Twas the Night Before

Christmas Eve! Not a creature was stirring, except us little mice who have to work today!

But at 5 o'clock this evening it will be VACATION!!!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve & I'll be on vacation until after the New Year.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere. Can I start vacation now please?

Wrapping: Check

Yep. The wrapping is done & the gifts wait under the tree for Christmas morning. The last cookie is baked & the only thing left to do is clean the house & get ready for Christmas dinner. Then all next week I'll be sitting back, relaxing, & enjoying a week's vacation before the new year begins. Ahhh...I can't wait!

Shopping: Check

Yay!! I got all my Christmas shopping done!! Now I just gotta wrap it all & put it under the tree. And wait till Sunday to see everyone's face when they tear it apart.

How's your Christmas shopping going? Have you finished or are you waiting until Christmas Eve to make a mad dash for what's left on the store shelves?

Well, Christmas is almost here & I haven't bought a single gift. But that's not unusual for me. There are only two things I seem to procrastinate on with any regularity; Writing & Christmas Shopping. They do get done in the end, however ,so I'm not completely without hope.

Since this is the last full shopping weekend before Christmas I'll get it all done on Saturday. I know what I'm getting, mostly, so it shouldn't take all day. Thank goodness for that because I hate fighting the crowds. And you know there will be crowds. It is Christmas after all.

As for writing? Well, I'll work on that this weekend, too. Saturday morning is MCRW's annual Christmas Party & Book Swap. I can't wait!! I love this group & "book swap" is a mild term for the "give me that book or I'll pour punch in your lap & smear frosting on your head" dirty Santa game we play every year. It's all in good fun & we always leave with a good book & an even better memory.

I love this time of year!!

Check out my little helper. Isn't he the cutest thing ever?!

Wow. What a great weekend. The house is clean (a feat in itself), the tree is up & ready for Christmas, my stove is working again (for now) and my baby girl turned 20. I'd say I accomplished quite a bit over the past two days. Now back to the old grindstone!
