This is what the kids and I did tonight…..IMG_0371

I know that I am griping constantly about Thanksgiving being forgotten, but my real gripe is that the stores are opening on this day. That’s really when I became an advocate for the holiday.

My tradition is to have the tree up before my birthday. There is no commercial motivation behind this….I just like to look at the lights. I will admit that when it is just me, I will unplug that cookie monster.

It’s a good little tree, I have been using it the last thirteen years and I’m not sure how many years my mom had it.  I get tempted occasionally when there is a really good sale to buy a pre lit one but I can’t bring myself to do it….there is nothing wrong it and it doesn’t take that long to put the lights on.

The girl is trying to push the fairies to the back of the tree and her super heroes to the front….I could be having worse struggles there I know.IMG_0373

Every birthday this subject comes up……..and how weird is this……my ex husband is 46 and 4+6=10 , the boy is 19  1+9=10. Tomorrow I will be 44 and 4+4=8, the girl is 17 1+7=8. I always thought is was weird and I’m not sure what year it started syncing but as long as I remember it always matched up. I don’t know a thing about numerology, but I noticed this……Zia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.

    Prelit trees suck. Invariably the next year you pull it out, there will be two rows of branches that have gone dark and no matter how hard you try and how many things you attempt, it never lights up again and stringing regular lights to fill the gap never looks quite right.

    Long time ago I wrote a short story about numerology. I’ll have to do a post on it.
