Thursday Thirteen #15

Thirteen Reasons there will be
no Thursday Thirteen today....


1. I have about fifty presents to wrap (or so it seems)

2. I am having a cookie-decorating party this afternoon with my children and their friends (Akk!) Ten children. Hundreds of cookies. Icing in all colors of the rainbow. Sprinkles of all shapes and sizes. (do you hear me screaming?)

3. I still have one more (no, two) (no, make that three) gifts to buy

4. I have to make something to eat to take to a party tonight

5. I have to send out Christmas cards

6. But before I do that, I have to buy them

7. And before I do that, I have to write the obligatory family newletter (obligatory this year because I have to remind people about my book coming out January 2)

8. I have to make breakfast for the kids (who are just now waking up, yay, which meant I got to sleep in today, yay!, which is why this post is late)

9. I have to go to the grocery store to buy whatever it is I decide to make for Christmas Eve dinner

10. I have to write a few checks that need to go in the mail before the end of the year

11. Going to the bank is a good idea today too

12. I have to make sauerbraten for Christmas, which means I have to make the marinade today so the meat can "sauer"

13. I actually have to figure out what we're going to eat on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (I will probably do this before I do #9...but not guaranteed.)

....so that is why there will be no Thursday Thirteen today!

It helps not having bought the presents yet to wrap!

Er, maybe it doesn't. :-)

Whiskey? Sounds great, thanks May.

I feel better already! Think the kids' parents will notice my red nose and glassy eyes when they pick them up today?

Yikes! Good luck with that list. I have to do a few of those today also, but just add leave for Florida @ 9pm to the list, so I've got a pretty tight deadline.

Good luck with your day!!! Merry Christmas!

Colleen, I hope you're not serious about all of these To-Do's! My ulcer flared up just reading them!

Good luck!!

Too bad you didn't have time for TT this week, but this was an enjoyable post, too. At least for me. It sounds like a busy, busy, busy day for you.

I hope you've visited my blog this week. You will have noticed that I received your book. Thank-you so much, Colleen. You are terrific.

Merry Christmas!
