It's three days after Christmas, and the tingle of holiday fever is in the air!
This is my between the holidays update, or a folllow up to "Still Decorating My Empty Nest," the post I wrote before Christmas Day. The one about polishing every twig in my empty nest awaiting my son's arrival?
Well, I was dusting my last twig when he opened the door and said,
"Oh, come on Mom, it's just me."
We think we know our children, but they know us better, maybe better than we know ourselves. In any event, my empty nest, is empty once again, that is with the exception of Simon, my cat, who ate most of our Christmas Turkey.
Now, he looks like he's carrying a bowling ball in his stomach. It's ridiculous, when my son left the room he begged me for turkey and vice-versa, and now, Mr. "I haven't had any turkey" is paying the price.
Simon moaned and groaned around the Christmas tree as if he were a stray on the street, while both of us were giving him half our plates. Then, we found pieces of turkey stashed under the tree, in his bed, under MY bed and in his bowl. Let's just say our little family had a nice Christmas Day and Simon didn't want it to end.
Simon is all about the moment, he doesn't care about New Year's Day and he doesn't like ham. He wants to know if it's still Christmas and where are the snowmen?
Perhaps, he thinks Snowmen bring turkey, but the closest we'll get to a snowman in south Louisiana is the freezer in the grocery store.
And, once again, my refrigerators empty.
I hope you had a spectacular Christmas Day, blessed with everything you hoped for-
Thank you for visiting A Nice Place In The Sun.
And remember, I love and appreciate all comments, so please let me know you've stopped by before I melt. (Only kidding)
