Pick me, choose me, love me

Christmas is over.  The kids are nestled all snug in their beds with visions of....okay I was going to try and write a cutesy thing, but I'm over it just like Christmas.  

It was good.  It was a long day--a day much like daylight savings time where you feel like it should be later than it is and you think "really we have six more hours until bedtime?" But it was good.

Some of the kids were very happy with the gifts Santa brought them.  
Baby Wade had a very Toy Story Christmas and he was in heaven.

One of them was a little disappointed and we couldn't blame it on Santa anymore.  He knows we are the lame parents that didn't buy him an iphone.  But c'mon, an iphone?  He is in fourth grade, it was never going to happen.

I was happy with my gifts the kids bought me at The Dollar General, for real.  I got a "fridge de-oderizer" and Lucy got me a wine glass.  Actually it is a wine goblet and I love it. 
I am drinking out of my fab new goblet as I type.
Is it bad that I got a wine goblet from my second grader?

Really for all my anxiety and melancholiness, Christmas eve and day went very smoothly.  I felt very grateful for my messy-haired, sloppy, sweet kids.  I felt grateful for my husband because he is pretty amazing.

And I want to thank each of you that reads this here wee little blog.  And thank you to the readers that keep coming back to read.

There are a lot of blogs out there.  Like I've said before, there are blogs that teach you how to craft or how to wow your guests at your next party.  There are blogs that teach you to cook.  There are blogs that teach you how to decorate a room or how to dress cooler.  But as you readers know, you will learn to do nothing from my blog.  

Except maybe, just maybe, you will feel a little bit saner. A little bit better about yourself. Or maybe, just maybe, you are like me (neurotic, anxious, a little raunchy, borderline depressed, hopeful, passionate, narcissistic, self-loathing, self-inflated, nutty, funny, happy), not perfect.  And now you feel less alone.

I've always been a writer--in my past working life in marketing and newspapers--but also just always.  A lot of times it was the only way I could express myself.  Even when I was very young.
Circa 1982. Age 7.
I've always been a little overdramatic too.

My whole point is thank you!  And since I am feeling a little post-Christmas neediness, I was wondering, er, um...this is awkward.  I was kinda hoping you might just, well, in the words of any neurotic's pop culture goddess Meredith Grey, "pick me, choose me, love me."

She says it better than me...
