One More Reason To Stay In Bed Monday Morning
For some reason, our family is passionate about giving utilitarian Chanukah gifts. Growing up, I'd light the menorah, eat some latkes and gelt, and then unwrap a pair of socks. It was quite the contrast from the glitz and glamour of the glittery ornament adorned Christmas tree and the wrapped toys nestled under it waiting for Christmas morning. Sort of a holiday spirit buzz kill for my five-year-old self, really. When I got older, I came to appreciate the fact that socks were more important than say, that Power Rangers action figure set I had been daydreaming about (true fact: I still have a crush on the Red Ranger), and jumped on the useful gift bandwagon. Which is why I emailed my step-mother in early October with what things I needed this year. Subject line: Want. Contents? Pictures of giant, fluffy down comforters.
You see, it's friggin' freezing here at night, and the thin bedspread provided by my aunt was not cuttin' the mustard. When a giant box from Dillard's arrived with my name on it, I was so excited that I started opening it while simultaneously trying to navigate the multiple flights of stairs up to my room. All this waiting didn't disappoint. Now I have the warmest, fluffiest bed ever and one more reason to stay in bed Monday morning.
Making my Tacky Timewarp Room feel like home is starting to come along. I bought a little somethin' somethin' to hang on the walls and I'm planning on what to do above my headboard. I'm thinking about DIYing some honeycomb shelves and painting them glossy white. Thoughts?
