So we haven’t been able to put up our Christmas tree just yet nor have I put up any decorations whatsoever. I promise to do it tomorrow.. (I’m going out tonight with some former officemates from Allstate.) I know Mom’s itching to put it all up — I would, too, but the tree is a challenge I cannot do alone. I’d rather wait for Alan and the stepson to help.
Meanwhile, I’m feeling all christmassy here listening to some christmas carols on the laptop CD drive. I’m down with a bad allergy of sorts I picked up once here in the office, and I’m trying to postpone having to drink the allergy meds until I can no longer bear it because I don’t want to get all groggy just now. It’s just half past noon and I have a full day ahead.
Paskong-pasko na siguro sa Pilipinas. I can imagine the malls and the streets bedecked with Christmas decor. It is something I sorely miss here in New York where Christmas is an “optional” holiday being that there is such a diversity of communities and a very big Jewish population. So we don’t all do Christmas. Of course within the family, it’s a big deal to all of us and Alan and I are going to do our Christmas shopping this coming Monday– it’s special more so because Angel now delights in toys and presents and can participate actively in the gift giving. We had bought him one of two toys we wanted him to get from Santa, and he was so inquisitive about the box that he tried to pull it into the living room so he could inspect it.
Christmas has always been special to me and this year is another special one I’m looking forward to.
Well, we decided to cancel dinner because of the anticipated storm, so I’m heading straight home, back to my baby. I might yet get some christmas decorations up after all.
