Good morning! Welcome to the “Saturday Before Christmas!”
Apparently, today is being dubbed “Super Saturday” because the stores are supposed to be crazy. I heard on the news that it is expected to be bigger than both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. That just seems crazy but I guess everyone will be out trying to get their last minute gifts bought and everything wrapped up for next week. Me? I still have tons of time! I mean, I have tomorrow, Monday night and Tuesday night…and, maybe, even Wednesday morning. I can totally get everything finished before then! Procrastination at its best.
Speaking of procrastination, my dad is coming up today and we are going to get our Christmas trees. My parents and I both get real trees and always leave them up until at least January 6th, when we celebrate the Epiphany, so we usually get them pretty late in the season. My mom has to work today so she is trusting my dad to pick out the perfect one. They’ve been together for almost 30 years so, by now, I’m pretty sure he knows what she wants. At least, let’s hope. I’m always so picky when it comes to picking out a tree so let’s hope that I can find one I like…even though it’s less than a week before Christmas. It’s fine.
Yesterday afternoon, I had my post-op appointment from my surgery on Wednesday. My surgeon said everything went great and everything looks good! I have a follow-up eye appointment in four weeks and…I can, officially, wear eye makeup again in nine days!! I cannot wait…it was the hardest part of the process, I swear.
After the hubs and I left my appointment, we grabbed some lunch and headed home. He wanted to sleep before he had to leave for work (we hate night shift) and I had a date with my mom to get some Christmas crafting done! I had plans to etch glasses for everyone in our office and that’s exactly what we did! I etched mugs as favors for our wedding last year so I had the etching process down! However, last night, I found I was a little bit rusty. After I got into a rhythm, though, I got all of them done in about an hour! I think they turned out great, too!
#1. We have a weird mustache obsession/inside joke our office, hence, the mustaches.
#2. I am pretty positive my coworkers don’t know about my blog so they won’t see them here!
Okay! So, I’m off to do lots of holiday stuff! I might even venture out to the mall even though I’m anticipating craziness! We have our annual holiday party tonight at our neighbor’s and I can’t wait! It’s not really an ‘ugly sweater party’ but I think my hubs might be planning on wearing one. Sometimes, I have no control over what he does and I feel like tonight will be one of those times.
Something to share: Christmas tree: real or artificial? Have you finished your holiday shopping?
