I'm told they don't call it that in the states... but rather the day after Christmas. For us, Boxing Day is the BIG sale day and also used to be a party day at my girlfriend's traditionally (back home). Today however, it's my going out with a bang or punch if you will... the last day of indulgences before I got back to program. Today is the 'adult' day as xmas eve and day is more for the kids - where for me it was the day where the adults got to have their 'hoorah' lol...
So my last day of drinks before going AF for the rest of the year.
I'm going to clean house starting tomorrow and get a jump on those projects, but today is my DOWN time day. I have my novels to read, and going to enjoy the coziness of having the xmas tree lights on (love the ambiance of those lights). My girlfriend bought me some to put up around the living room - which I may leave up all year - as I love the look (I know I'm a redneck - but at least they are plain white lights).
Come the new year when I have my income tax return, I'll be shopping for a new TV, couch and dining room set.. that will be my belated gift for 'us' ... and the 'instead' of a trip this year.
No news yet from my special friend - his contract is up in a couple of days so I'm hoping that then I will hear something... and if I don't, then I'm resolved to letting go and moving into 2012 without any holds or expectations. As I said - I did experience some blues yesterday - while I always have my girls - I still do miss the 'couple' stuff. I do know in 2012 - things will change some more so for today - going to make the most of what I do have, appreciate the good and enjoy the PRESENT!
