Today was the annual cookie bake day. My wife’s sisters get together and bake a crap ton of cookies, trash talk and just laugh together.
I am not a baker, so I deal solely in production. Structure is my wheelhouse so I make sure cookies go in, cookies get out, cookies get transferred to cool, and most importantly, production continues.
I don’t usually enjoy it, but today I jumped in and really had fun.
We sang, we laughed … it was better than Cats.
And, it actually put me in the holiday spirit. It was good to spend time with family and just be together.
After my sister-in-law’s health scare, making up with my brother, and being open about my #metoo experience and receiving amazing support from my dad and brother, the holidays just seem a little brighter.
