Why is it that as you get older holidays just get more and more stressful?
Christmas is FOUR days away. We celebrate on Christmas Eve.. so that’s only THREE!! Crap.
When I was little we used to spend holidays with my entire family. Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Siblings, Grandparents..
Then I started to see how crazy my family was & recently, within the past few years, we’ve disowned some of them.
Now, I just have my parents, my grandparents, my sister, my niece and Luke’s family.
I’m okay with that. Trust me. Dealing with the drama of my extended family ruins the holiday completely.
Sometimes if I think about it, it makes me a little upset. Only because I know I tried so hard. Not my loss.
Christmas Eve is always at my parent’s house. The family we didn’t disown comes over to eat & open presents.
Then Luke & I go to his house to exchange gifts with his parents and his sister.
Christmas Day I open up gifts in the morning at my parent’s house. Then go to Luke’s parents for an hour before he leaves all the Christmas celebration to go work all night. Normally then I just spend the rest of the night with my parents.
This Christmas (Now I’m singing that stupid “this Christmas” Christmas song.. I hate Christmas music) after Luke goes to work my parents decided we need to do something fun….
I haven’t been to Canada in almost a year. I dig Canada. They’re so nice when you’re trying to get in..
Then when I come back to America I feel like I’m a criminal. It’s insane.
Last time Luke and I went to Caesars was after a Red Wings game. We had a few beers at the bar..
Or at least I did since he'd rather drive than drink. See, we’re the perfect match. ANYWAYS..
We gambled and I won $40! I don’t gamble.. I don’t like losing money. So $40 was fab.
Then, we decided to try out the Martini bar..
Which was stupid. I still don’t know why he let me sit down.
I’m a craft beer drinker, so spending $20 on a 4 pack makes me assume it’s a beer I’ll enjoy.
I go to this martini bar and I order some $20 martini that tasted fabulous and I drank it in less than 3 minutes.
I believe I tried another one that was like $16ish or something.. same thing. 3 minutes tops and it was done.
Martinis are stupid.
So then I decided I want a Jagerbomb before we have to deal with getting back into America.
But, apparently they can’t legally mix Jager with Red Bull so I they tell me to buy two shots of Jager on the rocks and a can of sugar free red bull.. so I do which was just stupid. Then, I assumed that Lucas or someone would help me out and pour the red bull in the drink before handing it to me.. but, after a huge gulp.. I quickly discovered I was on my own with the mixing.
I’m excited to go on Christmas and not visit the Martini bar.
Hopefully I win big money!.. I’ve spent so much money on everyone and I still don’t feel I’ve bought enough.
I know that a lot of bloggers are going on some type of “Christmas Break” from blogging..
I slack enough that you may assume that was my plan.
I hope to blog almost daily. I guess we’ll just see…
What are your holiday plans? Do you have all your shopping done?!
BY THE WAY! I just want to let you all know that I do still have sponsor deals going on…
