you might think

Because I haven't posted since Sunday night, you might be tempted to think that I've been busily shopping and wrapping and baking and card-writing and candymaking.

Sorry, but you'd be wrong.

You might have thought I was working myself skinny in the basement, sorting and tossing and storing, even spackling or sanding or painting.

Alas, you would be wrong again.

After my shopping last weekend, I've felt satisfied that I am so far ahead of my usual Christmas pace that I can take it easy for a few days. So I have.

Last night, Jack and I went to a party with my coworkers. We enjoyed a tasty dinner and lots of laughs, and the gifts we took for the gift exchange were the hit of the evening.

Who knew adults could get so excited about a pen that shocks you when you try to use it or a 'bullsh*t' button that hollers smartypants remarks when you push it? Seriously, I work with nine-year-old boys.

This might explain to me why I have been kicked out of my nest to fly on my own!

I hope I make it to 10 soon!
