Christmas Eve

I realize that I should post my Picture a Day pictures from yesterday and today, but I have acquired another one of those headaches like I got last week in Whistler – abrupt and infinitely painful to the point that all I can do is lie down and close my eyes. Not fun. These are new headaches, unlike the ones I normally get (which are just fairly severe tension headaches.) I doubt it’s anything, really, although I’m starting to wonder if I’m allergic to babies or something, since I seem to get them after spending the day with my sister and her baby.

(I’m kidding. I don’t think I’m allergic to babies.)

I really, truly, sincerely wish that I could bring home a dog for Adam. At the moment, however, that is not a good option, since we already have two cats, our new apartment prefers to have no dogs, and we simply can’t afford one. But One can wish…

It’s Christmas Eve, but it feels like any other night – all the magic seems to be somewhere else. Maybe it’s the headache, or the lack of decorations around me, or the fact that I feel pretty bad about not being able to give people gifts, or the lack of snow. I just don’t know. Maybe I’ve just reached the point where I need to have kids to bring it back. I don’t really think like that’s true, but right now I just don’t feel it.

I’ll probably be going to bed soon, unless the Aleve really kicks in and knocks out this headache. I doubt it will, however – it hasn’t up until this point (neither has advil, tylenol, or aspirin.)

Ah well. I’m happy enough in my world. I love my husband, he loves me, we’re very good together, and we have two somewhat adoring cats who also love us in that cat sort of way. I think I’ll go watch the husband play some more Dragon Quest VIII.

Good night, and merry ho-ho.
