I've baked, mailed Christmas cards (Old School) and shipped out packages. Long story short, looks like I'll be spending Christmas solo. I opted not to fly home to Buffalo because of insanely overpriced airfare and wasn't sure I could take extended time off on the front end - since parents then visit my brother after. I'm not anti-family, I have plans to fly up in January.
I've received an invite from a co-worker (much appreciated) but Christmas is really about family time. Haven't heard from Florida relatives so debating between utilizing my Disney annual pass or just staying home catching up on writing and getting organized for 2010.
Not sure if I'll be posting before Christmas but enjoy this story about "The Worst Christmas Gift I Ever Received," which I wrote in 2007.
