Five Senses For Friday



It’s HOLIDAY TIME. To be honest, I’ve had a hard time getting in the Christmas spirit this year. Our tree is half lit because I ran out of lights… even after I took them all off and put them on again. There are no presents wrapped under the tree with care. Just a Gap bag of jammas thrown on the guest bed. No cards went out. Seriously! This is very strange for me. I freaking love the holidays and this is our first FAMILY Christmas. So this weekend I’m getting out of my slump before it’s too late. I’m drinking eggnog… probably with some booze in it (hey, i’m in a slump remember), listening to christmas carols and decorating the shit out of that big beautiful tree. Here are some things that will help. I would love suggestions from you as well. What gets your holiday juices flowing?

Sight: Christmas movies! We have a TON, like a billion. Keeping in the Murray Christmas theme, let’s watch Scrooged this weekend.

Smell: In case the tree isn’t putting off enough of those sweet fir fumes we’ll just fake it with a candle.

Sound: Oskar seemed to really like this twistmas song… or maybe it was my awesome dance moves. Ya never know.

Taste: This gingerbread looks amazing. I bet it would be really good with coffee in the morning.

Touch: Gotta be curnfy (or comfy as you probably say) to get in that winter wonderland mood. And slippers are key!

    Oh Bill Murray is the best! My husband and I were fortunate enough to be in a taxi van with him one New Years Eve, he made the whole van sing Happy New Year to the tune of “Happy Birthday to You”. It was awesome.
