Ever since my last post today, I did get a nap in before getting up for the day and watched TV, been online, writing, and snuggling up with Bing Crosby the cat. I did not go anywhere at all today – stayed home and had CSE come down for a few minutes to do a couple of things for me before she left again for the rest of the day. I did not have anymore company for the rest of the day – hoping that CSE would have come down for a while before my shower gal came to help me with my shower at 7 pm. KB is not here this weekend but my shower gal DB is here this weekend for KB. KB is having a weekend off for the Christmas holiday and DB is subbing for her.
My friend RB called me this evening a little after 9 pm and we chatted on the phone for a long time talking about a lot of things – Christmas Day plans and having me over for the holiday so I will not be alone for Christmas.
As for the rest of my day, it was nice and quiet…a good day. I am almost ready for bed. I am up late again tonight. The excitement of Christmas is definitely in the air even though I do not have Christmas with family this year. I can not wait to open my Christmas presents Christmas Day morning! The waiting game is driving me crazy!!!!!! I have to wait, upon my mom’s husband’s wishes, to open my Christmas presents. AARRGG!!
Right now I am going to say good night and God bless and come back tomorrow sometime.
Sleep is not that hard to find – exactly – I got my second wind a little late in the night that is all. Company left around midnight or so – I had dozed off a little bit while watching an episode of Cannon starring William Conrad. Remember Jake and the Fatman? That gentleman before Joe Penny and William Conrad worked together in a TV series. Actually I do not remember what I was actually watching before dozing off. I am just up late tonight – watching the Disney channel at 145 am this morning for the first time in a long time – been watching METV for the past several weeks now since I found out about that channel. It is a lot better than RTV!! Seriously.
With today being the 23rd of December, we have two days before Christmas now. I do have to admit that counting the days before Christmas has not crossed my mind at all this year – not interested this year. I do not know the reason why but I do have to admit that excitement is still in the air. I did not go anywhere for Thanksgiving or Christmas this year but in January or February, I do plan on seeing my parents in Arkansas for several days, though. I am looking forward to that first trip of the year, too – nervous as well. Do I want to travel? Yes, I do. I want to see family – did not see anyone this year but one day this past summer for my 41st birthday. It has been a little emotional for me between Thanksgiving and New Years this year – not seeing family is part of the problem. So much has happened since February that I can not really go into it or I will feel very emotional all over again – will not even explain why.
As for the year of 2011, only eight days left before the year is gone forever – a distant memory where I would really like it to be – I do have to admit that it has been one heck of a year for me. I am not complaining or anything – had several weeks and weekends I did not care for this year… that’s all.
This coming year, when other people will be making their resolutions, I will not be making any resolutions. I will continue to make changes in my life for the good and learn from the not so good moments in life along the way. I do have to admit that I intend on having the 2012 year be the best year when comparing it with 2011. The people I walked away from in 2010 and 2011 will remain where they are – in the past where they belong for good. I do not intend on rekindling any friendships with anyone I walked away from. The idea of being or getting hurt again is something far from my mind now anyway. I do know that when the 2012 year does come, writing here will not change or cease but changes are going to be made to my profile and the way I write here as of January 1, 2012.
