Right? Seriously, 2016 was tough. 2017 was harder. Here’s hoping that 2018 gets better. I do firmly believe that as exhausted, frustrated and angry as many of us are, we remain deeply motivated and committed. What the opposition has yet to fully realize is the inherent danger of taking on women. Often underestimated and considered weak, we are so much stronger and resilient than given credit for because we had to be that way in order to survive. Get Ready — Cuz, Here We Come is my 2018 motto. Okay, this was supposed to be super cheery, fun post, not a lecture, so I’m getting off my high horse … for now.
Home Sweet Home for Christmas
I cannot believe Christmas is one week from today. ONE WEEK! In a few days, I leave for the frozen tundra I call home. It’s in the 40’s now, which is actually quite balmy for them, but will be in the low 20s and possibly snowing when I arrive. Thanks, Minnesota. Love ya too!
So … this is always awkward because it makes me feel very Grinch-like, but I do very little Christmas shopping. I’m lazy! My nephews and niece just want money and I refuse to check luggage, so I get a lot of gift certificates for the rest of my family. Thus, Christmas shopping is pretty easy for me, albeit boring, because I truly do love it.
Right now I feel a tad overwhelmed. I need to do laundry. Make creamy caramels. Pack. Clean my apartment because even though I live like a sloth while at home, I’ll be damned if someone robs me and sees how messy my apartment is while I”m gone. Don’t you judge me, thief! 😀 Logical? Nope. But when I have ever professed to be normal?
Some Holiday Funnies for You
I love Christmas but it can be stressful. And sometimes downright annoying when you’re standing in a line with 20+ plus people or packed into a mall like sardines. Any holiday cheer you were feeling can disappear in a nanosecond. So I’m sharing a few of my favorite holiday memes to help you maintain/find your holiday spirit.
This happens to everyone … right?
I swear I wasn’t naughty; I swear I don’t think of you as judgmental. Err … you’re not like God, right? You don’t know when I’m lying … right? Right?
Via Twitter I chatted with Jana (Jana Says) and Mackenzie (Organic Butterfly Blog) about how freaky we find Elf in the Shelf. Seriously, I encourage all felines to rise up and eradicate that damn elf. Be gone, Satan! I mean Elf. Nope, I’m sticking with Satan.
This is one of my favorite Christmas memes. Look at that dog’s expression. Priceless!
Yup. As a kid, all I wanted was the latest, greatest toy. As an adult, world peace and a nap sound about right. And maybe impeachment. Just saying.
This will not be my fate this year. I will stay strong and behave. My willpower is teflon. Oh look! Christmas cookies! So. Screwed.
What are your plans for the holidays? Any advice on how to not go completely crazy and keep from two-fisting cookies and candy?
