|Soon it will be Christmas Day!

Had a great day with my mom. Got my meds from the pharmacy and mailed out all my parcels and cards.
We went to Giant Tiger and got to shop leisurely. I hardly ever shop leisurely, I usually only shop when I need something. I ended up buying two pairs of pants. One denim and the other really fuzzy and soft. I can't remember the last time I bought fitted jeans. Turns out I am a size 16, which makes me happy. I had no idea. Also picked up a couple of meals, eggs (for baking), fruitcake, and snacks. Then we walked over to the LCBO and my mom stocked up on wine. Heh. She even bought me a bottle of rosé. The raspberry Smirnoff looks really good. Hopefully I'll get to try some soon!
We came back to my house and had tea & toast and lots of good conversation. I am glad to have finally gotten a real visit with my mom (not just a power visit).
I'm really emotionally/mentally exhausted from being so busy lately, but it kinda feels good at the same time. I think the actual holidays themselves will turn out fine. Only have 3 gifts left to send out, so that will be good, too.
Did I mention that I decorated my house? Did that on Tuesday, if I recall correctly. Wish I had somewhere that I could plug in Christmas lights.
Currently acquiring a selection of Christmas songs. Kind of tired of the same ones, even though it's a compilation I made myself!
Les is supposed to be stopping by tonight to pick up his books. Other than that, I plan on eating supper, then watching House and finishing up Stephanie's present.
Wassail is tomorrow night. I told my mom that half of what we're doing will be stuff she's already seen us preform, but she's still interested in coming, so that makes me happy. She always has such a good time at the wassail. I kind of see it as our holiday kick-off.
I hope that everyone is well. If you don't hear from me for a bit, it's just cuz I'm busy. I'll try to do proper updates every so often. :)
Joy to you all! *hugs*
