A long December....
Can November come back?
I miss the smell of turkey cooking. I'm most definitely going to miss the pretty orange and brown leaves. And I already miss the cotton fields.
I'm totally surprised that winter is among us. On my ride home from work tonight my thermometer in my car was flashing 35 degrees (yes, it flashes when it's below 40, how annoying, right? like I don't know its cold outside?)
So where do I go with this post?
As this little page marker flashes at me, I'm kind of staring blankly.
How do I say this.....
I'm scared? I don't want it to be 2012 already. Time is flying by too fast.
Before you know it, Andrea will be graduated from high school and she'll be off to college. I'll be graduated from college and married in no time. I'm not scared at all about being married, I'm just scared about facing the REAL WORLD as everyone calls it. Like the idea of moving out, buying my own house, furnishing my own house, paying for my car payment, cell phone bill, insurance, and the cost of living all at once scares the shit out of me (excuse my french). It just seems like it's a freight train and it's coming fast and I don't know what to do. I wish I could be putting money aside for this but all in the month of DECEMBER I have to pay for the following:
Beautiful furniture that we got a great cost. The only catch is, we have to pay for it this month.
The photographer deposit.
Christmas gifts for everyone.
Can I go back to being 4 now?
I want this to be a long December. I want the time away from school and the time with my family to be stretched out as long as possible. My sister has become pretty much my best friend and I want to spend as much time with her as possible. She's gotten so funny with age! I want to enjoy my first Christmas day with Justin and I want it to linger. That's right, it's our FIRST Christmas day together. He always volunteers to work for all the guys with families but he had it off this year and I asked him to please please not volunteer to work. I want to experience what it's like to have to split our Christmas between the two families. I think it's going to be fun. This December I want to spend chilly afternoon's cuddled up with my pups.
And you know what I think I'm going to do this December....
I'm going to reward myself and...
wait for it...
READ A BOOK!
Do you know how long it's been since I've read a book? Like purely out of enjoyment? Probably last December! I have tons sitting on my shelf that I want to read, I just don't find the time. But oh, hey, look what I've found:
That's enough ramblings from me.
But I want to hear yours...
How did you deal with becoming a "grown up" and entering what everyone calls the "real world"?
