Made it back to my apartment today...feel like I can relax a bit. I relax at my parents but it's a different type of relaxed....while I'm there I'm under their roof and their rules...which is generally okay but after a few days we tend to start butting heads. Back at the apartment, right now, it's just me. My roommate is still away for a couple days....so I have my own space to enjoy freely. I like being around family and friends but I love having my alone time in my own space too. I value it. Wasn't able to bring back all my stuff to the apartment though...and my parents wanted me to leave most of my gifts so they can show their visitors what I got. Afterall it's tradition to show off every item under the tree. I picked out a few things to bring home and had enough other stuff to bring back anyway since I did laundry while there. I'll get the rest in the New Year. Speaking of New Year I don't really know yet what I'm doing for New Years. I can't decide if it would be more fun to go out or to stay home. I think I will pick up a bottle of wine or champagne though and check out some of the sales at the mall tomorrow for my last splurge of December before going on the no credit card "diet" again. Will probably keep that so called diet going until near my birthday where I may give myself a week or two. Other then that it's only what ever is absolutely necessary and with any luck nothing will be that necessary. I'm thinking of taking my eyebrow piercing out soon. It hasn't really fully healed and is driving me nuts more often then not. I don't think it's infected but I know my body is try to reject it...I'm tired of having to be so careful about cleaning it and if I overdo it then it irritates it and if I don't enough it irritates it and it's just being a royal pain. I'm just worried then when I take it out that the holes will close over before all the fluid is out and it will swell and look hideous. I think what I'll do though is once I take it out I will super clean the barbell and for at least a few days put the barbell in polysporin and stick it through the piercing hole to make sure if there is any gunk in there it gets cleaned out and heals better....or I may go up the road and talk to the person who pierced it. If it wasn't on my face (eyebrow) I wouldn't be so worried...but that's kind of a highly visable area....even though most people don't notice the piercing...lol. Anyway...my tummy has been upset tonight and since it cleared out pretty well I'm actually quite hungry and am hoping this time the food will stay in my body, at least for a normal amount of time. I know, too much info.
