Christmas is the sneaky holiday

Um, so Christmas is a week away, and I only realized its proximity this morning. I'm kind of off my game because we had all the snow at the beginning of the month, and now it's all melty and warm and feels like spring. It doesn't make me think of jingle bells and Frosty the snowman.

I think we have two family Christmas parties this Saturday, two on Christmas morning, and we usually get together with Nick's dad and stepmom and brother and sister-in-law on Christmas Eve, but we haven't gotten around to making those plans yet. Because Christmas is sneaky and looks deceptively far away.

I'm also planning for Femiknitter's visit on Wednesday (woohooo!), and our trip to Michigan for New Year's Eve to see all our friends in one place (woohooo!), and possibly seeing my friend Tony who has been on a US Navy destroyer lo these many months (woohooo?). We are busy people this time of year, even if we didn't see this whole Christmas thing coming.

Hopefully, I'll have some time to work on something so I can show you that I do indeed remember how to knit. Stay tuned, as next time you'll hear all about my annual clothes-shopping excursion, the sordid tale of our car and the Illinois Secretary of State, and how I act when I get drunk now that I'm a knitter.

Yeah, it's nasty how it tiptoed up behind us all like that. I think Christmas day being on a Monday doesn't help matters either.

Beware of drunken knitting (is that like the ides of march?)! Though I am, of course, eager to hear the story! :-)

I don't know, I seem to read patterns better when I'm drunk. Go fig.

Yeah, this holiday was a sneaky one. I'm not sure we should trust it. It's got shifty eyes and everything.

Still, sneaky or not, I hope you enjoy it and find some time to knit, relax, and be merry any way you can. :-)
