Listening to: My Favorite Things
Thought for the day: The soul is healed by being with children. ~Old English Proverb
December and I have not gotten along very well since my parents divorced when I was eight and I was immediately shoved into the bright harsh light of THERE IS NO SANTA CLAUS. I recently decided I was going to fight tooth and nail to have a good holiday season this year no matter what. What better way than to kick all off the holiday season with my hilarious daughter, Christian. She helped me pick out my Christmas tree today. This photo features my tree being shoved through the Christmas tree netting device. In my opinion it is one of the coolest inventions; so simple yet so useful.
Christian and I laughed almost the entire time we were together today. From me telling her my theory that cut Christmas tree zombies will rise up and eat all of humanity to her fearing I was going to ninja chop the Lowe’s employee for carrying the tree to my car (I am a control freak and she knows it) to hunting for her an ugly-ass Christmas sweater at the Goodwill to discussing my love life………. we giggled like two long-lost friends. In a way we are. If today is any indication of what December holds for me, I stand a very good chance of overcoming any holiday malaise that comes my way. I do love my children more than anything.
