I’m happy to report that I finally feel like Thanksgiving is under control. The cornbread for the stuffing is done, the pumpkin pie has been baked, the turkey is brining, I’ve pretty much done everything I can to make tomorrow as easy as its gonna get. Hopefully this means I will sleep tonight.
There is also a tree standing in the living room. I figure its a month until Christmas, and I usually get it before Thanksgiving anyway, and it lasts past Christmas. This gives it time to fluff out before it gets lights and ornaments. I don’t know why I worry so much about getting the “live” trees as soon as possible. The things are cut a couple months ago and stored in cold houses. Does anybody out there get a “live” tree? When do you get yours? Of course, its also been in the 80’s here so I’m sure it doesn’t do them any good to sit out in that. I won’t panic over decorating or shopping, so maybe my panic is finished for the year? No, I’ll find something else to panic over.
For now, I relax, and keep plowing my way through my iTunes library, A-Z. Current music-Depeche Mode.
ETA. Its 4:55 am, and I’m still awake. I guess I’m just not supposed to sleep normally. In other news, listening to Diana Krall now. Soothing music.
