Pre-Holiday Plans: No Bah-Humbug for Me
I'm in a bit of a funk tonight. I have an impromptu showing first thing this morning and I'm leaving to go out of town for a wedding that takes place tonight.
It's 12:24 a.m. and I'm a little sad that I'll be saying goodbye to my college-age daughter a day early and I still need to write two blog posts and prepare paperwork for my showing.
Everything got messed up because this buyer made arrangements to travel here to see a home without contacting me before scheduling a flight and it's put me in a foul mood.
On top of that, we had hoped to travel to Denver over the Christmas break but now that isn't going to work out either. Flights have gone up too much for all of us to fly there. All-in-all probably not a good time to write about my pre-holiday plans because I'm not sure much of anything exciting is going to be happening.
The good news is both my kids will be home from college for their winter break. I plan on enjoying every minute because my daughter will be going to Vienna her second semester so there will be a long separation during the Spring. Fortunately, my son attends school in Nashville so he's just 30 minutes away if I need a kid fix.
So my plans for the holiday--to take some much needed time off work and just enjoy Tom and the kids. Doing our favorite things: eating, watching movies and sleeping. I'm looking forward to nights in front of the fireplace spending time with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye or Donna Reed and Jimmy Stewart. Doesn't sound very glamourous but some of our best family memories together have taken place watching these old movies.
As a matter of fact, just thinking about it has already brightened by mood. No bah-humbug for me. I'm not going to let anyone or anything ruin what I know is going to be a great holiday season.
