What is it about organized events that makes people behave as though they are crazy?
I know it is partially me. I have certain expectations in my head of what it is *supposed* to look like, how things are *supposed* to go, how things are *supposed* to flow.
However, I think I'm getting a lot better at just going with the flow and letting things happen the way they'll happen.
And that is why, even though several people were in bad moods last night; even though I found out that Kelsey doesn't like decorating the tree (seriously! I had NO idea!!!); even though we didn't have hot chocolate or Christmas carols playing; even though the garland that I spent ALL afternoon making was neither long enough, nor was it the right color (so it didn't get used on the tree);even with all of that, we STILL had a good evening.
We played Killer Bunnies. We had Helmut's pizza (which is the best pizza in the world). We got the tree up and decorated. And. I got one picture of everyone together, smiling (sort of).
