There Is Nothing That Makes You Feel Old Faster.....

than the holidays.

I think I've aged 20 years in the past week.  That's not even taking into consideration the pounds that I'm steadily packing on with Thanksgiving Dinner III right around the corner.  I think my scales have run away from home.  Maybe they went to live with Kate Hudson.  Now THAT would be nirvana for scales.

I woke up this morning before seven.  I can't even begin to describe the agony of me, a narcoleptic, seeing the sun rise.  Two days in a row no less.  Oh and it wasn't the boyfriend who was in the driveway yesterday morning.  It was (ahem) another boy.  We won't go there.  Not now. 

I went back to sleep eventually and woke up realizing two things.  One.  My house is a wreck.  Two.  There's a Christmas tree and decorations in the attic and they're yelling at me.  

"Come geeeeet me!  I want to plaaaaaay."

I swear, that's what they're saying.  I hate them.  I might leave them up there until next year just to punish them for tormenting me.  I've got a whole year of guilt trips planned, I didn't need their help.

When we bought our living room furniture, I made the mistake of thinking my room is bigger than it really is.  Now I've got to figure out where to stash a tree so that I can still walk through the room.  Plus, I've got kitten cats this year.  Ones who have never seen a Christmas tree.  Four of them.  Little monsters.  Plus the thirty pounder that's been there done that and left a nest in the middle of the tree last year so she can easily find her favorite place to sleep this year.

I'm thinking it's going to be an interesting week.

But hey, at least I don't have a scale to mock me.  Pretty sure my skinny jeans will do that just fine.


  1. ugh i've had brother sister kittens for a Christmas once... no tinsel (otherwise you'll be pulling it out of their butts weeks past Christmas and throughout), start the lights and decor at LEAST a foot from the bottom... but even after all that they will still get inside and climb the damn thing! so keep your fav decorations off the tree, just in case.

  2. Aw, but where's the fun in that! I'm picturing them Tarzan swinging from the angel's skirt, so it'll be interesting to say the least! Oh and it's good for getting that whistling thing going out of my husband's ears which is always good for a laugh! :)


Make a Mama Kitty happy today! Say hi!
