Now through January 3rd

| No Comments

Now through January 3rd is holiday time. We'll clean house and prepare auspicious foods for toshigama, the year gods, between now and Monday. Then we can kick back and enjoy the luxury of idleness for the first three days of the new year.

Except I think it won't work out quite like that in our house.

I'll sleep in all weekend, and fail to do the laundry. The carpets will remain unvacuumed while I go to the store on Monday to stock up on tinned soup and crackers to tide us over the days when all the stores are closed. On Tuesday we will run out of toilet paper. By Wednesday, Tod & I will be bickering over who has to go down into the unheated kitchen to brew more coffee.

Ah, holidays!
