7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
But first! I can't sit around enjoying old photos when there's a Christmas card to send out... Funniest comment of the week from Brian: "We thought we were done with wedding lists after we got married... This is just another version... every year." LOL. So. True. Cheers to all of you working to send snail mail cheer. I understand that no one should be responsible for this (big) job during such a crazy year, but I can't tell you how eager I am to receive Christmas (posted) cheer from loved ones.
This is the first year that I have a legitimate budding reader in the house... I officially must refrain from leaving my Christmas gift list with "Santa - Child" on the paper... Lest the magic come to a close... Or "Stocking Stuffer Candy" on my shopping list. So glad he's reading! LOL.
In other Santa news, our home was not designed for Christmas hiding. I have one storage closet, one coat closet, and one pantry: all used regularly by all family members and none of which are particularly suited to store much more in the way of gift hiding. HOWEVER! We do have a large gift that we're hiding... and we basically hid it in full sight in the back of the coat closet. Zero children noticed or asked. It is basically a part of the furniture at this point... So that's nice.
Last but not least, I give you: a 2020 Date. No, our year was not littered with new restaurants (Same as you), which has always been our preferred way to enjoy a date night... In 2020? We ordered a new TV, and had to go pick it up from a docking entrance at the mall... at 10 am on a Thursday. Baby in the back seat, kids in school, and you bet your bottom dollar I put on a dress, knee high boots and lipstick. We on a date, yo. This is 2020. #KeepinItReal
