Happy Holliedays... again...

Happy Holliedays!! I'm sure I've titled posts that before but, man how I love having such a festive name.
(Here, we also celebrate Hollieween as well.)
So, it's Christmas Eve and I'm ready to tackle tomorrow like a roid-raged quarterback.
The house is clean. The presents have long since been bought and wrapped and I even have our Christmas outfits picked out for tomorrow.
I. Am. Ready.
Eh, yesterday for errand running I wore a dress I haven't worn since I was pregnant with River. I've been too afraid to even try it on for fear my ever growing bosom would bust the fabric, but luckily there was a little stretch left and my new thrifted sweater provided decent coverage.
 There's really not anything left for me to do today to further prepare for tomorrow so I've decided to start knitting a scarf. As you can see I'm really not the best knitter. I taught myself how to knit out of sheer curiosity a few years ago and never tried to perfect the skill. It's not even a hobby. I just like having something to do with my hands and now is the perfect time to start on a new project .
Ok really: If I'm knitting... that means I'm bored.
So, I'm going to give myself a late Christmas present probably next month. A new tattoo! I've saved up my change and I've picked out my design. Tattoos around here aren't very expensive. I can probably have this done by a good artist for about $50.
The bigger piece will go on my right forearm and the smaller piece will go a little ways below it on my wrist.
