Christmas Eve

I woke up around 5 but I was able to go back to sleep. I think the Lyrica is helping more with the RSD because now I'd say I'm sleeping well 50% or more of the nights. Before, it was maybe 25-50%. Not sure about all this.
Anyway, we had to go get my prescription from the pharmacy down by college, so Mom and I had Brewberries for breakfast. Then, we went, got the prescription and cleared up some of the confusion around that. Then we went to the mall, picked up some gifts as well as some stuff I can use on my face. It's natural fragrence and it's lavender scented. I'm finding lavender is a good thing. It seems to help keep me calm and slightly more comfortable. On that front, I'll have a couple product reviews in the coming days.
We grabbed smoothies from Orange Julious. They're called peaches and cream on the menu. They're bananas, peaches and non-fat frozen yogurt. They were excellent.
Oh, I forgot. We went shopping for the 'boys. Julio helped pick out his present (shhh, don't tell him that!). After the mall, though, we went to the grocery store and picked stuff up.
Now we're home. It's three o'clock, but it sure doesn't feel like it!
I'm a very happy puppybraille!
Christmas is feeling real to me this year. I wrote some private stuff about it, but it's so real and awe-inspiring!
