In the Holiday Spirit

The Thanksgiving weekend is now over and my daughter and her husband have made it safely back to Delaware. It was so nice having them here and I'm looking forward to their Christmas visit! Lets all keep our fingers crossed for safe holiday travel weather. It will be so nice to have both of my kids here for the holiday again.

I am in the holiday spirit more this year than any other. I think it's because I don't feel as rushed as I have in years past. This is the first Christmas in about 8 years that I'm working part time instead of working 40 to 60 hours a week. This is also the first Christmas in that long that I have Christmas Eve off. Not only do I have Christmas off, I have the day before and the day after! Doc will be going out of town so we run with a minimum crew. I have lots of time off at the end of the month!

So my "To Do" list is large as usual but this year I have more time to do everything!


  1. So glad you had a good Thanksgiving with your daughter. And time off at Christmas - yay! I'm already thinking about all I have to do. Yikes!

  2. I'm glad you have some extra time for Christmas this year. And it's great that your daughter will be able to visit for both holidays!

  3. You are going to enjoy this Christmas more than any other with extra time off, and the kids home for the holidays! After working long hours in years past, you certainly deserve it!

  4. I love the holidays also. It is all about getting together with family and loved ones. It does make it special when the kids can all be there

  5. Free time is a gift I appreciate more each year.
    Enjoy your long holiday weekend!

  6. I'm glad that you had a good Thanksgiving! I'm already looking forward to Christmas, too. I am kind of on the same page with Christmas. I have so much to do, but I think it will be one of the best holidays ever.

    That's great that you'll have time off around Christmas! Everyone deserves that.

  7. I'm not quite in the holiday mood yet but glad to hear you are
    How fabulous having Christmas eve and the day after off. Sometimes I get one or the other off but I don't think I've ever had both of them.

  8. Hope the weather cooperates for safe travel and that you get your long list completed!

    It’s a Wrap Link Party at Artful Rising

  9. I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving and will have a more relaxed Christmas! I always dread the holidays because it means tax season is around the corner. I look forward to when I don't have that hanging over my head and can enjoy the holidays too!

  10. Enjoy your extra time off for the holidays.
    I can't wait until I have less hours to work.
    Happy holidays to you and yours.

  11. So wonderful that you had such a nice time with your daughter! It's great that you'll all be together again for Christmas too. It's good that you're not feeling as rushed as other years and how nice that you'll have so much time off. :) Enjoy every minute with your family Sher!

  12. Enjoy that wonderful time off! Here's to safe travel for your daughter and her husband!
