I was in such a bad mood yesterday. Everything was upsetting me and nothing was making me feel better. My Christmas shopping isn’t done, I hate my hair, I don’t get to see my family for the holidays, and when I stepped on the scale, I got the high score.
Just when I was starting to feel a little better later in the day, this happened.
I didn’t even know nail polish bottles could break without some major effort. That happened after a 2 inch fall from my hand to the floor. Polish got all over my bathroom floor, cabinets, and me. Freakin’ awesome.
Anyway, since the holiday season should be filled with cheer and all I’m doing is whining about my first world problems, I thought I would list a few things that make me happy about the holidays in an effort to stop being such a whiney baby.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Probably my favorite Christmas movie of all time. I swear I laugh every time I see Clark running up the stairs with the squirrel on his back. And apparently you can buy that squirrel.
People seem to either love or hate egg nog. I love it. Especially on top of vanilla ice cream. I love it even more now that I found this when searching for pictures of egg nog.
Everything is closed Christmas Day
I always have to be doing something or running errands. It’s annoying. When I’m watching TV, I can’t even make it through a commercial without feeling the need to get up and clean or go somewhere. So I love that Christmas forces me to do nothing and relax. And I love going to the movies on Christmas Day.
I love the cold. Not that I would know anything about that since it was 85 degrees in Orlando yesterday and my 8 mile run this morning was done in shorts and a tank top. Lame. I am in serious need of a cold front.
Boots and Scarves
It’s a scientific fact that I look better in boots and scarves than in any other article of clothing. Something about the fat calf to double chin coverage ratio that really works for me. Plus, if you wear a scarf just right, you only have to style the top half of your hair.
So tell me, what’s your favorite thing about the holiday season?
Do you and your significant other set a limit on how much money you spend or have a limit on the number of gifts you buy for each other?
I hope you all have a really safe and happy holiday. :-)
