It's not bad enough that my all around mood turns horrible at the mere mention of a holiday, but the fact that people become 100% more stupido around holidays almost pushes me over the edge of sanity. Today I left work and drove straight to Krogers, thinking it would be easier to just do all my shopping today instead of waiting until tomorrow, since I hadn't even gotten a turkey or anything yet. So I go in, and the place was packed. People were pushing people, almost running people over with carts. I saw one lady grab a couple of things out of someone eles cart just so she didn't have to go find her own. How pathetic and selfish is that? So I finally got everything on my list and stood in line for 25 minutes because the lady in front of me was obviously buying enough food to feed the troops in iraq. Two carts packed full of stuff.
So I get back to the car, put everything inside and realize there is now a lovely little ding on my fender, from a run away cart no doubt. You can't even really see it unless you really look for it, but I know it's there, and that really pissed me off. So, all the way home I kept trying to chill out because I didn't want to get home with an attitude. When I pulled up Gary came outside to meet me and help carry in groceries. Michael came out and got some of the light stuff, and when everything was inside I threw the stuff that needed to go in the fridge and freezer in them, and then went and plopped down on the couch.
Gary had finished painting the dining room and kitchen, and had also put up all the Thanksgiving decorations we got at the mall last week. Michael picked out this 3 foot inflatable turkey, so it's sitting here in the middle of the living room floor where he left it, only 1/3 of the way inflated lol
I don't know, I just don't feel like my family is really a family anymore, and the holidays just aren't the same as they used to be. I don't get anything out of it anymore really. The only reason I do anything at Christmas at all is because of Michael. I mean I feel like I have a lot to be thankful for this year, but then again I feel like there is so much I could just do without. Mom, Tony and Jazzy are all coming here, along with Grammy, Grampy, Bryan and his 2 daughters, Chuck, Jenna and Colin, and then there will be of course, me, Gary and Michael. 14 people in my little dining room...that should be fun.
I am also going to walmart at 5 am on Friday and pick up some stuff that is really marked down. I plan on getting a dvd player and a new tv for Michael's room for him for Christmas. I also want to get him a remote control hummer that he saw that he really wants. He's real into trucks and cars and stuff so I want to get him a bunch of those..and of course some clothes. I have some other stuff I want to pick up for some other people too. So yeah, that should be fun...lol
Anyway, I'm gonna go. I'm starting to get a little tired of LJ...So if I'm not around much that's probably why....Talk to you guys soon... :)
