In the midst of all the craziness that surrounds getting ready for the holidays, Hubby and I have managed to have some fun time. And although there has also been the hustle of getting everything done on time, worry over bills, and health and family concerns, I am choosing to find the happy in the season today, so that I don't lose sight of what is important and get bogged down and stressed out.
I work a full day today, after an exhausting day yesterday, but it's FRIDAY! I have my To DO list all ready for the day and it looks totally doable. So, here's my list of Happy for today:
*All of the presents are bought, wrapped and ready to go under the tree tomorrow. And I only have a couple of errands after work and they are quick ones.
*The menus are made, the food bought and stored, and I have a bacon quiche in the oven for dinner.
*It's payday and we are all caught up on bills, Hubby got a bonus, even!
*The Girl, and Scout and Dutch, will all be here to enjoy the weekend which will include liberal amounts of good wine and card playing and delicious food.
*All of the laundry and ironing are caught up. The house is clean, Christmas-y, and beautiful.
*I got to have a very nice lunch with my mother yesterday and take her some new flannel sheets and a safer bath rug, as well as vacuum and sweep her downstairs, move some plants inside.
I guess I could keep listing - it's a great exercise in perspective. The point is, we are almost there - Christmas Day - and I can take a moment to live in the moment and enjoy the weekend - and so can you!
Merry Christmas from the Cannary Family!
