It’s also accurate for the following statements: “I’m just too full for dessert” & “I couldn’t find anything I wanted at Target”.
Day 10: I literally sat in my chair in my pajamas, drank tea, enjoyed the fireplace, listened to Christmas music, online shopped and read from 1:00 in the afternoon to 7 in the evening. And I don’t even feel bad about it.
Day 11: I had a complete and utter meltdown yesterday. I was putting the last few items on the tree and found my younger daughters “baby’s 1st Christmas” ornament. I put it on the tree and finished up with the rest. About 10 minutes later, I’m cleaning upstairs and it just hit me. She will be graduating in a few months. Then her sister gets married. All of the sudden I realized that my house was about get very quiet, very soon. I started crying. I cried a lot. I’m talking snot dripping, ugly cry. For like an hour. My poor husband. Don’t get me wrong, I am SO excited for what’s ahead for them both but I am going to miss seeing them everyday.
Day 12: If there was a Trader Joe’s closer to where I live, my pantry would be full of Cookie Butter, Speculoos cookies and dark chocolate covered blueberries. Nothing else. Ok, maybe some pretzels to dip in the Cookie Butter.
Day 13: I don’t like any movie or tv show with a sad ending or that doesn’t provide closure. I want everyone to be happy, get what they’ve always dreamed of and go home with a new puppy. Oh, and if they break out into a song during the movie…perfection! My husband is the complete opposite. This is why we don’t see movies or watch much tv together.
Day 14: I need this sign! I make two pitchers of sweet tea a week! And I occasionally have to make my own sunshine!
Day 15: I have a small glass of water on my nightstand every night, just in case I get thirsty. And every night, if I don’t drink it, my 19 year old cat (who weighs about 13 pounds and is a complete klutz) manages to make her way across me to tip it over and spill it everywhere. Usually between 3-4 in the morning. You’d think one of us would learn our lesson.
Day 16: As I have said before, I love Christmas trees & over the years I have been given some very special ornaments. Today I added 3 new ones to my tree. They are each so special to me. They represent a relationship with someone who is or was a part of my life. They are wonderful reminders of how truly blessed I am.
Day 17: I’m pretty sure I’ve seen most of these 1st hand. https://www.facebook.com/skimonster.bg/videos/1575584372708155/
Day 18: I love my family. We have a good life. We occasionally fall off the rails but we help each other find our way back on track. So happy to spend another candlelight service at OHCC with these peeps!
Day 19: I can recite every word and sing every song in The Little Mermaid but I can’t remember to take my vitamins.
Day 20: I saw Valentine candy on shelves today. It was right next to Christmas decorations. The end of times is near.
Day 21: Found out today that our cat Leo has struvite crystals and has to have special food. My 19 y/o cat is on special food because she’s allergic to the world. But she can’t eat the special food Leo is on because it isn’t grain free. The glam life of The Staff just got a bit more complicated. And expensive.
Day 22: My husband & I wrapped presents tonight. He is a much better gift wrapper than I. He managed to wrap around 20 gifts. I wrapped 9. Two were gift bags.
Day 23: I just realized that all my comfy pants, sweat pants & yoga pants are dirty. This is officially a Christmas emergency. I have fudge to eat.
Day 24: I can sing, make goofy voices and dance around crazy in front of my students but making a video was so awkward for me! So here’s to awkwardness and crazy hairs sticking out everywhere! Merry Christmas!
Day 25: Nerf gun wars, matching hats, and a lovely church service made for a great day. Also, I was ready for bed at around 3:30 pm.
