It’s taken me a while to embrace my inner procrastinator and slowly I realized that driving myself crazy going against that is no way to be. Instead of bemoaning the fact that I am not a person making lists and checking them twice, I will accept that I am a hot mess and relax on my sofa with a pile of yarn and a cuppa while wielding the remote like a magician works her wand.
My not so secret love of Will Ferrell’s Elf is revealed every year with repeat viewings of this movie. I share it with the library kids and replay it at home every chance I get. I was not really a fan of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation until I did the play with Colonial Playhouse but after hearing many references to the Griswolds’s vacation antics, I had to see what the hubbub was all about.
I was happily surprised!
It was easy enough to order the movies using my remote to watch when I wanted and rewarding to get laughs as I lost myself to silliness. The Bee, however, has decided that she is not feeling the holidays and wanted to revisit a galaxy far, far away. So repeated viewings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been our other movie night watch. Rey, Finn, Poe, and the gang are in order for vegging out and munching on home made goods.
In the back of my mind I feel like this could be the start of a new tradition of Christmas Chill but I may need to do more research before they will fully embrace the couch side (see what I did there?).
All is not lost in a cloud of bah humbugness. My love has started sharing classic Trek and Captain Kirk, while still second to Picard, isn’t quite so bad. Watching the old show is fun while we make fun of the campiness and wonder what if we were space travelers.
Most of all, we are able to spend time together. With our busy schedules it’s been a delight being able to have downtime and I can escape to galaxies far away or a magical holiday with my family.
Happy Holidays from us to you!
