Whew!! Christmas certainly has a way of sneaking up on a woman, doesn't it? Of course, if you're like me and a major procrastinator, it's even worse. Right now I'm making my Christmas jam so DH can bring it to church tomorrow to hand out to everyone. Yeah, I could have done this back in November but why do it then and relax instead of doing it last minute? Last minute is SO much more exciting! Atleast it's not midnight like last year! I guess I'm getting better!!
I still also need to finish shopping for the littles (the rest of everyone else is done) and I need to do some cooking for my dad. I usually make up 3-4 recipes and package them in smaller containers so that he can have some good homecooked food that he'd not normally make for himself. He's alone and in his 80s so cooking is not really fun for him. I'll also make a larger meal since my brother and sister-in-law are coming into town with my little nephew and it will be a help to all of them to have a full meal fixed for them.
So tomorrow I'll take DH to bring his car in (needs oil change and inspection) and then head out to finish shopping for the littles. I then have an appointment with my breast surgeon (everything is OK - but I had a severe case of mastitis almost 6 years ago and it damaged some ducts and a lymph node so he's staying on top of that regularly just in case...) and then it looks like I'm seeing the dentist. I hate the dentist. But I haven't been in so long and I have a tooth with a big chunk taken out of it for some reason. I made an appointment for my 16 year old but she's going to be working so I guess it's mine now. :( We'll see how it goes.
Well, if I don't "see" all of you, have a wonderful Christmas! May God bless your family and your time together as you celebrate His birth.
