Well, it's finally here. Christmas Eve. Work this morning was kind of funny. There was a GROUP of people waiting to get in right at 8 a.m. A GROUP! Most of them bought a couple of things and were in and out in just minutes. Generally, between 8 and 10 a.m., not much happens. Today, not the case. It started at 8, and was still going strong when I left at noon. I, too, had to do some shopping after work. I did most of it yesterday, because I didn't want to do it today, but somehow-terrible 'mother' that I am- I forgot to get dog food!! Now, it's not as terrible as it sounds, I guess, because: a)she probably wouldn't have run out before Sunday, when I went back to work at Trader Joe's; and b) I am working at the kennel all weekend...we definitely have food that I could've 'borrowed' for the weekend. On the upside, I also got her some Charlie Bears and Greenies! And, treats for the cat.
Anyway, I have finished up all of my shopping and wrapping, and baking and fruit salad assembly. The other day, for fun, I baked some cookies from a kit we were selling for 99 cents. Yummy! It was super easy and it took care of that nagging voice saying 'it's not Christmas until you bake some cookies!'
So, happy holidays to all of you, whatever your beliefs or traditions are! Be safe and forever grateful for the family and friends you have!
(I can't wait to post pics of the gifts I'm giving tonight...unfortunately, family members read this on occasion, and I don't want to spoil any surprises for tonight!!)
