Since arriving home on Wednesday, I've attempted to watch The Holiday twice already, passing out within 30 minutes of the first scene each time. But here I am, on the Christmas Eve morning/early afternoon attempting to watch it again, from the last spot I last remember before drifting off last night.

I wasn't going to write about my volunteer experience last night, but finding myself with anxiety and exhaustion today I think it's for the best.
