From our home to yours
We've got a busy full day ahead of us. I was up last night from 3 - 4:30 wrapping gifts...about the only time I was able to irk out. About the only time safe from big kids walking in on me. About the only time I could rant loudly, without being overheard, about the ridiculousness of wrapping stocking stuffers. Seriously. Does anyone else do that...and how do you stop once you start?
Today's list is long.
Pa just ran out the door to go to two stores - one for ingredients for cake, stocking stuffers and milk .... and another for ingredients for the gift that I had 364 days to make. Darn procrastinating gene.
Also, my grandfather passed away last evening - so today finds me trying to figure out if we can make it up north (a 10 hour drive), if I'll go alone, if we'll all go, or if it's going to pan out at all. I'll go thru the motions of trying to get the laundry ready, regardless.
Today also has us watching Wendy and hoping she's not now caught the bug that Allan had a couple weeks ago. She crawled in our bed with a bellyache at four this morning. eta: phew...she's fine. No fever, no bellyache...must have just been a middle of the night thing.
Today has the kids watching the Santa tracker
The house smelling for baking
and us all finding joy in the season, each other - and hoping the same for all our friends
Happy holidays to you and yours!
