PostSubject: What are you doing this Christmas?   Sun Dec 23, 2007 10:35 am

For the first time since I moved, I'm staying home for Christmas. It's my gift to me. No 800 mile odyssey, not getting stuck in snow for days unable to get home if coming from the north or in traffic in that miserable abomination known as Las Vegas (my friends seldom want to see the Grand Canyon or Zion- they want to meet in Vegas, which I loathe). No air mattress that leaks to soggy over the course of the night, no broken bedsprings poking me in the ribs. No heaters turned down too low, no lack of blankets, no overcooked turkey, no boomerang all over southern California in it's ungodly traffic to ferry elderly relatives around. No tea strength coffee prepared by the people we're staying with, no baby poop and barf stories while I'm eating ("oh, but it's so cute- once you have babies you'll be immune, oh and by the way the baby's poop is green right now and how's the turkey? Is it moist enough?") No enthroned new mother milking herself with the milking machine at the dinner table. No reproachful complaints that even though I'm only home about 8 months a year that we don't see family enough. No trying to slip away through more traffic to meet friends at the loud crowded impossible to park place they chose to meet at...I could go on and on.
Instead it's me making Oaxacan black mole in my own kitchen, moonlight on the snow coming through the windows in a house where I control the thermostat, not going anywhere and sleeping in my own comfy bed. This is my gift to me this year.

MoD, I think you've earned a break! Yikes.

I am having a quiet Christmas at home also, by myself because my girls will be at their dad's. I will be doing a bit of hospital editing (hospitals never close of course so they are very happy to have me take care of the critical editing - hard to get anyone to volunteer).

My kid's Christmas is today since they will be gone tomorrow and for the first time I'm not cooking. I asked them where they wanted to go eat and they chose Bob Evans. The rest of the meals will be cereal and leftover pizza and they haven't complained, in fact my oldest said "this will be nice - no huge pile of dishes and pots and pans to wash". heh.

I had to go back again and watch the penguins! heh heh.

I had a pretty good christmas yesterday. Quiet day today and I'm finishing a book I wanted to read. I will probably take a nap this afternoon too - got woke up at 4 a.m. with a kitten sitting on my chest and then sneezing in my face! silly baby.
