Now, don't get me wrong ... It's not like we have been just lazing around.
On the contrary, Teresa spent the first few days shopping until our credit card company finally waved a white flag and conceded their defeat.
With treasures in hand, Teresa then took a full day just to sort out all the gifts, and wrap them.
But do not feel sorry for our gal, because this is pure heaven to her.
I keep asking her if she has had enough, and she just keeps on smiling, and asking me to hand her another ornament.
Of course, part of her tradition, is to play her Boney M, "Greatest Christmas Songs" cd. This cd gets played from morning until night, I kid you not!!
Teresa is also busy on the phone, making Christmas plans, and going for lunches with her former co-workers. She loves those girls as much as her own family.
I know you are asking yourselves what my role is in all this.
Simple ... Stay out of her way !! Beyond helping her get the boxes out of the storage room, and maybe vacuuming up some of the mess, it is usually best for me to watch from a safe distance.
If any of you are married to perfectionists, I am sure you are nodding your head in agreement.
One thing I will admit, it sure is starting to feel like Christmas !!
