I mean, seriously. I feel like it was yesterday that I was admitting I let Halloween get away without properly enjoying it! But I fully intend to enjoy the hell out of the rest of the holidays this year. Including trying not to be such a Grinch. I normally hate Christmas because it comes with so much stress, but this year, instead of stressing, I’m going to aim to enjoy the craziness, be thankful for so many loving people in my life and stop yelling at so many bad drivers in crowded parking lots.
Well, maybe don’t hold me to that last one. I mean, have you seen the a-holes at Brentwood Promenade or Whole Foods lately? It gets worse every year, I swear.
So it’s also DAY 19 of the detox. These 3 weeks have flown by. I even got through a horrible bout of the flu on the detox and didn’t die, or take Nyquil, so I’m pretty proud of that. I love the food I’ve been eating, and really only miss grapes (fresh and fermented, if you know what I mean!), so that’s pretty rad. My first of several Thanksgiving celebrations is tomorrow, so I won’t be able to enjoy my mom’s mashed potatoes, but that’s okay. She makes a killer turkey, and I’ll bring my own sides, so all is well. Again, no wine will be the worst part, but I can totally deal.
You know what I really love? Sleeping. Man, that shiz is awesome. It has been PERFECT sleeping temperature in our house this week and going to work has been really hard as a result. Being wrapped in my sheet and quilt, buried in my pillow…sigh. I just really love sleeping. I’m getting warm fuzzies just thinking about it.
But even though I LOVE sleeping, I hate going to bed. Isn’t that dumb? But I get kinda bummed that another day is over and I have to start all over again in a few hours. Tonight I won’t feel that way, because tomorrow is Saturday, but then I won’t want to go to bed tomorrow because I’ll be loving Saturday so much. Rough life, huh? Hehehe.
I also really REALLY REALLY love my husband. He has been working so hard all year, helping build a successful business, and then coming home and helping me stay on track by cooking super delicious meals. I’m cooking more now, too, so that helps, but I would definitely not be where I am if I didn’t have him to help. He’s kind of the best. Yay, Mr. T!
We’re also approaching a sad time, with the one year anniversary of Brandon and Grandpa’s death just around the corner…it’s so weird that it’s been a year. It still doesn’t feel real. But it is, and it sucks, but for the first time in my life, I feel like I’m strong enough to embrace my sadness without letting it consume me. And so, while I’m sad, I’m also really proud of myself.
I miss my friends. I haven’t seen hardly any of my friends in a really long time. Growing up kind of sucks that way…everyone gets so busy, then we never see each other, and that’s a huge bummer. So friends, please know I love you, think of you all the time and miss you. Here’s hoping we can make plans to visit before the end of the year!
Well, that’s mostly all the random things I have to chat about, so here are some funny things.
As you were.
