Christmas Parties

The time for Christmas parties has arrived once again.  My first official Christmas gathering will be tomorrow night.  There’s a Christmas show at church tomorrow night, where we’ll be having cookies and stuff afterwards.  The kids are doing it, so it’ll mainly be all about the cookies… but it’s still my first “Christmas” event for the year.
I will be attending a Christmas party on Thursday and Friday.  We’ll be having Christle’s dad’s extended Christmas gathering on Saturday, and then my Dad’s family gathering on Sunday.  They both have their awkward parts… I will not be sharing any related stories… but it should be nice to see everyone, anyway.
Then I have to go an entire week without Christmas events.  I’ll probably need a break anyway, though.  I will be just rested enough to get back into the swing of things the following Friday night through Monday night.

 Merry Christmas!

Christle doesn’t read this blog very often.  She doesn’t know that I have the day after Christmas off as a holiday this year.  If she finds out, that’s fine.  But the reason I haven’t told her, is because I don’t want to do anything that day but sit around and enjoy the day.  I’m afraid that if she finds out too early, that plans might change.  I don’t want that.  If things work the way I’d like, I’ll probably get up and leave at the same time I usually go to work, and go work out.  Then when I get done with a much needed workout, I’ll come home and say… “I thought I told you…”
Then I’ll show her this post, and we’ll have a nice laugh about it.

  1. I have to admit that I have been to a few of the parties expecting some bit of awkward where there wasn’t any. We had a good time where we weren’t expecting to.
    I have to say, though, that we made an effort to get past our own sense of awkward, and that probably had a lot to do with the end result. I wish all of these parties would go as well as they have so far.

  2. OK, well I guess I was wrong about my fears. That is usually the case, however, so I should have known. So far, every party we’ve attended has been quite pleasant, and has made us look forward to future events.
