(Borrowed from Donna)
So on Friday morning I woke up feeling pretty good and ready to bake but first I wanted to check on my emails and do some clearing in my reader. So I am on the computer for about 1 hour when the power went out. I knew that I couldn't bake so I thought this might be a good time to finish wrapping the gifts so that's what I did. As time went on I hoped the power would come on soon because I didn't want 12 thawed pizzas!
Luckily it was only out for about 2 hours. (high winds) So I was finishing up the wrapping and I started feeling extremely nauseous. No way, I didn't have time for that so I turned to my trusted friend Emetrol for nausea. If you have never had this it's worth keeping in the house. A doctor told us about it many, many years ago and it's still on the shelves in the store. I think I found it at Target.
So I have always been a pretty good gift wrapper. Loved wrapping presents. I always wanted to work like at a Nordstrom's in the gift wrap center. Anyway I think as I have aged I just don't care as much anymore. I still wrap a nice gift but I think the OCD parts have left my brain! Well I know that it left because you would never see so many crooked to/from labels years ago. Why I can't get them straight is beyond me!
So all the gifts are wrapped and under the tree. Got a few batches of cookies mixed and will bake them tomorrow. Have several others I hope to make but we shall see! Mark came home early and did a few loads of laundry to help me out. Thanks honey.
The church I normally go to does not have a Christmas Eve service this year. I decided that I am going to play some Christmas carols and read the story of the birth of Jesus. Then it will be Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life!
Wishing Everyone a
Very Merry Christmas Eve!
P.S. Hope to post some pictures on Christmas Day!
