PAWS food bank and delivered Christmas stockings to their clients; celebrated my mom's birthday by driving down the coast to a Christmas tree farm that yielded no trees which meant we bought our trees at the usual Delancey Street lot in the city; decorated my tree, which included the always tedious task of stringing up about 600+ lights; and wrote the final paper for my class. I am completely beat. But it's all worth it because my apartment is awash with the smell of pine and the glow of candy colored lights.
Now all I have to do is some actual Christmas shopping; my requisite weekly blog posts for other sites; help my parents decorate their tree; write all my Christmas cards; and study for my final exam!
Is it Christmas yet?
