I’m Going At this All Wrong

I had a total meltdown of hormones the other day. All over the fact that I am sad about Thanksgiving. I have my children this year so I shouldn’t be sad. I should be happy, right? Well family doesn’t ever really see my boys nor me so I thought it would be a great get together but that’s not how it is working out to be this year. The funny thing is that this is the first year that I will be with my boyfriend, we moved into a home we purchased in July. We started a whole new family together, meaning my kids, his kids and us. We are a new family unit and really should be thinking about our future traditions, things we want our kids to look back and remember. Maybe even instill some new holiday traditions for them to pass down with us and their children later in their adult lives.

Lee and I were talking about maybe doing something new for Thanksgiving this year, to start our own family tradition. I have so many traditions with just my kids that they are used to, such as we always go to York Beach, Maine in the Summer, we always pick and cut down our own Christmas Tree, we visit The Home of Christmas Spirit every year and the list goes on. I think it’s time for us to set some new blended family traditions that we can look back on and smile.

So while I am having a total down moment about all of the holiday fuss, I forgot that it’s not about that, it’s about who you are together with. The people who stand by you when you are down. The people who love you unconditionally and always. It’s about being together and so I am going to work on creating a new family tradition for Thanksgiving and move forward thinking happy thoughts instead of getting caught up in what can’t or won’t happen this holiday season!

Cheers to moving forward and being able to adapt to change in a more positive way!

Merry Christmas From Me to You

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas…. I received a nice pair of boots from the Mom…

And the daughter got me some coffee and slippers …. just what I needed/wanted…

Now my kids are all gone off to their Dads for the day and night to enjoy special time with their other half parent. I, however, am done with Christmas day and I think I hear my bed calling my name.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Day!

Every Movie Night I want Bridesmaids

I remember watching Bridesmaids and fully enjoying this flick. Now every time I get a moment to watch a movie I always think about what I want in the movie; comedy, sex, romance, maybe a little bit of action. I usually want just your average chick flick lately but what Bridesmaids did was put a chick flick on mans radar, because even men enjoyed watching this film.

This movie is hilarious because I can totally picture myself being the maid of honor in this movie and getting so frustrated and getting myself caught up into the whole jealous friend thing. This movie is totally awesome and must be put under the Christmas tree this holiday season!
