Regrettably can’t claim that one for myself – that’s a Die Hard joke from Brooklyn 9-9, a snappy – but wholly inaccurate – rejoinder uttered by devoted foodie weirdo, Charles Boyle, after he heroically saves his friends from a Christmas Eve robbery.
Ah, so here we are, on the eve that Nakatomi Tower is descended upon by Alan Rickman and his band of well mannered, ballet-dancing terrorists (true story – one of the Gunters, the guy with the long, white blonde hair, was a ballet dancer first, stuntman second.) Or it’s simply Christmas Eve, if you’re looking for a slightly more traditional interpretation of the season. 😉
Okay, so it’s been nearly a month since I touched fingertips to keyboard, and you may be curious as to where the hell I’ve been. I’ve certainly wondered a time or two myself!
Well, we moved! From our two-bedroom condo to a four-bedroom house. You’re right if you think we’ve possibly lost our minds – sometimes I think we certainly have! Here’s a pic of the new homestead:
So as of late, my life has been something of an insane goat rodeo of packing and moving and schlepping, and then it was immediately CHRISTMAS!!! So thank goodness I had my priorities wildly in order, and had this white artificial tree set up and all aglow in our new family room the day after we had officially moved in. Bed not delivered, you say? Pfft, who needs a bed when you’ve got a Christmas tree?!
I even managed to squeeze in the first bit of nail art I’ve done in well over a month. Such wild productivity! Actually, I should cut myself some friggin’ slack – life has somehow been both a sprint AND a slog for about two solid months now, and I’m ready for a bit of holiday downtime.
I have so much more I want to share with you about the sale of our condo, the purchase of this house, our move and our lives, but now is not the time. Now it’s time to get our holiday on, and bask in the love of our nearest and dearest, and oh dear lord, run out to the mall RIGHT FRIGGIN’ NOW! because the shops close in five hours! Merry Christmas, and happiest of holidays, peeps. See you on the other side. 🙂
