She Keeps Passing Me By

You know when you blink and life happens? 

That’s what it feels like around here.

I keep blinking and life is busy passing us by. It’s amazing all the things that have taken place in the last week alone.

Thanksgiving was a hot, albeit, delicious, mess.
Ok, maybe I was the mess since I drank a little too much champagne...
I admit to nothing other than good cooking.
Thanksgiving was a day of thanks for all the many glorious things in our lives.
  
On Friday, we cut down our tree.

Saturday, we took down the decorations and I went to town. Decorating, that is. Later that night, I hit the town with my sister. And by hitting the town, I mean we headed to a 7 pm movie so we could call popcorn dinner and laughed our faces off watching the final installment of Breaking Dawn. 

On a side note, did anyone else notice that glitter fabulous sex scene?! Really, I had no idea the bedroom could make sparkles and unicorns come to life. Apparently it can if you’re a vampire...

Sunday we trimmed the tree making it look "boo-tee-ful." Thanks hunny, wrong holiday. "Ho-Ho-Ho! Jingle bells." You got it! 

And on Monday, we put the house on the market. 

Yep, you heard me. 

We’re going to see where it takes us...definitely NOT out of the burbs though. We love it here. Even if it does mean dealing with snot face moms from time to time. 

As for the pending playdate, I decided NOT to talk to her.

Here’s why: she’s not a close or even kinda friend - she was a potential friend. I gave her the benefit of the doubt that MAYBE it was too much - the holidays, traveling, making new friends since moving to town, etc. So at the playdate, made it like we were meeting for the second time (kinda true). It went well, she was perfectly cordial to me in front of the other woman, but she kept competing in conversation. 

Your sitter is good? Mine is great. You have a good pie recipe? I have a great menu for any holiday you’d like. Your sitter needs 1 month notice? Mine needs a year. No, seriously, a full year. 

I was never one to play keeping up with the Jones’, so when we said our goodbyes and she ignored me, I didn’t care. 

After all, you can’t be friends with everyone. 

How was the start of your holiday season?
