Christmas Heave

No, I don’t mean barfing (though, come to think of it, Little Girl Blue did actually have a little tummy problem and threw up a couple times). I’m not sick of the holiday already.

Nope. Just had to do all the wrapping last-minute and heave all those gifts downstairs, as quietly as possible while my wee one slept and Mrs. Blue slumbered, too (don’t be mad at her; she needed the rest more than I needed the help). I also had to assemble one large item on the spot, since I don’t think the little girl would be patient if I had to put it together on Christmas morning. I just wish that the second step of assembly wouldn’t have said “align screws with predrilled holes” only for me to discover that those four predrilled holes didn’t exist. Thank God the wood was soft, since it would have been hard to drill quietly. In the end, even though it took more than two hours all told, it all worked out, and I can’t wait for the morning flurry of unwrapping.


Deacon Blue is the blogging persona of editor and writer Jeffrey Bouley. The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
