Bah, Humbug!

I’ve felt a bit like Scrooge this holiday season. It’s the first year Dean Martin wasn’t belting “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” back on November 1st. I’m even trading my favorite Ella Fitzgerald winter tunes for some of her darker refrains.

This Scrooge has had enough visiting with the Ghost of Christmas Past. It’s time to move past the chains of disappointment-tainted hope…

So, here’s to Mexico! I have a Skype interview! I haven’t even had a chance to tell my family yet–as I just got the email. This has been much like my Minnesota Life Experience (remember my 3rd or 4th post detailing my impulsivity?), except this time I’m praying like a mad woman! I gotta say though–it’s really looking like this might happen.

If it’s the Lord’s will, I know I will soon be learning espanol. If it’s not, you will have to endure countless posts about East Tennessee Woes. (I will make this promise: I won’t say anything else negative about my beloved home-state without restoring balance by telling you something good–It will be like a Bless-It’s-Little-Heart afterthought.) I’m working on being content, and I gotta say, I think I’m losing this struggle. It’s like I take two steps forward and one step back.

Merry Christmas, friends-o-mine. Learn from me: Be content with the place you’re in. Let’s get control over the ghosts of the past and present so that we can truly say:

Not my will, but thine be done…
