Merry Christmas!

A day late, it's true. But better late than never, right?

This is the first Christmas since I graduated college that I am staying at my parents' house for more than a few days. I took the three days between Chirstmas and New Year's off of work, mostly just because I could. Provo is pretty empty, and my dad and I are already planning on eating Godfather's mushroom pizza while watching BYU's bowl game on Friday, so I figure there's no real rush for me to head back to my apartment. 

I've spent the last three days lounging, visiting family, opening presents, eating junk food, and blowing my weight in snot out of my nose. (I've been sick for two weeks now, and my nose is the last thing to clear up. It's super annoying.) I'm planning on spending the rest of the week sleeping, playing with my Kindle, watching movies, taking pictures with my new camera, eating a lot of candy, and maybe doing some shopping. Sounds like a good way to spend the holidays.

I may get a little bored, but I'm not too worried about it. I'm very much looking forward to the break from work. It will be nice to just relax and not worry about anything. Then I'll watch BYU take on Tulsa before heading home and wrangling up any stragglers in Provo who want to do something for New Year's. 

I've already had a great Christmas, and I'm sure New Year's will be fun too. Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you've all had a fantastic holiday so far.

A Problem

Whenever December rolls around and I wrap up my thankful posts, I always have the hardest time thinking of things to post about. It's like all my blogging energy gets used up in the frenzy of November and I have nothing left for the next month.

Then there's finals week, which generally kills my social life because most of my friends lock themselves away in the library and bury themselves in their books.

And then it's Christmas break, which leaves me mostly alone in Provo/Magna while everyone heads off to their various Christmas destinations.

I will try my hardest to think of things to post about this month, but I can't guarantee anything, and for that, I apologize in advance.
