NaBloPoMo, xxx

Whoot whoot, we have reached triple x! Not only does this mean today is a porn free-for-all, it also means this is the last day on which I am obligated to blog. I realize that the last month of posts have been somewhat boring, maybe not the most interesting of stuff, and often filled with me whining. Because hey, if I can't say something funny or interesting, let me complain. I know I can do that. But, I want to end on a high note. You'll look back (delusionally) at NaBloPoMo and remember me as Miss Mary Sunshine, so I thought I would share ...

Stuff that Makes Me Happy

  • Finding out we're having a girl! I would have been just as happy if it was a boy; it is the finding out part that rocks.
  • Making other people smile. Thanks Mr. Puffy!
  • Knitting. I haven't made much progress lately, but I still enjoy it. Hooray knitting!
  • Completing and mailing our holiday cards out BEFORE the holidays! Thanks Tana for the unintentional nudge.
  • Flowers.
  • Lists.
  • Christmas lights. This actually takes some 'splaining. Every year I like to put Christmas lights up in my office. Not because I am believe in God or embrace the religious overtone of the holiday, but because they are pretty. Which, now that I think about it, basically sums up my entire Christmas philosophy. I don't believe in the God or Jesus stuff associated with this time of year, but I like the trees and the lights and the presents because the season is fun and pretty, so yah, let's do it. In any event, my office, it's lights. Usually I end up going in on the Monday after Thanksgiving and spending the morning on a chair with Kay handing me hanger things and the lights. This year, however, I got off easy because I never took the lights down last year. I didn't light them up after New Year's, but I didn't take them down either. I'd say this has me hovering around an 8 on the TrailerTrash-o-meter. Now that the holiday season is here, I have been lighting them up and enjoying that festive tiki bar atmosphere that only faux wood paneled walls and multi-colored Christmas lights can give you. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
  • Visiting friends. Visiting family. Anyone visiting who is visiting for good reasons, not to like, jack the television or the china.
  • Cake.
  • Actually blogging everyday for NaBloPoMo.
  • Christmas trees. Especially Christmas trees that were purchased and put up last night, days before my husband goes abroad. I only have to do the ornaments and that's not a bad thing to do alone. In fact, if you are a control freak who likes things "just right" and your "just right" involves angles and spaces and stuff other people can't see, well then, doing the ornaments alone isn't a bad thing at all, in fact, it is like a holiday present early. And, in case you are curious, I am totally ignoring the part where we were the very first customers of the season at the Christmas tree store and that the guy made a comment about getting X type of tree to help ensure that its needles last until Christmas.
  • Naps.
  • Dental floss.
  • Wearing hand knit socks.
  • Free porn. Come on, you didn't expect me to leave that one out when we are on NaBloPoMo XXX did ya?

    I find that it's impossible to be grumpy around Christmas lights. They're just so shiny and twinkly! I'm one of those people who like the ornaments on the tree to be "just so" and I'll actually mess around with the tree until the day we take it down.

    And a girl! Awesome. :) Not that a boy would be less awesome.

    How wonderful - a little girl. I so wish my sister had produced little girls. I know I shouldn't criticize since I didn't produce any at all, but still..... So agree about the naps.
