It's Over!!

Just wanted to pop in and let you all know I survived.

I underplayed just how bad things were but I got through it and now I feel just a little dizzy from the relief. Crazy how a day that brings a lot of joy and can give me so much pain. Last night I finally went to bed at 2:30am only to cry for a bit and worry that I was going to throw up. For a half hour I did my breathing and positive self-talk until my body relaxed and let me fall into sleep.

The morning came too quick and more crying and panicking ensued. I thought I was organized but it just seemed that everything snowballed. Thank God for Bob who loves me even when I burst into tears for no apparent reason.

The day itself was great and Bobby bought me a new digital camera with an instruction manual that I'm counting as a 'read'. The rest of the day was fine also even though there was no time for a nap and I had to take two of my anxiety pills - no problem with dinner after that.

I guess I just got myself worked up the day before and early in the morning. Silly Cindy.

Lots of loot and stuff but I am going to go veg in front of the TV for an hour before going to bed. I get to sleep in tomorrow and then we can go over for left overs which is never stressful (she says hoping so evil being isn't thinking 'oh yeah?').

I only got one Chapters gift card this year and Cody chewed it up. He got that one along with one of Bob's Home Depot GCs. Ooops. There are three numbers missing from the code on the back - I'll take a picture of it and post it next time - so I'm hoping customer service can help me out!

So, what did you guys get and are you surviving or imbibing?

Cindy, relax! Enjoy more quiet times! Naughty Cody, didn't he get enough presents of his own?

Ours was pretty quiet. We had a good a Christmas, until we ended up having to take Kiddo to the emergency room. That was 4 hours. She's feeling better, but goes in for a CT Scan tomorrow.

Poor baby! I felt like you (only not quite as extreme) Christmas Eve. We had everyone over and I was so not prepared. Ugh. I hope you get to relax all day and just veg! That's the best medicine, I think.

I can't believe Cody chewed it up. I tried swiping my son's Borders card, but he wasn't having it. LOL

I got a new digital camera from MM, too. He totally surprised me with it. Isn't he sweet?

LinnieGayl - I'm starting to feel much better! And apparently Cody didn't think he had quite enough ;)

Dev - Oh my, I hope she is okay!

Holly - Yep, you were definitely busy having everyone at your house! MM is definitely a keeper ;)
