Ok - I am now feeling the Christmas rush.

Friday night - went to the grocery store, then home to wrap presents for my Mom and make marinated carrots for Tim's dad's birthday party.

Saturday morning - up early to wrap more presents and clean up house. Went to Holloways, bought ham, took to Nash for them to smoke. Made broccoli cornbread for beforementioned party. Took food to Tim's and brought potatoes back to house to cook. cooked potatoes, wrapped Jimmy's grandbabies' presents. Went to birthday party, ate, had fun. Left party at 5:15 to go babysit said Grandbabies. Boy, I could not have done it without Jimmy....two two year olds are a handful! Home at midnight. Watched "Predator" for the umpteenth time. Bed at 2:00 am.

Sunday -Up early to straighten up the house more because my brother and his family are in town. They come over after lunch. Larry Naaman and I go to Belks to get Christmas presents. Take them back to Mom's. I go by the house and get grocery list I forgot. Go to targets, and then the grocery store. Leaving the store I go by and pick up BBQ for dinner. They all come over, we open presents and eat BBQ. Visit and talk until 10:00.

Monday - to work I go, having to finish my month end entries, run payroll early because of the holiday and make sure cash accounts are in balance. Leave work at 5:00 to have Christmas dinner with Jimmy's sister and her family at Carraba's. Both grandbabies were there too, so it was fun. Home at 9:00 - exhausted.

Today - work again, much slower than yesterday....it looks like a ghost town around here. Leaving at 4:30 to go to Nash BBQ and pick up ham and fixings. Serving Christmas dinner at my house at 6:00.

And through all of this I am sick with a sinus infection. I just want to crawl in bed and never come out.

When will the madness stop? After I serve Christmas Breakfast (sausage balls and cheese grits) I am done. If I can make it that far!

Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy New Year!
