The Tree

So…We put the tree up today. And decorated it. My aunt came over and helped. We had take-out Chinese food for dinner.  So, why don’t I feel like I accomplished anything today?

First, I overslept. Which may have had something to do with going to bed super late last night (or really early this morning, depending on how you look at it).  My aunt was supposed to come over at 1 and I didn’t wake up until nearly 2 and thankfully my aunt didn’t ACTUALLY come over until around 2:45 so I wasn’t totally embarrassed that I had overslept.

And it seemed like my aunt was just really uncomfortable all day. And I don’t know why. But it was sortve an awkward day.

So… I don’t know. I just feel like the day didn’t go well and I know that my mom and aunt usually put up the tree together so maybe the fact that I was here made my aunt feel like she SHOULDN’T be here and made things weird. Families are strange, y’all.

Anyhow, the tree is up and it’s a little weird because Mr.POSSLQ and I usually just have our little Charlie Brown tree and don’t really do a lot for Xmas and I don’t know…I just am not really feelin’ it.

My fortune cookie from dinner tonight says “Don’t Be Hasty, Prosperity Will Soon Knock On Your Door”

I miss Mr.POSSLQ. I miss my grumpy kitty. I miss my bed. I miss feeling like I belong. I miss home.  I can’t say I miss the noisy kids (I give Mom’s house one thing… no freakin’ lil monsters running around) or the stolen packages. But every place has it’s drawbacks and even with its flaws, I still miss home.
