Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

Here it is, Christmas Eve Eve already. Tomorrow night I go to my mother~in~law's house like we do every year to celebrate Christmas with Skip's family & exchange presents with her, my sister~in~law, brother~in~law, niece & nephew & what have I done in regards to wrapping? Nothing. I've got 4 or 5 presents wrapped & I don't think any of them need to go with me tomorrow night.

::::big sigh::::

We picked up the lasagne that we ordered from a local place that makes the best pasta & will have that plus chicken & prosciutto tortellini, lemon chicken, garlic bread (all from that same place) & salad for dinner on Christmas day when my family comes over to our house.

I'm prepared in just about every every way but the wrapping. I'm going to have to enlist Skip to help me & some of the presents will have to go into bags with tissue paper or funky cloth bags called Wrapsacks. Tomorrow, Skip is opening the store for 1/2 a day (10:00 ~ 1:00) on his own (I'm staying home), so I'll be able to get his stuff wrapped while he's gone & also do some last minute cleaning/organizing.

Thankfully, we're closed not only on Tuesday for Christmas, but on Wednesday, too. I desperately need these next 3 days off, not only to enjoy the holiday, but for my own know...a little relaxation, whatever the heck that is. Maybe I'll get a little time to catch up on my stuff that I TiVo'd. In the meantime....don't anyone dare tell me what's going on this season on "Project Runway" because I haven't watched a single episode....they're all sitting there on the TiVo waiting for me with a ton of other shows.

Since I do have the next 3 days off, I'll be able to post somebody, anybody, send me some questions...anything you like, doesn't only have to be holiday related...just ask away!

Hi Liz

I have some questions for you...

1. If you could be any one of Santa's Reindeer, other then Rudolph, which one would you like to be?

2. What is your favorite song?

3. If you could be in charge of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, what new balloon would you add?

4. If you could have one famous person, living or dead, over for the holidays, who would it be?

5. David Duchovny or Dylan McDermott?

6. Chocolate Mousse or Chocolate dipped strawberries?

7. Where oh where has my little dog gone? (Have fun with that one!)

8. If you could have a completely different name, what would it be?

9. What is fantasy gift would you like to receive for Christmas?

10. If you could go on any game show, which one would it be?

11. If you could own an exotic animal, which one would it be?

I hope it's ok to ask multiple questions, if not, then just pick the one you like most. :) Merry Christmas darlin... and may the New Year treat you like GOLD.

Hugs, Carly

It's wierd how different things are in the south. We do turkey, ham, dressing, potato salad...etc for Christmas dinner. My friend that lives in Islip does the pasta thing, and they have seafood also.
Anyway, Have a great holiday sweetie!
