but i'm kind of sick of seeing them. this holiday extravaganza has lasted about three days too long. yesterday was the girlchild's birthday, which was fun (she got two pairs of boots! which made the kid super happy). we had dinner out with my mom and niece, spent the day goofing off and making a tiny layer cake. today we have thanksgiving over at D's folks house. i really want to call out sick to it, not because i don't like them (i love them!) but because OMG how much turkey can a family eat?
i also miss my pop. i have a sneaky suspicion that holidays might make me slightly grumpy for a few years, especially if they are nice and drawn-out and give me more opportunities to think about him.
the only thing keeping me perky and smiling out in public is a little pee-wee herman. go watch the christmas special and feel the holiday spirit suffuse you with goodness. or something. it might help to have a cocktail as well.
