Worked today....kinda hectic...had to do some interviews and organizing. Took wifey out to eat tonight and then to Starbucks.

Tomorrow, it's going to be a lazy day. I'm going to lay around and watch movies. First, it will be the Hobbit, the Zero Dark Thirty...and then....drumroll.....

Christmas Movies!!!

Other than that, I just am going to cook something for supper tomorrow night that will brighten up wifey's day...some kinda comfort food...

He really is!!! It is so good to know that I can go to at least one place and hear a Christmas song a day and pass the countdown in this way. I am not sure if it helps Xmas pass the time, but it sure does something for me! I think I will start a new tradition for myself: Listen to the song each day AND THEN on Rudolph Day, try to listen to that month's songs! That way, I would have something to really look forward to. On Rudolph Day, I could listen to the songs for that particular month in the background as I read the posts on the Countdown! Thanks, Xmas!
You're welcome, like I have said it has been fun to search for a different song a day, sometimes tedious, to find a "lost" or forgotten song and share it is what I like best. The discoveries I have made have really opened my eyes to quite a few songs.

Our youngest doesnt want to play football this year so that will free up a good amount of time for me so that will allow for more time to enjoy the season. There was also some family drama that didnt help either.

This year WILL be better as I am already feeling it. A couple gift have already been bought, got more gift ideas written down and started planing for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Well I hope everyone has a great day!
Nice to see you, Minta. I hope you get to fully enjoy the upcoming holidays more this year.

Ha, I kind of made that sound bad in the above post

Looking back, Shannon & I always say that we feel so bad for any stress we put our parents through!!
I love my kids more than anything in the world, even when they are driving me beyond bonkers.
