaxed on Boxing Day. I don’t think I left the apartment building. Just got everything cleaned up and put away.
Had a great night last night. My friend came over and we ordered a pizza and watched three movies, including the first in the Lord of the Rings series. Loved it! I think our night ended around 3:00am! Fortunately for him, he didn’t have to go to work the next day. Me on the other hand…. Actually, I didn’t do too bad today. Kinda nodded off a few times later in the afternoon, but made it right through until 4:45. He’s coming by again tomorrow and we’re going to watch the next movie in the series. At least I won’t have to get up and go into work the next day!
Today’s symptoms: Really bad crushing pains in both hands today. It literally feels like they’re being squeezed in a vice. Not fun. Still dealing with a headache, but it was more than tolerable today. Looking forward to getting a good sleep tonight!
