We had our first Christmas celebration on the weekend with Sir Steve's daughter and family. The family comes with a 2 year old.... a rather spoiled 2 year old....which means there was a lot of screaming (ear piercing screaming) and a lot of "NO's".
The only saving grace was the lil one. Her mother let her come to the celebration. The littlest one loves our little one.... and will do just about anything our lil one asks. They eventually went off and played in our lil one's bedroom (at least the screaming wasn't as loud!!) We feasted ... and opened gifts... and visited. It was really quite nice everything considered. Sir Steve's daughter gave me........................
Are you ready for this??
and of course I loved it! What's not to love - it's a gnome!! They left late afternoon and Sir Steve took the lil one home to her mother.
a storm arrived .......... a wind and rain storm. I don't like wind storms. I don't really know why......... but I get extremely anxious during wind storms. AND this was one helluva wind storm!! Winds gusting up to (apparently) 100kms an hour!! It sounded like the world was coming to a crashing end. Our dog - who sleeps through thunder and lightening and fireworks and all loud noises - was SO stressed with the wind. She kept barking and whining. Our power went out - came back and then went out again.
GAH! talk about stress and anxiety!!
We made it through to Sunday though! in one piece!
Sunday saw Sir Steve out and about running Christmas messages and I sat and wrapped gifts for our next Christmas celebration which is this coming Saturday at youngest daughter's house.
I keep telling myself I LOVE this time of the year -- the busyness of it .... the baking... the gifts.... the company. Know what I miss??? spankings and sex....... something has to fall by the wayside right? There's just not enough time for everything................ BUT ......... I do miss the spankings and sex.
