The children are singing, the teachers are listening, the set and the costumes are nearly complete. This makes me happy.
My gifts are all bought, I've paper with which to wrap, and the house is quite cheery and warm. This makes me happy.
Decisions that seem too large for this time of year loom in front of me. People that I once counted on have become tainted and thus begins their spiral out of my life. And people that I once believed would always be a little too wishy-washy to trust have surprised me once again. So I guess some surprises are nice.
Tonight I will go out, because I desperately need to. Tonight I will laugh and drink and as always, observe. Because that is what I do.
And we all do something, don't we?
