Want to know why I like to get my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving? So this doesn’t happen…
Saturday night was our church Christmas party, and I think we had about 75 people packed into my little house. It was a wonderful night! This is the whole reason I wanted to have my own house, so that I could use it to bless other people. And somehow, by the grace of God, there wasn’t a single spill, stain, or spot on anything. Now that’s a miracle!
My next party will be a wedding shower for a good friend in January. I ordered the invitations tonight–I can’t wait!
Tomorrow I’m hosting my church Christmas party at my house. I can’t wait. I’ve been looking forward to this all month. My Christmas lights are up (and working… hopefully), my house is fully decorated, and I have dozens of freshly decorated Christmas cookies waiting to be served.
I was planning to get my piano tuned so we could do a Christmas carol sing-along, but I got busy, and someone told me that might be cheesy. I love it when they do that in movies–when they sing around a piano, usually wearing turtle necks and drinking cocoa and smiling knowingly at each other.
I really should go to bed. It’s 1:00 a.m. and I have to get up in six hours to hear one of our doctors get interviewed on a local radio show. I really wish he could have been on around 10, because tomorrow would have been a good day to sleep in.
Yesterday I decorated my new house with Christmas lights. I feel a special connection to Clark Griswald, because they look GREAT when they’re not on. When they’re on, half of them look great, and half don’t work. But I’m working on that…
