Our one seasonal tradition is to go out to breakfast the morning before X-mas and leave the waitress a very big tip. I don’t know why we do it. We just do. Our waitress was very nice this morning and she seemed very excited to get a $50.00 tip. It’s the little things….
We spent the day lounging and watching stuff on Netflix, as I’m still not feeling “intestinally sound.”
We are at my Mom’s tonight. She has an open house every X-mas Eve, so we almost always make an appearance and, given that we are 5 minutes away now, it would have been hard to avoid it this year. It’s a small house with lots of noise, clutter and people and by the time we get home, the peace and quiet of our home will be a welcome relief. But it makes her happy for us to be here, so we grin and bear it.
Mostly, I want to be home with our dogs.
