It’s been a busy couple of days but it’s been nice. Christmas was such a long day – we went to GG’s parents’ house at 9am for breakfast and presents, then went to my mom’s place for a while (and more food and presents), then back to his parents’ house for dinner. And we left around 9pm. It was a long day. We didn’t actually get overloaded with presents, which was nice for a change. Mostly cash and gift cards (always appreciated), edible things, and useful stuff like soap or pajamas. Also, I took my library book with me and finished reading it while waiting for dinner, yay!
Friday GG and his dad went to see a movie. I had another doctor’s appointment for my foot. I’m taking this anti-inflammatory for a month, then going back again to get it checked out. Also these pills can give you an upset stomach, so I’m taking a second prescription to try to prevent that. Yay. So far, so good, so we’ll see how I am in a month. Then we went back to his parents’ house for Christmas leftovers for dinner, followed by much-awaited food shopping at Trader Joe’s.
GG and I each had different errands to do Saturday, mine included getting a haircut! It was my annual haircut, so you know, it was a big one. I think my hairdresser went a little crazy, she took off a bit more than I would have liked. I wasn’t upset or anything, I know it’ll grow, but I was not happy with it when I got home. Also she made it really smooth and flat, and it just made my head look really fat, so I was not digging it. Then later we went out to dinner with Ed and Kate, who moved to Arlington, VA, but were up visiting for Christmas. That was nice, I couldn’t even remember the last time we’d seen them! They want us to come visit them in DC sometime, which I am totally up for, and they want GG to paint a small mural in their bedroom, which sounds really cool. After dinner, GG and I went to Barnes and Noble to drink coffee and browse the books. Then I kind of was able to stay up to watch SNL.
Today I am much happier with my hair. Now that I was able to style it myself, I was able to get some more volume to balance out the fatness of my head, and it looks much cuter. I went to check out the yarn sale at Jo Ann’s, but the selection was pitiful, so I didn’t get anything. So I’ve been home doing stuff.
Other plans for our time off include a visit to Di Bruno Brothers and the Reading Terminal Market, dinners with several other friends we haven’t seen in a while, and of course TMBG! I still can’t believe I have another whole week off work! I’m going to forget how to get to the office by the time I go back!
