Eh, who am I kidding? I like the week leading up to Christmas. Morning traffic is a bit thinned out and so is the office. The workload even lightens up a bit. There are new recipes that bloggers all over the place start sharing. The best recipes can be found over at http://www.suburbanbliss.net/ where Melissa's husband, Logan, has been posting a different drink recipe for every day leading up to Christmas. I love finding a quiet spot somewhere off in the corner at my parents' place on Christmas Eve and take solace in the fact that only 1 of the 6 maniac kids running amok has to actually come back home with me.
I have no idea what to expect in the coming year, nothing is set in stone, but I know my son will be in awe of the fact that Santa remembered to pick up the latest Wolverine toy even though Daddy said we had to leave it at the store.
There's a good chance I may soon join the unending ranks of the unemployed this winter. I try not to think about it, but it's sitting there like a 900 pound gorilla waiting to greet me each morning. I'm just hoping it doesn't treat me like a Samsonite carry-on when my current project finally wraps.
Until then, I'm going to try to sample as many of Logan's 12 days of Christmas cocktails as I can and think about the look on my son's face when Wolverine is finally staring at him face to face.
