The usual hanging out with family, although there's been some family drama over the last few months, and some major things going on lately...

- We are not seeing my uncle and cousins from Chicago come into town this year for the holidays because my aunt (sister in law to my mother), said something along the lines of "not wanting to deal with our drama" (revolved around my sister and her son I think it sounded like). I have no idea where this came from, really disrespectful and pissed my mom off, rightfully so. I think she set her straight with a letter. We're closer to my uncle, but my aunt does seem to be controlling at times. I think he's coming into town this January for a job though so we'll see him sometime then probably.

- As some of you who have me on FB probably know by now, my sister had her kid on the 7th. So we've got a newborn around. I imagine there might be some "family time" involved with her boyfriends side of the family, which... I am not looking forward to at all. Hate to be ass about it, but yikes.

- My dad's mother, 65, was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in the liver. Very sad news, she's reacted well to chemo, but it sounds like she only has a year left or so. So she's definitely going to get all the time that we can give her these holidays. We usually give my mom's mother the priority, ever since my grandpa died a few years ago she just doesn't have a lot of family (her son is the uncle in Chicago), so it's just us. But yeah my dad's side is the priority this time.

My family is huge and I guess I kind of took it for granted until the last few years when I've been losing some grandparents.

Not to be a downer though, we'll make the most of it. Not sure if anything will be going on here at my apartment though, haha. We haven't even gotten a tree and I personally don't care to get one, but my roommate might which I'd be fine with... if he really does. Probably not. lol

Get one of the dinky little table trees, it works.

I really have no idea what our holiday plans are. I think I am working on Yule, as usual, so not much there. Oh... right... going to the local brewery for a Yule Log thing on the 19th (close enough for me) and I have the 24th and 25th off (thank you, Sam's Club) so we will probably do something.

We still haven't gotten a tree this year. Probably should work on that.

Several months back my boyfriend's dad asked if I would be going home for the holidays. Upon saying no, he immediately asked if I wanted to be with them for Christmas. It wasn't my boyfriend inviting me (though he did ask), but his -family- asking and inviting me. It nearly brought me to tears. So thankful for them.

As for having holidays off... It's weird out here. You get Christmas day and Boxing Day (the 26th) off, as they are public holidays, and then you get New Years day and the day after New Years off because they're also holidays. It'll be nice to have a lot of time off of work, but it's like, two days off, one day working, two days off, two days working, two days off, and repeat for the next week. So it's kind of a pain. Most places just have people off for the entire week between Christmas and New Years, but because I work in a call centre, I have to work all the non-public holidays.

But I'm hoping I don't get too lonely and homesick for those days. I'm grateful for my boyfriend's family. I don't think I'd still be in New Zealand without them.

Our Christmas tree is up. It's just not decorated. Should probably get those lights up.

We were going to head out to the high desert to see Brandon's dad, but that will probably have to wait 'til January.

Apparently we are not doing a tree this year because money is tight... don't know if she is putting up any other decorations. So far, we have a lone Christmas card on the mantle. There would be two, but I can't find the other one.

I just put out the yule log. It was super easy. Wrap gold and silver ribbons around it then put green and red ribbons at the edge finally put three feathers in to represent Eric, D'arcy, and myself.

Going to the brewery tonight for the Yule Log celebration. Next year I am going to try to do my own, but there are a lot of people that gather stuff for it all year long and I just find that daunting.

Also... despite the high number of birds around here, I have yet to see a feather drop. I find this very strange.

Looks like we'll be heading into the desert sooner than expected -- a couple days after Christmas -- although it all depends on when Brandon is able to get new tires.

I love how many people are freaking out about the day after tomorrow.

Mom's birthday is tomorrow and Heather is knitting her a scarf. She hopes to be done with it by midnight.

Again, I cannot wait to laugh on the 22nd.

If the world truly does end tomorrow, I go out gaming, like I should. *smug*

Oh shit. Christmas is in like...two days.

Edit: Realizing this, thirty seconds ago, is the first step of my holiday planning.

I did cards. Parents got a gift, few friends that got me a gift got a gift. Ben gets a gift (even though we said that the massive amount of money we spent on miniatures would be our collective gift)... and his mom gets a gift.

We've been trying to decide what we want to do for Christmas dinner and just had the idea of tamales... can't do them from scratch because we can't get the ingredients... so I plan to call the one local Mexican place that I heard of that does tamales and ask if it is possible to get some.
