I didn’t have a ride to church today.

Everyone I called to see if they could take me to church happened to be sick today, so I managed to live stream the service. For a while, I wasn’t able to log into this account to post to the blog, I had to use my phone to verify access, then change my password. I got 2 “your password has been changed” emails, so I think my account was compromised just before I went to use it. I managed to quickly change the password, (and hopefully it’s a secure enough one so that my account won’t be compromised.) Now I have to change my other passwords, but I’ll do that in the morning.

Answering a question.

When do you begin taking down your holiday decorations? What is the latest you’ve left them up? Usually I take the tree, (and all the other stuff,) down a couple days after NewYears. The latest I’ve left them up is probably until about a week after, but usually no later than that. My mom used to like to leave Christmas decorations up all year, (including the stockings, and pretty much everything else except for the tree.) As far as I know she doesn’t do that anymore, and I didn’t see a point in it when she used to do it. Via That’s my answer.

Yesterday went well!

I had a good Christmas with my family yesterday. I got a couple things I didn’t need, and most of the things on my list that I asked for, so that was cool. I’m still getting over my cold, I didn’t really sleep the night before Christmas eve, (because even though I took stuff, I was way too congested,) so I was pretty much out of it the next day. But I felt better on Christmas, and it was actually the first time in years that I haven’t had a headache on Christmas day. Dad and I brought all the stuff upstairs last night, around 5. Usually I don’t go home that early on Christmas, but I think he thought I did for some reason.) The good thing about leaving early was that mom and grandma were going to start cleaning the house, and I really didn’t want to be there for that.

Merry Christmas!

I’ll be leaving in a while to go to my parent’s house to stay the night, (as per tradition.) But I thought I’d wish everyone a Merry Christmas first! I haven’t been feeling well the past 2-3 days, and that explains the lack of posting. When you’re not all there, and can’t come up with something to write about, well it’s probably not worth posting at all. I hope this is just a cold, so hopefully it will go away in a day or two! Anyway, I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas! I should be back sometime tomorrow night, I’ll have access to the internet through my phone, but it’s a bit hard to blog post from that.

I think I’ll go to bed early for once.

Last night, I didn’t get to bed until like 12, and the night before, it was like 12:30. I thinkk I need to start going to bed earlier, because this is causing me to get up later, which I really don’t like! We did get snow yesterday, not sure how much we got here, but my parent’s had a couple inches at their house. It’s all melted now though, but mom said it’s supposed to snow again for Christmas. Snow for Christmas would be nice, but my parent’s literally live on a mountain, so it’s kind of hard to get everyone up there if that happens.

It’s supposed to snow here.

It was supposed to start today, and we’re supposed to have snow by tomorrow. My parent’s already have a little bit of snow at their house. My sister and I were supposed to go shopping again today, but now my niece is sick so we didn’t. We’re planning to go again on Friday, but that’s the last time I’ll probably be able to go before Christmas. If I don’t go before then, (or if my niece and my sister are still sick,) then what’s done will have to do for this year. I’m going to do most of my Christmas shopping online next year, (I only bought a couple things online this year,) the only thing I can’t do online are stocking stuffers, but that’s solved by one trip to the store, (not 2 or 3.)

My family went to church today.

By family, I mean mom, dad, and my half brother, his wife, and his 2 kids. They took they’re kids to Sunday school class, and since today was the day of their performance, they went up on stage with the others, (even though they hadn’t practiced.) They were just singing a couple Christmas songs, so it wasn’t that big of a deal. Unfortunately, our pastor was out of town this weekend, and even though the guy who filled in for him normally does a good job preaching, he was literally all over the place today. Since our pastor’s son, (who normally leads worship,) was also out of town, we had a different worship leader. After church, we all went to have Mexican food for lunch. After I got home, I got this weird blizard warning notification on my phone. Apparently, it isn’t supposed to snow here, but it’s supposed to like pretty much all around us.

The party went well today.

We did a lot of eating, and we sang a lot of Christmas songs. It was definitely a lot of fun! Unfortunately, my sister’s still not feeling well, so we didn’t go shopping this morning. We’ll probably be doing that on Monday after healing rooms, (again.) Although hopefully this time, we’ll have less of a time limit, because Christmas shopping in a hurry isn’t the most fun thing to do, especially if you’re like me and you really have no idea what to get anyone. Hopefully I’ll have all my shopping done after Monday

Plans for tomorrow.

My sister and I were supposed to go shopping tomorrow morning, before I go to the healing rooms Christmas party. My sister is sick though, so I’m not sure if we’re going to go, not only that, but this means I’m not sure when I’ll finish my shopping. She said she’d let me know how she’s feeling tomorrow, otherwise I just have the potluck to go to. We were going to have to hurry, because the potluck is at 1, which means I need to be back here around 12:30. We were going to start at 9 in the morning, so I could hopefully get my shopping all done, (I need another gift for mom, possibly another one for dad, and some stocking stuffers.)

Stuff from the past couple days.

I managed to tell my friend that she should probably go back to church on Monday night. She stopped going to church last summer, and ever since then she’s had a lot of things happen. Before I could explain that she could get lots of prayer and support at church, (and it would probably focus her a bit more,) she hung up on me. She called this morning, (before she came over, and I apollogised to her, so we aren’t fighting or anything. All that kept coming to my mind while I was on the phone with her that night, was that “she should probably go back to church.” It was 11 last night, and I was ready to go to bed, so I just decided to skip the post.
