On the Christmas front, I can't believe it but I did get two things done today.
1. Pk and I went and bought candy for decorating the gingerbread house.
2. I made another batch of shortbread for the cookie exchange at church on Sunday.
My biggest sadness right now it that I don't know how much we will be able to do this Christmas. We have a gorgeous tree in the garage and I don't know how I will get it in and set up on my own. I will find a way, I hope. We were set to host Boxing Day this year with both my family and Dh's family and we always do a rotisserie standing rib roast on the barbecue. Dh has insisted that we can still do it but I know what will happen - the "we" will become me and I just don't have it in me. I have said that everyone can come but they won't get roast beef. I am thinking of getting a whole bunch of peel and eat shrimp, shrimp appetizers, smoked salmon, nice cheese, bread and a veggie tray and people can manage with that (or cook for themselves). I love Christmas and am sad it will have to be scaled back this year but at least I still have Dh. I tried not to think about it but when they were so late bringing him back to his room after the surgery, I had a few very anxious minutes.
