- 4:45 p.m.
Before my AMAZING girlfriend/same-sex partner/lady-lover/meal-ticket & meal-preparer (different than a tax preparer) catches me in here.
I've been PEELING POTATOES (which, quite frankly, always seemed like a punishment that was handed out in old movies and TV shows... they'd show some poor fella/fellow peeling potatoes sitting on an upside-down milk crate)... and I'm a-peelin a-lotta potatoes. Potatoes for twenty.
That's right, you heard me.
The whole FAMILY of MINE. Both parents... all siblings but one, and 7 little neices and nephews. That's FAMILY, party of TWENTY.
I, of course, have been "dry-running" and pre-pre-pre planning for a few days. Purchasing many small activity items to keep the SEVEN LITTLE NEICES and NEPHEWS occupied and entertained (plus a bonus screening of FINDING NEMO after dinner, then we'll write LETTERS TO SANTA).
The ADULTS.. they're on their own.
I'm hoping for the best... and planning for a close-second to the best. We'll see what happens.
Sending ALL OF YOU... AMAZING community of readers and supportive humans... a wonderful holiday... with your friends and families.
Me... I'm just plain thankful.... and all of y'all are included in that.... so, yeah. There.
