it's taken me quite a bit of time to get around to making a blog post.
this has been the biggest, most busy holiday season i have ever experienced.
i have so many christmas gatherings. soooo many.
well, i'm lumping thanksgiving in there because its all so close together.
we went to alabama to see my family and stayed with my parents. our family gathering was small because people were sick and also my cousin had just had a baby and couldn't be there. not seeing my cousin really put a downer on things but i got to see my other cousins and trade pokemon with one of my best friends and super smash brothers with my cousin's little boy. we took beau and everyone loved him so much.
we have a little nighttime christmas present swap with my parents. and i am so happy. they got me a sewing machine so i can make stuff now. i haven't opened it because i haven't had a day of down time. not even today.
the sunday we were in alabama i got to see the little girl i had baby sat years ago and her parents and her younger sister who was an infant last time i saw her.
on the way back i managed to hurt my arm somehow and i dont know how-- which is why today i didn't get to rest i went to the doctor because it never stops hurting.
on the 23 we went to fatherinlaws house for their family christmas gathering and i was in a dark place and didn't really enjoy it. we left beau at home so we could actually enjoy the people that were there and that was nice.
on christmas day stan and i opened our stockings and gave beau his gifts. then we went and had lunch with his mother and grandmother.
after that we went to see his cousin and his cousin's partner which was nice because we hadn't seen them in months.
my husband went to the movies with a friend and they slept over at the apartment and we had some chill time. but my arm and sensory overload gave me a hard time and it ended up not being as much fun for me as i had hoped.
and that leaves us with today. i went to the urgent care for my arm, we got chinese and watched a movie. i took the pills they gave me for my arm pain and dozed off the whole afternoon.
i'm going to post a bunch of photos. some of them might be duplicates.
