Yesterday was all about finishing up.  Extra hard workout, liquor store run, and home to cook, cook, cook. 


The rain hosing down made the day extra special.  Boy Howdie – am I glad I didn’t have to be anywhere after lunch.  Traffic was a mess in the morning.  I can imagine what it was like later for all those people struggling home from work.  Or for families trying to get started on holiday travel.  It must have been miserable.


I vividly remember those days, trying to get out of work a few hours early to beat the rush, with one zillion things to do.  Now when I see those women, standing in line at the store in their middle management pumps and a list a mile long – ugh, I feel so sorry for them.


Holidays are stressful.  Santa Claus is a woman. 


Yesterday, we entered the Good Zone.  By the time Mr. Wonderful got home from work, all was done.  House clean, food prepared or prepped for the future, cookies baked. 


We had a nice dinner and then fired up the TV and the fireplace.  I had sent the kids (ages 19 and 15) out for a movie.   Their choice for a family movie night?  The Muppets Christmas Carol.


They might be older and larger, but they are still kids.
