So, my orgy of Holiday Happiness has officially ended. I try not to get too bummed when it’s over, but I can’t help but feel twinges of suckitude when I have to take down my zillions of Christmas decorations (which I did yesterday…le sigh. :()
But, luckily Seasame Street taught me a long time ago to keep Christmas with me, all through the year (and how to sign that setiment, too! :)). I don’t think I’d be able to cope as well with my holiday withdrawawals without this lil ditty…I literally start singing it from about noon Christmas Day until Super Bowl time (the next big upcoming holiday ;)). Thanks for another valuable life lesson, my Sesame Street friends. Without you it’d be much harder to throw out my beautiful holiday wreath every year (I’ll miss you, Fluffy :(), and I might not be aware that C is for Cookie, and that it is indeed good enough for me. (I shudder to even imagine what a world like that might be like… ;)).
I hope everyone had a very beautiful holiday season, and a bright/happy/festive start to the new year. I have a lot of stories I want to share with you about some amazing people who are busy doing absolutely awesome things to start kicking 2014 square in the arse, but I’m hopped up on Nyquil at the moment and can barely comprehend what I’m writing. As much as I’d love to share their stories with you right now, I figured to (attempt to) do justice to all these wonderful folks I’m going to have to wait a few days til my head is (relatively ;)) unfoggy. In the meantime, I shall post these awesome pics a very sweet Tumblr buddy took the time to create and email me for your viewing amusement. If I didn’t know better, I’d almost believe I actually did some of these shoots (which I probably should :)). Excellent job, good sir. I don’t think I’ve ever looked more badass. Thanks again!
On a less frivolous note, my son’s injuries were actually a bit more serious than I’d originally let on. I just didn’t want to get all dramatic and wrapped up in my own shizzle when everyone was supposed to be all festive and happy. Fortunately, though, he’s doing much better now, and recovering very quickly. (Yay, and thanks to everyone who asked about him…Sorry if I kinda avoided your questions, but I didn’t really want to say much til I knew all was truly well. :))
Anyhoo, all this unexpected medical drama put me way behind with getting out my Holiday Heroes care packages, and for that I sincerely apologize (again ;)). I will definitely get it all done as soon as I possibly can, and send along some special extras to try and make it up to you all. I really want you guys to know how much I appreciate all you did to send out holiday luv to these kids. You completely blew my lil’ pea brain with your generosity, and I am unbelievably grateful for all your acts of kindness and selflessness. xoxoxo
I will update you with my tales of adventure and gratitude again in a few days, but for now I shall leave you with this amazing vid as I slip into a fever-induced coma. It’s a shout out to the total badassery of the Ohio State Marching Band, for those who aren’t familiar with their complete and utter awesomeness. (I figured they might be in need of a lil love after Clemson kicked their team’s ass. ;)) #GOTIGERS
Peace, love, and #TigerPride,
Me (Too sick to attempt to be creative right now… ;)) xoxo
PS- Just started replying to all the comments I’ve missed here over the past few weeks and came across this, so I figured I’d post it here with the other WW art. Thank you so much for this, Sliver…You are SOOOO talented!! It’s insanely gorgeous!!!!
And, just since we’re on this artsy theme, here’s one more drawing someone was kind enough to send me. Thank you very, very much Egon (I’ll tell ‘em your whole awesome story as soon as I’m feeling better :)). xoxoxo
