I last minute decided to stay in town for Christmas, and – surprise! – I am relishing it. Aside from one short night of crying because I miss my family, I have been blissfully and simultaneously detoxing and recharging. Friends are ‘checking in on me’ to see if I have Christmas plans (I don’t), and I am happily telling everyone that I have a busy day full of invitations 😂🏆. Am I the scrooge? Does this make me a bad person? I’ll probably just find something to volunteer at. I am happy to be on my own.
In other news, when I realized I wouldn’t be going home for Christmas, I wrongly assumed that I wouldn’t have any presents, and purchased an electric toothbrush for myself. In what feels like a first-world problems re-telling of the Gift of the Magi, right after I brushed my teeth with it I received a package from my family which included a second electric toothbrush. (As an aside, my electric toothbrush is amazing and one of the settings has a fast, loud beat that makes me feel like I’m in an action movie.)
Lastly, I received a significant cashier’s check in the mail recently, which does not seem to be a scam. If you sent it, thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
Hope you are feeling free and joyful this Christmas.
