I have returned to my sorely neglected blog. Getting ready for Christmas is slowing me down a little (among other happy things, to be discussed later). Last week was busy with work and Ben’s office holiday party and training and this week is the big swearing in. Finally. Can I tell you how much I’m looking forward to the end of this journey?? I think the occasion calls for a nice lunch out with the hubby. Children are not welcome at the ceremony so we’ll be flying solo.
I think that Chase’s gifts are all taken care of at this point and so is Ben’s. The kitchen will get assembled at the last second, the food is done and I bought a tea set that I will probably end up having second thoughts about. I also got her plates and pots to go with the kitchen and a few things for her stocking (most of which, much like her dad, she has already managed to find once or twice. I’m hoping that she doesn’t remember. I’m having enough trouble as it is grappling with the whole concept of santa and explaining it to her. It’s very strange to be on this side of the fence. I haven’t wrapped Ben’s gift yet or put it out, although I’d might as well just give it to him now because the man is so grinchy that a) he has already been able to intuit what I have selected for him or b) will spend all day guessing whenever a package arrives, it never fails.
I took some video the night we put up the tree and Ben shot some of Chase’s first class at Hoppin Tots. I had a brief love affair with vimeo because it links to facebook automatically but what about my 30 second video take 2 hours to process?? I’m sorry, but that’s just kooky.
