The tree is lit, the gifts are wrapped and I’m all ready for the Christmas festivities to begin. The next day or two will be a whirlwind of time spent with family, opening gifts and eating tasty food. Every other year I hold Christmas Eve dinner at my house and I have to say I’m happy that I’m not hosting this time around.
Tomorrow I plan to do absolutely nothing but read a book that’s been sitting on my nightstand for over a week. I want to sleep in late, take a long morning shower, change into comfy clothes, light a fire and snuggle onto the couch with my book and my kitty. I planned to do that today, but a few last minute coupons and gift ideas got in the way of a long, relaxing afternoon.
I need to prepare a small appetizer for tomorrow’s get together. I haven’t figured out what to make yet, but I do NOT plan on going to the grocery store in search of ingredients. If I don’t have everything I need on hand, then I’m taking a large tub of hummus and some veggies.
I’m looking forward to Christmas and to seeing all of the people I love. Now I just need to maintain these warm, happy feelings as my husband and I rush and hustle from one location to another over the next two days.
