Christmas is coming and Thanksgiving is too!
I don’t know how but I’ve frittered away my ‘free’ time between Halloween and Thanksgiving and it occurred to me today that we better get a turkey or something. My sister and her crew are all coming to visit so we will have a very full house for 3 days. Menus must be planned in advance to feed 7 kids and 4 adults, can’t just look in the fridge and figure it out.
Thanksgiving being later means Christmas is coming even faster than I thought. I know, time passes at a constant rate (allegedly…) but Niamh asked me today how long until my birthday and I asked the date and with the answer “November 19th” that means my birthday is in 30 days. Not that my birthday is a national holiday with fireworks or planning but it does precede Christmas by a mere 7 days so I need to get going on that beast of a project. I have good ideas for a little gift for all my aunts and uncles and cousins, I can bang it out assembly line style one weekend and I’m happy with the idea. Other family gifts I have not given much thought but we are going to NY for christmas so with 30 days to go I had to hop on airline tickets. With the wonders of the internet and Lars right there I managed to find tickets at reasonable prices with zero layover at times that are good for avoiding traffic and maxamizing normal kid schedules so I call that a massive win. The fact I did the entire transaction in under 10 minutes makes me nervous on one hand but feel like a travel pro on the other. Anyway, NY here we come (in a month) ((anyone want to feed our cat?))
I need to get going on my massive to-do list that just had ‘shop for turkey’ added so until tomorrow~
