I’ll be hanging out by myself on New Year’s Eve this year. It’s not that big of a deal, I hang out by myself a lot. Luckily, I like me.
Normally, I’m with my family for the holiday but we are coming home early this year and my kids will be at their Dads for New Years. This means that I’m available for any rockin’ parties that are happening but I have a feeling that I’ll most likely spend the evening home. I think I’ll take a bubble bath and order in Chinese. Then I’ll snuggle up in a cozy blankie and enjoy some chick flick of my choosing. Perhaps I’ll have a cocktail to round out the evening.
It’s not my first New Years Eve alone and I’m sure it won’t be my last. But I’m OK with it.
I have one child who still believes in Santa. And once she no longer believes, Christmas will be a little different. Slightly less magical.
But this year is not that year. This year I have written her a letter from Santa regarding some Littlest Pet Shop toys that I got second-hand. These toys are obviously not new but still have many years of life left in them. Someone was practically giving them away so I had to take them. However, I knew that I couldn’t wrap them up like the other gifts so I decided to do something a little fun.
I hope this letter helps to create a special memory this year. Christmas is about creating magic and my heart wishes for excited laughter and smiles, which sounds magical to me.
