...Saturday before Gaudete Sunday (I'm saving my joy for tomorrow).
1) If God gave us children as sassy nine-year-olds, or sluggish, lazy teens, instead of sweet, cuddly infants, the human race would have died out thousands of years ago. Duh.
2) The only thing worse than putting the lights on the Christmas tree is a stomach virus.
Both of these observations were made while I was putting the lights on the Christmas tree. All the other members of my family were: in time out; playing on an electrical toy/device; or outdoors making the dog bark, utterly ruining my Christmas music, and hence mood indoors.
So...what are you doing on this pre-Gaudete Sunday?
