I'm excited to bake and cook and decorate in a way that I wasn't yesterday. I'm excited to get to go see the Christmas tree lighting. I'm excited that in a week Veronica is going to be three miles away and we're going to be able to do stupid holiday stuff together, that no one else is going to want to do. I think I want to make pine cone turkeys :-)
I'm excited for Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving, even if the logistics can become complicated. Who cares? C.T.F.D. Enjoy the family, and friends and good food and just the happiness that comes from spending a day, or a few days, being Thankful. I might even participate in the annual November Facebook challenge of posting something each day that I'm thankful for.
I still don't want to go overboard on decorating my apartment or spending a lot of money. That's one of the great things about living in a major metropolitan area. There is always something holiday related happening for the cost of next to nothing. Heck, there will come a point where we can just go get in the car and drink hot cocoa and look at Christmas lights every night of the week if that's what we want to do.
So here I go, off to plan and make lists and be happy that I am finally out of my anti-holiday funk.
