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.
