Christmas Time

Just me and Jen this Christmas morning.  Definitely missing our families but it will probably be the last Christmas we spend on our own once Peanut comes along.  The Robickles will be along for dinner though so we won't be going completely solo.  But I did think our Charlie Brown Christmas tree was appropriate:

Still looking forward to presents and a relaxing day of goofing off.  Jen had made sure we were prepared for Christmas months ago so it has been pretty stress free actually.  I did have a grocery list to take care of this morning though.  I was at the grocery store for 7 a.m. and the paltry crowd had me pretty pleased with myself.  I grabbed everything we needed for the next couple days and hightailed it out of there.  The only thing left to get was some booze.

The LCBO opened at 10.  I was there at 10:10.  There were already 5 cashiers open and the lines were 20 people deep.  Sweet merciful crap.  I rounded up all the necessities and actually managed to get through the line in short order.  My hat is off to the efficient processors at the Ottawa St. LCBO!

With the shopping done I scurried home, avoiding traffic incident after traffic incident.  Huddled in the comfort of my favourite chair I just had to wait for my hunny bunny to make it home and I'd be completely ready for Christmas.

One last thing, if the family around you starts grating on you this holiday saeson, I highly recommend taking a look at the Dropkick Murphy's latest as a reminder of how special this time of year is and how special families can be.

Merry Christmas everybody!
