Ribbons & Bows

I stayed in my pjs until after 4pm when I only got dressed to go pick up Keegan. I watched two movies while simultaneously wrapping presents. I had a few more to do after he went to bed but I am finally done. I had to dig out regular paper to do my mom's birthday gift because we always try to separate it from Christmas as much as possible being two days after. Every year I have this fear that I have some gift hidden away that I forgot or that I completely forgot to shop for someone. Must be the holiday jitters. I also did all the laundry and paid my bills ahead of time in case I forget in the excitement of the celebrations. I think I will work a half day tomorrow. Go in for my boss' last day, finish some smaller projects and then skeedaddle. Tom's sister Barb is flying in, in the morning and I am picking her up from his place to stay over with Keegan and I tomorrow night. She will also get to meet Jeff since he is coming to spend tomorrow night and Christmas Eve with us. Now I just have to decide what to do about dinner, breakfast and lunch. I am guessing dining only on Christmas cookies is out of the question?
