Oh the irony

Day 4 of food poisoning / stomach flu and I’ve decided to bring my own rice to the New Years Eve party I’m going to tonight in order to have something I can (maybe) keep down.

On the plus side: starting the new year 10 pounds lighter than I was 4 days ago…. Win???

When people make or buy sweets specifically for Emma and I’m not ready for my 18-month old to be eating all that sugar… The polite and least wasteful thing to do is eat it all myself right?

Can I get a “What What!!!”

This time three days ago I had not bought a single Christmas present. This time 1 week and 3 days ago I hadn’t even ordered my Christmas cards yet.

Today I mailed 60+ hand-addressed cards (must look into printing shipping labels next year) along with a box to my sister and a box to my goddaughter, handed out awesome presents (if I do say so myself) to my team at work and have the majority of presents for my Hawaii family wrapped under the tree (including a monstrously huge present for my spoiled daughter that I built myself).

Oh my god, I am tired! Note to self: do NOT procrastinate next year.

Maybe I’ll start Christmas 2016 shopping in January.

Also…. I have an irrational fear for anything with more than 2 eyes.

Awesomeness = bumping into your bro-in-law at work (our company’s HQs share the same office building) and getting some of the presents he brought in for his coworkers. Thanks bro!
