It's been raining all day here. Washing away all that wonderful Christmas snow. There goes my white Christmas. I was so tired I slept until 7am this morning! I put in 23 hours between Monday and Tuesday to get everything done so that I could go on vacation starting today. The good news ? I don't have to be back until 4am on the 5th. i am done with work for the year! Love how that sounds! I wrapped all my gifts this afternoon, realized I forgot something for my sister's boyfriend? don't know what to call him. Trust me he is very forgetable. I thought about driving to the liquor store to buy something genericish, but I figured on Christmas eve they would be just as crowded as the regular stores. Plus I didn't want to put on long pants. Sooo, yes, I am regifting. A Borders gift card. I am giving out a bunch of gift cards anyway. Just was having trouble getting into the whole Christmas spirit mood, so didn't want to shop. i did make my mom a cowl, gloves and hat, my sister and sister in law cowls, my daughter 2 cowls and socks. I got some 3 blind moose wine for a few people ( I really don't know the difference between different wines, always take the waiters suggestions when we go out, Curt doesn't drink wine so I only cook with it at home ( ok the cook sometimes finishes the bottle) ) so I kind of go for either pretty labels or funny names. I got my father in law a hobgoblin ale pint glass and pint gift set - once again funny name. I got my mom some cans of french escargot ( I can't stand the canned, made from fresh I can get behind.) but she loves them. I think I actually spent more time in PetSmart than in the people stores!
Now I'm watching Ice Age and cleaning. What fun (sarcasm).. Dnner's in the crockpot ( whoever invented those should be sainted or knighted or something)
Anyway - check out this link to a great knitted Christmas poem
