IT’S COMING. IN 51 DAYS. (!!!)
We were in IKEA today and I was elated to see they’ve put up Christmas decorations in their display rooms. Theo was excited too, can’t you tell?
I know, I know. Thanksgiving first. All that jazz.
Speaking of jazz, I was listening to some last night while cooking with Tobias. He ran out to get some last-minute ingredients at the store…and I switched the music over to a Christmas jazz playlist and danced around the kitchen with Theo. Tobias came home and I tried to cover it up. “NO, WE WEREN’T LISTENING TO CHRISTMAS MUSIC WHILE YOU WERE GONE!” …except the singer crooning “Silver Bells” in the background betrayed me.
Tobias loves me a lot, so he just laughed at me and listened to a few more songs with me.
And because I love Tobias a lot, I switched back to the other playlist after those couple of songs.
And that, my friends, is a good example of compromise in a marriage. Putting up with each other’s craziness, and also knowing when to hold back when needed.
