It is eight days till Christmas. In order to get things done smoothly without having to be trapped amongst the stressy holiday crowds, I planned and decided to get things moving along earlier than most people.
After inviting the parents-in-law to celebrate Christmas Eve dinner with us, D and I made a quick online order from our go-to butcher. We decided to pick-up our order on the feast day itself so things are fresh and I do not need to fuss with making space in the fridge.
In the afternoon, we went to one grocery store, bought the things we would need, and got that one off our to-do-list. One down… and ten more to go!
