Tea Time with Tiffany #77 - Nefarious illnesses & belly dancing into the New Year...

Hi all! I'm happy to be with you again for Tea Time, even if I'm muddling through a week's worth of illnesses to do so...

Today I fill you in on the evil pestilence that has been sweeping through my household, as well as the exciting (albeit nerve wracking) dance gig I have coming up at a restaurant on New Year's Eve.

A sword.
A buffet line with lots of transversing people who may have been drinking.
A somewhat clumsily inclined belly dancer.

What could go wrong?!

How is your Advent ending? What are your Christmas plans? What is your Christmas Mass timeslot of choice? I would love to hear from you!


  1. I'm excited to hear how your New Year's Eve dancing goes! :-)
    We will be going to the 6 pm Christmas Eve Mass. That's the one we usually attend, along with most of my extended family. At some point in my life, I'd like to get to a midnight Mass somewhere. After that, we will do our little Secret Santa exchange amongst the siblings (which Jake is now a part of) & eat Christmas cookies.
    Christmas morning is reserved just for our family, then we're hosting dad's side in the afternoon. We'll have about 30 extra people here. Tomorrow is cleaning day to prepare for that, since today is the last day of school for mom and the girls.

  2. Hi Sam! Wow, that's a lot of people, but that's so beautiful! When I was growing up, we always went to Mass on Christmas Eve. Our dinner with my grandparents was always afterward, and I seem to remember that not being until 7 or 7:30 pm, so most likely our Mass was at 5 or 6 pm. Since I had small kids, I'd started dreading Christmas Eve Mass more and more, because of the lack of seating, and the length. When we moved to Christmas Day when Anne was a baby, I couldn't believe the difference in terms of ease! Both are good for different reasons. :) I'd love to attend a Midnight Mass too someday, but I'd be one of those advocating for a 10 pm Midnight Mass, just so that I had a prayer of being awake for it. :0
