Is it just me or does it just not seem possible that Christmas is only five days away? Given the fact that it was 80 degrees here in Dallas just a few days ago, it really doesn't feel like Christmas either. But thankfully some cooler weather has blown in, along with some much-needed rain, and it will be winter-like by the time Christmas arrives. We might even get some white stuff...but I'm not counting any chickens just yet.
Well, we survived last week. It was busy, to say the least. This week is no better really. With only five days to get my house in order, I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get everything done. Did part of the grocery shopping last night. Finished up all but two of the gifts that needed wrapping. Still lack a trip to Sam's and a trip to the post office for stamps. And then it will be time to settle in to get the house clean & the table set. Have two rehearsals and a church service to sing tonight. Have a family Christmas dinner to attend on Saturday. Have five services to sing on Christmas Eve. And then it will be time for the Christmas Day marathon--lunch at our house with my family & dinner across town with the in-laws.
And in 11 days...we'll know for sure if Derek made his year-end sales number. We're relatively certain he's already made the magic monthly number to put him over the top for the year, but the reporting system is slow. If he makes it, there will be a big, flashy post not to mention a big party at our house!!!!
