Santa’s bag

Day 19 Christmas countdown. It’s so close! I want to scream, “SANTA!” like Buddy the Elf. If you haven’t seen “Elf” stop reading this post and immediately download it and watch it. It is hysterical.

When I was little Christmas took forever to get here. As an adult it seems to come pretty quickly. My kids are asking me if I’m excited for Christmas. Um excited isn’t the word. I still have to finish shopping, food shop, make food, bake, wrap too many presents, make sure everyone has something to wear, (thank you to my husband who will iron the clothes), pack the car, make sure we leave for mass on Christmas Eve in time to get a seat, spend the entire mass trying not to cry that my dad passed away and isn’t taking up the collection, unpack the car at my sister’s, heat up the food, and then, then I’ll be excited.

With that list, you may be wondering, “why is she spending so much time painting?” 😂

  1. Wow! Sounds like you need to rent a Santa’s helper for a couple of days!! 😉 Sorry for the loss of your dad. Did it happen recently? I always remember my mom around Christmas time especially as it was her favorite time of year. She has been gone for 17 years. xo

    1. My dad passed in July. He was diagnosed on Dec. 23rd last year. I got to spend a lot of quality time with him during his treatment. I’m so thankful for that extra time. He always, always made me laugh. Sorry about your mom. I’m beginning to realize how these losses stick with us forever. ❤️ Thanks Jill

      1. I’m glad you got to spend some quality time together. Sounds like you had a special relationship. ❤️ My mom and I got to reconnect in the last 6 months of her life. I always hold this memory close to my heart. It is a very special gift. 💖✨🎁
