Last year was wonderful, but there were definitely aspects of Christmas Eve that I didn't enjoy. That Husby was doing laundry on Christmas Eve, that we had to go grocery shopping on Christmas eve, that we didn't get to the Christmas Eve service.
I have a problem with expectations. Whenever I put expectations on things it goes badly. So last year I had a no expectation expectation of Christmas Eve, and guess what? It went badly!
This year I am not trying to define Christmas Eve. I went grocery shopping at 7am on Saturday morning and stocked up. I have been doing laundry like a crazy person and stopped when my machine turned into a pumpkin last night. The dishes are done, thank you Husby!
I hope to get a little crafting done with Toby - I see finger paint in our future.
I hope to get to the Christmas Eve service.
The day will end, as always, with Chinese food. The only big deal for me this year is that I have become my mother in law and will be wrapping presents while Santa is still making his deliveries.
What are your plans this fine Christmas Eve?
