I spent a good half hour belting out Christmas carols at the top of my lungs while I made a gift for Ladybug and Bee.  And I'm tall, so the top of my lungs means it was really loud LOL!!!

I okayed a few little purchases to make some of the Inside crowd happy. 

 

And even though the furnace is working fine now, I moved the space heater back in here.  Toasty!

Today I forced my body to rest, even though I wanted to be moving.  But I knew how low my energy reserves were, and T tomorrow is gonna demand a lot.  So I stayed as still as possible, did my best to let my body recuperate from the demands I've put on it lately.

I made my Trouble Twins happy by eating a (small) bag of gummi dinosaurs.  Happy Twins, happy Copper.

 

And I kept it light in art T...drawing a silly picture of Furball all tangled up in her yarn-ball.

I went for dinner with my best friend and got to snuggle with her son, who soothes my soul.

Today I sat around and did a whole lot of nothing.  It felt kinda good!

For the first time in a couple days, I have something for in here.

 

While wrapping gifts at work, I took the scraps too small to use for anything and made them into origami paper. For paper cranes.

 

It's a start....maybe after Christmas is over, I'll do something "for myself" that lasts longer than 15 minutes at work.

 

Edit: oh yeah, and those 15 minutes at work were the only work-breaks I've had since Tuesday, and I work a 9-hour day.

Today I ignored all rules of nutrition and healthy eating and stuffed myself silly on junk.

 

I am sure that my guts will make me regret this choice...but I enjoyed every bite!!!

Instead of cleaning my apartment, cooking, etc...I went around to thrift stores on my way home from work. I spend $10 mostly on stuff I just liked, and fantasized about what if I could just walk into a thrift store and buy things that I liked without stressing the price tag. I'm not usually all about the consumer cure, I'm usually pretty strict about buying only what I need and buying used/recycling whenever possible. But it was kind of a nice thing, anyway, to relax.
