Monday Musings

I love New Girl and have been incessantly watching it lately. I've already watched the whole series like 4 times but I can't help from watching it all over again. I can't wait for the new season in January!

Oh and speaking of New Girl, the only thing that bothers me is that Nick supposedly passes the bar exam even though he only went to three semesters of law school, so that means he only finished half of law school. You cannot take the bar exam without a law degree, so yea, he couldn't have passed the test because he wouldn't have been allowed to take it. Rant over. Passing the bar exam wasn't a cake walk.

On another note, I am having trouble getting into the Christmas spirit. We put up all of our decorations (minus the tree and lights) Thanksgiving weekend, and Brian put up our outdoor lights last night (I really wanted 3 of those star shower laser light things but they are sold out everywhere, GRRRR!). I've watched every single Christmas movie, and like 15 Hallmark Christmas movies (this post makes me seem like all I do is watch TV hahaha), plus I did all my shopping, and I still can't get in the spirit! I've even been reading Christmas books!

I think it's partly because the Northeast has had a super warm start to winter because of el nino, and the high temps have been in the freaking high 40s to low 50s! That is way too warm for me to get in the Christmas spirit, Did I mention it HASN'T EVEN SNOWED YET?! I feel like I live in Florida or something! Maybe getting our Christmas tree today will help with the Christmas spirit...

I also think I'm having trouble getting in the spirit because I've been pretty sicky lately, and I also have to get my third surgery in a year in a half just 3 days before Christmas! Yup, I'm getting ankle reconstruction surgery with bone/tissue grafts and the works, so I will be hopped up on painkillers and wearing a hard cast up to my knee on Christmas morning (actually for 6 weeks).

So that's fun... keep your fingers crossed it will be successful and not super painful and that when it's all said and done I'll be able to walk and exercise normally again and lose some weight! Hey, at least I get to use one of these... no, I'm not kidding.

Steerable SW-500

Well that was a Debbie Downer post, but don't worry, I have some lovely wedding reception pictures for you on Wednesday!

  1. Lol, Leo said he sympathizes with the cast. I think that sounds like great Christmas weather! We are getting our tree today, too! I hope it puts you in the Christmas spirit :)

  2. I hear ya girl!!! I was Christmas shopping yesterday and I thought I was going to melt...I peeled off my scarf, my cardigan, my coat..It was so bizarre. I've been having trouble getting into the spirit too. Maybe we a 24 hour Christmas movie marathon to zap us into it! lol. I was sick last week too with a sinus infection so it was bah humbug.

    I hope everything goes okay with your upcoming surgery and the Christmas spirit does light up your day even if it's just a little bit! =)

  3. Oh I forgot to mention I love New Girl too!! There continuity errors are a little wonky...but it's too good not to stop watching! My husband even likes it!! =)

  4. It's always hard for me to get in the Christmas spirit, we're cooking making Thursday night so I hope it helps!

  5. I feel you on not getting in to the Christmas spirit yet. I am in LOVE with the holiday season and am one of those people who listens to the Christmas music starting November 1 and gets my tree up early but this year....I just cant seem to feel the magic yet. I think the weather is seriously at fault!!! What I wouldn't do for 40's or 50's! The high here on Friday is supposed to be 73. What am I supposed to do with that?!?! I cant even wear sweaters or boots!!! Here's to hoping the magic hits us soon! And best wishes on your surgery. It is never a fun time, but especially not around the holidays.

  6. I'm so sorry you have been sick lately! We're in the 40s and 50s too, but we did have a massive snowfall before Thanksgiving! Your bar exam statement made me think of my husband with medical shows. He's always like: it doesn't happen like that!

  7. I feel you on the weather thing. It's been the same here in MI... gonna be 57 next week on Friday. WHAT THE WHAT?!

  8. The weather here in PA is so bipolar now. i dont know how to dress anymore lol

  9. I looove New Girl too! I think that's really stupid they're saying Nick passes the Bar when he didn't finish law school...seriously? I didn't even go to law school or anything and I find that ridiculous! I can't get into the Christmas spirit either!!! Since you're having the same problem I'm just going to go with our weddings were just too fun and exciting and Christmas is paling in comparison. Deal?! Although you also have surgery to deal with, and that is no fun. But hopefully you'll feel better after it's done and the recovery period is over!

  10. I am in LOVE with New Girl!! And I am having a hard time getting in the Christmas spirit as well!
