I guess we'll be having an Imagination Christmas this year

My family is gone, my SO is gone, I'm home alone at Christmas for the first time ever.

There are no decorations, no tree, no Christmas lights, no presents, no carols, no Christmas dinner.  I'm just skipping Christmas this year, waiting for the clock to run out tonight so I can get it over with.  Maybe next year, when my SO returns, I'll have an old-fashioned Christmas.  ("Pagan?"    "No...")

I find myself a bit annoyed that all the stores are closed for the day.  I'm doing laundry, and ran out of fabric softener.  And I really don't want to go anywhere tomorrow.
