post xmas wrap-up

I'm a little bit angry at myself. Jay's mom sent me a check for Christmas, and I blew it all on xmas clearance stuff. It wasn't much, but I had my eye on some cute knee-high boots, or at least some makeup or a tattoo. But I bought food and decorations instead. In my defense, we didn't have any xmas decorations, and we will eat the food, but I guess I wanted something more lasting. Or there are always bills to pay. It's a silly thing to regret, but I guess I wish I was more selfish in my spending.

I did get other things for xmas that I enjoy, don't get me wrong. Jay and I bought each other videogames, and he also got me a gift certificate to a fancy shmancy salon to get my hairz did. I got some clothes from his sister, and I know there are more gifts to come from people that are far away. These are all wonderful.

Oh, I also bought myself a coupla books recently. I had to kill some time after I got off work but before Jay did (with the car), so I went to B&N. We still haven't moved our books into this house and frankly I was going mad without them. I'd been looking at The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Other Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald and 3 collected novels by Jules Verne (20,000 Leagues under the Sea, Around the World in 80 Days, and Journey to the Center of the Earth)
for some time, so I finally broke down and bought them. In fact, I read the first Fitzgerald story while I was waiting for Jason that day, while I enjoyed a peppermint hot chocolate.

Anyway, hope you all had a good holiday!
