Christmas is fast approaching and as per usual I am left with a whole laundry list of things to do before it gets here. I only just got around to decorating the tree, I still have a few gifts to buy, wrap, and deliver. I also have some baking to do, and some appetizers to make too! Needless to say, with a week left until the big day, I’m starting to feel a little pressure.
Halloween has come and gone, and what it has left behind is much scarier than anything this festival of fright could ever conjure up.
Every year, Tina charges out to the local supermarché in search of that perfect pumpkin; the roundest, most orange, medium-sized gourd out there. What a ball it is for her to scrape out its guts, leaving bits and pieces on the counter and floor for me to slime myself with.
Every year as the last few days of my summer vacation draw near, I get this sinking feeling. Not because I have to actually get up with an alarm and face the rush hour traffic again, nor is it because I have to go back to work. I truly dread this time of year because back to school means I have to wear pants!
