FINALLY! Christmas time is here!! =) I'm so happy & excited & ready to spend time with the family! This week has been okay. We were allowed to leave work at 2:30 today, so that was nice! I was so glad! I came home (well, to mom & dad's - we are dogsitting for them while they're in Mississippi visiting their families) & me and hubby took a nap. We were OUT. I set my alarm for 6:00 & when it rang, i thought i'd slept past rehearsal! My heart jumped in my throat! I was sleeping sooo good. I had rehearsal from 7:30 to 9:10. Shortest rehearsal ever! The director just wanted to run through the show once since we have so many days off. We did that, it went well, and then i had to run to Walmart to get a few things. I am making Green Bean Casserole for Christmas dinner & i had to go get the stuff, plus a few other things. I could NOT find those onion ring thingies that go on top of the casserole! I spent so much time looking for them! Anyway, i couldn't BELIEVE how crowded Wal-Mart was. I know it's Christmas Eve Eve, but still - 10 pm on a Wednesday is not usually their busiest time. BUT MAN. It was SO BUSY! Anyway, i finally made it home (I still say home. It's my parent's home! HAHA.).
I can't wait for tomorrow. And the next day. I gotta tell ya - i truly LOVE spending so much time with hubby! LOVE IT. Tomorrow we're going to relax & have fun together! I bought a puzzle because for the last 3 or 4 months, i've been wanting to do a puzzle! I don't know why! So we bought a cute Christmas one & we're going to start on it tomorrow! We also have several episodes of Moonlight to watch (Moonlight is a vampire series Brad wanted me to see... so we're watching the entire series! It's a pretty cool show!) So we're going to do that, too. It'll be a GREAT DAY! At 5 or 6, we'll be going to Brad's Uncle Kenny & Aunt Annette's for Christmas with Brad's mom's side of the family. And then we plan to go to Brad's parents to exchange gifts - just the 5 of us. So that will be fun!
Christmas day we're going to do more of the puzzle, more tv watching, more relaxing!! And then at 2, we're having Christmas with Brad's Dad's side of the family!! I can't wait!!!
My sister is in England visiting her best friend. So we are having Christmas with my family when she gets back. She gets back the 28th, but i don't think we're having our Christmas till New Year's Day! But that will be fun too! I love it!
Sad news - i hate to even mention it in the midst of all this Christmas cheer. But i have to. Today there was a shooting right here in Baton Rouge. Well, in Central (a suburb of BR) where my parents live. An ex-employee went into a local construction business & started shooting. Apparently it was about his unemployment benefits. I mean, really?! He shot three women & two of them were killed. They were secreteries there. It is SO horrible, terrible. All i can think about is the families of those 2 women. One was in her 40's & one in her 50's, if i remember right. So i'm thinking of their husbands & children. God, be with them. It just breaks my heart.
Anyway. Sorry for the sad news, but please say a prayer for the families of those two women & for the employees/owner there!
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!! I can't wait to read all your blogs about it!!!
