Are you crazy!

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Guess I am! We did secret santa this year, well not so secret since everyone knows who is giving whom, so my secret santa asked me what i would like to receive and he gave me good tempting options. he was offering a tablet but my heart was set on a new pair of tennis shoes, so i declined and asked if i could get the tennis shoes instead. Everyone was shocked! I don't understand why, I need a new pair of tennis shoes while I have no need for a tablet since I already have a perfectly working computer.

I don't know that's just my logic, I was going to buy a new pair anyways, why not receive them instead of buying them. Besides, I would have been happy with a tablet but thats too much, I am content with a pair of shoes or scarf, or whatever they want to give me, but since they asked what I would rather have, i gave in my opinion. My co-workers think I'm crazy, they already think I am the weird one here, and this has just added the cherry on top! I say, I rather be crazy!

I guess thats what i really don't like about the holidays, I feel alot of people have lost the real sense of what the holiday really is about, so over the years I've become what my family calls "the grinch" so to show them that I still like christmas I bought a small christmas tree, and a wreath, and they are content. I am not so happy about the shopping, long lines, no parking at the mall, etc...

I went walking the other day and to my happiness there was no one on the track! All for me and I took good advantage of it. I did three miles! I know its seems like nothing but lately if I get a mile down it's a miracle. Walking is therapy for me, i get to tune out everything and every one and I get to think, really think about everything I want to do, put life in perspective.

Well, I am not sure if I will get to write anything before christmas or new years, but if I don't I wan to wish everyone a happy holidays, merry christmas and happy new years!

    You know, what you did was great. I mean it.

    Why take advantage of someone, just because they are offering you something that most people would want?

    I myself would have gone for the tennis shoes. Absolutely. There are times, when I've received a funny look, just because of what I wanted. You also get quite a bit of respect for that too. Whether they will admit it or not.

    I'm glad you got out there and walked. Far more than I have been able to do lately. I find my day goes be rather quickly since I have my youngest home. She cracks open her books and works as soon as the others are on their way to school. I of course interrupt her occasionally to do errands up town. Otherwise...

    I find I'm getting my Christmas spirit back somewhat this year. The past 18 have been rough, but this year is different.

    Anyways, I'm rambling here.

    Keep up the walking routing. Stay out of trouble. Thanks your Santa nicely. Buy yourself a new (but not expensive) outfit for walking. Keep your spirits up,

    Have a Merry Christmas.

    I'm all about shopping online and shopping early. I turn grinchy if I have to spend all my free time getting "stuff" for people.
