This is Us

I think I’m “ready..”🤔

My daughter and I were driving through relentless rain yesterday morning trying to pick up some last minute items.

I don’t know how it is where you live, but around these parts the shelves are bare.. completely and efficiently picked over.  It feels and looks more like the day before a hurricane, not the week before Christmas.  I actually purchased the very last, pre-made, red bow at Michaels..and believe you me, there was a reason it was the last bow standing.  It’s a sad little thing but I gratefully hung it on our back gate during a break in the all-day downpour. (You can’t NOT have a bow on your gate!)

Later on,  while venturing out solo, I finally snagged the last two items on my list: deodorant and eggnog. I know, I know..who drives around looking for eggnog and deodorant..but by this point, I had turned into that person I become when I won’t take “sorry, we don’t have any” for an answer. When I finally found both items I texted a trophy shot to my daughter. I felt like a hunter who had finally bagged sustenance for my hungry (and smelly?) family back at the cave..

I am now officially ready for the holidays.

  2. There are still things I have to do, but shopping is done, the tree is up and decorated and the great feast planned out – so I guess I’ve covered all the important bases. Bring it on! And Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    • And a Merry Christmas to you too! 😊I loved the story about you in the car with your family..If I close my eyes I am right there too, in the back seat, staring out the window thinking about where in the world Santa could possibly be at just that minute.. magical moments.. we just didn’t realize it.
