We interrupt Christmas preparation for a nap....


I believe I may be ready for the holiday. I think I could have been ready days ago, but P and I have chosen to do a little at a time. I am trying to de-stress myself. I think if I get any more de-stressed I will need to hire PugPosse to refinish me!


Today I did something my mother would faint over if she were alive to faint....I ordered Christmas Eve dinner! Yes, ordered the dinner...dinner for 14 Punchy coming on up. Now actually I ordered dinner for 10 as I am actually still making my Seafood Newburg and Rice. P says he hopes I am not unhappy with what someone else thinks dinner for 10 should look like. I just know I am not up to the prep, the mess and the doctor says NO DISHES for another week. Darn, and I so wanted to do dishes. He also said no hot tubs or pools, but since Norman's hot tube has not been installed yet, and our pool is covered and frozen over, I don't think either of those will be a problem. But back to the dinner. Because of the second visit we must do Christmas Eve, I have made dinner appetizers at 4ish, dinner at 5. I like perfect. I like the food, the timing, the table, everything to be PERFECT. So I ordered dinner...lol


Oh, by the way I bought paper plates too! Now let me say I bought expensive paper plates, oh and matching napkins...and because I felt a tiny bit lazy about the dinner and the paper, P bought me "chargers" for the table. So the paper plates won't look, you know....like paper. Oh, yeah, and now I'm off to nap....

Punchy that is a great idea and very fitting for this year because of your operation. Maybe you will like it so much and it destresses you so much that you will do it again! I think paper plates are great...even though I have a lot of china plates but paper plates are so pretty too..especially with matching napkins. I wish I could try your seafood newburg...yummy. I know next year, I'll be having Christmas here, I think. I'm off the hook this year!!

I agree, I do hope the food turns out! Everyone says my Newburg is awesome. I make it a little different each year, but the same basic ideas. Usually, I change up the seafood part. Maybe I'll do a post about creating it....

Lisa, if we both hoped in our cars it would take half as long! LOL

You must listen to the doctor. Mom would love to tell dad about the dishes, since she is the one who usually does them. Don't feel guilty about ordering dinner, you have to do what you have to do.

I love it! Since my ordeal last year and moving this year I have learned that

A)I don't have to make everything myself

B)Someone else can clean my house (I like this one very much)

C)Paper plates are a gift from God. Also plastic utensils.

Life is short, enjoy every minutes of it.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Good for you! One year we went out to a nice resturant. Different, but good food!

Don't feel bad for ordering dinner. You need to take it easy with your hand. How is your hand by the way? Did you get your stiches out?
