Still the Most Wonderful Time of the Year (?)

on December 16, 2017

Quelle surprise, I am managing to hold it all together! I am thisclose to sending out cards, decorated an evergreen swag for my front door (the anemic bow on which needs replacing), put pine garland on the front porch railing (again with the anemic bows—I could not find the red velvet bows I use most years), and my holiday decorations are out.

Tree is going up later today, and as soon as I get my funds straight gifts will be ordered (lists are saved online, thank God, and most of them are still available). Fingers crossed that Santa bought from my Amazon wish list; also fingers crossed that my gifts will ship on time.

(I also need to remember to get stocking stuffers for Maggie and Sarge.)

Our holiday visiting schedule has been ironed out; I only need to decide what to make for Christmas Night dinner. I am torn between something traditional (ham [with turkey drumsticks for Baby Bro as he does not like ham], mashed potatoes, filling, vegetables, rolls, and dessert) or something not so traditional (stuffed shells, lasagna Bolognese, rolls, salad, and dessert). The latter can be made pretty much ahead of time … but who doesn’t like a traditional Christmas dinner?

But before Christmas, we have birthdays to celebrate—namely mine and Baby Bro’s. It’s my turn to pick where we are going to go for dinner. I’m concerned that dinner on a Friday night during this heavy holiday season might be problematic; perhaps picking a weeknight to go out might be the way to go.

And of course, after Christmas we have New Year’s Eve. The spousal-unit and I typically go out for a nice late lunch and then stay the hell home that night to avoid amateur hour (amateur night?). The SU’s birthday follows hard on the heels of New Year’s Day, so there’s Yet Another Dinner I have to figure out.

Which further leads me to New Year’s resolutions.

  1. I need a job!
  2. I need to quit smoking.
  3. I need to keep working on my anxiety issues.
  4. I need to get back to craft work.
  5. I need to learn to better schedule my time.

Not necessarily in any particular order.

And finally, how ’bout dem Iggles? Last night’s game was a real nail-biter but they pulled it off when it counted. We’re hoping Carson Wentz isn’t as badly injured as the media is making it sound. ETA damnit, torn ACL.
