Holidays make me crazy. I'm very much a creature of habit and I'm very happy when I'm on a regular schedule. So in order to cope, I've taken to writing lists before any holiday or other event that might mess with my calm. After taking this photo, I realized that my initial holiday list was populated entirely with food concerns -- what to have for Christmas dinner, our family progressive dinner, Christmas morning and other various holiday goodies.
In other holiday news, the tree is up and decorated. Of course there was a last minute problem with the lights that resulted in Pete & I running all over town looking for replacements. I'm sure this doesn't happen every year, but it sure feels like it does. I'm happy with the new lights and they have a 2 year warranty, so I suppose next year the light situation won't be a problem.
