I just spent two straight hours wrapping presents. But it's done, blessedly DONE. (And who designs those crazy-shaped toy boxes that can't be easily wrapped, anyway? The Grinch? Or perhaps the same malicious souls who design four-inch heels??)
Gift wrapping, check.
Cards mailed, check.
Grocery shopping for Christmas dinner, check.
Those were the last three major items on my pre-holiday to-do list. Hoping that means that I will actually be able to relax and enjoy the season for at least part of the next couple of days.
There's a lot of drama in my life right now, for various reasons. The pre-Christmas stress isn't helping. But today was a much better day overall: I even had time to go on a quick geocaching run this afternoon, something I haven't been able to do in a couple of weeks. Drove out to a park that has three caches I couldn't find the first time I went and found all three (go me!) then picked up one on a haunted covered bridge on the way home for good measure. Very cool.
The day after the solstice: the days are officially getting longer now. And merrier and brighter, too.
