Friday, With Feeling

Filed under: Interstellar Casa,It's Me, Lass — by InterstellarLass @ 1:25 pm

Phew. I was in training for two days this week. That was fun. Sort of. The hotel was in a rather skanky part of town, which made me a little suspect about the training itself, but I was pleasantly surprised and it wasn’t that bad. Plus I got a free book and a professional membership. Well, it was included with the class I should say. Which my company paid for.

Christmas is just a little more than three weeks away. And it’s 78F outside right now. There is something wrong with this picture. I also have no tree up, no lights up, and no shopping done. Again, I slack until the last possible Christmas minute. So this weekend will be a tree-trimming, house-lighting weekend. I don’t know when I’m going to go shopping. Budget is an issue this year, and fortunately we ‘drew names’ for the adults in the family. So that will make it a bit easier, but will slightly diminish the holiday feeling for me.

I’ll probably end up hosting Christmas again this year. Which Nick doesn’t like. I host everything. It’s just logistically easier for me to do. Last year we compromised, and we had the morning to ourselves and did a Christmas dinner with the family. Hopefully that will suffice again this year. Poor Nick. He puts up with so much. I love him to pieces.


  1. I’m way behind too. think Santa would help us girls out?

  2. I just decorated this weekend, I have very little shopping completed and I am hosting dinner to. Thankfully it will only be for 5 instead of half a million like for Thanksgiving. Make sure you schedule vacation immediately following the holidays, you’re going to need it.

    Get Nick something extra special for Xmas since he’s being such a good guy.

  3. If it makes you feel better, I don’t have a tree up, either. I kept thinking I might break down and buy a new tree this year, but it doesn’t look like it’s gonna happen.

    I have purchased exactly five gifts.

    And, of course, I have two Festivus poles for the first time ever 🙂

  4. It’s understandable that you aren’t completely ready. YOu are a busy girl. My house seems to get volunteered for a lot of stuff too. I understand. Most times, I like it, but sometimes I get annoyed.

  7. Drawing name is the way to go… I hate having to buy for the adults… I mean, don’t we all just sort of pick stuff up throughout the year as we need/want/it’s on sale?

    I’m with Bone and need to set up my Festivus Pole.

  8. Not having a gifting holiday this year. No place to put the gifts, family’s homeless. Ah well. *smile*

    Not like there would be any time for it anyway, right?
