Like Franklin above, I’m a tired puppy. This week has been filled with late work nights since Sunday with the launch of With Intention, Business in the City, and getting a huge Macy’s order out the door (yes, still have one more mega Macy’s order to go before Jess LC is officially laid to rest).
I think the long hours have been taking a toll on the whole family. Mr. Lively, my resident web programmer, coded the With Intention site and has been working late with me. And now we are both under the weather. And even the little pup has a cold of his own. He sneezes about 146 times a day.
So we will all be in rest and recovery mode this weekend.
Oh, and then there is Christmas Day.
Tomorrow is my annual tradition of “Christmas Day” for Mr. Lively. It began when we were dating and not going to be together on December 25th. I had a few surprises for him and he was admittedly not the over-eager Christmas holiday person that I was. So to pump him up about the holiday and celebrate with him before we went home to our families, I created a day for him. You could easily insert Mr. Lively Day for Christmas Day, really.
He loves it.
So tomorrow is the 2012 Christmas Day. It will be a bit more low-key this year than years past because we have a puppy to care for every few hours and we aren’t feeling so hot. But there will be merriment, good food, and a few surprises (I promised I wouldn’t write what they are here on the site because Mr. Lively said he couldn’t be trusted not to peek).
And in case you are wondering about what I get… don’t worry. I have Valentine’s Day. Which is usually a short trip somewhere warm in February to escape the Chicago winter blues.
[If you ask me, I get the better end of this holiday tradition.]
Have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading and supporting the With Intention launch!
