Hey there! How are ya’all? Good, I hope! It's the season of love, hope, and joy, and I hope you have all three—in spades!
Things are fabulous here…cannot wait to see what the new year will bring us. Hope your plans for the new year are as tremendous as mine. Because I’m expecting wonderful things! Huge things! Stupendous things! LOL
So, while I’m on the topic of wonderful things, I just wanted to take a second to fill ya’all in on my Christmas…because I know those of you who have been following my Christmas blogs are all wondering what Kayce got for Christmas this year. (I've already received inquiries. LOL) Did she get a new can opener this year? Or was it a coffee maker? Or did Christmas go in a completely new direction and bring her a new mixer, or a crock pot, or a new truck? And was it RED?
Okay, so Kayce just bought herself a new truck last December, so she really didn’t need another one…and they’re pretty pricey, so that didn’t happen this year. LOL So, what was under that tree?
Well, for those who don’t follow my blogs religiously, there is a history here. My son, Dustin, has a tremendous (read twisted) sense of humor…and he lives to mess with his mother. (No doubt, it’s payback for all the years I messed with him.) So, in years past, he has bought his mom a number of can openers—RED—and a number of coffeemakers—RED. Two years ago, he had his wife purchase a red coffeemaker for mom (as a joke), knowing she already had one exactly like it. (Poor Heather got caught in the middle on that one. LOL)
So, mom told him last year “no more coffeemakers”. There just wasn’t room on the counter for a third red coffeemaker. And when I get up in the morning, it’s just such a challenge to put one foot in front of the other to get to the kitchen—let alone, having to choose which coffeemaker to use that day! Dustin was crushed, but he decided not to be deterred…after all, a good time was a good time. But, thankfully he understood the limitations of space on the counter and did not get me a new coffeemaker.
Instead, he got me a new red can opener…like I didn’t already have one. Okay, it was a good laugh for everyone—and a good laugh is a wonderful thing—and I didn’t have to make room on the counter for it.
Now we have a new Christmas, and a new gift to buy, to give, to look forward to, and to receive. What will it be this year? And will it be RED?
Well, hell yeah, it’ll be RED!
And bless his heart, my son found a way to both please his mother, and to give her yet another coffeemaker…a RED KEURIG!!!! And I freaking LOVE it!
Woo Hoo…hell yeah, I’ll make room on the counter for that beauty! (But next year I might need a new house, or at least a new kitchen. Just sayin...smile)
Well, folks, it’s been a great year and it was topped off with a fun and fabulous Christmas and a new RED Keurig. Now it’s time to look forward to 2018. I hope you have an outstanding year ahead and that you enjoyed the story about my Red Christmas. I sooo love red!
So, enjoy your New Year celebration and go into the new year with excitement and expectation. Set your goals high and dream it, say it out loud, make it happen! Stay safe, stay happy, and stay fun!
That’s my story, red and ridonkulous, and I’m stickin’ to it. Hang on tight now, ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!
and the coffee's always on...
