I skipped the women's Christmas party this year. I have had so much going on, and I have been cooking every weekend. The Christmas parties started the 3rd week in November this year and sometimes there were two in one weekend. This past weekend I was cooking for Saturday on Friday night while the ladies were partying. I am getting older and just can't do every single thing any more. I will be cooking for a party every weekend until Christmas and then doing breakfast Christmas day for my family.
I LOVE Christmas and all it means and all the celebrating, but just can't keep up with the younger folks any more.
I have expanded my skills. I can now forget what I am doing while I am still doing it.
