Last minute stuff...

We will be celebrating Christmas with Odysseus's parents tomorrow, and opening gifts with the kids on Christmas morning (though Odysseus works Christmas night).  Weather permitting, we'll make a flying surprise visit to my mother's on Boxing Day, provided her sisters all go home on Christmas--otherwise, the visit will be put off (and also not previously announced).

Why yes, yes I am trying to avoid my aunts.  One of them is a spineless wimp, and another is a bully--neither character trait is something I want modeled for my kids, especially not what happens when the bully lights into the wimp.

I haven't yet gotten my mother a Christmas present.  I just don't know what to get for her.  We haven't made it to the store for what we're going to get for my in-laws, either.

Last, but not least, we need to make a brief grocery run.  We need to make cranberry relish (recipe here at bottom of post) for my in-laws, and I need to pick up a prescription refill.

I hate this time of year.  I really, really do.
