We had a lovely dinner with my brother-in-law and his girlfriend. Pork loin, zucchini gratin and rice pilaf. Potato chips and onion dip for hors d'oeuvres (trashy, but always a crowd pleaser) and Katie and Mike brought the most tacky cake they could find at the super market. I am so full, and so thirsty! I just know I'm going to dream about waterfalls and flushing toilets all night long.
My house is decorated for the holidays, but I'm just not in the mood. I usually get in the mood when I'm decorating the tree, but this year it just seems like one long to-do list. Tomorrow, the dog goes to the vet to check out his limp, and when I get home I will finish packing up the candy I made, mail off the one box I need to mail, and by that time it will be time to pick up Leila from school and I will spend the afternoon farting around.
Tuesday, I will wrap presents, Thursday I will make cookies (or maybe Saturday, I'm not sure) and Friday is Leila's holiday party at school. Next Sunday, I have to go to my mother-in-law's for a little holiday wine and cheese that my parents are invited to, and which I find totally excruciating. She means well, but I dread it every year.
This is a good way to get my mind set for the week, so thanks for your patience during that description of my calendar of events.
I need to go have some experiences. This blog is getting a little dry, and I need to go do something so I will have something to write about. The vet is always good for a laugh. He is a lunatic, but he's thorough and he's reasonably priced, so there you go.
I've only gotten two Christmas cards so far. I'm wondering if people are cutting expenses by not sending cards. I only sent half of what I usually send, and I saved a lot of money.
I'm going to bed. I was hoping the act of typing would inspire something, but we're all out of luck. Nighty night.
