Oh happy Saturday of weekend bliss! Most of the time I love having a weekend completely free and unencumbered by places I need to be or things I need to do. But it's December, and tonight is my first holiday party with friends. Mostly work people, complete with ornament exchange and fun. I picked up some cute ornaments for the exchange, and am planning to bring beer and high spirits. It should be fun. We're planning to stop at our favorite barbecue place for dinner on the way up.
Tomorrow is the day we've set to get the tree. It's a little early for us, but next weekend is completely booked and after that the pickings are rather slim in this major metropolitan area. So tomorrow it is. That should give the cats some time to get used to it, and then I can start wrapping the presents to put under it. I wonder where our stockings went. Actually, we have a couple of boxes of decorations and ornaments and I have no idea where they are.
I would love to have a party, but it's not going to happen. Christmas being actually on the weekend this year means one less weekend available, and forget new year's. Not planning anything for then, the expectations are just too high and all I ever want to do is watch movies and sleep. Plus the in-laws are going home before NYE, so they won't be around to meet everyone. I think I only have three non-work parties this year, although all three of them are being thrown by work friends. Hmm. Is no one else having a party?
And then again, we are hosting Christmas dinner. That's more than enough to satisfy my party organizing soul.
I am starting to believe that I do not have to write epics in order to post something here. It's too often that I don't have the time or the energy to write more, so I don't post anything. And I don't want to do that. So you're getting this post in all its shortness, and I will go on my merry way and get ready for the party. Laters!
