so it happened. i managed to let an entire month (and a few days) slip past. i knew that time would come. i have spent the last month learning about marketing. and marketing has taken us on a whirlwind of adventure that has involved many packed bags, hotel rooms, airplane flights, and even a trolley ride.
and i want to tell you all about marketing and the other adventures i have been on in the last month. but a quick update on my christmas break. yes, i still get christmas break.
well, break may not be the right word.
i came home and quickly was put to work. it was four days until christmas and there was plenty to be done.
my dad put me to work first, on a much over do project. and to be fair, at least half the stuff to be moved was mine anyways. i guess that is what i get for storing my entire college house in my father’s storage unit.
success one: cleaned out the the last storage unit.
a five minute trip by home and a quick outfit change later, i was looking like a girl again to help my mom finish christmas shopping. we would have a couple extra guests for christmas this year and we wanted their stockings be filled some a few of their favorite things, which fortunately were not raindrops on roses or blue satin sashes.
success two: obtain stocking stuffers for all to-be present individuals.
number three is always my favorite. and my unspoken official task. and truly a necessity anytime the family is together.
success three: make a double batch of secret recipe, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookies.
much to my pup’s dismay, i had to take her to the veterinarian to have her updated on her shots. she was not too fond of it, but she handled it like a champ.
success four: update best friend’s vaccinations.
i even got all of my wrapping done.
success five: start and finish wrapping presents
in the end, i did not quite finish all i had intended to.
failure one: clean up the land mines covering my bedroom floor.
whoops. i had been doing so well. but family and friends took precedence. as they should.
my cousins were around for christmas.
my sister dressed us in onesies for christmas morning.
we ate delicious cinnamon rolls.
and i snuggled with my puppy.
all in all it was a wonderful, fifty-degree christmas in springfield, illinois. i would not trade it for anything.
