Since the stores are closed Christmas I need to make a little menu.. I don't need to make a ton to feed an army.. I would rather munch on the turkey, if that is still good.. and the rib roast..

Ok I am going to try and do a few things...

You know what sounds good is strawberries and whipped cream with Angel Food cake...I guess I will have to hunt that down tomorrow..

I am staying put for the rest of the day cleaning, watching Christmas movies, and reading. Amazon will deliver a couple of gifts DH and DS's gifts tomorrow, and that's it.

We are doing a simple brunch with SIL and BIL on Christmas day with mimosas, eggnog, white-chocolate mochas, bacon, sausage, egg-sausage- crescent roll casserole I found on Pinterest, blueberry pancakes, and hash browns.

Then I'm making spiral-cut ham with ranch oven-roasted potatoes, mac-n-cheese, green beans, and green salad for an early dinner, followed by apple and berry pies with ice cream.

My sister-in-law doesn't cook, she just told me over Thanksgiving that she has no pots and pans, which doesn't surprise me. Unfortunately, they don't even have a kitchen or any other table to eat at. So she is bringing the champagne and orange juice for the mimosas, as well as the eggnog. I have already planned, purchased, and will cook and clean up all the rest.

I am doing it for DH because this is his brother and we want to have family for the holidays, but this is how it's always been, and I can't help but feel used. It's not about the money I spend, but mostly about the fact that I have put in a lot of time and effort to cook for them and clean after them, as they wouldn't even lift a finger to help with the after-meal clean up.

My sister in law always eats, then says she is tired, goes to my formal living room to sleep on the couch and I have to get her a blanket. When she wakes up and hour or so later, she comes to us and tells her husband they have to leave, so they up and leave. this has happened, without fail, for the last 7 years. I feel bad for her husband, but he allows her to act this way and follows her lead. I feel like a hotel/diner where you don't get paid. She participates in no food preparation, comes over, eats, sleeps, and leaves. She is a grown 45 y.o. woman! All the cleanup is left for me.

And she wanted to come over as early as Christmas Eve and spend Christmas Eve and Day at my house. I managed to weasel out of that one.

Sorry, don't mean to complain about relatives, and have tried very hard not to, but this year somehow it's all spilling out. Thanks for letting me vent.
oh eliza i would love to come over and help cook SIGH when i was little that is how it was at Mommies whoever came over helped cook and it was such a fun time and i would help clean up too i am not one bit good at it but i would try

We used to get big chunks of hard candy that was black and licorice flavored. It came in a scuttle with a little hammer.

What the heck?!?! I am going to get around and take hubs out of the house. He is going insane. We are going to get the reloading stuff so he can make some bullets. Hahaha I might convince him to take me to shopko too. Just to browse. I might find something I have to have!

Yup, a quiet Christmas would be nice. I love those two, they are family, but I object to being their mother and taking care of them all the time -at 39 and 45 years old!

Wow, wonder when I'm going to get this "energy" that all these weight loss surgery patients talk about. I sure haven't gotten it yet. I need a nap and it's not even noon.
LOL Maybe they don't do as much as you do! Have you thought about that?!

We had decided to do a gift exchange for a predetermined amount of $50, so we were trying to find out what each other would like, in general terms. I said I like Diamond brand nuts and Lindt candy bars and glittery gel pens- stuff one can find in any store, without being too demanding or specific.

Here is a text I got from her for her and her husband's gifts that I need to go buy for them:


Is it just me, or do these people think I have a whole day to run around town and buy them their specific gifts? I think if they are so picky and specifically tell me what to buy them, they can go get it their own darn self! They are not my children and I think it is rude to be so demanding and specific.

They could have just said we would enjoy pajama gifts, candy gifts, coffee gifts, and whiskey. It made me feel like she thinks I have bad taste and she needs to spell her specific requirements out for me so I don't mess up their gifts that I'm paying for.
well, Eliza, first off: Hats off to you for putting your foot down and not letting them come over on Christmas Eve! Some people are users and she apparently is one. I am sad for you but you are doing this for your dh so you get huge brownie points! Do dh and ds help with cooking and cleanup? I would try to get them items that are easily available at most stores like you listed for her to get for you guys. So pick off the list the items you know that you do not have to go out of your way to get. Or maybe next year you should put specific high end requests down as they have done and see what happens. Maybe she likes to shop those stores and so would prefer to get you something from there anyway.You never know!

Chews, have you ever thought of getting a Teaching certificate? It's only a few extra courses to your degree, the pay is decent, and you have many months off.
Yes, and you could just do it as a Substitute so you are essentially working PRN. I have been told by folks here that our district pays Subs more per hour than full time teachers so there you go.

If she makes any remarks about not liking cashews take them back. You can use them to make cashew chicken and have them over for dinner and serve cashew chicken.

Melinda, I was driving in that MO snow, and I wouldn't call it beautiful. It was complete white out.

Eliza, I believe I would tell her as soon as the two of you got through cleaning up the kitchen, you could both take a nap!!
