I came home tonight in a great snow. Big, gigantor-flaked snow that makes you giddy and disoriented to walk through, I love it!
Anyway, I was finishing wrapping a few pieces of glass and putting them under the tree, when I noticed a rather large box with my name on it! This has me totally baffled, I have *no* idea what it could be. I didn't even really ask for anything this year, I was so busy this term that I couldn't think of anything I wanted...anything I *needed* even, just gift certificates when i was pressed to come up with something.
(I like gift certificates, because if I get money as a gift, it goes straight to the bank. It's a result of habit, and having too many options to buy something and not being able to settle. I suppose, in the long run, it's a good thing, hehe).
So this Christmas I am experiencing some of the excited curiosity that I held when I was younger. It's great, just the sensation. I mean, it could end up being a sweater in a big box, but I would still be greatful that it inspired such childlike giddiness in me for this next day, it's a feeling a really miss around the Christmas season.
Family celebrations start tonight, have a Merry Christmas everyone!
