Checking My List Twice


Wooooh-I was up until after 1am this morning trying to move furniture, set tables, dust, windex and scrub away. Oddly it feels like a relief to be at work this morning. Of course, it’s the quiet before the storm so I’m working on my caffeine levels right now in preparation. There will be all kinds of awesome craziness today. When we close at 4:00 today, I will race my way to the house to start preheating ovens, scrubbing potatoes and massaging that beautiful beef tenderloin. Oh yeah…beef tenderloin. My framily will join us at 5:45 for appetizers and cocktails. Yes, I said framily-my favorite combo! Around 7:30 tonight my dad will cuddle up next to the fire and read, “Twas the Night Before Christmas” to the kiddos and my heart will melt and a tear will fill my eyes. So this morning I’m checking my list twice. Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukah! Happy Kwanza! Happy Holidays to everyone!
