Make Memories, Not Headaches

May I be the umpteenth person to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah, 'cause I'm sure I'm not the first!

Are you ready? Shopping done? House decorated? Gifts wrapped? Cards addressed? Cookies baked? You know the drill. I’m happy to say that I’ve accomplished most of that; however, my cards are unfinished, the flour and chocolate chips still sit in the cupboard, and the outside laser lights still sit in the shed. All in due time, folks, all in due time.

Since we move slower these days, I’m surprised at what’s already been accomplished. If the rest doesn’t get done, so be it. I have it on good authority that Christmas will come whether or not I have dozens of cookies made!

We’re having fun watching Shadow and Charlie goad each other. Charlie flies over Shadow’s head, then Shadow barks at him. One runs around the house and the other flies around the house. Between the barking and chirping, there’s never a dull moment around here.

May your Christmas or Hanukkah be spent with family and friends making precious, meaningful memories and stepping back to remember what’s important.
