It's the most wonderful time of the year.

Have I ever told you how much I LOVE Christmas? It's my absolute favorite. I love decorating the house and setting up the tree and my favorite favorite FAVORITE part is when you get out all the boxes from the attic and you open the ornaments one by one. It's like a little surprise in every cardboard box. It's so fun to think back to all the Christmases in the past and I get so happy. One thing I love is when it's dark in the living room and the only light is the tree and maybe the fireplace. I also like to lie down with my head under the tree and look up through the lights and the branches. It's like the prettiest thing in the world. I almost wish I could get a job here for the holidays and stay for Christmas. I missed it last year. I got screwed out of Christmas last year. I was in a strange country, in a strange situation, and it was hot outside. I was in Australia. Although the people I worked for included me in Christmas Dinner it just wasn't the same.

Maybe I will start looking for seasonal work. I can wrap a gift like nobody's business.

p.s. Dad gets his results from the scan he had last week tomorrow. They will tell him if he still has any cancer left. I hope it's gone.
