Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
*Warning Picture Heavy Post*
It's Almost Christmas and I still feel rather like the "Grinch". I'm not proud of it, but it's a fact. Shopping was a disaster this year. I bought a truck load of stuff for me before Black Friday and it all arrived super fast and was awesome...Stuff I bought for other people is still missing. Packages are late at best, lost at worst. So that means I had to go and BUY yet MORE to replace what was missing and also be creative, just on the off hand chance the pervious orders do show up.
I actually cannot remember the last time I was this unorganized. But oh, yeah...I didn't live in 2 different countries at the same time either. So thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
So behold random Christmas time glitter and tinsel ~
My mothers Christmas tree. It's rather special because it is the culmination of everyones childhood crafted ornaments all together in one place. I usually put up 4-5 trees at my house. One very much like this - with crafted childhood ornaments, plus one color coordinated, one themed tree, and one mini tree in Nola colors (Gold, Green and Purple!) and one tasteful tree. This year I did nothing. #FAIL
No Christmas trees, no decorations, no baking (Ms Raw Vegan eats what she doesn't bake so no treats for anyone) and mostly missing gifts.
Yes, this year sucks ass. :(
I am constantly amazed at the random Texas junk at the markets. Most people do not decorate "Texas Western" but a few people do. I shutter to think what Buc-ee's has in stock. #OvertheTOP I'm sure! I'd go just to take pictures, but its almost Christmas and I'm sure its a total mad house of people buying last minute Deer Feeders and BBQ pits. (Oddest gas station in the world!)
Speaking of odd..
A popular gift here for Christmas is a succulent plant know as 'Christmas Cactus'. It's very pretty and easy to grow.
I'm so busy with work that I haven't been posting much. I do apologize - I hope to do better.
Also I'm attempting a "year end" post with a travel time line, but its just depressing me. I'm ready to go again you see, but still do not have major problems resolved so here I sit. And there is work. I feel like all I'm doing now a days is work, work and more work. #2Stressed
So now I'm walking, doing daily Yoga and meditating in an attempt to (not blog) relax more. Don't I sound calmer? lol
I hope you have a good one and a happy New Year!
See you at the airport-
