It took a few days for the pre-holiday evil mood to wear off. Once I get a big case of evil cranked up it takes a while to sleep it off. Or whatever.
Since my Dad is up and about again things have been much better. I don’t have to be nice to anyone before 8am and that makes me much less cranky….
Around here, the initial flurry of preparation is done. The tree is up. The gifts are wrapped and several holiday parties have been attended. It’s been fun.
This next week is all about swat cleaning the house and having friends over. I also need to plan a few event-type meals for next weekend. We’re having company a few times, plus my folks for Christmas Eve. I’m going to produce the kind of meal that you eat in the dining room, not the kitchen.
Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas to all you out there. You make my every day more interesting.
