As you might imagine, our days have been busy around here. We’ve been making visits, meeting friends–and servicing a few more milk runs that usual.
It’s been a hodge-podge.
The other day, my sister-in-law mentioned that it doesn’t seem like Christmas. I must admit it’s true. Could be the fact that we’re trying to squeeze in a thousand different things … could be the rain … could be the fact that I’m behind, as usual. Although, be it known, it was not entirely my fault this year. I kept waiting for jobs to come through, invoices to be paid. Buying gifts and placing them under the tree did not meet deadline. Sigh.
My nephew summed it up nicely while waiting for ice cream at “the home” on Saturday, when he suddenly yelled, Jag måste ha tålamod! I MUST HAVE PATIENCE! It’s something I tell myself on a regular basis … but now I’m going to fist pump the air and yell for all I’m worth. Maybe that will work. At least it’s worth a try.
So, with that, I’m off to finish Christmas cards … maybe wrap a present or two … drink some nog … watch a Christmas movie … you know, partake in the festive sorts. At least I’m off to take a shower before the wee one wakes up, being it’s just the two of us this morning.
Oh, and how could I forget? That lost piece of luggage? It ended up on our doorstep late Thursday night–a Christmas miracle, non?!
