The holidays are now officially over WHEW! I am glad that they are. It was not that they were necessarily bad but, just busy.
I caught a cold but, consider it part of my detox. I recently started oil pulling again. I had tried it earlier but, just couldnt handle it. So decided to give it another try and even bought a book on it. It is “Oil Pulling Therapy” by Dr. Bruce Fife it is a short read only 7 chapters and roughly 190 pages or so.
My daughter got a TON of stuff mainly from my in laws. I am sort of ok with this. I did tell her that next year she would only be getting a few things from me. Mainly something she wants, something she needs, an experience gift for the whole family (seeing a movie, going to a museum etc. whatever she wants it to be) and of course $ for college. She is perfectly fine with this plan. I told her the grandparents can go crazy.
I got a few lovely gifts as well. My husband gave me a great sock book where you can flip and make your own. I also got some really soft and very warm sleep pants, some body scrubs, a lotion bar that has glitter in it (so fun), a Japanese plate with 2 white rabbits and a partial moon, gift cards to where we go grocery shopping (they did not last long), and another gift card from my in laws. My daughter gave me a very pretty ornament that we put on our tree. My mom paid for our windshield to be fixed on the car and I got a gift card for coffee from a coffee shop also from her.
Most of my gifts were very thoughtful, nice, needed, and most are not clutter.
My daughter got a Nintendo DS, a 2DS, Wii with a few games, Dolphin Tail and Dolphin Tail 2, How To Train Your Dragon 2, Clothes, A giant stuffed lizard and Hello Kitty, a smaller stuffed Hello Kitty, 4 books, a computer programming game for kids Turtle something, a tea set, nail polish, expansions for Zombie Dice, and I think that is it.
I hope everyones holiday was good and nice.
New Years we spent at the in laws. I was very happy it was the start to a new month and new year after December being so rough. I was also hung over as well the following day. Ah well.
