I did it. I made it through a busy week of work, office Christmas party, BNI White Elephant, department Secret Santa, relatives in town for the weekend, 6 MK Christmas gift baskets, and I am almost home-free for a 1-week Christmas vacation.
Tonight, The Boy and I hop into our rental (let it be a Charger, please let it be a Charger), trundle out to BGSU to watch Binkles graduate tomorrow morning, and then down to Columbus Saturday afternoon for Yule.
I really expect Yule to be good this year: I won’t be hung over, The Boy and I are driving a rental, I took the week after work off. I’ve veritably set up the Perfect Yule Storm. I mean, I have a contingency plan for potential snow!
I’m ready for the feasting, for the toasting, for the oathing and the boasting!
But I don’t know if I’m ready for the room full of smokers. I’m five weeks and five days strong, in a holiday of vice and excess. It’s going to be hard.
