Well the presents are wrapped, school is finished, the Christmas parties are done. In just a few short days we'll be unwrapping the gifts, getting together with family, eating, drinking and being merry. So why don't I feel very ho-ho-ho-happy?
I guess I have had a pretty busy time of it lately. I'm probably mostly just tired. And I think sometimes we put a lot of pressure on special occasions and holidays to live up to our expectations. We think that Christmas should be so special and shiny and merry, and I think it's hard for it to live up to the hype.
So I'm just going to take things one day at a time. (Which is how I try to live all the time.) This afternoon we're heading down to my sister's place to have a BBQ dinner. We usually get together once a week, but lately end-of-year festivities have gotten in the way. So tonight will be our first meal together in a while, so I should plan to enjoy it! (It's a bit sad when you have to remind yourself to enjoy things that should be effortlessly enjoyable - so I guess I must be tired!)
Chris and I went to Lizotte's in Newcastle last night and saw the Bondi Cigars with some friends. Check them out in this video (not taken by me, just found on YouTube).
