According to the clock its the last day of 2012. I wish I could say its been a great year but its had its ups and downs. One definite up was meeting Jon. He gets me out doing things at least. Oh, and my dad being cancer free was good news. I just did my usual sitting around with things to do on my mind and not doing them. Go me.
It turns out we’re going out for New Years. We’re going to Jon’s friends girlfriends place. There’s going to be another couple there too. I really hope I don’t feel too awkward but I’m sure I will. Truth be told, I was kind of liking the idea of just the two of us. I had these elaborate plans. I was going to do what I could to make it special. Hopefully we’ll still have fun though. It will be nice to get out for New Years Eve for once. This leaves Zach stranded at home, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he came up with plans tomorrow.
I hope you all have a good time, whatever it is you’re doing!
Ugh I need a shower. Damn House marathon on Oxygen every Thursday.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I did. I got a Magic shirt and Cinderella DVD from Zach and the cutest beaded owl sculpture from Jon. Zach got lots of Magic “swag” and a nice set of headphones. I gave Jon a fox t-shirt (he loves foxes) and a set of Star Trek glasses.
I was so happy to have Jon over for Christmas. I know I have Zach, but a lot of the time I feel alone around the holidays. He’s such a great person and I’m so happy to have him in my life. He was very helpful in the kitchen too! At the end of the night he was snoring quietly next to me while Chloe was laying by my feet. I felt so lucky and so satisfied.
Every year I try so hard to make the house feel warm and welcoming, and like the holidays are a special time. It stresses me out. The week before Christmas I was just not feeling like I’d done a good job and pulled myself away from everybody and everything. I think I spent most of the week in bed. It really sucked. I just put too much pressure on myself, I think. I never baked cookies, and that really bothers me.
Not sure what we’ll be doing for New Years Eve. I’ll be spending it with Jon, I know that much. We might get together with a couple of friends and just hang out. Neither one of us is a real wild party person. We’re both very quiet and I think that’s one of the reasons we get along so well.
Looking forward to the new year! Hope you are too. I wish you all the best!
