Hope all of my American friends had a nice Thanksgiving! We had a very small dinner here with just my hubby, the kids and my mom. Nothing fancy, just a good meal and quality time together. It was nice having a long weekend off from work too. I really enjoy my job right now, but it has been a bit busy and stressful over the past couple of weeks. This was a good time to recharge the batteries, as it were.
Another cool thing about this weekend – I got my #TBTBSanta Secret Santa package! I was so excited! My Santa was Amanda (aka @dandagirl) and she put together the nicest package!
Again, thank you so much, Amanda! This was so generous and lovely, I couldn’t have asked for anything better!
Now I just need to get my #TBTBSanta gift finished up. It’s almost ready – I have one crochet project to finish up and then it’s a go. I did get my #Critmas package ready – it will be shipped tomorrow. I also got my cards ready for the #TBTBSanta Christmas Card Exchange. Those should hopefully go out tomorrow too (I need to buy stamps). I may have slightly overextended myself on the Secret Santas this year (this isn’t even counting the Christmas festivities at work) but I am in such a better place this year compared to last year. Last Christmas was one of the hardest times and lowest points of my life. Despite 2020 being a horrible year, I have made a lot of changes and can see my life finally starting to turn around. I have high hopes for 2021.
What is this strange feeling? Is it . . . optimism? I haven’t felt it in so long! I hope it sticks around!
