It’s December 1st. Tradition says that if you say those words together today you’ll have some good luck or good vibes or good something.
Don’t we all need some good vibes?
How are you? You doin’ ok? Made it through Thanksgiving? Me too. It was so much fun.
I miss it already.
I’m back at work after a whole week off. Actually I was back at work yesterday but it didn’t feel real yet. I was still avoiding all the work by asking people about their turkeys. It was awkward. People would come into my office to talk about some upcoming event and I’d redirect, deflect and evade.
“Can we go over this event agenda…” they’d say trying to keep me ontrack.
“Agenda…hmmm….yeah. What was your agenda for dessert on Thanksgiving? Let’s talk about that first.” I’d fire back.
I was hopeless. By 1pm I was finally ready to give it up. No one seemed to be having the post tramatic turkey day withdrawal like me.
So what’s next baby? Christmas? Hanukkah? New Year’s?
I like the holidays, what can I say? I like seeing friends and family. I like baking cookies. I like buying gifts. I like the whole damn thing.
One day, when my kids don’t see me everyday and my husband has lost most of his sight, I’ll be one of those people that not only decorates their home, but also themselves.
That’s right. I’m talking themed clothing people!
Christmas sweaters. Thanksgiving earrings. Halloween PJs. Oh it’ll be on.
Till then – here’s some random photos to enjoy. My kitchen as I prepped. My turkey (apparently claried butter is the way to go). A couple of people passed out on the couch after dinner – which I consider the ultimate compliment. Photos of the hike my sister orgnaized for a few of us. I think more people would have joined had they known we would be stopping at a Vineyard on the way home. True story.
