Today I am in a bit of a panic. Christmas is only 10 days away and the countdown to all the holiday parties and gift giving is underway. This weekend is dedicated to decorating the Christmas tree with my sister Wendy and her two wonderful kids, and then going back to her house and decorating her tree, too.
We found a great place to buy our fresh Christmas trees – at one of the high schools that are letting the Boy Scouts sell trees in their parking lot. The trees are reasonably priced and they even flock them for you if you like the white trees instead of the natural green. Wendy and I both like the green, so flocking is not an issue for us, but evidently it is a big deal to a lot of people around here.
After we get the trees up, we will be exhausted, so we will probably order a pizza and just chill out in Wendy’s living room and watch some Christmas movies with the kids.
Next weekend is our company Christmas party. We will be having a sit down dinner and dance with a live band at the country club in Brentwood. I can’t wait to go and have a nice evening with everyone from work. But that means next weekend will be busy with the party and no time for any other shopping or baking or anything. So I have to get everything done this weekend and next week. After all, Christmas is only 10 days away!
