Well, I managed to put up my Christmas tree this year. I don’t know if anyone else will see it, but it is up. Plus all of the outdoor garland. I even played Christmas music while I did it. I am wearing a Santa hat right now (it was in the box). No ornaments yet, but there’s a star. Hopefully the cats won’t destroy everything while I am up in the city tomorrow night for a little holiday party.
Speaking of parties, I have too many and thus don’t have any specific birthday plans. The holiday festivities started off on Friday at Anna‘s for a little tree trimming, egg nogging, and crafting (talk about a word to scare boys away).
I also have holiday parties this Saturday and next, and with me working in the city during the week, there is just no other time to throw a party. I had wanted to do a holiday party since I was planning on decorating, but I was too slow with the planning.
The holiday panic hasn’t quite hit me yet. I just had my annual “woah, my birthday is in less than a week” revelation. Next up is “crap, it is too late to order anything online and get it to arrive on time, and that means I am too late to mail anything to my parents anyway, now what?” panic.
Right now I have been focused on work and staying in touch with everyone in the city and in San Jose, but it is hard to find time for everything. I haven’t even been to the gym in weeks. But I tell myself that I am still transitioning and I really do plan on going to the gym in SOMA one of these days.
Next up is skiing!
