I ordered a pizza for the three kids (Addi is here tonight). I answered the door and the delivery dude was like, “I wouldn’t normally say something like this to a customer, but holy shit that is a huge Christmas tree. It’s beautiful. Can I be here on Christmas morning? Do your kids know how lucky they are?!” It sounds a bit weird when I read it back, but I promise it was actually really sweet and cute and genuine.
Should I tell the kids about it tonight? 🤣
The rest of the decorating is in progress. We’re going to need to do a bit of shopping in order to finalize things. For now, a pizza is on its way, and I plan to cuddle up on the couch to finish Orange Bitter.
4 Hands Liquid Wet Hopped India Pale Ale. Beer of the day.
I just knocked out like half my Christmas shopping with one huge Amazon order. I don’t normally get started this early. I’m determined to be more on top of shit this year.
Today I’m thankful for:
My husband. He’s my soul mate. I never really believed in mushy stuff like that before I met him. Now I’m big sappy love chick.
My kids. They’re growing up so fast, but they’re loving, kind, smart, and all around awesome people. I’m forever grateful for the privilege of watching them grow up.
My fur babies. Violet and Bismarck. 🐈🐶
My lovely friends, old and new. I feel like we’ve fallen into this fantastic group of people. I remember when D and I had no friends in common, and now we have this big group of awesome people who love and support us. We may not have great relations with either of our extended families, but we’ve created a family out of friends.
Our lovely home. Our stability. Our health. I know some people who are struggling with absolutely awful things right now. My thoughts are with them today.
Tonight my husband told me he’s the luckiest man alive. ❤️
We started this process today. Even now we’re not even halfway done decorating it.
Our ladder wasn’t tall enough. Luckily, our neighbor, Mindy, was able to bail us out.
It’s breathtaking though. Once it’s finished, I’ll share a pic.
