Thanksgiving went off without a hitch. Only did a 17lb bird this year so we only had leftover turkey for two days although there seems to be an abundance of yams. My family is just getting smaller and smaller. As long as no one looks at me to procreate it’s all good. Besides I only have about 4 years left on the biological clock anyway. Seems I can ignore that just like my alarm in the morning..hehe.
Now comes all the Christmas stuff. I’ve started my shopping, will probably put up the tree next weekend after I steam clean the carpet. (Never ever buy cream colored carpet… I personally deserve the jackass award for that one.) Wonder if I can hire a painter in the next two weeks to paint my entry way. I am soooo not getting on a ladder on the stairs. Need to start planning the Christmas day menu too. I really miss getting it catered but there just isn’t any place good around here anymore. Ohhhh wait. I am not working this Christmas eve… I have the luxury of time to arrange to pick up food that day. This could be very good. Hmmm. Will have to think on this as it just occurred to me it also leaves me more time for cooking.
I am debating how ashamed of myself I can handle being. My 78 year old aunt offered to press my new curtains for me… I sort of burned a whole in mine last week when I had the bright idea to wash and iron them. I really suck at the whole ironing thing. Tobi steamer here I come. That’s more my speed. Decisions decisions.
