Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone. With so much cooking it passed me by in a blur. The very next day the dreaded flu struck our family. Honestly, I am sure this strain of flu is much worse than usual. I can normally carry on business as usual, but not this time. I was literally knocked off my feet. I hibernated on the couch for 48 hours with hardly enough strength to make it to the bathroom. Unfortunately, two of my sons, both my parents, and one grandchild (so far) also had it. Rough stuff! I hope your family is spared.
I am sooooooo ready for Christmas! Have the tree up and the stockings are hung with those very expensive hooks that won't rip the varnish off the mantle and you just pull the tab to release them. When all the kids are well, I'll send one of the boys into the woods to gather mistletoe and holly for decoration. My siblings and I take turns holding the annual Christmas party for the entire family. This is my year to host. Thankfully, I have a basement that's large enough to hold the masses. I'm thinking barbecue with all the trimmings this year. Yummy!
It isn't even Dec. 1st and I have all my gifts bought. Of course, I start Christmas shopping in September. Then, when Christmas Eve arrives I put the grandkids in the snuggly pajamas I buy for the occasion and we open presents in front of the fire. My favorite day of the year!
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and Santa brings exactly what you wished for!!!!!!
