Ew. It’s Monday. And ew. LilZ has to go back to school and MrZ has to go back to work. And ew. It’s raining and cold. This day is going to feel like the quintessential Monday.
(I am betting I didn’t use that word right. But you know what? I kinda don’t care. It’s a Q-word and how often can you use those?)
The last five days were GREAT. I loved having my family in town. I loved finally getting to meet my brother’s girlfriend. I loved cooking for my family and I loved having MrZ and LilZ around more than usual. Because of all of this? I woke up VERY irritated this morning. Why, exactly, can’t EVERY day be a holiday?
Because we’d all be broke and living on the streets, I’m guessing.
I am very proud to say that I did absolutely ZERO Christmas shopping this weekend. Some financial advisor on CNN told me that the BEST sales this season would actually be the week BEFORE Christmas. So, unless I was afraid something would sell out, I should wait to do my shopping. And I believed her! She sounded like she knew what she was talking about! And also? I hate Christmas shopping Thanksgiving weekend, so I’ll take ANY excuse I can possibly find to avoid it. People who stand at the door waiting for a store to open at 5am? Scare me.
So, I’m a tad bit on the grumpy side since today is just all around SUCKY. But, I’m going to try to make the best of it by getting our Christmas decorations out and starting to get in the Holiday spirit. I also may get drunk. We’ll see.
