Christmas has arrived! I put the lights last weekend, interior decorations this weekend, and finished the outside lights and tree today!
I had a great Christmas! I got a waffle maker!!! Who wants to come have waffles sometime?? I also got a cat door to go in my basement door so I can move the litter box down there finally.
Buddy got a cover to go on the couch, and he’s been sleeping on it so much its ridiculous. He also discovered he can burrow under it and make a cozy nest. I also got a new ceiling fan to replace my wonky one in the living room. Its supposed to have 3 speeds, but I only got 1.
My brother got me an awesome new lamp for my desk, and the best blanket ever. A Queen Size Star Wars Fleece Blanket! I can actually wrap myself in it, its amazing.
My parents got me a framed piece of wallpaper from Mom’s old kitchen (Dad and I gave her a piece a few years back to go in the remodeled kitchen), and a shelf to put my radio on in the kitchen.
I’ve had an interesting Christmas.
It started out Christmas Eve at the Dentist with my loose crown. Turns out there’s nothing they can do, as its a cavity underneath the crown, and the whole tooth has to go. Worst part is all of my options involve lots of dollar signs.
I spent the night in Milo with the family and made out pretty good this morning. I got a shiny new printer, a new power drill, and bunch of random stuff. Buddy got a brand new cat tree identical to his old one. As you can see in the picture, he just loves it!
I got home tonight and spend what felt like forever setting up my new printer. I don’t know if its my ancient router, or HP printers, but someone didn’t want to cooperate and gave me tons of shit. I eventually deduced that for SOME reason, the printer does not want to work on my 5GHz wifi. I put it on the 2.4GHz and it seems to be working. After all its put me through, if it acts up one more time I’m done and we’ll be digging out a trusty old USB cable.
In other news, I did my monthly web updates and somehow broke my genealogy website entirely. I’m in mood to deal with it tonight though.
Today was very relaxed. Buddy and I slept till almost 11am! I guess I needed it.
I spent the afternoon super cleaning my bathroom, as it had been awhile since it got a full cleaning. It’s nearly spotless now.
I then wrapped Christmas presents for tomorrow, as I’m having Christmas with my brother and his family.
I then finally got motivated to hang my cuckoo clock! I ran into a bit of a problem though, as the bellows aren’t working in either of the clocks I have 😔
I tinkered with them a little, but I got pretty nervous as they’re antiques. They belonged to my great grandmother, and they were literally made in Germany.
I’m gonna see if Dad can help me fix it, as I know he has some experience tinkering with them. Mom & Dad have an American cuckoo they got as a wedding gift. My grandmother even had one!
Cuckoo Clocks seem to be a tradition in the Barden family.
Since I forgot earlier this month, here are some pics of my Christmas Tree and decorations 🌲🎁
