You Have To Cook A Fucking Meat

I'm just digging in at this point, knowing that I will get through it all, this ridiculous season of ridiculousness. Lily and I were talking the other day and she said that she was starting to not enjoy Christmas much at all.
"Well, I said, "You're the mother and it's up to you to do most of the shopping and wrapping and decorating and cooking and cleaning and while you're doing all of this, you're supposed to MAKE IT MAGICAL!"
"Yeah," she sighed. "You're right."

Owen wanted to go shopping with his mom and Maggie and me and so we allowed as how that would be okay and Costco was fine. No Raisin Bran sampling. We mostly got things for the Christmas Eve gathering which will be a lot of party food. 
"Are we done?" Lily asked at one point. 
"If we check out, we sure will be," I said. 
And so it was. 

And then Owen wanted to go to the Indian buffet and we allowed as how that would be fine too so we went and ate spicy delicious Indian food and Owen ate what he always eats there which is about twelve plates of butter chicken with the sauce and naan to dip into the sauce. He knows what he likes. After that we went to Big Lots to get a few things and here's what Maggie looked like in her new dress I made her.




She was fascinated by the jingle bell necklaces so of course Mer bought her one. I put it on her and she said, "Tank-you, Mer," as sweet as can be. 

Then I took the Hartmanns back home and I came home and unloaded the car and shuffled laundry and made up the bed with clean sheets and did a little ironing and now I've made Mr. Moon a Meyer's lemon meringue pie and I think I'm going to heat up last night's leftovers because I'm just fucking tired as hell. 

So here's one of my very favorite Christmas videos and it too, is a leftover from 2015 but like delicious cauliflower casserole it bears repeating. 



Watch it. It will make you feel better. I promise you with all of my heart. I put my hand on my copy of Sticky Fingers and swear to you.
Even if I have posted this before (and it is possible) and you have watched it before, watch it again.
Or don't.
Whatever.

Love you with all of the Christmas magic in my heart...Ms. Moon

  4. Magnolia's dress (your fabulous creation) is beautiful and so perfect for her! And a Meyer lemon pie? Too bad you are 2000 miles away because I would love to have a slice with you! Love and warmth for Christmas to you and Mr Moon both, and to your entire family. You are a beautiful slice of my day every day and I thank you for that. You are one of my many wonderful blessings

  8. That dress is divine! And she's such a doll baby wearing it.
    Love the video too! I always feel like such a scrooge this time of year. Nice to know I am not the only one.

  11. Loved the video, and can relate. Our son and his three teen-agers arrived to our little one-bedroom Florida get-away last night. So far, the handle on the toilet has broken, and a trip to Ace Hardware took care of it, the window A/C on the lanai broke, and no Lowe's, Home Depot, or even the Wal-Mart have any in stock. Top that off with one teenager in my recliner, another in hubby's, and two people sprawled out on the couch with the TV too loud and the glow of four phones lighting up the room so I can see four faces buried in them, and Ima Bout to Pop a Cap! Oh, and Merry Christmas.....
