Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out.
“Hello, Monday. How kind of you to drop by…”
I know full well that for me these next two weeks will be a challenge.
a. moving to a new house.
b. directing a Children’s musical.
c. preparing to host all my family for Christmas in the aforementioned new house.
Not to mention keeping up with all the regular things like having clean clothes to wear or feeding my family. Or all the Christmas things like addressing cards and wrapping gifts.
After the kids were in bed last night, my handsome hubby looked at me and directly told me I was not allowed to talk about anything stressful for the rest of the evening. We have two weeks of that to look forward to. So he played a video game while I watched Cake Boss and played on Pinterest with a cup of hot peppermint tea. Wonderfully relaxing.
And today we will tackle a massive agenda that rivals Santa’s famous list. At the top of that list is locating this: Mocha Nog. I love eggnog almost as much as I coffee. Almost. Anderson Erickson, an independent Iowa dairy, make the best eggnog. Nothing comes close. Last August, while attending the Iowa State Fair, I had the opportunity to sample this new creation. Verdict? Mocha Nog is pretty much heaven in a cup. And it’s officially beginning to arrive in Iowa grocery stores.
So armed with a steamy cup of coffee, an iPod full of fresh Christmas music (just downloaded this one for $5: 100 Classic Christmas Songs) and hopefully a tall glass of Mocha Nog later… I am ready to go all Chuck Norris on my list.
