He wasn't drinking OR asleep; he was ignoring me for I forgot what reason...I was so POd last night and trying so hard to practice acceptance. He never did come over until 10am this morning, but it all worked out alright. I kept telling myself it would.
I read Sun Bread to ds last night. We did not make our own Sun Bread but I bought a french bread to stand in. We got up at 5 minutes to Sunrise this morning, and threw up bits of bread to the Sun when he rose, poured libations of peach/apple sparkling juice on the Earth, had some ourselves, then clambered onto my bed to open stockings. DS did an admirable job in his first year as Elf! I got some body wash, a ceramic angel, a ceramic thingy with a crow on it , a back scratcher, pink fuzzy gloves, a pack of eyeshadows, eyebrow pencil/eyeliner, red nail polish, a book light. He got chocolates, deodorant, travel toothbrush and paste, travel mouthwash (he said "Mom? Are you trying to tell me something?" ) a book light (different from mine), a tiny gingerbread house, other things.
Then M came over and he got me a beautiful....one of those all-in-one stereo thingies that look like old-timey radios. I've always wanted one-- but I feel like Gift of the Magi because I sold my entire record collection and now I have this record player and nothing to play on it At least it has CD and cassette and FM/AM.
I got M a blue hoodie, some long underwear, the Catholic Missal, an Episcopalian book of common prayer, a chocolate tool set, mini reese cups, a sock monkey.
DS got M a book of Emily Dickinson poems, a bookmark, and two crystals (smokey quartz and hematite). M got ds a $25 gift card to Game Stop.
I had stomach upset for a good portion of the day. I think it might be because I ate bread this morning. I haven't had bread in months and months. Got over it in time to go out to eat, though-- M brought me to the 99 and I had this awesome smothered chicken thingy. Ate every bit of it
All in all, a mostly sedate day
