Christmas is stressing me out. At least once a day, a family member asks me what another family member might like for Christmas.
Mom: "What about Alyson? Do you know what Alyson might like?"
Me: "Mom... I don't have Alyson for Christmas this year. I didn't ask her."
Mom: "Yes, but she's your sister. You must know something!"
Me: "Yes, but you're her MOTHER. Figure it out."
Mom: "You're no help."
This will go on for the next week and a half. (Whoa... that's not much time...)
Me: "Speaking of Aly, do you know what she's getting me for Christmas?"
Me: "Will I love it?"
Me: "Give me a hint?"
Alyson called me once Christmas 2009 was over.
Aly: "I have the best Christmas present for you!"
Me: "But it's JANUARY!"
I must confess. I am not a patient person. I am the girl who sneaks up on Christmas Eve to see the stash left by Santa. I am the girl who peaks in drawers and in the closet. I am the girl who carefully peels back the tape on a present to find out what it is three days early. So waiting an entire year to find out what I'm getting for Christmas has been torture.
But I am determined to be a good girl this year. I will do my best (though I'll probably torment quite a few people about hints) and not ruin the surprise.
It helps that I know what my parents have gotten me. My sister and I went shopping on Black Friday and I bought the present from my parents: Seasons 2 and 3 of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Season 2 of Chuck.
I was excited knowing that that was all I was getting.
Yesterday my parents kidnapped me. They made me get dressed, threw me (or had me peacefully get) in the car and started driving. They bought me a brand new phone. I've had the same ghetto phone since I was 18. I'm very used to it, but it's ugly and boring.
My new phone has a touch screen and I spent hours yesterday figuring out all of the features. It's so pretty. I'm gushing. *Sigh*
There is a downside to this however. Yesterday I told myself that I would finish a LARGE part of my parent's and sister's present. But the phone distracted me and now I have to do it today. Not such a big deal. I'm just ready for it to be finished. I've been working on it since October. It's taking a while.
In other news, the weekend was filled with too much good food and I now have 6 pounds to lose in 11 days. Do you think I can do it?
