Family Holidays

The middle daughter is home.  The presents have been received by the other two daughters.  Everything is ready for the holidays - I think.

Friday night will be video holiday with all of my family.  I'm looking forward to seeing their faces when they open their gifts.  I'm sure I'll hear corny jokes, laughter, and all the other things which go with family gatherings.

I miss the times we would spend together playing games, watching movies and so on.  However, they are in Georgia and we are in Wisconsin.  Ken can't get off around a holiday and Virginia is working every day except Friday.  We will adjust and adapt while we make the most of the time we do have together.

Saturday Ken will go to his family.  I don't know whether I will go or not yet.  It depends on my sinus issues and the weather.

Sunday is my family gathering.  I'm not sure whether we are going or not - for the same reasons above.

Tonight Vicki and I will be clipping coupons, checking the rebates, and making a list for batch cooking.  At some point we are going to make some large batches of food for the freezer.  I'll have to pay bills in order to figure out how much we will have to spend on groceries.  We're going to make a list of where we're going and what we need to pick up.  It will be a busy day on Friday.

Since I have off, Vicki and I will spend the day running errands, shopping, and getting ready for the family thing Friday night.  It will be a very busy day.

Next week will be full of cooking, crocheting, and spending time with Vicki.  I'm hoping to finish a few projects for her (writing up the patterns of course).  However, we'll see what trouble we get into.
