Yesterday, Kev and I sat down and made a list of all the small things that I need to get done, from the emissions test on my car to planting some paperwhite bulbs to filing IRS forms for DesiLit, etc. and so on. I was, for some reason, trying to keep most of it in my head instead of on iCal -- oh, right, because I'd started avoiding looking at iCal out of guilt at how behind I was -- and it was just overwhelming. He helped me plow through a few items last night, and I've already done some more today. I have foolish hopes of finishing most of the list by the end of the week. We'll see.
Sadly, he's going out of town tomorrow night for work; will be gone until Friday, missing T-giving. V. sad. But on the plus side, my sister and various friends are coming over for potluck, and I'll be making turkey and my favorite cornbread stuffing and those pillsbury croissants and cranberry sauce and it'll all be yummy. We'll use the fancy china and crystal and it'll be spiffy. :-) And after that, I get to start putting up Xmas decorations, which make me ridiculously happy. I love the holidays.
I admit, I did start singing "The Holly and the Ivy" yesterday, breaking my usual rule of waiting 'til after T-giving. I couldn't help it. It made me happy.
And the rising of the sun,
And the running of the deer,
The playing of the merry organ,
Sweet singing in the choir...
