Except for the cooking, I think I’m ready. Suzanne’s family is staying at our house, and John’s family will come for supper and the church pageant. (Here’s hoping the minister doesn’t give a long prayer like last year when all the toddlers were holding lighted candles. My advice: Just raise the candles and blow them out.)
On Sunday, we all go to John’s house for my daughter-in-law’s fabulous cooking, bringing a few contributions of our own.
So. Donations have been mailed. Almost all the tips have been handed out (have to catch the sanitation engineers next week; they were too fast for us). The tree is decorated. The presents are wrapped. The camera is recharged. What am I forgetting?
Whatever your holiday, please take it slow. And savor.
