Christmas is Thursday. Can you believe that? Are you ready? Is the tree decorated to perfection? The presents bought and wrapped in such a way that no one wants to unwrap the gorgeous packages, or if they do they go so slowly in an effort to save the packaging just to get crumpled in the attic later? Is the grocery shopping done, and the meal preparations begun?
If the above describes you in any way then I need an invitation to spend the day at your house! My house has no tree, and the only reason I have any sort of decoration up is because I just bought some new ones, and as I unpacked them to show my husband he strung them on the credenza and china cabinet. I also have no Christmas baking happening as I’m so not a cook, and therefore there will also be no lovely smells coming from the kitchen on Christmas morning.
So you may ask what have I done since I’ve so obviously done nothing? I entertained my friend Yvonne from England. We scoured the bookstores, had some great meals, and went to see ICE at the Gaylord Texan. Now she’s gone, and while I should pretend to be a good wife and mother and fuss over Christmas it’s not going to happen!
So, are you like me, and having a really laid back Christmas, or are you more like Martha Stewart or Rachel Ray and going full out? If you’re planning a big party can I come, because really are you going to notice one more if the crowd is that large anyway?
Wishing you and yours a very merry holiday season no matter what holiday you’ll be celebrating.
