This probably was not the BEST time to be away from home for two weeks. But I think my Christmas celebration is pretty much together except for wrapping ... and one last thing to pick up. Thank goodness for online shopping and free delivery. And a little family at my condo to accept packages.
Tonight here in Louisville we are having a low key, stay in for dinner, enjoy a fire in the fireplace and watch a holiday movie kind of night. We may even bake a few cookies. I have a Hanukkah gift to wrap for each of these three for tonight. Since I won't be here for the final night!
Most of our running around is complete. We have our ingredients for our Saturday potluck contributions (three hour trek to Columbus) to be with brothers and families for Christmas. It's been about five years since we have all been together. Somehow it doesn't seem to be a big deal to the four brothers. The two sisters communicate almost every day and see each other at least twice a year.
It just is what it is! AND ... it's just seven more nights!
