Christmas Shopping

Posted by adamswife on December 7, 2007

 

CatLights 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. D

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.ROFL

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.

    Yay for you! I am enjoying the jolly Christmas look, as well. I have cards addressed but not written or sent…..most gifts purchased. I’m trying to stay stress free, you know. Or mostly. 🙂

  2. I hope you’re resting up from yesterday’s adventure with the grandkids because I’m sensing you skipped the nap 🙂
    Hugs and blessings,

    By the way … if you have continued trouble leaving a link when commenting at my Blog, check with Sandy and/or John who each have Web logs and have been able to leave links back to their Blogs in comments at Small Reflections.

    Hi! I love the new look you’ve made here, it gets me in a very Christmassy mood!
    I’ll be decorating the tree too today, it has been waiting for a week now, with only the lights in it, I should really finish it today!
    Enjoy your Sunday!

  5. Oooooh! So jealous of your shopping….I’m not even close to finishing my shopping…..Naps are so temping. If I did it when my daughter was awake, I’m sure the house would explode!
