I finished my Christmas shopping today. Now I just have to complete my fabric postcards for the exchange, make Ed’s clock with the grandkids’ pictures in place of numbers, and get a few Christmas cards in the mail. No problem! Then, of course, there’s decorating the tree and wrapping the packages. That ought to keep me out of trouble for a day or two.
Today is Laura and Harold’s 11th anniversary. They have gone to Red Lobster for dinner and then a talent show at the college. Guess who gets to babysit? My mantra is “I love my grandchildren, I love my grandchildren, I love my grandchildren.” They are just the tiniest bit hyper this evening.
It’s just past 7:30 and I’m ready to send them all to bed. I think the resistance would be more than I’m up to, however. Whenever I babysit I am impressed again with the wisdom of our Father that He arranged for parents to be young! I think it’s wonderful for women who are beginning their families at 40, but I also wonder if they really know what they’re in for in another 10 or 15 years.
It’s been a long day and I’m ready for a nap and some Christmas movies. Do I dare doze while the children are still up? Or will they kill each other while I’m sleeping? Best stay awake.
