The errands have been culled to manageable levels. Gift cards for teachers and therapists? Done. Food shopping at Fairway? Done. Cookies UPS-ed to the aunties and uncles? Done. Presents for children, husband, in-laws, parents, nieces? Done. Bathtub scrubbed? Done. New Year's Cards ordered? Done. Christmas Eve menu finalized? Done.
Tomorrow, I'll cook twelve fish for a small group of twenty. We're adding a seafood risotto this year, and the hubby is excited.
Right now, I'm quite happy to set aside the errands and catch up on all the yummy gossip. Look Tiger Woods is getting a divorce. Oooh. And Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins split up. The tox-screen from Brittany Murphy is coming soon.
I'm signing off for a few days. If you celebrate Christmas, enjoy. If you don't, enjoy the empty theaters and take out Chinese food.
