Thanksgiving kinda snuck up behind me, tapped me on the shoulder and screamed "boo!" in my ear. Tomorrow I've got a bedroom to clean, pies to bake, kids to watch, and presents to make... "I'm swamped!"
And then Christmas... only one month till Christmas Eve eve! How did this year slip by so fast? I'm kinda sad... as a kid, everything seemed to take ten years to happen. Christmas Eve night was a year long, and it felt like it would never end.
Now, it seems like everything just goes by too fast! Every day zips by, and then it's gone. Everyone grows up too fast around me.
And Christmas. I love how steady it is. Each year different, and yet the traditions are always the same. This year is my last year with those traditions... next year I will be starting new Christmas traditions with my now-fiance, then-husband.
Maybe we will try to hold onto old traditions with all our might. Maybe we will create new traditions no-one has ever heard of before. Maybe we will just be boring and sit around a pathetic tree just the two of us and open the presents we got each other.
In any case, this really is my favorite time of the year, since I get to do one of my favorite things... bake desserts and give people presents!
