I 'd much rater leave a message than talk to someone on the phone. Why? Who knows.
Maybe because I can monitor my words before I blurt them out.
But then again, sometimes after I leave a message, I sit and wonder if I said something stupid and it's just waiting there behind the flashing red light for someone to press Play.
I don't generally like to answer the phone either.
I suppose this is all somehow related to my social anxiety.
Which is weird, because I generally do like people.
Just not too close to me, I guess.
Which may explain why I consider fictional characters among my best friends.
Not to mention my love of Lifetime Movies.
I mean, those poor women need a good friend.
They are always thrust into terrible situations and seem to only have that one friend.
You know, the one who usually ends up getting killed off in the first hour.
I cannot remember anything. Seriously.
If I didn't have kids to remind me what to do next, I'd be walking around in a circle all day,
Then there is this.
My obsessive love of all things Christmas.
As much as I am enjoying spring, and all that has to offer,
I am missing and looking forward to the time when it is socially acceptable to bring out the Christmas music and decorations!
Halloween will always be first in my heart.
I absolutely love thinking about it and preparing for it in my mind long before I pull out the first orange and black storage tub.
Maybe it is the time of year, maybe it is the cute ghosts, witches, and pumpkins everywhere, maybe it is the start of all things pumpkin, or maybe it is my love of scary...not gory...movies.
Just the thought of dark evenings inside, with the wind howling and leaves blowing outside, old Frankenstein movies on TV, and pumpkin spice lattes in hand makes my heart happy.
The candy in cute wrappers doesn't hurt either.
Ok, that's enough for now.
Thanks for hanging in there!
I'm always glad you do. : )
Pinterest for the images...as always.
