I’m done. Shopping is finished, gifts are finished, cards are mailed. All of our homemade gifts have been given to the AWANA teachers and to BSF teachers and Sunday School teachers will get theirs on Sunday. We have one more Christmas party tomorrow night, just for grown-ups, which I’m looking forward to. After tomorrow night all of our firm commitments are finished. FOR THREE WEEKS. The next thing on my calendar is a dentist appointment on 5 January for Little Boy. I looked at my calendar and it’s blessedly empty.
Although I like doing those fun things like Christmas cards and making gifts and ornaments, I also like just doing whatever we want. Currently everyone but Handsome is sick, so we’re just hanging out at home today, having called with our apologies to the homeschool party we were supposed to go to.
So, for the next three weeks, we’ll continue to do school, we’ll play with our new toys that come at Christmas, I’m going to do some major freezer cooking, and I’ll dream of organising things because that’s what I do when a new year approaches.
And if the weather continues like it has been, we might even have a White Christmas!!
