Christmas Day 2003

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

Luke 2:13-14

Christmas song honkers

Goooood morning! Today is holiday luncheon day, and believe me, the urge to do anything constructive is gone.I brought my cam, so maybe I can get some good festive shots.

Here’s another honker of a Christmas song that I hadn’t heard since last year — that crappy “Christmas Shoes” one. Little kid, Christmas Eve, dying mother. Reeeeeeeeeeealy makes you want to get out of bed in the morning. it makes “Where are you Christmas” seem as fun as a Weird Al song.

So the first week of management was pretty ducky. No major crises. Went to target last night and picked up a cute new top for the luncheon. It’s a red knit v-neck shirt with a white collar, cuffs, and tails sewn to it to look like a 2-piecer. It’s cute, except I’m feeling compelled to tuck in the tails. You’re not supposed to, though. I’m also donning my light-up reindeer antlers, and jingle bells around my neck and on my earrings. Fear me.

Mood: Joyful
Work docket: I have to muddle through Hot Properties. Then we’re just going to relax. I have to write cards out for the folks here at work today.
Afternoon Plans: I put CookieCam on hiatus for today. I need to spend time with laundry and vaccumming and Max this afternoon.
Evening: May go see “Return of the King” tonight w/David. The movie runs 3 hours and 20 minutes. I wish I could pop into the theater for the last hour and twenty minutes. Me thinky that Aragorn should hook up with Eowyn, the butt-kicking blond human girl. But I’m darn sure he’s going to end up with the elf Arwyn. I mean…she’s going to look like that for the course of his natural human life. He’s going to be 80 and she’ll still be Liv Tyler. What man would give that up?
Weekend: Unknown! But decorating the Christmas tree will happen.

November 26, 2003

Hey, Kim, shouldn’t you be at yoga?

Why yes, dear Reader, I should. But tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day, and I have a dinner to get ready for.

Mom does Christmas day. Sue does Christmas Eve. But Thanksgiving is MINE. Granted, I’m only cooking for four, but I like to go all out. I break out the — well, let’s not use the word break. I TAKE out my Lenox china, polish up my silver, and get cooking. Here’s tomorrow’s menu…

  • Turkey (natch)
  • Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Green Bean Casserole
  • Stuffing
  • Cranberry Sauce (in convenient can-shaped form!)
  • Corn
  • Dinner rolls
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Apple Cobbler (recipe to be determined tomorrow)

    Tonight I polished the silver, washed the china, scrubbed spots out of the rug (mutters about juvenile delinquent dog) and put the leaf in the table.

    Mom’ll come over around 11 tomorrow to help me wrestle with the turkey. I hate tearing the gut-bag out of the bird. Drives me crazy. I think then I’ll make the macaroni and cheese and the mashed potatoes ahead of time. Dinner should be at 5ish. If all goes well, that is.

    Then, after dinner, the boys will sack out on the sofa and watch football. Mom and I will dig through the sales circulars in the paper and make our Black Friday plan of attack. Every year on Black Friday, Mom and I start shopping at dawn. We’re the village idiots that you see on the news and in the papers. Yes, we’ve waited in a parking lot at 5:30 am for a store to open. It’s pure consumer bliss. Maybe I’ll bring the camera around and chronicle our day.

    (Kim sucks down more of her Starbuck’s peppermint mocha and prays for the caffeine to kick in)

    OK…much to do. I want to get my Dept 56 Christmas in the City collection up on the mantle for tomorrow. I’m trying to get the hospital off of eBay. You may recall my Godless town of Turberville from last year. It has a nightclub, casino, restaurant, police station, drug store (in honor of David’s former job), two restaurants, a bookstore, and a newspaper (in honor of my job). I think after a wild night on the town, the hospital would be the next logical thing. And it would be in honor of David’s current job. I’m also going to get the little ale-wagon too. 😉
