If you guessed that today is the first Monday in December and it is also the annual Ornament Exchange……
Then you would be CORRECT!
I briefly thought about canceling or postponing the shindig. Very briefly, like for a nanosecond. And then I pulled myself up by my bootstraps, or bra straps, or some kind of straps, and knew that there was no way that I was going to cancel. I needed my friends around to steal ornaments and get my life back into some semblance of normalcy. So what if I only had two days to get all the cooking done and the cleaning and the decorating.
I can rest on Tuesday.
And besides, Dad would tell me not to cancel. The man always liked a good party, especially if it had wine. Which this party does not because we already get all wild and crazy without the added benefit of alcohol.
Hoo Boy if I added alcohol then I would DEFINITELY be the topic of discussion at the annual neighborhood Christmas party next week.
I am sure I will give you the whole rundown on all the stealing that goes on. I share everything else with you.
Well, I didn’t share the dark chocolate that I ate this afternoon. Don’t judge.
So, without further ado………..I thought I would show you the 2013 ornament. Oh they are SO cute. And boy I am glad that most of them were done before I unexpectedly went out of town for two weeks.
And if you are actually attending the party tonight then you need to stop reading……
Stop reading NOW if you are attending. Don’t make me come over there, I still have too much to do.
Seriously, every year I just get tickled when I see the ornament.
I am so odd.
A whole basket of elves just waiting to go home with someone.
Now back to preparations. I am hoping to have a cup of coffee and put my feet up for a bit.
