Season of joy
Just one more day, and my son will be home for the holidays. He's in the middle of Basic Training and M.P. School for Army Reserves, and the whole family is excited to see him again. We won't get to see him after the holidays until his graduation in April. So I'm sticking the fridge with his fave foods, getting his area cleaned up, and his girlfriend and daughter are meeting him at the airport and bring him home.
Meanwhile, I'm finally getting organized for the holidays. Presents are bought and made, some even wrapped. Cards have been out for a few weeks already, and thank you cards from people who gifted me at work are postal. Turkey's in the freezer, ham's been ordered, trees are up, lights on, house decorated and music downloaded. Classes are over for the semester, meetings and parties finished, and there's enough snow to make it look pretty. Sigh! It's going to be a great Christmas!!
Joy to you and your family!
