So I am an idiot and I’m going to explain why with a little back story. So every Tuesday my husband and I go over to my mother-in-law’s house for dinner and to watch the show This Is Us. Well these past two weeks I haven’t been able to go to Tuesday night dinners because of work. I work at hotel at the desk so I normally work till 11:30 PM most nights except Tuesdays where I get done at 5 PM.
Anyways tomorrow is dinner at Donna’s (mother in law) and I needed to catch up on the two episodes I missed so my dumb ass decided “Hey its slow at work! Just watch the episodes now!” So I proceeded to open my Hulu app and start my binge watching…… I am an idiot. This God damn show made me cry! WHILE AT WORK! This is not okay! At work I can’t let these people smell weakness, 99% of the time the people who stay here are awesome, but that 10% oh man are they out for blood, mainly my blood. I can not let them see my weak ass crying because Jack is crying in the show. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!
If you haven’t watched the show, its amazing, you’ll laugh and you’ll cry, mostly cry, but its all worth it. I look forward every Tuesday going over to Donna’s house and having dinner and watching TV. It’s become sort of tradition so to speak. I get home and change and I grab Daisy and we head over to the house; Daisy gets to play with Larry Donna’s beagle mix and we get to eat a home cooked meal which is few and far between when you work a night shift. That’s what I miss the most, is gathering around the table and talking about our day and enjoying some great food with the people you love.
With Christmas coming up I’m excited the most for Christmas morning and no it’s not for the presents. It’s for the Christmas morning breakfast Donna makes we all get together and open presents then we gather around the table and open these party poppers she gets. You pop them all confetti come flying out and inside each there is a special message. We then dig into Donna’s breakfast lasagna and have a cup of coffee to wash it all down.
I haven’t had a Christmas day breakfast since my dad passed in 2014. He would always make this amazing breakfast platter and we would eat and then watch Olive the other Reindeer. It was the best Christmas I’ve ever had and since his passing we never did it again, until I met Nick and his family. It really makes you appreciate the small things you take for granted when you’re young. You’re never to old to spend time with the people you love.
