So, last night we had an "Ugly Sweater" party. The party was supposed to be for Brian's co-workers, of which 0.0 came... I was kind of bummed, since I made so much food, etc. It still was good, though, as my hand full of friends were able to come. What was really funny, is that we all ended up at the same thrift store about 30 mins. from here. It was slim pickens. We all had to work hard to find an "ugly sweater." They guy that won it, Ben, really deserve it. He looked absolutely ridiculous. Brian came in 2nd. I was pretty proud of the sweater I found for him. It looks like it could've came straight out of "Less Than Zero." We all had a really good time, but I drank way too much. 'Tis the season...for a hangover, I guess.
Today I finished my shopping. What a great feeling. Everyone was out of the iPod I wanted for Brian, so I had to drive 2 hours, each way, to get him one. What b.s. Anyway, glad I got it. I also had to go to 3 stores, before someone had Madden 12 in stock for Ryne. I ended up getting it right off the display (last one). I enjoyed having most of the day to myself. I listened to some good tunes, talked to a good friend, and had myself a nice, late lunch at a restaurant. Life is good.
So, tomorrow is Christmas Eve. The boys are so excited! The only concrete plans we have at this point, are to go to breakfast, and then go to church at 5. Maybe in between, we'll go to the movies or something. Well, I better go. Brian wants to watch "Christmas Vacation," which is his fave holiday movie. It's just okay to me. I love "A Christmas Story," but he doesn't care for it. Oh well, maybe I can talk Cal into watching it with me tomorrow.
Please enjoy your day tomorrow. I really hope that your day is full of family, friends, and laughter. It's easy to forget what Christmas is all about, but hopefully we'll all do our best. It's not only the season for hangovers....most importantly, it's the season to rejoice in Jesus, and enjoy the wonderful things he's given us in this life.
Hopefully, we'll talk tomorrow.
