Yep, I’m ready. Bring it on.
My shopping is nearly done. Just need some gift cards to finish up. Even got the wrapping done. I hate to wrap presents. One year when my daughter was a teenager, I even handed her all her presents in boxes and had her wrap them. When she asked what names to out on them and I told her to put her name on the tags, she wasn’t happy with me. Gift bags were designed for people like me. But this year I actually wrapped things in paper. Mostly because I know Soren will be excited to unwrap gifts! The things we do for grandchildren.
Anyway, I decorated the house yesterday and put up the tree.
Today I made some party mix. It didn’t turn out very good. I used the crockpot and even with continually stirring and keeping it on low, it still tastes burnt. So, I guess another batch of that in the oven will be necessary.
I’ve got my staff Christmas party at my house, scheduled a girls night with my high school friends, trying to schedule a get together with some other girlfriends. I figure since I went to all this trouble, by golly, I need to have company. My family won’t be here to enjoy it (my dad is unable to get in my house and my austerity only shows up once every few years). My daughter won’t be here until after the New Year and since I will be heading out for vacation right after she is here, I doubt the house will still be decorated then.
My plan today was to do nothing but read Allure of the Gypsies, but I’m just now getting time to sit and read.
But I’m thankful that I have everything done and now I can enjoy the season.
