Welcome to the December edition of The Redhots!
Jess and I are the RedHots – a team of RedHot women who interview, review and report the HOTTEST news!
Er, but we’re not to so REDHOT this month. We’ve been bit by the holiday bug! And not in a good way.
So, since I’m not so “redhot” this month…I’m more pink-ish.
Yes, my declaration that I would no longer live by numbers but by colors instead, specifically PINK this year, fits quite well.
In other words, I’m a pale version of a REDHOT this month.
During this crazy month, I’ve been absent from my usual virtual hang-outs. The plan was to enjoy a relaxing holiday season. Instead, December became:
The Richards’ Crazy Holiday
Gift baskets to assemble and toys to buy,
Wrapping and baking and card writing – oh my!
Birthdays galore, ear infections, and flu.
Don’t forget the dreaded ‘pink’ eye, boo-hoo!
Out-of-town family and turkey that’s brined,
Too much sugar and not enough time.
Traveling in snowstorms, skidding left and right,
Kids in the backseat screaming with delight.
Grandma’s in the front seat about to lose her mind!
Home safe and sound in weather so foul,
Cats greet us with a long soulful yowl.
The grandkids are tucked away safe in their beds,
While thoughts of escaping to a deserted island dance in the grandparent’s heads.
No gadgets, no noise, no kids, no toys,
Nah! We’d miss our girls and boys!
As crazy, stressful or noisy a holiday month can be, we wouldn’t give it up for all the quiet in the world! However, we are tempted to spend the rest of the year on an island – technology-free – where the only sounds are of the waves hitting the beach and the slurping of our tropical cocktails!
So you’ve heard my tale of the Christmas Holiday. You can read Jess’ here!
Now it’s your turn! Tell us YOUR holiday story! We’d love to hear how your December evolved–say it in a poem, a song or a riddle! Any way you want it! Thanks for sharing ’cause now we don’t feel so alone in our craziness!
