So the holiday sales rush from StoryBlox is finally over, I’ve still got a couple of orders to take care of, but I’m not in a huge rush.
I dropped a cutting board on my foot the day after Christmas, I think I broke my big toe. So, I’m sitting here bored out of my mind and figured I’d write a blog entry. I have work I should be doing, but all of it requires sitting up, and my foot is still swollen so I’m trying to keep it up as much as possible today.
Christmas was weird this year. I usually approach the holidays with a strange mixture of dread, fear, and excitement. Our family always fights a lot during the holidays, but Christmas is a very important holiday as a Christian. Plus there are a lot of children in our family, and it’s so great watching them get excited …
This year was a lot different for me, because I spent November and December working to try to get all of the holiday orders out. I did most of my shopping earlier in the year, and only had 2 days to get the rest of my shopping and my holiday chocolates made for the family.
I was so rushed and tired this year that I lost track of time and nearly forgot which day Christmas was. I didn’t have time to put up a tree or anything here. I didn’t even have time to get stressed out about dealing with family.
In the end, the day itself was just enjoyable, no one fought too much, and I was able to give individual presents to my nieces and nephews this year instead of just making them chocolate (I did that too). It was kinda cool, although it felt like something was missing. I think I kind of lost the true meaning of Christmas this year in all the rush. I think I might have to find a way to celebrate Christ’s birth on my own after things have settled down or something.
