So, the holidays are upon us. And that means lots of decorating, cooking, planning, working, executing, helping, socializing, and the like.
Or, if you’re me, it means wandering around Vons at 8pm on Saturday muttering to yourself about sweet potato casserole.
I still have no idea what my plans are for Thanksgiving.
I got my big tree up, but have no clue what I’m doing for the rest of my Christmas decorating.
I have yet to finish Christmas shopping.
Holiday crafting? LOLOLOLOL
And to top it all off, the grocery store didn’t have the Land O’Lakes hot cocoa I like.
But I have been drinking a lot of seasonal coffee beverages and watching holiday themed sitcom reruns. So, you know, I’m not totally behind.
And my tree is stunning, if I do say so myself. And I do.
Oh! I also bought the ingredients to make stuffing to bring to the office potluck on Friday. So I guess Thursday night I’ll be up until all hours making stuffing. I’m a little nervous, because while I’ve made my grandmother’s recipe for the past few years, I’ve always known that my mother is just a phone call away for questions. I get the feeling she won’t want to answer my dumb cooking questions at 3am her time, so I’m on my own this year.
As far as the rest of it? I just don’t wanna. Guys, the struggle is real.
I mostly want to spend the next six weeks in a bubble bath with my Kindle. Can we arrange that? It doesn’t help my motivation that for the past 24 hours I’ve a headache that’s so bad it’s causing random spasms and twitches in my facial muscles. That’s a great, not crazy, look for the office.
So yeah, I have plenty of holiday spirit, but right now I mostly want to use it to take holiday naps. I want to do more to prepare and immerse myself in holiday joy, but I’m tired. And cranky. Not sure yet which one is winning. I’ll keep you all updated.
