It’s about 16 hours before my sister and nephew arrive. I’m almost done making the place look presentable. But, I am suddenly feeling panicky. They will be here until January 2nd. While I am glad they w’ll be staying with me, I am nervous about the whole thing. My younger sister and her daughter who lives here in Chicago will also be spending Christmas with us. This is the first time since Mom died 8 years ago that we will all be spending Christmas together. This should make for interesting times.
