I survived a light-blue Christmas
I survived the holiday alone and to be perfectly honest, was not too sure how it would unfold. I was missing family, friends and having to work which did not leave me feeling full of jingle bell rock. Yes, I volunteered to work (from home) so my co-workers could spend time with their families. Well I learned one thing, Lynne won’t be raising her hand up anymore. I don’t want to be teacher’s pet that’s for sure.
I may not have had family in town but certainly would have gotten out and visited a senior home or served food somewhere to be part of Christmas. I felt very disconnected, even the Disney parade was taped three days earlier and I was not entertained at all.
I won’t bore you with how I filled the day but there were a few highlights. Nothing as grand as most of your oohs and aahs, but I did manage to enjoy these things.
Santa gave my doggie, Jack-Black, a pink girl pig for Christmas. He was thrilled (or at least he appeared to be) and I think he’s in love too.
Santa felt so sorry for me he got me some new shoes. Not just any shoe, no, he got me some Converse. I have been wearing “Chuck’s since I was a teenager and will wear them when I’m 90.
I donned an apron and actually (I know, gasp) baked some cookies. From scratch and even colored the icing. I felt so accomplished.
I have to show my kicks again because they are just the coolest damn shoes. If you are not wearing “Chucks”, well, you just need to.
To round out this holiday I noticed this caption on a Philosophy gift set I received. I will make this my motto for the new year. Enough said.
I may not have had a holiday like most of you, but I also know it was a far cry better than many experienced. Now it’s on to New Years where I will be out ringing in 2013. My question is, can I get away with wearing my new kicks with a dress? Probably not…
I hope your holidays are being merry and bright!!!
