Well, it means we've almost survived the rush. Of course there have been the usual last minute disasters (glass not fitting in frames, etc.) but that's all forgotten now.
Er . . . I mean . . .
I hope I haven't forgotten anything . . .
Tree decorated? Check.
Thanksgiving weight lost? Check.
Gifts wrapped? Check.
Cleaning? Laundry? Groceries? Triple check.
Serenity returned to the home? Check.
You should know by now that I
may possibly be a compulsive liar --
If any of those things are actually true
at your house, please raise your hand.
And please take a picture and send it to me so I can dream sweet Christmas dreams while I'm hanging out in the Grinch's lair
(for one more week.)
Now . . . thank you for your patience.
Please just leave me be for one more afternoon
and I'll check in on you tomorrow
before I pack the sleigh!
Monday, Monday --
sometimes it just turns out that way . . .
