This Christmas I'm spending alone.
My hubby and kids and grandkids are in Chicago, I did see them last week. My parents, brother and family and nieces and kids are all at their own homes. We are all iced and snowed in.
I'm EXCITED about spending Christmas alone!
I'll cook and eat what I want. I'm thinking taco surprise is on the menu. I might make green beans and some mashed potatoes too. For breakfast.
I'll get my own presents. I'll be shopping online tomorrow. Why? Because I can.
I'll take some pictures of the foot of snow we are supposed to have. I'll make a snow angel. I might even create my own labyrinth. I will dress up in my Christmas finery and take my own picture.
I'll continue to plan the conference I'm hosting this year. I'll work on plans for 2010. I'll work, my work. Now that's fun!
No, the plans were not to be alone. The weather is interjecting a major storm and the smart thing to do is stay home. This is the year (month zero of 2010 right now) to revel in the goodness in life. The year to step into greatness. So Christmas Day, I'll think of baby Jesus and be thankful. I'll be great.
What will you be doing?
