The week of Christmas

December 20, 2010

Like I said yesterday, this week is going to rock!

Last night/Sunday night: Neil got home from work REALLY late but we did spend a few hours sleeping in bed together. I love waking up to him lying beside me!

Today/Monday: Neil is working and I’m going Murray for part of the day but tonight we will be together, if only for another few hours.

Tuesday: Neil will be working and I’ll be home. Probably cleaning and the like. Might also have some web design work to do. Neil will be home late again but at least I’ll have my cuddle buddy!

Wednesday: We’re Paducah bound! We’ll hang out that morning and afternoon but a group of us is going caroling at a few local nursing homes that evening. I’m really really looking forward to it! Neil and I both will spend that night at my parents’ house.

Thursday: Neil will work on his truck with his dad while I am taking a CPR renewal class. Not that I’m not looking forward to BUT I have a dinner date with my sil Kelly and my nephew Kolton! Other than Christmas, it’ll be the highlight of my week! Neil is staying the night at Megan and Bryan’s house in Madisonville to dog sit while I will stay at mom and dad’s.

Friday, Christmas Eve: Neil has to work early that morning but promises to be at my parents’ house in time for my mom’s side of the family’s Christmas lunch. This meal usually has the best food and therefore is my favorite! That evening Neil and I will join his family at his family’s church for their Christmas Eve service. Immediately following that church service will be my church’s Christmas Eve service, in which I am singing. Yay! From that service we will reconvene at Neil’s parents’ house for their immediate family Christmas get together. We usually just order pizza.

Saturday, Christmas: We will sleep late at my mom and dad’s, I will help mom cook and Neil will watch TV with my dad. The Christmas Story will most likely be the other thing worth watching. That afternoon we’ll have a late lunch at my aunt’s house for my dad’s side of the family’s Christmas get together. Later that night my immediate family will eat left overs at my mom and dad’s house for our Christmas. We’ll stay at my parents’ house that night as well.

Sunday: I’m singing at church again and then Neil and I will join his mother’s family at his uncle’s house for their Christmas. Neil will leave early to go to work and I will either stay for the rest of the evening or leave when he does.

It’ll be a nice long Christmas Holiday in Paducah and Neil and I are both looking forward to spending it with our families!

What are your Christmas plans?

    I am trying to convince Shaun to come caroling with us. He got all shy. I was like, it’s not a concert! I’ll work on him…

    Sounds like you are going to have so much fun. I wish they had caroling around here that I could do.

    My parents are flying in on Firday. I can’t wait!!! 4 days with my parents in my new house, this is going to be an awesome holiday.
