Solo, ME Newsletter, Vol. 2, Issue 47
Yes, it’s true. I’m starting my 2009 holiday season with a personal solo vacation.
It takes a lot to step away from tradition, but I’ve decided to start my own tradition.
Yes, I love my family and friends.
Yes, I’m looking forward to spending time with family and friends during the 2009 holiday season.
But... No - not this Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It is also a four day break which I am so rarely treated to.
I spend my earned vacation hours doing what I love – mission work. Along that line, I guess you could say I’ll be spending the two-day Thanksgiving freedom-from-work break indulging a personal solo mission.
For two days, I will not clean, or pay bills, or do anything boringly necessary to function.
For two days, I will sleep late, wrap Christmas presents already purchased, and snuggle with Miss Fred the misread cat.
I am especially looking forward to watching the last 5 remaining dvr episodes from last year’s season of House, and hopefully catching up on dvr's for the current season, too.
For two days, I’ll relish the quiet, and take stock of my accomplishments this year.
Perhaps, I'll meet up with Miss Clairol since she’s the only one who can turn my age-revealing sparklies a little less sparkly, and move them more towards youthful, perky highlights.
Hopefully, I’ll come up with a smashing design for holiday cards, as well.
Good grief – so much for doing nothing!
I’ve created a list, and therefore I must achieve!
Have a wonderful, blessed and safe Thanksgiving.
In everything, give thanks. 1 Thess. 5:18
