Guess What I’m Doing For Christmas?

Da Goddess @ 23:32


Yep. You betcha. The family I work for has been trying to close on their new house and the very kind people at the mortgage company have stalled and stalled so that we get to move Christmas weekend.

I don’t mind the moving part that much. I won’t have to do any lifting. I’ll help clean the new place and unpack, but everything else is being done by other people. I’m happy that I’ll be able to get the rest of my belongings that have been stored at friends’ homes. But I’m bummed that this delay (which we had no idea how long it would last) has meant that Little Dude’s visit couldn’t be scheduled and, thus, I have no way to bring him out for the week after Christmas as we’d hoped.

So, I’m missing LD and my Mojo and the rest of my family. Things have been hectic around here and Christmas cards/gifts aren’t going to be sent until after Christmas. That’s just the way it goes, I guess.

LD has been extremely awesome about the change in plans. We talked twice today, the first while he was at my mom’s baking cookies (chocolate with ancho chiles amongst others, which he says he loooooves), and then again after he got back to his dad’s house. He heard the baby in the background and asked if it was a cat. “No, that’s the baby.” “Oh, he sounded like a cat.” Then the baby started babbling, as babies are wont to do, and LD giggled. “Okay, he sounds like a baby now. He sounds cute, too. I can’t wait to meet him.” Oh, my dear son, I can’t wait for you to meet him, too. I know they’ll get along great. LD is a baby whisperer of sorts. Kids of all ages love him. Soon, my son, soon. February.

And there you have my grand plans for Christmas. What do you have going on?


  1. I hope your move goes smoothly and with as little stress for you as possible. Plus, I hope that you and yours have a fabulous Christmas and new year once you’re settled.

  2. Merry Christmas!! Hope you have a good one and that the moving goes well.

    Hugs to the kids when you see them! I know that it feels like forever, but… {{HUGS}}

  4. Thanks! I think we go in tomorrow to clean and start lining cupboards and such. At least, I hope that’s what we we’re doing.
