‘Twas the night before Christmas in the Single Mom’s House.
Benjamin opened his first present this morning, a gigantic Mickey Mouse doll. I found it at the thrift store so I figured – why not? After jumping up and down like a maniac he told me to turn it on. Upon discovering that Mickey did not talk he threw him down the basement stairs.
And that my friends, is what Christmas is all about.
Hopes and dreams for a talking Mickey Mouse, only to be dashed by the hard reality that he’s just stuffed with fluff. I’m not sure when we’ll open the rest of his presents, but I hope they’re better received. We could do something generous like take all of his old toys to the Salvation Army but the flu has completely side swiped us. This is Day 4. I’m waiting to see if he pukes up his breakfast, and if not — we are going to brave the voyage to Grandma’s house.
He’ll be spending Christmas Day with his father and as for me, I’ll hopefully be alone in a coffee shop or a bar in my home town all day long – just relaxing and nursing my cold with hot tea and biscuits. I can’t thank you all enough for reading my blog, for commenting and for sending me all of your positive thoughts.
Without you I would be a nutcase right now. Seriously.
So I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. And let’s not dwell on the fact that we’re single. Just think of all of the miserably married couples – the couples we used to be – they’re probably fighting right now, over the kids Christmas presents or who to invite to Christmas dinner.
If you don’t believe me, watch this video – it will may make you happy to be single and it’s pretty funny too.
And in all cheesy Christmas seriousness, this is my favorite Christmas movie moment:
Wish I could have all of you over for Christmas party or something… take care, don’t let the ex-bugs bite.
