Almost Wordless Wednesday – Christmas Dreams & Reality…


Oh yes.  I admit it!  Every year, I have that selfish little tinge- dreams of beautiful packages just for me under the tree from hubs.  You’d think after 14 years of marriage, (and an Indian head lighter from him one year – I don’t smoke…) I would’ve learned, but darn it!  I still get sucked into that hopeful excitement walking through the mall, and seeing all that glitter and display. Maybe, just maybe, a dress like this would wind up under my tree:


But then, reality sets in.  I know to whom I am married and what I should expect:

I'm a lawyer and the mom of a 6 year old boy with autism. I work part time and spend the rest driving here and there and everywhere for my son's various therapies. Instead of trying cases, I now play Pac-man and watch SpongeBob. I wear old sweaters and jeans and always, always flat shoes to run after my son. Yeah, it's different but I wouldn't change it for anything. The love of my child is the most powerful, beautiful and rewarding aspect of my life.

    I’m pretty sure I’ll end up with socks too.

    Ha ha…so true! But at least maybe they will be cashmere socks! My hubs just tells me, “Get yourself something nice”. No surprises here, but also plenty o booze! 🙂 Cheers!
