CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN

Do you realize that there are only 128 until Christmas 2005?   Are you ready yet?  It will be different for me this year.  This will be the first year that I won't have all of my children together at the house.  In fact this will be the very first year that the whole family won't be together on Christmas morning, even when Dickidoo was in the military for all those years.  But.... I get to shop for my Grandbaby, what fun that will be!

It is quiet in the house, the kids are all in school so guess what I'm going to do?  I'll give you a hint, it has nothing to do with dirty dishes, laundry or calorie burning.   I'll have time just before Dickidoo gets home to rush around and make it look like I've been working hard all day.  For now I'm going to take a little nap on the couch.  Why?  Because I can!

Enjoy! You deserve it. Besides, most of the work can get done between 4:30 and 5 anyway. It's amazing how fast you can clean when  you're on a timer. Heheh

I myself have already started on Christmas projects. I usually wait till the last minute and then kill myself trying to get everything done. Not this year.
Have a great nap.
Hugs, R.c.

Good for you! Take a nap for me while you're at it 'cause I'm too hyper to fall asleep during the day. The only preparation I have made for Christmas is to vow that I won't stay in Florida for the Holly Jolly season this year. Last year was enough for me. Trying to string twinkle lights around palm trees is kinda like trying to string ribbon on a rose bush. It took me weeks to recover from all the bruises. No Thanks. I'll just go freeload on all the nice relatives up North that have freeloaded on me since I relocated to a resort community! (Cackle, cackle)
