So...I have decided. I have a way better idea about how Thanksgiving should go. Thanksgiving should be on the first Thursday of the month, not the fourth! Then the rest of November up until Christmas, can be Christmas time! Who's with me? I say we all just decide to do this. Thanksgiving, this Thursday, and then we can start on Christmas. It's not like the stores don't already do that.
I know lots of people are all thanky and stuff and that's just fine I suppose, but if I'm being honest, I get sick of it. When I look on facebook and see the same thanky stuff over and over "I'm so grateful for a warm bed" or, "I'm so thankful for my dear sweet husband", I just get a little...bleh.
Thanksgiving basically just has one day of great food and I love that day. But half the reason I love that day is because I start watching Christmas movies that day, and decorating the next.
Christmas for me is like a sister. I miss it. I long for it. I look up pictures of it to help tie me over.
I listened to a Christmas song today (who am I kidding...I listened to tons of Christmas songs today) and I almost cried. I mean I just loved it so much that it about made me cry. THAT is my level of Christmas connection.
That being said, I do cry pretty easily these days. I am on some medication that pretty much makes me very emotional. I end up crying because I'm crying. Like, I start off crying...about something silly...and then I start crying more because I am crying, about something silly. Hopefully I wont have to be on this danged medicine for much longer.
In other news, Clayton loves very much grapefruit and carrot juice. I don't particularly like it at all. But I drink it because of the vitamin C. And it's nice to have Clayton like something like that so much. Do you know how many carrots we drink? Lots! And did you know grapefruit is just chalk-full of goodness?! That's why I drink it. Clay LOVES the grapefruity taste. My face scrunches at it.
That's all for now, I shall go cry that it is still Thanksgiving time! (just joking, I'm fine about it. I am going to try and make some fall decor to brighten my Thanksgiving mood a bit- that fallish decor in the picture above is about the only thing that makes me happy about November, and my sister was born in November so I suppose I'm glad it exists)
