After the morning mess is cleared, the preparations for dinner typically begins and I am a basket case trying to get everything done and manage to get a shower...........not this year. We took a little field trip this year to the ER. This was not in my plan. My daughter was having a reaction to her medication and giving her a scary irregular heart beat, so time to change plans. After getting checked out and some peace of mind, we headed home making the turkey about 2 hours later than planned. You know what.......who cares.
So this Christmas won't be right on schedule, the candles won't be lit around the house and I won't be putting any makeup on and my hair will be in a ponytail........I don't care. With a lot of help from the crew, we finally sat down to a wonderful dinner and enjoyed our wonderful family. It turned out to be the most laid back stress free Christmas evening I can remember.
