Christmas Eve

I tried to get my daughter interested in Santa, but she isn't familiar with the idea yet. I'm looking forward to seeing her face tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile, my husband drove through 600 miles of rain, freezing rain, sleet, accidents and crazy drivers. There were no problems for him, although I did have to call some state police to find out if the stopped traffic was due to weather, accidents, or road closure. He made it home safely, and I'm thankful for that.

Now we are watching A Christmas Story. Just got to the tongue on the flagpole part. Hilarious. Can't help but love this movie.

I still don't know if we'll be going to see my husband's family tomorrow. He said "it's up to you," which is passive aggressive speak for I don't really want to go. I don't care either way for myself, but I like for my daughter to spend time with her cousins. So, we'll see what happens. I braved the grocery store today, in case I need to make some dinner tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!


  1. Merry Christmas, I'm glad your hubby is home safe and sound. Christmas is so fun with little ones, they love the lights and paper. Sending my best, Martha

  2. :) I'll try but I find it hard to be cheery amongst dust and boxes while swearing up a blue cloud :)



  3. At least he's being passive agressive about seeing HIS family. Mine is like that seeing my family. It pisses me off. I spend all this time with his parents and he kicks the dirt to have to eat dinner with mine.

    You know, this was the first year my kids got into Santa. Even last year, when Ella was 3, she didn't really "get" it. Damn, now xmas is over, what am I going to threaten them with? ~wink~
