Peach State says: The Beginning of the Christmas Party Season!

I will be attending the first of several Christmas Parties tonight. Hydrate…Hydrate! I, along with 2 of our 4 sons, will be driving over to the area close to my hubby’s work tonight. With my hubby being #2 boss…I will be the perfect big-smile-hand-shake-of-course-I-know-you-chatty-bubbly-personality-filled wife. I will be dressed in black velvet pants and holiday colors with 3-inch heels while the wives and girlfriends of the other employees will be in jeans and a various assortment of tops. Wait a second…had to Hydrate! I have many things to do today before I head out for the hour commute to the party location. Tis the season…The Beginning of the Christmas Party Season!

My day started early this morning…my Precious Princess needed to sniff every piece of bark and every leaf about 4:50 am. I let her out and got to say goodbye to my 19 year old son before he left this morning. “He should have already arrived at an Army Base, close by, for a duty station tour and he said he would be getting the “recruit haircut” while he is there…good thing he likes short haircuts! He will meet up with my 22 year old son at my parent’s house for a visit tonight.” They have not said when they will be coming home! “I hope it is before Saturday…my mom is sending me some cute shoes (for Christmas…) and I would love to wear a pair for the party Saturday night!”


I don’t have that many parties to attend but…I plan on being prepared. You must understand, by now, that I love to sip-slurp-drink-down-guzzle-swig-enjoy-appreciate my over abundant amounts of COFFEE daily! “I wonder if I really need to add more to my routine!”. Thinking about it…I had better not. I don’t want to be know as the “Wife who could not stay out of the Ladies Room!

How many Christmas Parties do you have on your schedule? This “Social Butterfly” wishes she had a few more…but my hubby is a home-body and prefers to avoid the party circuit.

Have a great day!

Peach State says . . . Rainy Days and Mondays

Here we are at the beginning of the three week countdown until Christmas Break.  It has been raining all night and is still raining…

Jacob has decided that he hates school but is at least cheerful about it.  He just wants to go back to bed.  I wrapped his wrist and hand up this morning just to remind him that it still hurts.  The swelling has gone down but it is still tender.

Once Jon leaves, in about 30 minutes, I can carry on with the perfect activity for a day like this.  I will open my blinds in my office and curl up on my couch with Brittany.  Of course I will have to make sure she is not wet from going outside first.  The wind is blowing through the trees so they are gently swaying back and forth in an almost hypnotic way.  The leaves which remain on the limbs are brown now.  Dare I say it….They sky is gray…. Join me in song……The Mama’s and the Papa’s best song ever with The Carpenter’s..  Sounds like a good smash combo to me.  Rainy days don’t really get me down they just allow me the chance to reflect and not hurry through the day.

About 8:30 I will work on my book for a little while then move the laundry.  Ewww…Laundry!  At least the amount I have to do is very little now that the boys all do their own, except for Jacob.  He has a couple of years before this responsibility is his.  I will go over my solos for the upcoming five weeks and Christmas Eve Service when Justin gets up.  We only have one more practice because of Back to Bethlehem starting on the 3rd.  I have 3 solos and the two trio songs to learn well.  That is as it stands now. The Ladies Quartet is not singing for Christmas Eve so we may turn to a trio song.  Then it is off to the pantry to plan dinner.  My family loved the leftover turkey meal last night.  Justin asked if we could have it again and I gladly replied “after Christmas”.  HEHE!

I think a Christmas movie in on the schedule today…before Jacob gets home.  The weather should cooperate and be rainy all day.  If the temps drop we may have a mix tomorrow.  That will be another conversation….Love you cuz and have a great day.
