Whatever, though! I had no time nor candy for that crap, today. I woke up in a hella good mood, and more importantly, a doing mood, eager to go-go-go! I didn't care that he was grumpy or whatever. I petted him, rubbed his legs, and and gave him a bunch of "poor baby"s, tried to cheer him up the easy way (with my boobs), but to be honest, meh, I wasn't much sympathetic in my heart. I had too much spunk and spirit, and I was focused on the stuff I wanted to get done around my apartment today, and I'm so happy that I'm ahead of myself. I've already been to the grocery store, had brunch, taste-tested the beet salad I made last night (and it's the best batch I've ever made, I'm soooo happy). The apartment isn't too horrifying, so a light cleaning should suffice enough for Derek's company later on when he comes to watch The Walking Dead and eat some dinner. I'm now going to get started on pumpkin soup, try a new roasted sweet potato, cranberry, and apple recipe that I found today. Hopefully, I'll have enough juice in me to make my avocado dip, and maybe even a chocolate cake (but, that's pushing it). And, it's before 3pm! This is good. A good day!
In other news, I've been thinking about it, lately, and I realize that I want to see my old Christmas tree back up, this year. This is kind of a big deal, as I honestly thought that I'd never be able to handle seeing it up again. I even bought a little Christmas tree 3 years ago to replace it. But, heck, no! The old tree is a grand and beautiful one with frosty tips that make it look icy and wet and shimmery, and I'm ready for it! And, only three years later? That's really very good for me. The only problem is that I never was the one who put it up nor took it down every year, and I really don't want to be the one to ever do it. The little tree I bought to replace it? Yeah, no problem, that's about as much headache as I can take. But, this beautiful honking huge tree? Nah, that's going to have to remain a guy's job. Fortunately, I asked Derek, and he said he'd help me.
I'll of course never be able to even look at the old ornaments, though, and for good reason. It'd be really kinda creepy if I ever wanted to put them up, but the tree itself? Yeah, I loved it when I bought it, and though it'll for sure be a little hurtful at first to have it up, the glory of it will outshine the pangs. I can use new/neutral ornaments and pretty holiday ribbon to decorate it, and it will be very lovely!
