The lights are low, a Christmas movie is on that Jumper is watching and hubby is also on his computer. We gave Jumper a few of her gifts, as we always do on Christmas Eve, but that's about all we do. We told Sonic he could sleep at our place if he liked tonight, but Sonic wanted to say home. He has trouble sleeping if not in his own bed. But we talked and he is excited. 37 called and wanted to talk and talk and talk, but I'm tired and I told him I wanted to lay down because my day at work was very taxing. I could tell he was disappointed because he is missing his son and wanted to discuss it plus talk about his latest girlfriend. I just want quiet so I gently told him I'd get back to him when I was less tired out. There is nothing special going on here. Just the peace of the three of us here. Soon we'll all three be laying around watching the telly with the lit up Christmas tree twinkling it's lights and our doggies snuggling with us all in the living room. Nothing dramatic is happening. At one time, not at least driving around to look at the neighborhood Christmas lights would have been unimaginable, but none of us REALLY want to do that just to make it Christmassy. I do feel a bit Christmassy, but mostly just content. I hope some of you are having the same type of peaceful evening with your dearest loved ones that I am. I have to smile at all the rushing from place to place I used to do so many years ago when I was married to somebody else and so much a different person. It was so hectic. So not fun. So stressful. I am going to do a meditation then lay down to join Jumper in watching the movie. Tomorrow will be a bit more "hectic." After all...Sonic will be here too And we have gifts to hand out. Jumper is cooking her first Christmas meal. We shopped together for food. I'm sure she'll do fine and we'll all enjoy Christmas dinner. And Friday it will be done.
