I ventured out into the big bad world today and was surprised at how calm it was. I was doing a jig inside my head. Of course, I didn't go to the mall or Costco or Target, but I did go to 2 grocery stores, the post office, the car wash and a craft store.
We are headed to the hideaway in the morning. We're there till the morning of Christmas Eve, then back to the bay area in time to pick up oldest niece from the airport then head to the parentals for dinner. Then home for a not so long winters nap, back to the parentals in the morning. Children age 4, 6, 8, 12 and nearly 14 will be waiting anxiously to open presents.
I may not get the chance to update daily while we're at the hideaway. I hope to, but can't count on it. So for now I leave you with:
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"
