Here at mi Casa we celebrate Christmas, only we haven't celebrated yet because both of my sons are at their bio dad's. I was hoping to get everyone in my house around the first part of January to celebrate, but it looks like that's not going to happen, either. Therefore, that tree I kept putting off and stressing over probably isn't going to go up after all. I really should move the laundry off the dining room table so I can put our gifts there, though. I may be the most terrible matriarch ever, but believe it or not, I do have the gifties wrapped!
It's really kind of hard to get into the spirit of things when you have family members anywhere but home. I did enjoy my Christmas, though:
I had the day off work so I slept late.
I watched Pitch Perfect more times than was necessary. But I really enjoyed it, which surprised me because I hate Glee and Smash and stuff like that.
Anyway, it was the perfect accompaniment to my Champagne Breakfast, party of one:
(Which, as you can see, consisted of mimosas and a slice of cheesecake on a pretty vintage platter. This one is Mildred by Mt. Clemens!)
Next week promises more of the same crazy retail schedule, and I am taking full advantage of it because hours will drastically wane between January and tax return time. It's just the nature of the business, and I am trying to get myself set up for the leaner times. Posting will be sporadic at most, but I will still make time to come by and see as many blog hop participants as possible, even if I don't get to participate.
And I will be doing my best to get a year-end review type post of some kind up at some point before 2013. It's been quite a year! Also working towards giving the blog a bit of a facelift. Not a major overhaul, but just a bit of sprucing up. We'll see.
