The few days after Christmas are so depressing. The next morning when you wake up the festive tunes are already off the radio and Santa’s long gone for another 360+ days. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely suffering from the post-Christmas blues. My decorations certainly aren’t going anywhere just yet though. It’s always a slow transition for me to take them down (closer to mid-January) since it’s such a happy space!
I spent Christmas at my parents’ place near the beach, where we did quite a bit of baking, present-opening, and of course, eating. My sister Ry was the first one up at 5 a.m. and a little while later, came in with our other sister, Carm, to give a full report on all of the presents in the living room that Santa left behind. And when the whole fam got downstairs, Sheba was happy to lay in the middle of the room for a quick photo and “LOOK AT ALL THIS STUFF, MOM!!” expression, and then proceeded to step over all of the presents to check (read: sniff) everything out before the tearing of the wrapping paper began.
It was a very happy Christmas, indeed! Sheba received a new toy and some treats and I received several things on my wish list like a new cookware set, Funko Pops (Ted and I are totally obsessed with these), some books, and the always-handy, gift cards.
This week, it’s back to work for me, but a short week due to New Year’s (last holiday off until May)! I’m not sure what the plan is just yet, but I’m just happy to be ringing in the New Year with Ted!
How was your Christmas? Do you have any exciting plans for NYE?
