you know what? i'm finally, kinda sorta, almost, got this whole christmas thing down.
ok, i was still doing some last minute shopping on christmas eve, but still it wasn't as crazy last minute as years past. ugh, does that mean i truly am getting old? never mind, i don't want to talk about it.
although we initially planned to just give Z $100 & call it good this year (beings last year was the worst christmas ever bc he only got 12 presents - omg what a deprived child he is!!!), we couldn't help ourselves. we picked up a few things here, a few things there, on & on until wait a minute, we're not giving him $100 too!!!
i got up early in the morning, made some coffee & called my mom over. yes, we're talking again, um, we weren't talking for awhile [again], her game, not mine, not sure where the blog left off. anyways, yes, talking & she nice even, which is a bonus. she came over to watch Z open presents & hang out for a couple of hours, then she was off to work. the visit was good, so i have no complaints.
Z made out like a bandit. he played skylander giants, put together some lego bits, we played battleship, checked out his microscope & that was only like 1/2 the score. i'm going to see muse in jan, so i'm a happy camper & B, well, i got him a jacket that i think he likes & a phone case that didn't fit, so that's still in the works...
but nobody cried.
