One week til Christmas

It certainly doesn’t feel like Christmas is soon. I used to have a Christmas tree, lights, and other decorations, but the rats in the old apartment chewed it all up. It all had to be thrown away. My mom got me one thing I wanted:


A Hello Kitty sweater

It’s always hard during holidays because nobody can afford plane tickets to see each other. I’ve asked my mom to Skype but she won’t do it, she doesn’t really want anything to do with technology I guess. I ask her every year and it’s always a no. I feel kind of hurt that she doesn’t want to make the effort to video chat with me. I don’t know, I can’t help but feel like she doesn’t really care to see me even if it’s only by video chat. Maybe I’m overreacting.

Thank You Kya

I just want to thank Kya for sending me this lovely Christmas card, it just arrived today.

Christmas is almost over

As Christmas is coming to an end, I can’t help but feel a little bit sad and a little bit relieved to be honest. Christmas is my favorite holiday, but missing my family is the toughest part of it. I ended up buying myself a couple more gifts, a Hello Kitty necklace and a Hello Kitty phone case and wallet in one. My favorite thing I got was my Hello Kitty Dream Diary, I’ve been writing in it often to express my thoughts. I spent some of the day with my friend, it was nice to have some company over since I’m out here alone.

Ever since I moved to the Phoenix, Arizona area, it’s never felt like Christmas because I’m used to the snow back east. I think I’m going to leave my tree, lights, and other decorations up until New Year’s. I put in so much effort to decorate and I want them up a little bit longer.

What did you get for Christmas? What was your favorite gift?

Merry Christmas (Eve)!

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it. I got some things I wanted that I’m happy with, but I already posted those. I’m really missing my family right now, I wish I could see them. I don’t have any plans for Christmas except for relaxing.

Sorry this post was so short, I just have nothing to really say. Just enjoy the day and I hope you get what you asked for.

My first Christmas card so far

I got a Christmas card from my parents the other day, sorry the pictures are a bit blurry:

Front: For a Special Daughter
Inside: You’re more incredible, more loved, and mean more than words could ever say. So lucky to have a daughter as wonderful as you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Love mom and dad.

Switched hosts

I want to thank the lovely Kya for hosting me at Giraffe Host. I appreciate the effort she put in to switch me over from my old host.

Anyway, I put up all my Christmas decorations yesterday, here is my little Christmas tree:

I think it turned out okay. I had such a hard time getting the lights in the window that when moving my bookshelf it collapsed. It had to go in the garbage. It was one of those cheap flimsy ones that aren’t real wood.

I wasn’t going to decorate this year because it’s so much work, but I got bored. :))

Merry Christmas

It’s still Christmas here on the west coast, hope everyone had a good day. I spent most of the day sleeping.

I think I have a virus on my computer or WordPress is acting up, but it won’t allow me to upload pictures of what I got for Christmas. My friend made my gift, it’s a vase with potpourri and lights with lace and a bow on top. I also got an iTunes gift card from her. From my parents, I got some stuff from the “Sleep” Bath & Body Works line. I love the Stress Relief and Sleep stuff. This year it didn’t really feel like Christmas, maybe because it was in the 60’s. It’s nice here though, but I’m used to white Christmases in Pennsylvania. I don’t want to move back there though, it’s not for me. I miss my family lots during this time. This year was better than last year.

Thanksgiving wasn’t so great

I didn’t have a good Thanksgiving, no family to spend time with and no good food. It was just like any other day. Every year around the holidays I really miss my family, it’s hard not seeing them. Christmas will be about the same. I’m putting my decorations up this weekend because I love decorating for Christmas. I hope everyone had a better Thanksgiving than me and sorry this post was so short. Not much to say really.

Merry Christmas!

This is the first year I’ve been without my family during the holidays and it has been tough. I opened gifts via video chat with my parents. I really miss them. I wish they could have flown out here or I could have flown out there, but because of lack of money and weather it wasn’t possible. Anyway, I got some cool Bath & Body Works stuff and the cutest stuffed penguin from my mom.

It made me smile.

Apparently I will be video chatting again but also with my brother, sister in law, and nephews when they will be over at my parent’s house tomorrow.

It’s definitely not the same as seeing them in person. I hope everyone else has a better holiday than I’m having at least.

Christmas tree is up already

I put my Christmas tree up today, as well as the rest of my decorations. I only have a 4′ tall tree, but here it is:

If you look closely, you can see a computer and cell phone ornament. My mom knows me so well. :))

I went to the store today, and surprisingly it wasn’t busy being Black Friday and all. Then again, there aren’t any Black Friday deals at the dollar store. I just love Dollar Tree, I save so much money getting things from there.

I also wanted to share something else I love.
