It’s Christmas Week.
And I know some of you are gonna want to crawl right up into your computer screens, reach out and slap me, but…
Pretty much TOTALLY ready.
Last night, I finished the wrapping. The decorating is long done. The baking is all stored in the freezer, waiting for me to fill the tins to take with me to holiday parties.
I’ve listened to Bieber so much that I almost know the words to “Drummer Boy” off by heart. That’s right. I can rap. (Even the Busta Rhymes parts.)
I’ve dropped my Angel Tree gift off at the Family Centre. I got my “Christmas hair do” on Saturday.
My house is clean. I did laundry last night, so all of my best Christmas socks are ready for the weekend. (Well, that and the rest of my good clothes.)
And the holiday specials and movies that I really wanted to see have all been viewed. The only one left to go is Miracle on 34th Street, and I always watch it Christmas Eve day.
I have some last-minute grocery shopping to do, which I always save for Christmas Eve day as well. Just some snacks and fun foods to have around the house for the holidays. And truthfully, I’m not buying as much as I usually do because…well…the diet, y’know.
Seriously. I’m almost kind of bored this week.
It’s the calm before the Christmas storm…
But it’s kind of nice. I’m enjoying the fact that I have time in the evenings to do Yoga or go for a walk or do an exercise video. I have time to watch whatever special or movie my little heart desires. I have time to just lie on the couch and sip peppermint tea or hot chocolate, look at the Christmas tree, and think of all I have to be thankful for this time of year…
I keep thinking I must be forgetting something…I’m never this prepared. There’s usually some kind of last-minute scramble this week.
But literally, the only thing I can think of that I have left to do is paint my nails. And I’m holding off til later in the week to make sure they’re nice and “fresh”.
So very, totally, amazingly ready. Knock on wood.
Now if only I could make it snow…
