I cannot believe that it is already December 7! Where has this year gone?
Anywho, our 13th wedding anniversary is tomorrow. We don’t have any plans, though. We went out to Texas Roadhouse for our anniversary dinner last night. Mike has been battling what we thought was a cold but turned out to be a possible sinus infection (thanks to a trip to urgent care) so we’re just spending the rest of his days off at home. Which is fine with me since I have a ton of movies that I want him to watch and I really do enjoy him being home. Then next weekend we have our friends ugly Christmas sweater party, which will be a ton of fun. I cannot wait!
I am also planning on having a Christmas get-together for the family. Nothing big, just some finger/party foods and good company. Since my Nan passed away in 2011, the Christmas tradition on my Mom’s side of the family of getting together on Christmas Eve just stopped. And it really is a shame because it was always one of the highlights of the season. So I’m hoping to start a new tradition for the family.
Unfortunately, the remainder of this month will be work, work and more work. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas and the whole family/presents thing. But the extra work required so I can assure my family has some good gifts can be more than a bit stressful. Especially when there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day to get everything done. But I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling stressed during this time of the year.
