I Need to Get Back Here

And with original content ...

This space had become a repository for TMI Tuesdays and Sunday Stealings. Although those aren't necessarily bad things, they weren't exactly great things either, and I lost interest.

How many times have I said that writing is therapeutic for me, yet I might as well have just been regurgitating nonsense these past few months.

Yes, there will be a TMI Tuesday tomorrow, but I am going to work on original content this year. I have an opportunity to grow and thrive and that's not going to happen just regurgitating.

Eeeuuuuwwww - that's kind of an ugly visual

TMI Tuesday | Happy Holiday Season!

(via TMI Tuesday Blog)

1. Are you celebrating or have you celebrated any holidays this December 2018?
I have not - and will not - celebrate and holidays this December 2018. Cam is in Utah spending the holiday with his girl friend's family so there really isn't anyone to celebrate with/for. We did all go to a steakhouse dinner (me, my mom, Cam, and his girlfriend) before the kids left, but it wasn't like a Christmas. 
2. Describe your typical holiday celebration.
That's kind of funny right there! I haven't had a "typical" holiday celebration since I was probably 16? That's 38-years ago for anyone counting. I have spent the holidays in so many different situations - nothing is typical and seldom s there an actual celebration.

3. Now tell us how you really would like to spend your holiday season.
I'd like to spend my holiday season not alone. Maybe with an actual tree in the house with wrapped gifts under it. Maybe even a stocking filled with goofy little things. Just not alone.
4. This time of year broadcast TV is filled with Christmas movies. What is your favorite Christmas movie?
I actually watched my favorite Christmas movie yesterday - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I also watched Polar Express for the first time ever. I don't know ... sappy holiday movies make me feel ickier when I'm spending the holiday alone, so I tend to stay with the silly ones.
5. Does your place of work do a gift exchange or secret santa? Do you participate? What gift did you buy to giveaway this year? What gift did you get?
One of the downsides to working exclusively remotely is that there aren't any holiday work parties - not work potlucks - no Secret Santa.
Bonus: Have you been naughty or nice?
Naughty ... always naughty ... but in the nicest way! 😈
