Hope you all had or are having a lovely holiday. Mine was mostly painless, which is awesome.
God, I always feel so relieved to be back to my life, even if I was only away for barely more than 24 hours. Of course, with the lovely Christmas Day snow we're having, it took me two-and-a-half hours to get home (twice the normal trip). I did have to drop my sister off and pee, but that took all of five minutes.
I made it through Christmas Eve Mass and everything yesterday. I think I really impressed my mom in the kitchen. Finally! I made a horseradish, herb, garlic and salt crust for the prime rib and fuck me, y'all -- it was delicious. And my mom looooooved the cheesy potatoes I'd made for Friday night that we had leftover.
I even managed to sleep well in the tiny twin bed that has become mine when I go home. Granted, I was aided by a lack of sleep on Sunday night, a bottle of wine and a couple of Percoset. But hey -- a good night's sleep is a a good night's sleep.
Everything is unpacked. Well, my clothes and make up, anyway. My glass must be chilled by now. Guess it's martini time. Yay for working at home tomorrow! Boo for working, but I can do it in my jammies. I'll live.
