Oh, dears. It’s been 9 days since my last post. I’m a terrible blogger. Things have been so busy, but I’m in love with every moment of it.
First off, my mum came to visit last week to help take care of my sick aunt. My mum is such a beautiful person. She worked so hard to get things done to make it easier for not only my aunt, but also my grandparents who have been working incessantly to help my aunt with everything going on.
Secondly, Christmas shopping has been a blast of positively joyous moments and hair-pulling screamers. Money is tight, but it’s our (and my) first Christmas where we can buy loved ones gifts, so we’ve done our best with what we have. Isn’t that what my Carrie taught me? (:
I have my first Christmas tree, too. It’s a beautiful white one, with red and gold ornaments. T and I went shopping for presents and decided to surprise Chris (who was sick) with a little Christmas tree. We saved the best part just for him. (:
Everything has been so wonderful, stressful, and amazing. I’ve been helping out at a medical staffing agency by doing a working interview. So far, so wonderful. I really enjoy it, and the people I’ve been working with. I worked last Thursday and Friday, and they’ve asked me to come back for the whole of this week. My fingers are crossed and prayers are whispered that this is the one. It seems too perfect not to be.
Along with all this wondrous news: I believe the best moment of this week thus far is when Chris surprised me with coffee and lunch today. We haven’t had any money for anything extra lately, so when we had a few dollars extra, he treated me to a peppermint mocha from Starbucks. (: I love the little things. They mean the most.
