Of Christmas Lists...

This afternoon, I finally sat down to finalize the menus for the holiday week, since the entire family will soon be landing on our doorstep for Christmas: my mother and father, my brother, my sister, her husband, and their two little boys.

I plan to do a massive grocery shop late on Saturday night-- I find it works best if I arrive at the store about an hour before closing time. Then, it's just the check-out clerks, the stock personnel, and ME. The peace that I enjoy, with my ipod firmly clamped in my ears, by FAR outweighs the slightly disturbing fact that I am the oldest person in the entire store-- not to mention the only Geek in town without "plans" on a Saturday night...


I thought for a moment, then began to write the grocery list:

BOOZE
Fruitcake
Nuts

And then I paused...

Because the fact that those were the FIRST THREE THINGS I came up with surely says a LOT about Christmas With My Family...
