December had more activities than it had days to do them. I’m pretty sure I hit the wall a few days ago after the last present was unwrapped. I don’t know about you but I can’t put two sentences together or make any decisions this week to save my life. I’m telling you this now just in case my “5 Things I learned” seems a bit thin. I know I learned something in December. But, this is all I remember. Hopefully, a good nap or two and the last Christmas Buckeye will bring the MOJO back.
1. It is OK to change your mind on some things.
I broke up with my skinny jeans last year and I felt really good about that decision.
This month,I tried on a new pair and my husband said, “Buy them.” When they went on sale 2 days later, I knew it was a sign. My boots are perfectly happy once again to be paired with the ever so trendy Lolita Skinny Jeans from Lucky Brand. I think I am, too.
2. Essie Nail polish is a keeper.
It goes on so glossy smooth. Have you used it? What is your favorite color? I’m wearing a bright red called forever yummy right this very minute. Love it.
3. My husband is a much better present buyer than I am.
I bought him a sweatshirt for Christmas. He bought me new dishes to replace our 20 year old set of Longaberger. I may have made up for it when I made him blackberry pie with my new pie plate for Christmas dinner.
4. You never forget how to ice skate.
I took my girls skating for the first time this month. 3/4 of them had never been on skates. I’m blaming this on living in Florida. Shockingly, I was the only one to really fall in grand fashion. The falling was not as bad as the getting up. I needed instructions from the skating attendant. Yes, I did.
The falling hurt way worse later in the week because when you are 42 and not 22 things hurt longer when you fall on them. This reminds me, my kids re-made Taylor Swift’s song and sang it all week – “Feeling 42″. No mercy here friends.
5. 4,000 candles and Silent Night moves me soul deep.
The crazy rush of December gave way to lights held high in worship for the baby born in Bethlehem. He came for the weary ones. He came to shine light in the darkness. He came for me and you.
All is calm. All is bright.
And it gets me every time.
