My motivation for writing on the bloggy always goes down a bit this time of year, because I feel like people probably aren’t reading. What with work holidays, travelling, and the like. Do I know this from my blog stats, you ask? Do I even look at my blog stats anymore? Well, that’s beside the point, is what I say. Who needs facts when my feelings tell me I can slack off? Thanks, feelings!
You know how I am always saying that when it comes to the holidays, I don’t really understand what all the fuss is about? Well, during pretty much my entire adult working life, I have never taken any days off around the holidays, and this year I did. Newsflash, everyone! Not having to work for a few extra days totally makes holiday time so exciting! NOW I GET IT. See, sometimes I see the dots, but I don’t always connect the dots.
I had four days off in a row this week, and it was like a relaxation bonanza going on around here. There was one day when I didn’t even crack my door open to leave my house but at all. I know! Crazyballs!
On Friday as I was leaving work, Nordic Boy called to tell me that our car crapped out and so we had it towed and waited with bated breath to hear back that it wouldn’t cost five zillion dollars to fix. We got it back yesterday and it was only 2 zillion dollars, so I guess our wishing should have been more specific. The time that wasn’t spent wasted on highballing our wishes was pretty good. Nordic Boy cooked up a ton of awesome food, which I helped with, and it was all so delicious, and I loved it, and it was fun to make together, but honestly I am all cooked out for probably the rest of my life.
Other than that I didn’t do one productive thing at all. Well, we paid bills and cleaned the house and did laundry and that type of thing, but that doesn’t count. Other than that we watched movies and read books and just were complete and total shut ins. Nordic Boy didn’t even work on the house. I know, WUT. Other than some time spent with Delium, we kicked it hermit style and it was awesome.
I hope that you had a great holiday, if in fact you celebrate that sort of thing. If you don’t do the holidays, at least take a lesson from me. Take some days off if you can. That’s the kind of holiday magic anyone can get behind.
