Mama had some scary chest pains, it was just acid reflux, thank God. However, I’ve decided that this is the first last Christmas I can spend without family. It’s not that I had a bad time, or was depressed or anything, but I realized that the number of Christmases we have together are numbered.
My money finally made it back to the US. Checks are in the mail.
I ordered new jugs of water. I ask C to call them and have them deliver the prepaid jugs on the morning of Christmas Day. I waited until 12:30pm and then left the house. When I came back home around 11:00, there were two water jugs waiting outside my door. So at least I have water, and they didn’t take any tickets. However, 1) I wasted all morning waiting for them, 2) I didn’t get to show them the broken dispenser. Sigh.
My fridge is making a lot of noise now, which is silly since it’s a) mostly empty, and b) cold in that room (I only heat the living room on weekeends).
Some things I’d like to buy myself:
A plasma TV and DVD player. Everybody’s got one here. I’m paying for a living room, I need a reason to use it. I have two TVs now (belong to landlord) and I don’t watch them because the government station is wretched. I watch dvds on my laptop, which is great, but I’m not in college anymore, right?
A digital piano.
Some corduroy jackets, maybe black and dark brown. Fitted, of course.
