Well, it's over for another year. Our Ladies Christmas Party at church has come and gone. This is the only large crowd Christmas party that I will be going to this year. Which is sort of nice because some years there have 3 or 4 that we had to attend and it was just too much. As the "official" door prize collector and giver-awayer, it was busy but lots of fun. I actually didn't do anything silly like trip going back and forth from the microphone, or say something I regretted out of nervousness, or stood in front of everyone with some article of clothing askew. Not that any of that stuff has ever happened to me. Ahem. There was a couple of strange moments when after I drew a name and called it out two different women came running up. Two women out of a hundred there that night that had the exact same first and last name. What are the odds? And then the other one was as I was calling out names another lady comes walking by right in front of me, I was on the floor not the stage, and she starts asking me to get her a chair to sit near the front for the play and to announce some things. LOL. Makes you have to think fast on your feet.
Today however, I woke up with a whopping headache. I think a combo of excitement, nervousness, running around all day trying to get things done, combined with no coffee due to a durn blood test and not eating thanks to the same and then not having time to eat until I ate at the party, it just all "goes to my head". Literally. So I'm nursing that this morning and hopefully the kids won't be in too much of a rowdy mood. Today we'll probably make a candle they can take home. Something that involves lots of glue and glitter sounds good.
So how is your Christmas season kicking off? Have the parties started yet for you or are you skipping those this year? Is your tree up and your shopping done? Or are you one of the "I don't want to think about it until the last week" kind of personalities?
