Christmas Day has passed and I have survived.

So that's Christmas all wrapped up - or unwrapped if you prefer. It started at six o'clock for me and I worked till about eleven then received family members, cooked the dinner, and now I'm frazzled. This was a truly remarkable Christmas, the first in many years when no-one offered me underwear, socks or scarves as a gift.

My Christmas preparations started right after Thanksgiving. Talk about being exhausted. The fact that I had to work more than usual didn't help with the energy level, but my husband was a big help. This was the first Christmas he totally decorated the tree! He said, "How do you want these ornaments on the tree?" and I replied, "Whatever." I was too tired to really care. But still lots to be thankful for.
