Christmas – The Aftermath

December 27th, 2003 Leave a comment Go to comments

Christmas comes but once a year, and for 2003, it is now coming to a close. Here are some of the things that I reflect upon when I think about Xmas03:

  • The mad dash to get one of the last two Care-Bear’s from Kaybee Toys
  • Keeping Cassidy occupied while shopping for her..with her… :wink:
  • Finding and decorating our very own six foot Noble Fir
  • The 15 minute mad dash to get Christmas dinner bought before Safeway closed
  • Roasting the garlic to go into the mashed potatoes ( btw, wow)
  • snacking on Hearts of Palm as I grated cheese for the dip
  • How purely AWESOME Emril’s Spinache Artichoke Dip came out!
  • Wrapping the presents on Christmas Eve, making sure that Cassidy was asleep
  • Setting out the partially eaten cake and milk with a note from Santa
  • The pure joy in Cassidy’s face as she opened present after present
  • The contentment in Anna’s gaze, as she experienced what Christmas is all about
  • getting the call from dead-beat Dad that is now over $2000 overdue in child support
    asking when ‘we’ were going to bring Cassidy to him (fortunately for Cassidy, he came to his senses, and came and picked her up today, he’ll get the next week with her)
  • Seeing Anna in her new red and blue Tommy™ tank top and boxers
  • I know Anna was very worried that things would turn out poorly, we were tight on money, but she forgets, that with me, things just tend to turn out famously. For me, I was stressed, but it was also one of the best Christmas’s ever.
