the christmas spirit is alive and well. it just took its sweet fucking time getting here.
today, The Boy asked me to read him a bedtime story. completely melted my heart. tonight, we walked through horshoe bend, together as a family, and laughed. a lot.
i’m getting married in six months. which seems waaaaaay too far away.
had way too much fun with the girls yesterday at lunch, even if we were unexpectedly laden with child. i always enjoy time with the wilde children.
almost all of my shopping is done. gonna go out one more time tomorrow to see what i can do, last minute. i’ve got a yearly tradition of hitting target on christmas eve. and you always see everyone there, for some odd reason. everyone migrates to target on christmas eve. i will probably see you tomorrow on christmas eve.
i just want to say, right now, that KLB makes me smile. big ole time.
we played many a card game tonight. fun times. we also cooked a BUNCH.. fudge, banana nut muffins, tacos.. the house is full of family smells. tomorrow morning.. the ultimate.. PANCAKES.
this afternoon, during our nap, while The Boy slept in his room and bryan and i napped on the couch, i realized something.. life is really pretty good. and all of the people who are so obviously unhappy.. i pity them. at one point, rage was prevalent.. at another point, there was indifference.. but now, it’s pity.
there is a lovely christmas ahead. i can’t wait.
i hope you look around and find people you love around you. i hope you can find satisfaction in what is available to you. and more than anything, i wish you the happiest, merriest holiday season.
i’ll talk to you after the day.
