It Finally Feels Like Christmas!

Standard

I’ve been so busy working and getting ready for Christmas that the actual holiday has really snuck up on me! I just got off work at 3pm today and realized, “Hey, it’s Christmas eve!”
Not a big deal though since we don’t have any big plans and my Christmas gift from Justin shouldn’t be here for a week or so. Or is it??? When I got off work I came home to find that my gift arrived very early! A shiny new laptop! This is actually not only my first laptop I’ve ever owned, but also the first brand new computer I’ve ever owned! It was surprisingly fast to get up and running, although there may have been a few setbacks due to outdated owners not knowing what they were doing… But now, not an hour later, I have entered the tech world! Now I just need one of then fancy internet phones…
I also got a special delivery tonight! A little while ago I got a “Fine Red Wine Sampler” from my brother, Austin! Plus he got me a really nice wireless mouse for my laptop! Pretty good job for him, I expected the mouse (since it’s what I told him I needed), but I was very surprised with the wine (which includes our 2 favorite bottles shipped to us later!)! Austin usually gets me something electronic, a gift card, or cash. That’s really all I ever expect from him because he really isn’t much of a shopper, except for with electronics. He never goes for something personal that he will have to choose. So for him to send me wine, and good wine at that, was a very big surprise!
My mom and grandma gave me an awesome gift too, SNOW TIRES! Well, they are technically all terrain tires, but for us in Washington with street tires, it is an amazing upgrade! We were sliding all over the road with all the snow slush and really couldn’t afford new tires, so we were excited by the gift! They work perfect too! The car feels much safer now!
We also found some homemade treats on our gate from our neighbors, and my boss gave me a $175 Christmas bonus and let me choose a Lemongrass Spa gift set from work (I got the Cucumber Foot Fetish Set). Not bad! I’m actually really wanting to use it now after talking about it!
We have several wrapped gifts from my in-laws too which we plan on opening tomorrow, so we can’t report what we got there, but it is nice to have something to look forward too!
As for tomorrow, still no clue what we are doing, but I’m sure we will figure something out!
Until then, enjoy Christmas Eve!
