I went down to NYC to stay with my mom for a few days on Thursday. I packed minimally because I knew Angus would be driving down with the rest of my crap, which means I was without my computer (GASP!) for two days. I know. I don’t know how I survived with just my iPad and smart phone and my mom’s computer. It’s like it was the stone ages.
I had a lot of fun with my mom. We went Christmas shopping and got our nails done and giggled a whole lot. I also got to babysit this little bug yesterday morning:
She chooses her own outfits, can you tell? I think she’ll be a fashion icon when she’s older.
I’m now in NJ at Angus’s parents’ house. They have a farm here, so we always get to have farm fresh eggs when we visit. I guess the little chickies are just starting to lay their first ever eggs, so they’re super small with an unusually rich yolk; it was such a treat. We fried them with some very crispy and salty hashbrown cubes.
Anyway, I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a happy non-end of the world and very happy holidays. My mom and I had a discussion over saying happy holidays vs. merry christmas. I was very firmly in the happy holidays camp, mostly because I feel like this is a holiday season more than just a particular day of celebration, regardless of one’s religious affiliation.
I wish I were one of those people who could give “tips” on how to keep living healthily during the month of December, but I’m not, mostly because I fail to follow them. I’m just enjoying myself and trying to be restful. I hope you all are taking care of yourselves, too.
