Don’t you love the title of this post? So creative, right?
It’s that time of the year where my brain is all over the place. I want to do so many things and the reality of it is, I end up doing very little of it. With all of the schedules we have to pay attention to for choir (three choirs!), ASB (student government) and show rehearsals, I usually only think a week or two ahead before my head explodes.
I just ordered the pics to put in our Christmas card so I am a little behind on that. I had a wonderful photo that I took last year, but The Teen informed me that he had braces in the pic and since he has since had them removed, the jig would be up and everyone would know I used an older picture. But when your oldest refuses to take a picture for you, you have to get creative. So, I had to find another photo to use. Hence, the delay.
I have yet to bake any cookies. That used to be a fun activity for me but now that I cannot eat them, I am so over it. I do it for the family though and the people we see at Christmas time. They are appreciative and I get some joy in seeing them eaten. Some.
There is one book that I promised I would read before the end of the year and that book is Pride and Prejudice. Do I want to read it? No. I have no desire to. I am so sorry to admit that because I know that it is a beloved book for many. What I want to read is weird stuff. Speculative fiction or literary fiction with heavy themes. BUT, I feel as if I can’t be a book blogger without reading it so I am going to push through my hesitation and probably start it this weekend. I can’t promise I’ll finish it but I’ll give it a go.
I still have shopping to do. I am not stressing over it but at some point it has to be done. I am not loving the commercial aspect of the holiday AT ALL. I just want to kick back in PJ’s, drink hot cocoa and make soup. Is that too much to ask?
Anyway, it’s almost Friday. I think I can make it till then.
