So it tis the season! I like this cartoon a bunch! But I really dislike Eggnog no matter how much liquor you put in it.
I figure I should get out now what I dislike about the holidays..just to get it out of my system and not have to burn for blowing my temper later.
I dislike the following:
Hunting for the perfect tree
Rude people with the bahumbug spirit in shopping centers
I dislike having to drive to my parents an hour and a half away then driving to my dad's(who is always complaining) then driving an hour to see my brothers, then and hour to my sister in laws then going home rushing to put out gifts then waking up rushing and having to drive to my mother in laws. Though I love seeing everyone, I can't stand the driving!!
It is so cold here during the winter and I can't stand cold.
I dislike feeling guilty for eating too much
But there is so much I do love....Mostly
This year is going to be so exciting waking up in our new home and watching my two year old open gifts. He has already snuck in the guest bedroom and peaked...try taking a toy from a two year old. I love the way my parents dote on him during the holidays. This will be the first year that I have with 2 new nieces in our family. This year we won't be driving 'as much' as previous years. My mother makes a stuff ham that kicks ass like nobody's business. Hubby always manages to buy me something to make me blush. I almost always get some Christmas nookie.
Our tree always looks perfect. I love watching the dogs eat thier treats from thier Christmas stockings..minus the occasional territorial growl. And I love being reminded every year that Christmas is not just about gifts, it's family, its the gift of life and love...who could not love that!
Plus....I got the best freaking Christmas gifts ever for everyone this year!! HA HA HA HO HO HO!
