i don’t want to say that there’s not enough hours in a day. because that would mean that i would just end up spending even more of my daytime at work.
but hours in a weekend? yes, please. at least leading up to christmas.
i can’t believe the “biggest and best holiday of the year” (according to my 7 year old) is less than two weeks away.
thankfully, shopping has been done but now the dreaded part awaits – the wrapping. and i really wanted to start this past weekend but it was hard enough to fit time in to decorate the tree.
we did it though – i mean, we had to get pizza delivery just to get it done in time without a late bedtime for chaeli… but we did it.
we also kicked start the season with Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Cafe Christmas Show this past saturday. we went with new friends, p. & l. this year, something p. and i floated around as an idea last year.
a good idea it was! we met up for some yummy pub food at a local irish pub. the difference with this pub’s food is that it’s a bit more upscale without the upscale price.
then after the show, we went to another bar for some midnight snacking and beverages.
i can’t remember the last time doug and i stayed out until midnight. this is exactly why babysitting is required every now and then. i need to remember that!
it was such a fun night. and while the show was superb, my favourite times were more just the talking, laughing and general good merriment experienced by all.
