Translation – I’m not there (Yet?!?!)
Last week after two back to back trips to Orlando – One to Walk on Fire At a Tony Robbins seminar (that was beyond exhilarating!) Then three days later back there for the National Association of Realtors conference for 5 days. At the end of the conference I agreed to meet an old girlfriend at the mall for lunch before making the 3 hour trek back to Fort Lauderdale.
I walked into the mall and was confronted by (what looked like to me) a 150 foot BLUE and WHITE Christmas Tree!
I just stood there dumbfounded as I looked up at this monstrosity.
The first thing that went through my mind (and I am not kidding) was – What Day Is It? What Month is It?
How did I get so lost, that I could not remember what time of year it was?
I was happy, my business was enjoyably busy and I’m pretty sure the majority of my family was doing well.
Three hours later I am at pumping gas at a station and they are playing Christmas music. Now I am MAD!
When did Christmas COME BEFORE Thanksgiving?!?!?!
I admit that I was completely out of touch with what time of year it was, but I prefer my holiday celebrations in order!
Once home, I saw all of the Thanksgiving decorations up, ready for the big Family Dinner. I opened the fridge and saw 5 pounds of green beans and side dishes on the breakfast table ready to be polished.
At that point I relented and said, whether I am ready or not, there will be a celebration (at least at home-I get them in order).
I guess I should go get my comfy slippers. It takes a long time to stand and snap 5 pounds of beans for the big dinner!
I do enjoy these family traditions, even when I am not ready.
