Christmas A Go-Go
But it isn't Christmas.
Oh, well! Life goes on. Today Husband will take the kids to see Monsters Inc. in 3-D while I sign and address a small mountain of Christmas cards. My goal is to finish today (this is so early for me!! I usually do this over MLK weekend) and have this enormous task off my plate so I can sit back and enjoy TV nirvana: the season premiere of Downton Abbey and a new episode of The Good Wife! It doesn't get better than this.
But first we must go to church, where Kind Tina begged me for a favor; I'll be leading a Q&A with some Sikh youth during our Time For All Ages/First Sermon. I can hardly wait to hear what I'm going to say! (Answer: Whatever comes out of my mouth, there is no script.) At least it will be blessedly short; TFAA is only about 10 minutes. I can wing anything for 10 minutes.
Mimosa needs to bring an empty soup can to Youth Group tonight, so dinner will be whatever involves a can of cream of mushroom soup, or perhaps a can of broth. An interesting challenge awaits!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
p.s. I called Nurse Kathy last Monday and ended up chatting with her firefighter husband; "What'd you do this weekend?" I asked, and he said, "Took down those Christmas decorations — that tree had to go." I said, "Whuhhh?"— (it was only December 30! chillax, dude!) — and then remembered his profession. "Yes," I said, "I think of you every time I turn on the tree lights . . . knowing how dry the tree is getting . . . What would Kathy's husband say? I wonder . . ." He laughed. Every time he comes to my house and notices that I've got candles lit, which is often, he greets me with the words, "I see two open flames . . ." He's adorable.
