Is it just me or is anyone else having a tough time concentrating? I go into the office and I just want to listen to Christmas music, eat cookies and shop for presents. All of my Christmas shopping is done and I have work to do!
What is wrong with me? I’ve got visions of sugar plums dancing in my head during the day, that can’t be right. Maybe it’s because I’m taking almost two weeks off from work, something I rarely if ever do. In those two weeks, so many things will occur, and no I’m not counting the stupid Mayan Apocalypse, which by all accounts could happen because I always said that the world would probably end if I ever found myself in a relationship.
Miracle of all miracles, I am in a relationship with a great guy, so I really hope the world doesn’t end before I can see him again. While we won’t see each other on Christmas, we will have a very Happy New Year. That holiday is quickly becoming my favorite only because I will get to spend it with Paul.
But there is also Christmas, which I always love. Every year I enjoy it in a different way because I watch my nephews get excited about it. I remember the feeling of anticipation, the excitement at wondering what Santa left me under the tree and I get to relive it through them.
Of course, there is also all of the celebrations. My sister, my mom and I always go out together for a special holiday dinner just the three of us. We go to a restaurant in Sacramento with great food, enjoy some fancy cocktails, and other variations of holiday cheer.
The Festivus Tweetup is on Tuesday and various work function will occur throughout the week. Not to mention Pre-Christmas Eve taco party with friends, Christmas Eve with family and then Christmas Day with more family. It’s the food, wine and good times that I enjoy the most in the holiday season. I just want the fun to begin now!
