Not an order…a suggestion. Since I’ve been all up in my own head the first 2.5 weeks of November, I’m leading the charge in calming down.
Having said that, I was super duper grumpy this morning. I’m sure it had nothing to do with being at da gym by 5 this morning. Seriously, it really didn’t because I was awake anyway and I felt great after 30 minutes on the treadmill and 15 minutes of good stretching. And I can totally feel it.
Nope, not the gym. Couldn’t have anything to do with the 45 people coming to my house Thursday for dinner. Okay, I am exaggerating a tiny bit. It’s only 18 or so and honestly, it isn’t that at all because I am so psyched that The Littles arrive tomorrow for dinner and birthday celebrations (Russell turns fifty…ummmm…well he doesn’t want to talk about which number follows the fifty) and that means pineapple upside down cake with enough candles to light up the northern hemisphere. Birthday boy’s family (after 35+ years, why are they still “Russell’s family?” they are totally “our family”) start arriving Wednesday, but no one has figured out exactly when and for this OCD, detail girl, I’m sure that’s not bothering me at all. Is it, Courtenay?
Honestly, I’m not sure what got into me today. Thankfully, I’m over it this afternoon, but I was snarky for a bit and then had to pull it together. So there you go…I had to pull it together. And I did. I didn’t run with it. Although, to be honest at one point I did tell my spousal unit to stop talking to me because I was gonna blow. His response? “Bring. It.” And then he laughed like a kid, and I had to laugh also. All I could think of was this. He even called me a couple hours later to see how I was doing (my husband, not Keanu Reeves, although how cool would that be?) And I even went to Target. I mean if a trip to Tarjay doesn’t cheer a girl up…I think that’s when I knew this was going to be a get over yourself lady and pull your act together kind of thing. And it’s been all uphill since.
Take a minute to tell me your top five Thanksgiving meal must-haves over on my facebook page. That is one thing I know cheered me up…reading everyone’s food list.
Off to meet my men and head to Wegman’s…I am determined to be cheery, chatty, and chipper at Weggies…even though it is going to be a nightmare.
Happy Monday-before-Thanksgiving and see Y’all tomorrow.
