Count On It

"The hurrier I go, the behinder I get."  That would be me.  The corollary is, "Don't look behind; something might be gaining on you."  (Courtesy of Satchel Paige.)  In my case, it's Christmas.  This goose is probably the only one in the house ready for our holiday today.  My personal goose is cooked, as I have a grand total of one decoration on the tree and no lights whatsoever.  Gifts remain unwrapped.  I did get the chili verde in the oven to bake low and slow overnight.  Maybe with the wonderful aroma of pork and chilies, the Kids will overlook my sins of omission.  The Christmas spirit is willing, it's my flesh that's weak.  (I've got to quit quoting or misquoting platitudes!)

I suppose New Year's will sneak in here someday soon.  Doesn't matter.  I won't be ready.  Count on it.

I think Christmas snuck up on a lot of us, what with Thanksgiving so late. I miscalculated and ended up shopping on Dec. 26 for one person, but it was ok because 1/2 of our Christmas didn't happen until the 27th and 28th.
