Going to wrap some last minute gifts in front of my electric fireplace (yeah, it's pathetic, but we MISS our real one in our old house), listen to xmas music and just relax for the festivities tomorrow and Saturday.

I went to work today and it was fun -- a useless day for working, but fun!

Ew don't go see The Polar Express... the characters look soul-less! Go see Finding Neverland, I might go see that tomorrow!

Oh and I love that today's Christmas Eve Eve. That's what I said earlier today!

We braved the malls today - scary and I'm never doing it again. But I did get a cute button down shirt from Express to wear on Christmas.

Today was so slow, that I only worked 4 hrs - they let some of us go home early. One of my coworkers had to take care of some business, on my side of town and I gave him a ride and took him to the grocery store. I remember the days of trying to haul groceries home, on the bus.

Bill had a burger craving so we went to the 5 and Diner for dinner. Just got home and I'm already in my flannel jammies, fleecy robe and slippers. We're expecting an overnight low of 28 I predict that there will be one large lump, in the middle of our bed. Opie's already there and has been, for most of the day.

Wouldn't be so darn bad, but he's cooked cheesecakes every night since Sunday night, and made yeast rolls and orange rolls the past two mornings......but the extra money does come in handy this time of year!

I'm feeling so unchristmasy this year. I did the grocery shopping today (hardly anyone at the grocery store thank goodness). All the gifts are under the tree and I was unable to get to hobby lobby to get the remainder of things I need to finish hubs lasy gift. I'm really upset. I took a hot bath just to relax and started reading the first Lemony Snicket book. I just feel numb about the holiday this year. My mom is in Florida, my father is in Maine... the inlaws are in Vermont... and here we are in Kentucky. I guess I'm just a little sad because the holidays were always such a great family event when I was growing up and this year it is just hub and I. I can't think about it anymore or I'll cry. The recent snow is making me miss Vermont as well...

Aw no crying Beth... Baylee and I will be your family too! Sorry can't help more... I WISH I could be spending it with just my boyfriend and Bay... however Christmas day for me will involve a 3 hour drive and time spent with both families!

If you have any extras...

I'm bored out of my mind-all we did today was shovel snow and sit and stare at it. Ever notice when you can't go anywhere you think of 50 places you need to go? I won't be able to get my car out until well after August. I've been stuck at home all day long!

We just started the turkey for tomorrow's dinner.
The presents are all wrapped. We are very blessed for this I know!!
The roads are too bad for traveling anywhere and it is almost 0 degrees outside.
My daughter had Christmas with her Dad and Step-mom. Sounds like she got some really cool stuff, including a bicycle, a porcelain Cinderella doll with a glass slipper with 2004 on it, among other things. Jake, my son, is sick as well as my Grandson, although they haven't seen each other in over a year. He got ready to walk to the store, rather than un-bury his car and the neighbor came out and offered to take him to the store to get medicine for his cold. I thought that was a great Christmas spirit gesture! I told him when he gets up tomorrow to call me and I will come and get him to spend the day here eating and open his gifts tomorrow evening.
I actually think I may get to see my Grandson on Sunday. He is sick with strep throat

I am eating Wheaties and watching the Weather Channel w/Sasha and wishing I was in Indiana with PJ because we love snow and are very short this year! I also wanna bake with Lena and do cheesecakes with Cathi and then hang at the bar with Heidi. Yeah! Eric is working a special party event in downtown Seattle and will be home about 3 a.m. so while the cop's away......I could bring Abby becuae she's so bored. Hey, it's Ladies Night, right?

Well, I finished the last of my shopping today -- not without some frustration, but it's done. Rob has a little left, but I think nothing strenuous, and while he's off tending that tomorrow, I shall be wrapping gifts, and baking apple pies for Christmas dinner. I don't need to do anything else, because dinner is at Rob's Mum's and his sister is organizing and everything else is under control. For now, it's a little playing on TCS and then time to hit the hay.
