thanksgiving is over (wanna see pix? i'll share ... you know i will!), so i can now officially focus on christmas. marc pulled seven boxes of holiday schtuff out of the garage yesterday so i could begin the decorating process. all of the house stuff is out, so now i need to work on the garlands and get those done so this weekend can be all about the TREE. love this time of year!
it's gonna be a crazy month, but at least at the end will be my favorite holiday of the year. this week is full-up ... i'm going to a pre-wedding celebratory yee-ha skin care thing (yeah ... isn't that a good description?) for my lovely friend nisa tomorrow night, along with girlies susan and kirsten, nisa's mom, and, i believe, her future sil. (correct me if i'm wrong, nisa.) i've never done a pre-wedding celebratory yee-ha skin care thing before, so it should be fun. and even if it's not, i'll be with people i love, so any bad will be canceled out.
then on wednesday we're having our friends dave & jess over for a late dinner (ie after kids are in bed), and on friday henry tests for his black belt. wow. but that only means we'll be at the taekwondo school pretty much every day of the week for regular classes as well as private lessons. say a little prayer for the kid ... he's gonna need it.
saturday we'll try to get the tree, henry goes to a b'day party, and we're having our neighbor, sean, over for some steaks as a thank you for watching our cat (back in september, but whatever.). sunday we're going to another neighbors' home for a holiday open house/meet the new neighbors in the 'hood/eat appetizers and drink wine kind of thing.
and then marc heads to north carolina for seven days, and possibly chicago for two days. then we'll take off for indiana (again) for christmas. silver lining? i should see two of my dearest girlfriends and their families for the first time in two years. ahh!!!!
oh, and finish xmas shopping. think since we'll be in indiana i'll be doing the rest via the internet and just have it shipped to our final destination. no need schlepping it twice.
sigh. good times, the holidays. bwahahaha.
regardless, the snowmen are out in full-force at my house and that makes me happy. so it's all good.
