The time is here. The tree is up. The house is just about all clean. The comforters, curtains and windows are all washed. The countdown has begun.
The young son is home. He is tired and wore out as usual but he is here.
Tomorrow, we will see two people that we have known since 1981. It will be a nice day.
The rest of the family will be here later in the week.
Christmas is almost like cooking a meal. You spend hours and hours, days, even weeks getting ready. It comes and it goes so fast. Still, it is worth the time and effort.
I love this time of year if it can be done without much stress, which has been a goal for this year. The decorating is a bare minimum but that's okay. It will be a bare minimum clean up.
At this time in my life, it's about the whole process being EZ. Do I have an amen?
