It's raining. It's gloomy outside my door. My arthritic hands are groaning in protest against this winter-less Christmas season. I am going to have to get out and push my own Christmas Spirit wagon today. Its engine of self-propulsion seems to have bogged down.
The decorations are two-thirds done.
The gift wrapping is one-third done.
The cleaning is one-third done.
But the Christmas baking is all done!
So on this dreary day, let's add it all up:
2/3 decorations + 1/3 gift wrapping + 1/3 cleaning + 1/1 baking = 2-1/3
(And that's how math works this week!)
Now if anyone asks if I'm ready for Christmas I can say,
"You bet! I'm more than double ready."
Be safe my friends.
Let's all be home for Christmas.
