Winter storms are here dumping some snow on us and it is beautiful outside! I took a vacation day and stayed home from work because I hate driving in snow. What am I doing on day 42 of being sober? Wrapping Christmas presents because for the first time EVER I actually have some Christmas shopping done by early December. Usually I’m right there with the men, shopping on Christmas Eve! (Apologies to men who get it done before then)
I’m pretty pleased with myself to be honest haha. I’ve been hitting up the local Christmas craft sales and have picked up some lovely handmade locally made soaps, lotions, teas, candles, etc. And then our library was having a book sale so I bought some books for myself and some DVDs for my mom for Christmas (documentaries and interesting looking ones that I’m sure she will enjoy). I threw some mulling spices in a pot with some apple juice, lit some cinnamon scented candles, put on some Christmas music and wrapped away. WHO AM I? This is not me at all lol, I get so frustrated and overwhelmed and sad at Christmas! A snow day has always been a great reason to day drink, not drink spiced apple juice while wrapping presents.
It sure is pretty outside though….
