MilSpouse First Friday Fill-In (December)

Here's my questions and answers for Decemeber!

1. What’s one thing in the past month you would have changed? I would have chilled out a little more.  Maybe living in the middle of nowhere is starting to get to me, maybe it's preparing to move across the world, but there were a few days this month that I definitely stressed myself out waaay too much.  I also feel like I've been going non-stop and could totally use a day on the couch with a bottle of wine and a Law and Order SVU marathon.  That would totally straighten things out for a while.  Dum-Dum.
2. What was your favorite thing that happened in November? Went to Dallas with friends and ate ungodly amounts of delicious food which made me so freaking happy.  Really, how could we NOT have 2 dinners in one night.  We also John & Sherry from Young House Love at our first book signing.  Oh! And we had our first formal afternoon tea.  That makes us all sound so fancy pants, but don't let that fool you.
3. What is your favorite holiday memory? There is a toss up between 2 specific moments.  Once at Thanksgiving I laughed so hard I fell through my chair.  No joke.  My parents had this beautiful old OLD dining room set that was old.  We never had any issues with it up until then, but it was getting kinda old and the chairs kind of rickety.  *laugh* *laugh* *boom*  The seat of the chair just totally gave way.  Which is weird because I must have weighed all of 100lbs at the time, and my uncle's chair, who was supporting nearly 400lbs was fine. Did I mention the chair was old?
And then there was the time that we look over and my grandmothers head was in my grandfathers lap.  My dad yells, "Mom! Can't you wait until you get home!!!??!" My grandmother was the first one to pick up on it, my mom is yelling at my dad for saying that 'in front of the kids', my grandfather doesn't know why everyone is laughing and yells "Does anyone have a flashlight!?!", and I swear - food and drink must have shot out of everyone's nose.  That was like the funniest shit ever.  We are all still laughing about it, and that must have been 10 years ago.  Oh, the reason it looked like my grandma's head was in his lap was that he dropped one of his pills, and she was looking for it on the floor.
4. What are your plans for New Year’s Eve? We are going 'home' during the Christmas/New Years time, so our week is going to be pretty busy.  As of now, the plans are to hang out with my sister in NJ, get a shit ton of pizza *angels singing* (and booze), and just hang out.  I'm sure video games and lots of darts are going to happen. Also, annoying her cats.  Cause that's what we do.
5. What are you looking forward to in December? December is going to be a busy month.  Next week I'm looking forward to packing ALL OF OUR STUFF AND SENDING IT TO JAPAN.  Holy crap.  And OF COURSE I'm so so SO stoked to see my family the week after that.
