Did you think I died? Did you hope maybe I did? LOL
Be not afraid – I’m alive!! And back to update you on my ultra exciting life!
Christmas is over! Thank God if you ask me. I crave routine and normalcy and Christmas is all about weird routines and weird places and let’s face it – weird people – that you have to pretend you like.
My social anxiety goes into overdrive!
Despite the hives, we had a great Cmas and my kids got more presents than one person needs in a lifetime.
Rambo had texted me the week before Cmas and just said, “Hey – what size bra do you wear?”
OH SHIT was my first reaction. Then I started begging him NOT to buy me a bra.
He did it anyway. He got creative and looked at a bra in the laundry basket for a size. He got me a beautiful mint green rhinestone encrusted bra and matching thongs from Victoria Secret. Gorgeous and it fits. He got me a PINK yoga pants set and some perfume from the ‘ol VS too.
We, of course, attended church and one of my kids, of course, turned three shades of white during the mass and ended up throwing up in the church bathroom. I mean really – what’s Cmas mass without someone throwing up in the middle of it?
I watched White Christmas and Elf and Christmas Vacation too many times to count. I didn’t even gain weight….because I’ve had the flu for almost a week. I didn’t have the “in bed wanting to die” flu…but just generally don’t feel great and am nauseous so YAY for me – I didn’t gain the normal 10 lbs in 2 days like I usually do.
I saw my brother for the first time in 2 years for about 5 hours. That’s all I’m going to say about that.
I played Christmas Bingo
and liked it.
I worked every day of my 7 days off just to forget how much I missed Rambo. I have four more days off coming up and I’m not exactly sure what I’ll be doing those four days.
Oh wait – yes I do! I’m dying to take down my Cmas decorations and get our life back to normal.
Normal is good for crazy people like me.
Rambo has to work every day so we won’t celebrate New Year’s Eve or Day. I’m a little nervous about him working that holiday because the inmates have been acting up lately. Holidays are tough in prison. When the inmates get no mail and no visitors – they finally realize they are all alone – even on Christmas. And then they lash out at the guards. I just found out that a woman guard was assaulted on Cmas Eve. Rambo will tell me the details tonight…but I’m not sure I actually want to hear them.
That’s pretty much it. Wasn’t that knock-your-socks-off exciting???
Back to work for me. I’m sitting in my office with the tree lights on and Cmas music blaring. It’s just me and another girl in the front office today and that’s how I like it. I have no problem working the holidays so other people can be with their families. Rambo and I will email each other all day about how winning the lottery would fix everything.
I’d never leave his arms. Well, except to go out to buy shoes. Duh.
Bring on the new year!!!
