It's the 19th. I started early this year. ;-)
No tree yet, but we did actually go to the tree place - they just weren't open when we stopped by.
But it counts.
Did a good bit of shopping. I especially enjoyed finally getting out to see my good friend at the Heaven and Nature store where she works. It was lovely. I didn't want to leave.
Middle, Little and I spent the whole afternoon Christmas and grocery shopping. We got a lot done, but by the time I was checking out at the grocery store, my anterior tibialis tendonitis was acting up to the point that all I wanted to do was go home, apply ice, and take large quantities of Aleve.
Suck it up, ankle. This is what we do.
Tomorrow I need to make cookies for an evening cookie exchange. Wednesday I work, Thursday features a Winter Solstice party / drum circle, Friday is for last-minute shopping and wrapping, and Saturday is Christmas Eve with my parents. Sunday we travel to CT for the day.
This is my preferred way of doing Christmas - one intensive week, followed by a week of relaxing and enjoying each other's company and our new toys.
Off to put together some gift bags. And ice my foot.
