I’m tired again… but at least today there isn’t as much crap laying around. I made a good dent in the debris yesterday. I made it to the gym this morning and came home to get meals ready and the hubby out the door. I took a shower after and decided I needed ten minutes of shut-eye while it was still dark outside. Long story short, ten became 15 and now I’m groggy, nursing a cup of coffee to motivate myself. I’d rather lie around the house all day. The oven is on, there are cookies baking, and I’d love to take Cody for a walk when it isn’t chilly out.
Last night kicked off the holiday season for me. While Carver was out bowling, I was making cookies and watching two of my favorite holiday movies: Elf, and Mickey’s Christmas Carol. I grew up watching the Disney movie, and it just doesn’t seem like the holidays without that movie – though the 80 degree weather probably doesn’t help. Today Elf is on again and The Polar Express is on, another great movie. I must have been exhausted last night watching these movies because I got into an internal conversation (with myself) about the themes of these movies: blind faith, trust, social expectations, sharing.
