Taxlady, I feel you pain......our holiday party is tonight. I have a full day of prep ahead of me. Don't worry, you will get it all done and so will I. I'm pulling for you :-). BTW, which chairs are you getting from Ikea? I think I could use some spares for the future. Oh and wine glasses, yes they do break don't they? Why not pick some up at Ikea when you get the additional chairs (Not fancy, but perfectly serviceable). They usually have them for a buck or so during this season and heck for that price you can throw them in the fireplace ;-).

Good luck with tonight's party! I'm pulling for you too.


BÖRJE Chair - brown-black/Gobo white - IKEA

Yeah, I will get it all done, but will I get any sleep the night before the party?

I will get some cheap crystal wine glasses. I really, really prefer crystal. None of them have ever broken during a party or even party-related. It's 'cause we use them all the time. I'm not too worried about breakage. I bought this dozen in 1992 or 93 and I'm down to six. I have so much stuff that I don't really have room for "good glasses" and "everyday glasses".

8 sleeps! I've done all the shopping for work kids, the stockings are crammed full, and someone else can wrap all the stupid gifts. I'm DONE. Now I'll be working on wrapping and putting things under our tree. I have 3 days off and I'll be baking and wrapping and singing my heart out.

I borrowed Sing Star Abba from work. Heeheehee! Can't wait to break that out.

And while you are counting down to Christmas, I have only seven hours till surgery. I have to leave at 6:30 in the morning. Time to take a shower and start getting ready. I like to be tired and sleepy when I go.

Here's hoping the surgery and everything around it goes smoothly and well.

Thank you everyone. I am all dressed, no makeup, and ready to go. I have my coat out and so excited. I have waited for this moment since last March. Everytime they thought I could have the surgery, my heart would act up. I made sure I took my meds right yesterday and this morning. My pickup time is six o'clock.
