Ho Ho Ho…

Soooo, did he come yet? …….

        …No?…….

                 ……… Shouldn’t he have been here by now?………

                                  ….What do you mean it’s not Christmas Yet?…….

                                               ………I was positive it was him last night on the roof!…….

WELL, I for one am Christmas’d out! My house looks like a Hallmark movie set, the smell of cookies & meatballs has forced me to gain five pounds, the presents look so pretty under the tree that I probably won’t let anyone open them……The dining room table looks like Macy’s Fifth Avenue Window, and the husband is singing “Jingle Bells”!

I don’t know about you but I feel like I stepped into a “Stepford Wife” sequel……..WAIT! let me look am I wearing pearls?? Whew, no just sweats…..wow that was close!

I love Christmas it is my holiday of all holiday’s but this year for some reason it just came out of left field with no notice and I feel like I’m playing “Catch-up” every day!

This Christmas Eve will mark my “40th” ! I’ve been hosting it for 40 years….I think this year will be my swan song! Next year I want to be on South Beach with a Mai Tai in one hand and a beach ball in the other…….Yup, sounds like a plan!

Oh no, the husband just put his Santa hat on……..that can’t be good……….time to go shopping – for something……….PEACE OUT!

Laughter is a given for most of us…..we laugh when ever we want, at whatever we want……that’s a freedom most of us take for granted sometimes……

While your finishing up all your last minute details, and hugging your children,  husbands and wives on Christmas Eve……take a moment to remember those who won’t be home for the fun and family get togethers’…and pray they’re home this time next year……..

 

To all of you who have family in the military, and won’t be celebrating this Christmas with them –

Thank you for your sacrifice!

  1. I’m kind of Christmas’d out myself. I think many people feel that way this close to the holiday.

  2. Lois, one reason for the “catch up” feeling is we have one less weekend this year between Thanksgiving and Christmas. In retail, this has been a struggle to get sales up in a shorter time. The oddest thing this year is on Thanksgiving night it seemed we started trying to “wind down” Christmas. I feverently hope this isn’t your swan song, you have made me feel the joy where there was none!

    • Oh Thank you dear friend! Every year for the pas 39 years I threaten to pass the baton on to the girls….and every year I start again with my shopping and planning!! Lets hope I survive this year! LOL!
