I originally wrote this on Friday (note: there was NO lobster mac & cheese), and then I got home, we had nothing for dinner, we went to 4 restaurants until we could find one that could fit is in, came home, crashed on the house and watched The Hangover 2 before crawling into bed. Saturday was a million errands and then my company Christmas party which means Sunday was a right off. So, our Christmas tree was put up on Monday. But it’s up!
Today I finally woke up in the Christmas spirit. Finally!
I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to realize Christmas is just around the freaking corner!
Maybe it’s because we had such a mild fall. No snow? Definitely not Christmas.
Or maybe it’s because The Cowboy and I have just been so freaking busy we haven’t had a dang second to even think about Christmas, let alone be in the Christmas spirit (and my failed jelly over the weekend kinda killed a portion of the Christmas spirit I had then).
Not only are we putting up our tree, we have awesome Christmas door hangers (much to the chagrin of The Cowboy) AND I’ve done some Christmas shopping! Not much, just part of The Cowboy’s gift and my MIL’s gift, but it’s a start!
Now? On to baking! (with 2 recipes to follow……tomorrow?)Read More

12/13: Best Gift (here)

Pardon me while I whine a bit this morning.
It’s only 9am and it already feels like one of those days. Not for any reason in particular, just because.
I hate those days; always such a downer.
I still have a bit of a hangover from my migraine yesterday (blech) and I’m just not feeling it today.
I even decided to be fancy and wear red (yes, red) pants to work today in the hopes that it would brighten my mood. Instead, I’m questioning why in the world I thought it would be a good idea to wear red pants.
Tuesday is definitely not my day.
I keep telling myself I just have to make it to Friday.
Make it to Friday and I’ll have 2 whole weeks off. Two blissful weeks off work.
Then I think about all the work I have to do in the next four days combined with finishing off grocery shopping and Christmas goodie making (thank goodness we got the tree up last night!) and I freeze.
Because it’s all just too much.
I feel like I’m so far behind at my job after quitting and coming back.
I feel like I did myself a disservice. I’ve already been told that in order to be promoted I have a lot I have to improve on, and I’m just not sure how to get there. I’m not.
And so, today is one of those days.
I hope this feeling will pass by tomorrow.Read More
