I’ve been meaning to post for weeks now, but a series of weddings, Halloween events, and other weekly distractions have definitely taken their toll. Until today, I’ve honestly just felt completely done- worn out and just wanting to do the bare minimum for a while.
Okay, I still feel that way a little bit.
Don’t get me wrong, everything that I’ve done over the past two months has been superbly wonderful- but all in quick succession was a little too much. Thankfully, things are finally quieting down… for a while.
While Thanksgiving and Glenn’s birthday is next week, both will be pretty muted since he’s on an ass kicking diet and isn’t feeling up to really celebrating either. So I have a solid 15 days of luxury and laziness before the Christmas season gets in full swing. I could wait until halfway through December, too, but we all know I’m not that kind of girl. So, until then- these are the things I’m planning on doing (as lazily as possible):
Watch the Gilmore Girls, “A Year in the Life”. I am ridiculously pumped for this. Glenn and I bonded over many things over the years, but the Gilmore Girls is definitely something of “ours.” We’ve re-watched the season every fall since we got married. It’s like a really weird, oddly specific thing that we both enjoy.
Cleaning my house. Because dear lord I have not had time to deep clean, and between the holiday decorations and the weekend trips it’s been in a pretty consistent state of disarray.
That’s all I got.
Yea, I’m not really good at not doing things.
Okay, you got me. I’m already in stage 2 of the Christmas Enjoyment Scale- “Planning and Purchasing”. This is, of course, of the obvious and universally known 5 point Christmas Enjoyment Scale (CES). I’ve already surpassed stage one, “Pinning,” and have gone on to blow out bank account buying presents and decorations. Poor Glenn.
Until December 1st, this is all just in good fun. I can peruse possible gifts and find little pieces for the home here and there to give it that warm, cozy winter feel (despite the fact that it’s still reaching 80 degrees outside), but nothing is mandatory in my mind just yet.
I can stop whenever I want to, I swear.
That said, be forewarned that most of my posts in the next month and a half will likely revolve around the holiday to some degree. I mean, what is life if not a celebration, right?
