I shamelessly admit I am not . I should have it all finished by tomorrow though.

I still have to go to Trader Joe's to get some wine and champagne for two parties that I was invited to.

The wine is for Christmas Day and the champagne is for New Years Day.

With mommie in the hospital, it has been very hard to get ready and to know what we are going to do for Christmas. Their house has always been the Christmas Eve tradition. I think we will take her some presents and treats to the hospital on Christmas (I guess). We just aren't having the best Christmas.

Crewsk said it first and I can only parrot what she said. Shopping is done, still have cleaning and cooking, and wrapping to do.

Just three gifts to wrap and I'm done. Hooray!

In a word, no. In several words, not by a long chalk. In lots of words, aagh repeated ad infinitum.
