Good Tidings to You


In order to have a more organized and manageable holiday season this year, I started shopping early. One of the shopping items on my list was our Christmas/Hanukkah card order. I gave myself a deadline. I took the photo, designed the cards, and even put a rush order on them to make sure I could get them out in a timely fashion. I bought the holiday stamps. I updated my address book. The cards arrived quickly. I unpacked them from the shipping box and set them on the dining room table. That was two weeks ago. I have not addressed a single one. I think those piles I'm looking at have now become our New Year's cards. (Hopefully for New Year's 2015.)

Monday Morning


"Bob? What are all of those sounds coming from under the blanket?"

"My bottom."

"Nice."

"Mom?"

"Yeah."

"It's a little spicy under here."

Some Kind of Logic


"It's pouring out, Bob. You need to wear pants, not shorts."

"No. I hate pants. They itch me."

"How about sweatpants? It's the biggest storm in five years."

"Sweatpants will get soggy."

"Fine. But you have to wear your raincoat."

"Why? It's just going to get all wet."

Harbinger of the Season


I've written about my favorite Christmas album before. A couple of days ago I heard one of the songs from this album - my favorite version of my favorite Christmas song - while Bob and I were having lunch at the coffee shop and I knew the Christmas season had really begun. It is not possible for me to not be happy while listening to Let it Snow by Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme circa 1966. So throw on a holiday caftan and grab a cup of eggnog. Let's do this.
