please, don't remind me. I still have to wrap all of my presents, bake 3 pies and make both a christmas eve buffet and christmas dinner.
This is after I have baked 75 dozen cookies and 2 pies as well as dinner for the family every night (my family loves it when I come home for the holidays because I can actually cook).

yikes, that's a lot to do. We've got Sweeney Todd today, Erikas performance tomorrow, I'm baking Sunday, and all else is done!

YIKES!!!! I still have cookies to bake, a chocolate pie and meatballs to make, a few stocking stuffers to buy and the grocery shopping for Christmas dinner.
On top of that i have a houseful of company tonight, and I am still under the weather.

yikes is right Elphaba. But somehow (just like theatre) it always comes together.

I still have to drive home to spend it with my family. It's just 4 and a half hours away, but the drive across NYS is boring.

I realized a few days ago this is my first time seeing my brother since last Christmas, so I'm excited about that... being close to my siblings, we're never apart that long!

Elphaba- I'm jealous that you get to see Erika's performance. I'm hoping to see Sweeney this week. Being Jewish, I'm done with the holidays but I have a lot of tests to take for work. I was going to ask you to post a review of White Christmas but I'm sure it will be fabulous based on the video clips I've seen. Have fun and have a wonderful holiday! mom

I haven't bought presents for any of my immediate family yet. I tried to get a new wallet for my mom yesterday and I went to the Gucci store downtown and I swear it looked like a tornado hit and they had been robbed. There were no wallets left on the shelves at all. It was carazy. Anyway I'm so not in the shopping mood this year, so it looks like everyone is going to be getting pretty cash.

Oh and I desperately need to get my eyebrows waxed today. I'm feeling very she wolf.

We still haven't put the tree up. It's pointless now but Christmas Eve is at our house this year so we kind of have to. I still haven't bought anything for anyone yet, which means I still need to shop and then warp everything. Gift bags are glorious things! And then bake. So much fun! Thankfully I have the next few days off!

I just got my mom's present today, and my dad's. Have to get something for the sister.
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

Hanging out with a friend tonight ...

Tomorrow we have four parties starting at 3:00 pm, the last one starts at 9:00 pm.

Sunday, I am baking my mom's Christmas Cake, then preparing for Christmas Eve dinner on Monday, since I have to work during the day. Making lasagna, so it can be prepared a day ahead. And cleaning ... having 6 people over an my place must be spotless.

Oh, Diva, you scoundrel! re: 4 more days til Christmas

I was really good this year... Right on Dec. 1st, I put up and adorable pre-lit 4 foot tree in my hotel room (mutlicolored lights), and decorated it with selected ornaments from home. (There's no way all of them would fit on a small tree.) It's very festive! I've had all my shopping done for weeks...although I keep buying "extra" things when I see stuff I think friends and family would like.

We have a matinee on Christmas Day, but my husband's going to spend the morning with me, and we'll drive up to my in-laws' house after the show.

All I have left to do is wrap a few presents. re: 4 more days til Christmas

And Elphaba, I hope you enjoy White Christmas tomorrow!

I don't have much to do at Christmas time, and I'm working on Christmas. But tomorrow I do have to shop for some great stuff to put under my friend's tree. I was invited there for Christmas dinner but I have to miss it because of work~

Send Christmas cards. I know, I know, they'll be late this year. I guess I'll send an email Christmas card with photo for all I can. And wrap some gifts for some folks, but most is done. And my tree is finally decorated.
