down to the wire

Oh boy, who would have thought that being down for the count for one day could set me back so far? I was so ill on Tuesday that I got absolutely nothing done. In fact, I took two naps. If you know me at all you know this: I do not nap. I think it was some kind of 12-hour bug because yesterday I was back to my old self. Unfortunately I just can’t make up the lost time.

With this being the case, I’ve decided to cut out a few of the things I was planning to do for Christmas Day — like make a floral centerpiece. I could certainly do a search for a local florist. Something like “flower delivery Mobile, AL” (assuming I was in Alabama). But I think I’ll just use my poinsettia as a centerpiece. You can’t do it all.

I’ve also tweaked my menu (yes, again). So lunch will be:

Spinach & artichoke dip with sweet potato chips
Cheese plate
Shrimp cocktail

Hickory-smoked spiral ham
Meatballs in tomato sauce
Penne a la vodka
Caesar salad
Crescent rolls

My brother-in-law and his girlfriend are going to bring dessert. For Christmas morning, I’ll make some cinnamon rolls and if I’m motivated tomorrow I’ll prep an egg strata since they will be spending the night on Christmas Eve. If not, no big deal.

Hopefully you are a lot more organized than I am!
