Hi! Didja miss me? I’ve been keeping busy (not really, but it sounds good.) I have accomplished a thing or two, though. Like cleaning the kitchen and cooking a few meals. And watching back to back episodes of Star Wars while snuggling on the sofa with my beloved. Good stuff, that. The snuggling, not Star Wars.
Now I must confess that I’m not ready for Christmas. In case you haven’t noticed, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. Scratch that. Every day is thanksgiving, but you know what I mean. I’m a straggler when it comes to decorating for the holidays. I never, ever put out Christmas bling before December first. I’ve been known to wait until the twenty-first. And we don’t do lights on the outside of the house, for obvious reasons. Would YOU want to spend Good Friday taking down Christmas lights?
Ah, but Christmas lists? That’s another story. No, I don’t make a list, but my kids do. Lindsey called me just a few days ago to tell me what she wanted.
“Mom, I’d like to have a (some brand name) coat. Do you know what I’m talking about? Christy can tell you if you don’t. Anyway, you can get me that for Christmas, okay?”
“Sure, honey, but let’s talk about that when I’m not at work.”
“Okay. Or you can give me your car. Loveyoubye.”
Hmm. That must be some coat.
Y’all have a fantastic Friday, y’hear?
