I was a good girl this year. Okay, before you laugh… just hear me out on this one.
I know I made mistakes, but in all honesty it was a lot less than the amount I made last year or even the year before. I worked hard and I kept myself mostly out of trouble. Sure, I tripped up a bit here and there but I rose to the occasion by dusting myself off, fixing the issue and made sure to immediately get back to business as usual. I hope you will see that in the grand scheme of things, I was a pretty good girl and hopefully I will be even better next year.
I’m sorry there aren’t any milk and cookies for you. I’d say I was afraid the cats would get to it and that’s mostly true. But let’s face it… it’s because we ate them all. We need to go on a diet real bad in our house. I wish I had a job like yours where everyone expects me to be jiggling and jolly about it. But alas, I do not. Could you hook me up with a new gym membership? I had one… and then I gave it away to someone else who felt in need of one that I wasn’t using as often as I should have been. They weren’t particularly grateful for it because they closed the account without giving me the chance to take it back over. Blah.
I’m learning to be thankful – not just for the 30 days leading up to Thanksgiving, but every day. I’m getting better about this and I’m once again thankful that that seems to be paying off. I hope you will take that into consideration this year when you are placing neatly wrapped gifts under the Christmas tree. I do genuinely deserve something a little nice and believe me… I will be so very thankful for anything I get (and not fussy about the things I don’t – there’s always next year).
I made a Christmas wish list for my boyfriend. In retrospect, it was more of a wish list and not a “things I genuinely need” list. I’m feeling a bit guilty and irresponsible for that. I really should have asked for new glasses. They would have been cheaper than the very expensive camera I asked him for and received. So if there’s anything I want to ask you for for myself, it’s a little Christmas magic to help me acquire new glasses myself soon.
But more importantly… Send a little Christmas magic to the man I love and all of my friends who have stuck by me for years now. They all deserve it so much more just for being there to keep me stable. I wouldn’t have gotten this far without them.
P.S. Sorry for the cat hair. There’s a lint roller in the first kitchen drawer.
