Ah, the days, they are a-flying by! The holiday will be upon us before I even get the decorations up, at this rate. Luckily for us, our Navy boy, Sean, will be home for Christmas this year, so we’ll have the family all together for the first time in YEARS! That’s gift enough for me.
I’ve been tuning and tuning like a madwoman---thank goodness for the work! People have been so generous this year and for that I am truly thankful. The Christmas Spirit seems to be stronger this year than in the past. Perhaps it is due to the economic status or maybe because folks are discovering that Christmas is a time for GIVING rather than grabbing. Or maybe, I’m just lucky and can put all that greed out of my mind for the time being. Since I am NOT sending anything out via post office or UPS this year, it all seems…well strange. For years I’ve mailed tons of stuff and been so relieved when it’s all done and I can concentrate on just our family here. This time, that stress has been lifted and I can look at the season through different eyes. Besides, I’m MAKING most of the gifts this year (that’s my excuse for not blogging more!), so I have plenty to prepare for.
Just got a call from Sean, who says he’ll be driving up here on the 23rd and leaving for Washington State around the 27th. It’ll be great to see him again! Enjoy the weekend.
