Santa Is Not The Only One Working On Christmas Eve

I’m in the office today, mostly by choice. Don’t cry for me, I’ve already been productive by getting a Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks and shooting my Christmas wad at Total Wine.

    It’s a pretty relaxing day at JEFDSDR. Debbie got up and made pies, I got up and fed the horses and then gave my rollers a half an hour of work.

    I hope all the ITP readers have a lovely Christmas day.

    I’ve been busy here, did some last minute shopping at Kroger, went to the bank, made a trip to Goodwill and the Outlets to exchange the coat Jerry got me for Christmas (not sure why he would think I’m an X-small).

    Now just baking, what I swear is, my last batch of Christmas cookies, cranberry & oatmeal. I was planning on going for a run but I think a nap my win out today.

    I’m pretty excited, I’ve got two people that may be interested in AppleJack. It would be so great if I got to take him to a new home and not back to the kennel after the holidays.

    Paulie, I hope you feel better. I can bring AJ over to cuddle with you if you think it would help (I’m sure it would)!

    Merry Christmas everyone!!!

  3. Not sure who would slobber more at the moment, me or a hound.

    It’s 4pm local, I am still at the office and my health is declining. I had a HUGE lunch and think I will be canceling any thought of Christmas merriment.

    Tomorrow’s plans are now completely up in the air.
