Christmas Sucks

It is that time of year again and I am over it already. I hate racing around shopping to buy gifts for people just because it is December again. We are not religious anymore and hardly place any religious importance on Christmas at all. I much prefer to give people presents for no reason whatso ever when they aren’t expecting gifts. We have just done ‘the thing’ with Hubby’s family yesterday, and I wasn’t feeling too good (not enough sleep the night before, too much sugar the night before and for some unfathomable reason, they didn’t have their air con on!?!). I could have happily forgone the entire thing. And still I have Christmast with my family to look forward too – urgh.

Every year it seems the same thing, and I hate to say it stresses me out (not so bad this year, only one set of OutLaws to deal with the others have stayed safetly in North America thank God). So far I have been lucky – no cracked teeth. Every year around Chritmas and New Year, I inevitably crack one of my bottom teeth from clenching my jaw when I sleep. Has happened every year for about the last five years. So I can honestly say I hate christmas and if it weren’t for Angel who is starting to understand the Santa thing and gets really excited – I think I would cancel it altogether.

Hot Hot Hot

My air con is broken. And I know you’re all going to think I’m a spoilt little brat complaining when I say I am so not coping with the situation!..  My House has two easterly windows, and we are in the bottom of a hollow, so we dont get any breeze in this place at all.  And when I say ANY – I mean none what so ever – you can stand in front of the open window and get diddly.  Not to mention that whole – we’ve got air con now, so I guess we wont need those fans anymore thing!  :|…..

    I think I am going to write a country and western song about this…

Oh God, I’m bein’ fried
cos my air con went and died!
(repeat ad nauseum).

It is obvious that I am spoilt rotten as I am not coping with the heat at all. It could have something to do with my body temperature, I remember when the naturopath had me taking temperature measurements ever day for about 5 months, and they noted that I have a lower than normal body temperature – between 34 and 35 degress (when it should be between 36 to 37 degrees. Maybe that is why I feel like I am just cooking when it hits 36 degrees in here – its hotter than my body temperature and we have had humidity into the 80% and 90% which I am sure doesn’t help. I have had a headache for days and even though I am consuming heaps of water a day, I am feeling sooo sick. They better get it back on line for me quickly. I’m melting…..
