Goth Girl’s Guide to Better Traction

In the twenty-first century, it’s not uncommon to have several Thanksgivings and Christmasses. You’ve got your mom’s family, your dad’s family, your stepfamily, your work family, your own family, and seven other families I forgot (but you best not have). I’m luckier than most in that I only had one Thanksgiving and two Christmasses this year — one in SC and one in PA. But then…I quit my job and moved right before Thanksgiving so I’ve been able to actually TAKE PART in all the festivities, and see friends along my amazing road trip that I normally wouldn’t have been able to see. As a result, I’ve come away with so many pictures I don’t even know where to start.

So I’m going to start here.

Sometimes Seven had their Christmas last night. The Gypsy got me these awesome shoelaces that look even MORE awesome in my Doc Martens…the shoes I should have been wearing yesterday morning when I slipped and fell on the ice. This will encourage me to wear decent shoes when I leave the house and limit my sneaker wearing to the house only…until Spring, anyway.

So…how many holidays do YOU celebrate?

    We had four Christmas celebrations. One with my family, one with his, one with just the two of us, and the final was with friends. My favorite was with our friends. We all lounged around in our pajamas and played Apples to Apples. It was Far more relaxing then the family events.

    Its a highly addicting and entertaining game. When you get a group of like-minded people playing, it takes on a whole new vibe.

    Christmas at my mom’s with my kids, at home with just the Hippie, with Sometimes Seven, and we have one more at the Hippie’s mom–and the kids also each had another with their other parent. Lots of presents, lots of love, many shoelaces… =))
