the holidays

It was a different kind of holiday experience this year. On Christmas Eve, my family came over to have dinner with me and Jake. Jake and I did the usual gift-opening thing Christmas morning, and then he went to Brian’s later that morning, where they opened gifts. In the afternoon, they went to Brian’s parents’ and I went to my parents’ for dinner. That was really it for Christmas.

On New Year’s Eve, my parents invited me to Asiago’s for dinner, then they stopped at the house for a bit afterward. I watched a movie after they left. Jake’s plans fell through so he watched the ball drop on tv with me and I went to bed shortly after. New Year’s Day was quite typical–we put the Christmas decorations away and had our traditional pork & sauerkraut dinner, which Brian joined us for. It’s nice that we can still do some things as a family.

I’m going to forgo a year in review post this year. Will 2020 be better? Let’s hope so.
