I am officially done. I’m completely and utterly done Christmas shopping and I’m over it. I am at that the wall where I just don’t want to be in the “spirit” now. All of the packages should arrive through the weekend and finally done on Monday and I’m just going to throw everything in my office and not look at any of it for a week. Maybe the spirit will hit me again after that.
I hate to shop and it’s always been a joke between my husband and I about who the real girl is in our relationship because he loves to shop. So after spending most of the morning finishing my online shopping I tried to take a nap but couldn’t sleep to save my life and at this point, I think I really need to save my life. I’ve got a really bad sinus infection and since it’s wintertime the air is so dry that my nasal passages are dry and cracked and every time I blow my nose I get a nosebleed. My face is like a desert Joshua Tree. I’ve tried using aloe, a prescription face moisturizer, CeraVe, Aquafor, Ponds and nothing helps. Everything makes my poor face burn like I’ve been set on fire. I finally broke down and called my dermatologist today. She told me to buy a humidifier, to use a water based facial cleanser, to only wash my skin every three days, to quit taking my psoriasis meds and my allergy meds, and she called in a new moisturizer that I can only get by prescription. This is ridiculous. She said it has something to do with my autoimmune, the weather, the infection, blah, blah, blah. I did go to CVS and bought a humidifier. $75 but it’s a nice one I guess and I had a coupon for $8 off. That’s always a plus, when you can save money when shopping. I love that.
My baby boy came over this evening and went shopping with me so I wouldn’t have to go alone. I always adore it when he hangs with me and helps me out. I bought him a cake. It’s kind of our deal. He deals with my bullshit of going to 6 places to get crap done in one day and I buy him cake as a reward. We also stopped at the Mongolian BBQ place and got take out. It’s one of our favorite things to do. We load up, come home, unpack the shopping bags, and then eat our Chinese food. It’s like our reward for being out in 5 degree weather. The best part is that I get to catch up on everything going on in his life and he holds nothing back. He tells me about people who make comments about gay people in front of him without knowing he’s gay. He tells me that sometimes he just wants to tell some fat ass to leave him alone. The best is that he always tells me he loves me.
My baby girl will be turning 21 on Monday. I’m so proud of her. I have some surprises for her, I’m excited to see her get her gifts. She’s been sad lately and there is nothing worse for a mother than when her child feels sadness and she can do nothing about it but support that child. That’s all I try to do. Listen and support.
Sunday is a huge day for me and the hussy. 27 years together! I always get super stoked for this anniversary. He makes my heart happy.
So that’s about it today. No huge rant, nothing major. I’m sick, my doggy is sick, I’m over Christmas already, but I’m still fairly happy tonight. I hope you all had a lovely week.
