The Day After (Christmas)

Well, it was a great holiday! I drove to Texas to see my Dad and the rest of my family. It was a 15 hour drive. Everyone asked, “why didn’t you fly?” I never fly anywhere I can drive, no matter how long it will take. I have been on over 200 flights and I still don’t like it.

I arrived two days before Christmas. I started to go shopping for my nieces and nephews but I was too tired. I got them all gift cards instead. They were still very excited Christmas morning. Of, course I was not the only one buying gifts.

We all had a good time. And I haven’t even seen all of my family yet. Christmas was a great start. I have the rest of the week to see the rest. Also, I hope to see some friends this week as well.

It has been very good to be home. My nieces and nephews (actually my great nieces and nephews) are older now, and are not so freaked out by the stranger called “Uncle Tony.” So it has been a lot more fun. Of course, they are wearing me out.

I hope you all are having as great a holiday as I am. Merry Christmas!

PS, My son graduated from college last week!

Day 3 – Caint Get Right

I took a four hour nap at noon. Then I went to Walmart to get mouthwash and ended up spending a hundred dollars on the foods that I don’t need. I panicked because I was low on funds for the month. Of course I bought the foods that aren’t good for me.

So tonight I had a chicken Asian salad and a few glasses of wine. A little later I had a couple pieces of toast.

I guess I can still try and be faithful with the little bit of exercise I can do on my total gym. It’s ten o’clock and I am wide awake. My sleep schedule has been off since my last day of class. I end up staying up to late and then sleeping the day away. I cain’t get right.
