6:38 a.m. Updated yesterday's entry with pictures. I'm another day closer to Heaven and one day closer, God Willing, to going home.
6:48 a.m. Asleep on Christmas morning. Last night she was confused. She asked if Santa was coming and bringing more presents or something because she saw her presents already under the tree. Her Mom is wrapping a few extra ones this morning so I think she has an answer. God Bless, Jesus Birth, Loves, Lives, Saved! Now Happy Christmas to all!
7:12 a.m. Mema got me an awesome 'Christmas Sweater' and I'm rocking it this morning.
7:25 a.m. I changed from my pajamas to jeans and I've been sorting through my clothes. I want to wear my
The sun has already risen and it will be a cool, and from what I hear, a rainy day. All Glory, Praise, Thanks, and all things be to God on the Highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God is able! God Bless, Jesus Born and Died, Rose and Saved! He does above all we ask or think.
I already texted Dad to ask if he was coming and let him know I got a gift and food for him when, and if,
7:42 p.m. I got socks and mittens on earlier, bundled up, and took Stock shots of nature..morning winter nature...and a couple selfies. Aaliyah woke up, wanting to open gifts but we don't do that until everyone is awake around here.
7:44 a.m. ANNNDDD...She's asleep again. lol.
8:00 a.m. Wrote a couple new poems. Happy.
An old online friend who I fell out with, who I knew for years and lost touch with, though not for a lack of
trying, deleted me from
I have thirty so far. I told myself I'd only let there be a poetry book at a minimum of fifty poems and I have tax return money coming in the coming months. I hope to remember Sierra Leone, an impoverished nation, at that time. AND I want to buy my journal if its ready at that time, and the poetry book, if its ready at that time. Tats all I know.
I hear Grandpa...kinda sounds like he's talking to somebody so maybe people are waking up. I'm kinda like a big kid so I'm ever excited for today. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves!
|Awesome gifts from an awesome family.|
8:34 a.m. Been watching the Chrisley's and Mom, Joe, Grandpa, and Jen are chatty.
8:41 a.m. Aaliyah is awake but like half the household is still sleeping, lol.
9:01 a.m. Meandered mostly but I got to teach Aaliyah how to do a crossword puzzle, just in the similar way I learned when I was her age. She needed a little extra help though with the big words.
10:40 a.m. We got presents out of the way and then everyone departed to their places. I got bath and makeup gifts which was really awesome. Aaliyah LOVES the Lamilly doll which made my heart smile. Hope to post more pictures later, I took quite a bit, but not right now.
10:59 a.m. Arranged for a ride home tomorrow from Grandpa. :D HOME! It's like a fourth Christmas. The one before I left, Christmas Eve, today, and tomorrow.
11:20 a.m. I have cramps and starting to feel the effects of waking up too early.
11:45 a.m. Had a nap and I just went through my Christmas photos...of which I'm very happy with. :) Normal.
12:26 p.m. Meandered..mostly. Just cleaned up and I'm getting my laundry done, too.
12:55 p.m. Dad sends apologies for not coming. Still a happy time.Talking to mema now.
1:14 p.m. I gotta say the Maybelline FIT Foundation was a PERFECT shade, as advertised, but I've yet to try the Maybelline Age Rewind The Lifter firmer and foundation. I'm only 26 but I heard its good stuff. I have to learn to use it properly. I got plenty of eyeliner, too and some eye shadow. I'm not putting makeup on my face today, by the way. I didn't bring my Dollar Store makeup remover lol.
About earlier, I don't mind that Dad is not arriving. He said he'll try to see me, and pick up his gift, on the 31st. He has to cook and see people and by the time that's done, it'll be too late because he has to work.
I'm looking forward to Christmas dinner, by the way.
1:31 p.m. Age rewind is just a tad too dark for me...maybe it's what April was looking for.
1:36 p.m. Trying to Skype her and see if it's something she was looking for. If not, I'll try it out for real..another time..when I have ALL my makeup including my favorite mascara..I have all the eye stuff except a mascara lol.
1:55 p.m. Clarrissa came by and loved her gifts! I'm SO HAPPY! :D
2:03 p.m. Still handling my laundry.
2:43 p.m. I WAS napping, and laundry got handled, then Mom and Joe started fighting and someone is blaring car music outside...horrible music. So I put headphones on...which I don't plan on sleeping with. Oi.
2:47 p.m. At least things quieted down now. -_-
3:04 p.m. Just tried Maybelline Age Rewind The Lifter firmer and foundation on my face and I have to say, the tone makes my face a bit paler than my original complexion and it makes my eyes water. Would recommend if it were my exact shade (Here I thought it was too dark after a wrist test, now it may be too light) but may not due to slight eye irritation...though tolerable. No less thankful to Jen for it, though. :D
I will say this: It makes my skin feeler smoother than a baby. lol.
3:14 p.m. Wrote some reviews. lol.Mom and Joe left, feeling better.
4:03 p.m I had a nap and I've been helping out with Christmas dinner.
4:06 p.m. Checked my email. But do I really need to know in the future that I checked my email just now, lol? Is there a relevance to that?
4:19 p.m. Going with Mom to see Jack and Joan for the first time in over a year. WOW!
4:46 p.m. We just got home from a pleasant time of catching up with Joan. Got coke, a Kit Kat, and Elvis hot chocolate, lol. Totally unexpected.
4:56 p.m. I like to take very brief intervals of naps like I just did right now...many intervals. Like a power nap but all spread out, ya know? God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! Edited this entry a little because I have a habit of putting p.m. sometimes when the time is actually still the morning, lol.
5:07 p.m. I read half of Chapter Eighteen, which still needs editing after all because I got bored pretty quick and then pace is too jumpy.
5:39 p.m. More meandering and another quick nap behind me.
6:30 p.m. More napping and meandering, then I had a quiet dinner. A few guests have not yet arrived but we're eating up anyway. ;) Me? I'm brushing my teeth.
6:36 p.m. Turning off here. More tomorrow. Bye. End of Updates.
