This and That

December 4th, 2014 at 06:49 am

I really just wanted to crash when I got home last night, but I forced myself to put in a load of laundry, then went over to check on the grandsons. My DIL's mom kindly gave me supper and then gave me a new Christmas tablecloth she never used. It's a red tartan plaid, very nice. It may not be long enough for my new table, but perhaps I can angle it over another cloth.

When I came home, I finished up the laundry and loaded and ran the dishwasher.

I still have so much to do before I fly out of town on Monday, and Saturday will be completely taken up with babysitting. But it felt good to at least get one load of laundry done and get the dishes cleaned.

This morning I bought a muffin and a banana at Corner Bakery for $3. Cheaper than a muffin and coffee! Why was I always buying coffee? I still have the banana for a mid-morning snack. I grabbed some pizza from the freezer, so I won't have to buy lunch.

I realized yesterday I will miss the big (interdepartmental) holiday party at work. I don't mind so much except that it is always a wonderful brunch. I never win any of the awesome raffle prizes!

Our unit is pretty lackluster about holiday parties, so I'm lucky in that there is no gift exchange or carry-in to worry about. I will bring food for the food bank drive, however.

Tomorrow is the College's Christmas concert. I do believe I will try to make it to that. I don't think there is any other inspirational program on my docket this year. And, of course, it's free!

    Just out of curiosity, is there a concern you have with your daughter-in-law's mother? Why do you feel it necessary to go and check on them when they are over there?

    Oh no, she's wonderful! I guess I didn't explain -- I am doing this because my DIL asked me to -- she's worried about her mom doing too much, getting too tired, etc.

    I was very happy to learn today that my office doesn't "do" gift exchanges. We do have a Christmas breakfast/lunch that is put on by the union I think on Christmas Eve day. I believe there is some kind of raffle thing then.
