Christmas Eve -- 12/24/08

My eleventh entry for Holidailies so far this year...
(Just wander in from Holidailies? There's an introduction to the main characters down towards the bottom of the page... just scroll down.)

Christmas Eve at last.

Perhaps I should say "Christmas Eve so soon!" because of how unready we seemed to be, but I think we have caught up with things.

Uh, except the tree is still on the roof of my car in the driveway, but otherwise I think we are ready. LOL!

I have brought the ornaments up from the basement, but I don't think the tree is going to get set up until after dinner. Ah well, I am sure it will still look nice tomorrow morning. Since the baby of the family is a two hundred pound bearded 23 year old, Christmas morning is no longer a flurry of activity and childish cries of joy. Still, we do enjoy our Christmas morning rituals, opening presents, sipping coffee, enjoying being together.

Well, excuse me, but I have to cut this entry short so I can go get dinner started.

Merry Christmas!

An introduction for those of you wandering in here from Holidailies for the first time: I'm just a middle-aged guy (but somehow I hit 65 on my last birthday) who lives in Rhode Island with my wife Nancy (a middle-school math teacher), daughter Gillian ("Jill" -- 26 yr old baker and part-time college student), son Jeremy (23 yr old restaurant cook and part-time college student), and Tiger (senior citizen cat). Eldest child Adam lives in New York City with his wife Leah and our grandsons Sam and Milo. I'm a programmer/systems analyst who got involved with software training and instructional design. I currently work from home doing quality assurance and editing on course material for both classroom courses and Web- based training courses for a very big computer company. I've been writing this online journal since 1996.
