Christmas Eve’s Pasts
Merry Christmas Eve!! I can’t believe it – I logged nine…NINE (!!) hours of sleep last night. Shane logged eleven. Guess the beer-as-big-as-my-head-that-I-couldn’t-finish + the white russian “dessert” during HIMYM (obsessed with this show…it’s awesome 😉 ) really did me in.
A few ways this Christmas Eve differs from those in the past:
- On Christmas Eve in 2009, I worked up until noon at the BIC. Oh, and I was also pretty miserable. Somehow, I mustered up holiday spirit.
- On Christmas Eve 2008, I had no idea where my life was going to take me. I had just quit my job in order to try an procure a promotion. So I rang in both Christmas and the New Year jobless and unsure of what the heck I was doing with my life (on January 5th, I found out that I got the job, and went back to the BIC as a project planner)
- On Christmas Eve 2007, Shane was working up until midnight. This was our first Christmas both working grown up jobs. So instead of going to my parent’s house to celebrate, they came to our house where Shane joined us at midnight.
- Christmas Eve 2003-2006, I don’t really remember. HA! It involved copious amounts of alcohol, parties, and Mario Go Kart. I was still in my “party-phase” during this phase of my life, I think.
I think I like this Christmas Eve the best.
On Christmas Eve in 2010, after sleeping for nine + hours, we woke up and gave the petski’s one early Christmas present. I then went to spin class and we spent the day with both Shane and my family.
That’s how this year’s going to go. However, we’re also expecting a big snow today, so really who knows how many twists and turns the story will have!!
Have a wonderful day, friends!!!
