I finished it!
Not only did I finish it, I took a picture so that I might post it, after it is received.
And not only that, I packed - AND SHIPPED - it. (shipping is the single thing
that I do least well in life. I procrastinate....and procrastinate....if it is import-
ant that you receive it, ask Mr. Sweetheart to do it.)
It is now on it's way to Dayton. Via USPS. I was frustrated with Fed-Ex and
their authorized dealer, who added an additional $6 to the freight bill. So
it may take a few days. For $6, that's okay.
Then, I arrive home and I have 2 packages in my mailbox. As I was starting
to open the contents of a delivery from guavmom
, Nineteen asked
"Are you opening a Christmas present?" with an incredulous and
accusing tone of voice. Since I wasn't sure, they're now under the tree.
Also a package from Miss. Thank you wherrymotor
. Also, now, under
I made Chex Mix last night. It's not great. I made fuge tonight. It tastes too
sweet. I tried Egg Nog tonight. It tasted too sweet. Maybe I should go on a
fruit and veggies eating plan.
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. We'll be having spaghetti and meat sauce.
(So much for fruit and veggies.) When the boys were very little, we were
putting out cookies for Santa. Nineteen told me, very authoratatively -
"Mom! Santa wants spaghetti!" So I dutifully cooked some and put it on a
plate. Well, he was right. The next morning all the spaghetti was gone!
So we've been having spaghetti and meatsauce ever since. It's actually
quite easy on the cook and somehow does not interfere with any other
things that might be going on.
