My kids AND husband opted to stay up until midnight so they could open their presents. That definitely takes the pressure off having to get up early. I have spent the last two days cooking. It was my first attempt at making a prime rib and it turned out pretty darn good if I do say so myself. My favorite dish of the day was key lime pie from scratch. It was a labor of newfound love because zesting and squeezing a billion tiny key limes really is a pain in the ass! It was well worth it though. I have been craving it for a long time.
Now I am sitting with my feet up hoping that the back pain from hunching over wrapping presents and cooking for two days will go away.
This was my first sober Christmas in a long time. It was a nice change. I think I'll keep it up!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
