People I don't know dressed like Santa and eating pizza.
So, my plan tonight was to wash my bathroom walls and start taping them for my next painting project. The only problem with that is that I've been neglecting my normal cleaning duties with all of these projects. So, I took the evening off from painting prep to get all crazy and clean the kitchen and do some laundry. It should work better this way, though. I can clean and tape the walls tomorrow, put the primer on the next night and try to paint it earlier in the day on Christmas Eve. Then on Christmas day I plan to rest and relax and watch movies and maybe even get into a bottle of wine a friend left on my door the other day. Sounds like an awesome way to spend a holiday, doesn't it?
I only have two more days left to work before my four days off. Right now, the plan is to drive down to the big O for Christmas Eve mass in the afternoon, drive around with the kids and check out the lights and then go to my Aunt's to eat and open presents. We'll drive back that night. Of course, this is all weather dependent. According to the most recent forecast, we're supposed to get either snow, rain, ice, freezing rain, a typhoon, plagues of locusts and/or eternal damnation ( or something like that) starting tonight and continuing for the rest of the week. Since I've lived in Iowa for most of my adult life, I'll just go with what I always say...We'll see.
If the weather is too bad to drive down to be with the family, I know the girls will be disappointed, but we'll just hibernate. Luckily, we only live a few blocks from the store, so even if it's too icy to drive, I can at least skate over there and stock up on food and make the best of it...Maybe I'll even get into that bottle of wine a day early.
