It's official

Well it is official... Christmas is coming........

Yesterday was my staff luncheon - we went out to a local restaurant that they all raved about........ and had ..in my humble opinion..... a mediocre meal for a whole mess of money.... but the really important thing was to get everyone around one table laughing and talking and relaxing and sharing.......

Today i will finish up the last bit of paper work that needs to be done before school ends for the Christmas break tomorrow.......... And then this afternoon.. ohhhhhh this afternoon !!! we will be having a Christmas party for approximately 200 + kiddies .. with old fashioned Christmas games. It came to my attention - especially this year - how kiddies don't play games at birthday parties anymore.. they play WII or Nintendo or D/S (not my form of D/s but the newest game boy) that just won't do in my opinion........ it won't nope no way.... so i have organized a mess of games like pass the santa hat without using your hands..... the snowball race where the teams must put on mittens pick up a plastic spoon .. place a 'snowball' (a styrofoam ball actually ) on the said spoon and make their way to the other end of the gym and back without dropping the snowball and without touching it ......... there is the "where is santa's sleigh" game.. and the "freeze" game and "sticky popcorn game"... and then the Grande Finale.. where each child will be given a small parcel and i will read them a special Christmas story.... and every time i say the word RIGHT they must pass the gift to the RIGHT and every time i say LEFT the gift must be passed to the LEFT and when the story is done.. the gift they are holding is their gift............ and hopefully god willing and schedules running according to plan.. their parents should all be there to pick them up and take them home !!!

Then i will rush home and change into "party clothes" (which are a BIG difference from work clothes) and head out to the BIG staff party at another local restaurant.....

And then Friday and the last few hours of excited kiddies waiting .. just waiting.. almost holding their breath until the final bell rings at 1:00 and they all scurry off for a 2 week break...........

and Sir will be coming............. that is the most important thing.. Sir will be coming for the holidays........ for Christmas feasts.. one here with the kids and their significant others (well the ones that don't have to work) and with the "ex" - the girls' father (first time in nearly 15 years that he and i have broken bread - so to speak under the same roof ) .. and Tuesday Christmas day with my grandbabies.. and that is a first - an exciting first.. spending actual Christmas day with my kiddlets ...

our local radio station has a plug they play "Home for Christmas" and i just heard it as i was typing this...... and thought "yes i AM going home for Christmas" this year....... and it feels so right....... i will have my kids .. and grandkids and Sir all around me.. it will be my own Normal Rockwell painting !!! and there will be peace and goodwill (and if there isn't .. i will hit someone!!!)

And so as i head out into my day......... i have warm warm fuzzies growing inside..it's official......... Christmas IS indeed coming !!!!

Today was my last day with my kiddos. Tonight was the last "Board" meeting at Master's agency for the year. T has worked her last day until after Christmas... I think that we might, finally be able to breathe a bit and enjoy the holiday together.

Wishing you and your Sir and all the assorted loveys a joyous Christmas...
