So, today I'm Domestic Supergoddess for half the day. My little guy has a bug of some sort - not quite a stomach bug (thank GOD!) but not right either. Stomach ache, headache, and just blah. So not like him to not want to go to school, believe it or not; so I'm home with him until later this afternoon because at this time of year - I need to be at the store for a few hours anyway. So right now, the house has been vaccumed with the floors washed, laundry is going - and the little guy and I are just hanging out relaxing and watching some fun kids game shows on Cartoon Network. It's been quite nice just relaxing which is something I don't often get to do.
I switched the fall decorations outside to winter too; I promised the kids I'd hang the icicle lights when I get home later, so we will have the outside ready for winter. We're not putting the tree up until Friday night, which is late for us - but still, plenty of time for the holiday. After the drama with practically decapitating my toes with the tree base a few weeks ago, I'm in no rush to bring it downstairs.
I should really run this morning before going to work; I may just do that actually. I've been putting it off and putting it off - but I do need to get back into the swing of things; and with having to put yoga on hold for a few more weeks because of the holiday, no better time than now to hit the treadmill.
This morning I also finalized my holiday menu; I found out last night I'm going to have 16 adults and 4 children, so I've opted to not go quite so complicated on the menu this year. I believe the menu will be as follows: Appetizers (cheese ball, crackers, smoked salmon & cream cheese), Shrimp Cocktail, Lobster Bisque, Salad, Sausage Stuffed Peppers, Lasagna (special request!), Honey of a Ham (I haven't bought one of those in years, and I think I want to get one this year...they're freaking spectacular), and Tenderloin Beef. Of course, roasted potatoes & eggplant and probably Sweet Potatoes.
I love, love, love a full house on Christmas. It's truly the most wonderful time of the year....
