This Christmas, I did not…
…bake as much as I wanted.
—write holiday cards, for the first time in… a lot of years. I don’t think I’m going to get them written in January, either. (Sorry, Jen!)
—get holiday cards from everyone I usually receive cards from. Hmm… does this mean I only get a card if I send a card?
—receive any present I will regift next year. Honest!
—put up all the lights we intended to put up. Maybe next year.
—sleep in on Christmas morning or take a nap Christmas day. I got up quite early and stayed up quite late. Oh my.
—avoid injury while making Christmas eve dinner. I sustained one cut and one burn, but I didn’t mind. Such injuries placate the cooking gods, thus insuring an excellent meal.
—go to midnight mass. Every year I think I might, every year I don’t. Like the lights, maybe next year.
—watch “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” I don’t know how I missed it, but I did.
—think about Christmases past (too much), which is a good thing.
—like the rainy, mid-60s weather.
—feel guilty for not doing everything I wanted to do. For a change.
