So after work I fell asleep at around 4 am and then was woken up around 6. I don’t know why, but I was awake for a while. When I finally settled down and went back to sleep I was having some really weird dreams. I don’t remember them exactly, so I am not going to attempt to recall them just because of the fact that I don’t even have a way to explain them. I was woken up by the last one, and it was noon, so I decided to get up and start the day.
I got up and decided to open my presents. I should have lit my mistletoe, but it ended up being something that I didn’t think to do until after the fact. I got a neck massager from my mom and a vegetable chopper, salad spinner all in one thing from my youngest sister. The neck massager thingie was really nice, I can’t wait to get home and get it a going again.
I got to talk to Wendy (my youngest sister) and my grandma and dad today. They all liked their gifts. I can really tell my grandma is starting to lose it. She asked me how much time a year I have for vacation, and not more than five minutes later she asked me the same question again. I really need to try to make it back to Oklahoma before she dies or loses her brain function all together.
Today there was a marathon for American Chopper and Mythbusters and I was switching between the two in between calls, and before I knew it I had to get ready for work. Today has been really slow and I was playing Monopoly and Spades with the other leads and the sup that was here tonight. It is pretty nice to be paid double time and a half to do nothing.
I am really tired, I just want to go home and go to sleep gosh darned it. I am glad today is Friday.
While I was playing spades Mary called, and when one of the leads went home and we were done I called Mary back and talked to her for a while and she liked my gift and same with her daddy and she had a good Christmas too. I miss her. I miss her lots.
I have been trying to recall the places I was at whilst in DC and I am having some difficulties remembering where I was at when Mary and I went to the hardware store and then went to a couple of places after words, I remember I was looking for allergy medicine I think and we stopped at a couple of places, one place we had a sandwich or smoothies or something and it was a really small place and I remember my backpack being in the way or something. I think it was around the Dupont Circle or something. I am going to have to get out my DC box and look through it to see if I have any receipts. It is frustrating because the entire week was a whirlwind anyway, and I am lucky to remember any of it, time went by so fast and we did so much whilst I was there.
