Boy this is like exercising. You stop for a little while and forget about picking it back up again. I just downloaded the ability to blog from my phone so I can do it when I'm sitting someplace.
Christmas was a bit of a workout. Mostly since I have a hard time looking forward to things that are very important to me. The Comic being one of them. So while she was jumping all over the place in excitement I was pretty stoic about the whole thing. Although I started to get a mild case of excitement as the festive day approached.
It was nice to spend a holiday with someone I loved and cared about again. Besides spending last year with Asp for the evening before she flew to see her parents it's been a while. While Asp and I were never emotionally connected it was someone. However comparing this year and last is like comparing apples and lizards. So it was a Christmas to spend with someone which hasn't happened since 2003. Yes it's been a long time and no Starbucks on the holiday.
Both the Comic and I enjoyed the presents we gave each other. She was very thankful for all the help with Christmas especially being the first without her father. It was my first one without my Mom, but that barely registered for me. I talked to my brother and SIL on Christmas and the Comic could see what I always talk about with their machine gun questions that leave me with nothing to ask.
Eric and I have been talking better on the phone which I've enjoyed. He is changing and I'll have to change with him.
We had the third heaviest snow here in recorded history. It made for a white Christmas which is was nice. I wasn't happy about having to close the office for a day. You can easily tell who's from here and who is not. I was like let's go out while the Comic was like we're stuck inside. It's become a joke of me saying, "I'm from NY."
I have to admit the holiday really brought us closer together.
