All by myself in an empty house and a DVR filling up with holiday-Kleenex-holding-eye-wiping-chick-flicks needing to be watched. Of course the Kleenex was also helpful in wiping my runny nose due to the weather change. “Did I mention the arctic shift in temperatures?” Maybe that is why I served good old fashioned Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese…a little comfort food is just what my mother would have ordered for a itchy throat.
Time for the next movie and this time with my youngest! Maybe a nice cup of hot chocolate later!
“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”
I am one of the people who watch every Christmas movie from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve. Unfortunately…my hubby is not a fan of these chick-flick-Christmas-romance-Santa-spirited-all-lived-happily-ever-after type of movies. From the beginning of our relationship, some 27 1/2 years ago, he has made it known…
My Hubby’s Annoyance With My Tastes!
The funny thing, as I sit here this morning watching a new Christmas movie I TiVoed, this has been a year of change in my hubby. His dislike for sports, namely college and NFL football, has pretty much done a 180…we would find him watching the beloved football team fight for a win with us and as the NFL season began and the Falcons won he changed. We now watch most NFL games and he has picked his favorites. My 19 year old son is blown away and told his daddy that this was definitely the way to live. He explained that having his dad yell, in true sport-fanatic-hoot-and-hollering style, at the players and coaches made his game-day-experience complete.
All of this to say…yesterday, after the game, he dozed off and I changed the channel. He woke to find himself watching the last half of a Christmas movie called “Hitched for The Holidays”. He enjoyed it…but as it ended I gave him the remote. I went to fix dinner and he relaxed in the role of his control in button pushing. He watched 2 shows and paid no attention to the 8:00 movie coming up next.
“Help For The Holidays”
Are you sitting down? He watched it…all the way through…he even asked me to pause the movie when he ran upstairs. “That was not as bad as I thought!” he said. I will not force him into chick-flick-mania BUT…if he happens to get caught up in the story I will not change the channel.
I am going to settle in and watch this movie…Do you like holiday movies? If so…what are your favorites? Have a great day!
