I Am Happy (Pictures)

Both my boys are here. One is napping, one is watching videos.

It’s my favorite time of year.

Melodye (newport2newport) wanted people to post virtual Christmas things for her this year, as she can’t really decorate this year.

So, Melodye, the following’s for you: pictures of things that have meant Christmas for me the past several years.


My Tree 2007
My tree this year. I used a special Cross 6x lens filter to get the special pointy effect on the lights.


A visit to the crazy house in Upper Arlington.

Christmas Dinner
Good food!
Mac & cheese, Honey Baked Ham, dressing, chicken (or turkey), greens (mustard and turnip), and a roll full of butter. Yummy.

Fruits
The Banana Ornament

My Banana Ornament
The banana again.

** Melodye wanted to know why this is my favorite and how it came to live in my collection. Well, I love bananas. They’re so neat. I don’t usually go with this style of ornament, but when I spotted it at Target years ago, I knew I had to have it. Once that is up, I know it’s time.

Village Building at Night

Snow People

How the  Grinch Stole Christmas
How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Yes, I have it on VHS. Old school style. I apparently never got the DVD. The tape just came back in to my possession today.

Santa Adam

Next year, my holidays will be quite different. As Adam said this afternoon: “We’ll start our own traditions.” :) Can’t wait.

Happy Holidays, everyone! :)

Ow Ow F*ckity Ow

Adam is here, resting on the futon, doing something with his computer. We just got back from Upper Arlington, where we went in search of the crazy house. I found it very easily this time! Yay me.

We also went to Walgreens, where I bought the big 500 count bottle of Ibuprofen 200. My throat. My ears. I get about ten minutes of day when they’re not killing me. Other than that, I have to load up on the drugs to at least take the edge off, even if the pain never goes away. I can’t even swallow without flinching anymore. I don’t know what else to do.

Actually, I am tempted to ask my co-worker if she can get her father, an ear-nose-throat specialist, to recommend someone I can go to. I’ve been suffering from this for almost three months now, have seen two doctors, gone through three different rounds of anti-biotics, and I’m taking pain pills and putting in that nose spray stuff, and nothing’s helping. Every night I can expect to be in near tears because of the pain.

Other than that constant pain, I’ve been having fun. Adam got here on Thursday, my birthday, which made it a good day automatically. But I had a fun half-day at work. People gave me gifts and cards, and Heather bought me cocoa and a donut from Tim Horton’s. Yummy. Adam took me to lunch at Brio, where I had the Garganelli Carbonara. That evening, we went to another free screening of Juno (where I got a different t-shirt!), and then we had ice cream at Jeni’s Ice Cream. They serve weird flavors there, like one with cayenne pepper and one with goat cheese. I had the Belgian Chocolate ice cream. It was good.

Saw The Golden Compass also. Win.

Now that it’s Sunday (Semagic has an auto time updater), I’m gonna go try to rest. Aidan’s coming over tonight and well, there is no rest when Aidan’s around. Later!
