We STILL didn't get a tree.
I guess we aren't getting one this year.
I don't think Kaish cares that much.
If it is bothering him, I likely won't find out until he is 19 and in therapy.
I guess I will take my chances.
I finally started addressing the Christmas cards.
I can't find my address book.
You know the last time I used it?
I bet it is with the leftover cards from last year.
Who knows where they are?
Certainly not me.
I opened the garage door to take a gander and see if I could find it amongst the wrapping paper or the unused ornaments.
Seeing all of the things that I needed to be doing depressed me so I slammed the door and decided to text the people that are getting cards.
I texted one of my co workers for his address.
When he sent it I thanked him and told him to be on the lookout because I was coming to rob him soon.
I don't think he believes me.
I took Kaish and Jonathon to youth group on Tuesday night and then proceeded to the store to buy the first and ONLY present I have gotten so far.
Are you wondering when exactly I am going to go shopping?
I am shooting a wedding tomorrow.
I am very excited.
There is not going to be a fancy dress
or an artistic venue.
There is not even going to be a bouquet.
You know what is going to be there though?
I love that.
Don't get me wrong.
A fancy wedding is very exciting.
I love adore a fancy wedding every now and again.
this feels so right.
So perfect for 2 days before Christmas.
Simple and uncomplicated and perfect.
We are going to make gingerbread cookies tomorrow when the kids get home from school.
They have off on Friday and they are eager for vacation to start.
Gary has off- are you ready for this?
3 days in a row.
I know. I know. CRAZY, right?
Saturday, Sunday AND Monday.
Next weekend he doesn't even get off on New Years Day.
I am not going to think about next weekend though.
I am just going to focus on this weekend.
I feel like I won the lottery.
You know what else makes me feel like I won the lottery?
I love them so much.
Every day they are a blessing.
When they are messy. And grumpy. And ornery.
I love them.
Wishing you the most happy holidays.
Hug the ones you love.
And if you are without anyone to hug,
go and make a new friend.
Everyone needs some love.
