It's Christmas Eve at the time of this writing....really well past my bedtime....but it's Christmas Eve for cryin' out loud. I wasn't going to write an article for Christmas Day and then I thought, "Wait a minute! What if some dear one checks this blog and I didn't go to the trouble to at least acknowledge them?" So....here it is.
Merry Christmas! I began shopping for Christmas October 1 and run up to the very last minute December 24th. I don't want to get done Christmas shopping. I love it. It made me feel good tonight when at Penneys at 5:45 and they announced, "Shoppers, the store will be closing in fifteen minutes." Hurray for me....I endured to the very end! I didn't waste a drop of shopping opportunity. Earlier in the afternoon Tim and I covered seven stores...which weren't in malls. How fun.
Some day I'll be stuck in a stinky nursing home where everybody smells like yesterdays socks. I'll so yearn to get out and do something. So now I do and I love doing it.
I hope you enjoy your big day. I hope you enjoy the fuss and the bother and the fatigue and the mess. It's a treasurable moment to be so deeply involved in relatives and friends. What a time as Christmas. It goes on 52 weeks a year but really gains momentum October 1.
Merry Christmas to my friends. I love you today! If you stopped by, leave me a little note to share your fun day!
