Tropical holidays, here I come…it may take me a while to get to there, but you can count on the fact that I will be sticking my feet in the warm sand.
So far, my Holidays have been hectic! No, I haven’t been dealing with the hassle of traffic and shopping. No…I’ve had it worse than that.
What could be worse, you ask. We recently discovered a foundation leak in our home. Yep, that’s right, now we know why we haven’t had to turn on our heater, yet. And let me say that if radiant floor heating works that well, I’m good with it. LOL
Oh, don’t feel bad. It is what it is…someone once said, “welcome to the joys of being a homeowner". Boy, they sure left out a lot from that statement.
Anyways, my saving grace through this nightmare before Christmas is that Christmas will soon be here and that means one thing…Stinky Feet! Oops, sorry, I mean Beautiful Feet.
For the last, oh, I don’t know 5, 6, 7 years, our tradition has been to get up at the butt-crack of dawn on Christmas day and start cooking the turkey while we prepare breakfast for 400+ people (children included). Yup, you guessed it. We volunteer at a local soup kitchen.
Don’t misunderstand, I hate getting up so early. I’m cranky and bitchy, but when that first kid comes through the line, even my “Grinch” softens up. It helps to put things into their proper perspective for me. Do I recommend volunteering at a soup kitchen on Christmas day? You betcha! It’s an experience you’ll never forget! I promise.
Speaking of, what are your Christmas Traditions?
