Home Again

DaGoddess @ 01:11

I’m back home and feeling somewhat relieved.

I had a great time in San Diego, but it was exhausting.

Christmas was nice, save for the moment my sister and mom got into it and my mom left the house in tears. I quietly gathered all the gifts we’d received, said my good-byes, and followed Mom out to her car. I tried to stay out of it as best I could. I should never have suggested we stop talking politics. That would have been far more pleasant than what came after. Lesson learned.

The next day, I dropped Little Dude off at his dad’s. It was difficult. I didn’t want to say goodbye, but it went quickly as I had Mojo waiting for me and LD had to get ready for a party. Went to pick up Mojo and off we went to the mall. I had to return a blouse she’d given me as it was too big. We tried the next size down and it was just about too small. Nothing in between. So, I found a couple other blouses and sweaters and all was good. She had to run off to work (she’s been at this job for about a week and a half now) and I continued with some shopping. Why not? I was already there, right? Plus I had a gift card that could only be used at the malls in SD. Anyhow, when I got done shopping, I sneaked a peek at MJ at work. She’s really enjoying her job, she’s good at it, and they decided to keep her on after the holidays. I’m very proud of her. I even got to take her to the bank to deposit her first paycheck.

And now I’m home. Gotta say, it was kind of nice to watch the plane approach Vegas and feel like the city was welcoming me back. It feels like home, really and truly.

I’ll miss the family, but I’m glad I’m back in my element. Travel is done for a bit. I can get down to business. Watch some PBS. Chill.

At least for a few hours.

Hope everyone had a good Christmas. We’ll compare presents later, m’kay?


  1. Sorry to hear of the family drama that took place, but glad you otherwise had a good time.

    The only present of mine that mattered? Getting home. And Christmas was quiet, uneventful, and laid back. Everything I hoped for, and then some. Told my wife I wanted to hitch the whole house to a truck and bring it back with me.

  2. So glad you had a good Christmas, aside from the family drama. Seeing the kids had to be the best gift, eh?

  3. Me gots a Garmin (family tired of me getting lost on my way to the grocery store) and books. Lots of good ready for at least the next 2 or 3 months.

    Happy things went well for you – now go forth and conquer Vegas baby.

  5. I didn’t even go anywhere and I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things. :biggrin: Glad you had a good time though! May it be a very Happy New Year for you!

  6. Ah, but it wouldn’t be Christmas without the family drama. Just got back from 8 days in Texas, and escaped relatively unscathed.

    Good to see that Vegas is “home”, that photos are appearing, and that a laughing rhino icon is showing up again. All in all, life is good, no?
