No, no, I won't be sailing off the coast of Maine near Cape Elizabeth ...
... or on Casco Bay near Portland
... but I do hope to sail through some of the goals I have set for myself today which include dragging Jamie out of the warm house and to one of the local Christmas tree farms in search of
Also on the agenda is a bit of gift-wrapping, finishing up my Christmas cards so I can mail them out on Monday (I finally remembered to get some stamps!), and getting a rum cake baked so that it can "age" a bit before the annual Christmas party that I host at my house for my co-workers in the Dispatch and Scheduling Department. I think we started having a Christmas party about five or six years ago and we always end up having a good time with lots to eat and drink and a chance to relax outside of the stressful confines of a 911 dispatch center.
The party is scheduled for next Saturday evening and considering I'll be up in Salem, Massachusetts from Wednesday until Friday of this upcoming week, that means I definitely need to get some stuff done in the little bit of time I have off between now and when we leave on Wednesday morning or I'll really be running around like the proverbial chicken with its head cut off once I get back with my college student in tow for her winter break. After all, I can't have people coming over to a messy house that isn't decorated and no desserts made, can I? I don't think so!
Whatever your Saturday with only two weeks remaining until Christmas entails, I hope you sail through it, too!
