You Guys Rock
Thanks for your comments and bringing me up to date on what you are doing and/or reading. I've finally had a chance to get through the over 200 posts that were on my google reader. I saw lots of great Christmas pictures, recipes and saw that I'm not the only one dragging my bootie after a couple of rounds of Christmas shopping.
Our dog Emily is the last one I have to shop for... well except I found out last night that 4 more people are coming over Christmas Eve so I have a couple of things to pick up for that evening. But I have to say, now that the majority of the grunt work for Christmas is behind me I'm really getting sort of giddy. I enjoy having people over and Christmas Eve should be fun. We will have a mix of family and friends throughout the afternoon and evening. I especially love that my kids have their closest friends stop by. Beanie has had the same group of friends for 4-5 years. I scold, and lecture, and hug 'em just like my own.
Speaking of my kids, Shmoo is back together with GF #1. All seems well. So we live in the moment expecting the drama to come knocking at our door at any time.
Beanie is working tonight but before he left for work he made me commit to going to see Alvin and the Chipmunks with him tomorrow. We even roped Shmoo (the cynic in the family) into agreeing to go too. I don't have big expectations for the movie. I would just like to smile a little and rock out to the Chipmunk song. That's all. I'm already pretty happy that my sons will still go to the movies with me.
Yeah, it's Christmas, and no, this isn't a Christmas song, but it IS a song that GG and I particularly like. Besides...things like Christmas ARE better when you're together...
