Discovered new music
-Discovered the band As Lions. They are really good and I am eagerly awaiting the release of their debut album, Selfish Age
Got all my shopping and wrapping for the holidays done before the 1st of Dec.
-I always make it a habit of having this done early
Found out my grandmother is going downhill fast
-She was recently diagnosed with dementia and anyone who has had any kind of encounter with this terrible condition knows it only leads down one road-Alzheimer's
-I haven't opened them yet
Go to my grandmother's
-We do this every year. Go to my grandmother's for Christmas Day. And every year it was crowded with her motley crue of a family, who only come over once a year. But since she is not doing so well, it's going to be just immediate family-me, my mom Brenda, my stepdad Greg, sister Jessica or "Jessie", for short, my aunt Jeananne, my aunt Carol, her husband Donnie and their two boys Michael and Nicholas, my aunt Jeananne's son Noah, who is living at home since he's working two jobs and going to the University of Cincinnati, but cannot afford the horrendous rent rates of apartments in Clifton, where the university is located, and my grandmother's dog Abby, who is a lovable but goofy Australian Shepherd-Collie mix.
-Since we're all off work the next day, we'll most likely shoot pool in the basement and listen to Christmas music
