When we woke up, we went to the gym, and got a little work out in, then I came home, and did some more laundry. We made a nice dinner, and had a few drank together. We had a great New Year’s Eve, but I was so hormonal.
On top of the fact, that New Year’s Eve, makes me uneasy already. It always has. In the blink of the moment, 2016 will be over, and it will be on to another year, whether we are ready for it or not. I hate not knowing what is around the corner, but I was ready for 2017..sort of?
In the morning, we woke up we opened gifts with each other, and then got ready to go to his parents’. We already knew each other’s gifts. I received a FitBit Alta from Drew. I gave Drew wireless headphones that are like mine, but they are black. We relaxed, until it was time to get Grandma. We had to pick Grandma up at 12pm, then go to Oakdale to his parent’s new house.
After we got there, my parents showed up, and it was so nice to have my parents there. We were finally all together on a holiday! Megan and I drank wine together all day. It was nice and relaxing. My mom helped clean up with Aunt Tootsie in the kitchen. I was glad everyone was there. It makes things so much easier, on Drew and I without having to travel back and forth on Christmas. We left around 8pm and took Grandma home. It is hard to get her in and out of the car. Once we got home, we relaxed for the rest of the evening. Another Christmas in the books.
My Christmas Eve traditions have changed over the years. We used to go to my Aunt and Uncle’s in Upper Saint Clair, up until my Aunt and my Grandma passed away. The traditions in the family have changed. So ever since our family traditions changed, we have been going to my parent’s friends’.
We went to my parent’s around 1pm, opened gifts then went to Christmas Eve mass. After church, we went home fed the dogs, and then got ready to go to Carol and Fred’s. It was nice, but I am ready to relive the magic of Christmas again. Christmas used to be so magical, when I was a child, and as I became adult it lost its magic in a way to me. I think as an adult, the magic is being with the one’s you love, until children come along, and then you create the magic for them. I am ready for a new Christmas tradition.
