HO HO HO!

Postby dle » Dec 25th, 2017, 8:04 am

It's 6:35 a.m Christmas morning.......I have the tree a'twinkling, the fireplace is on, the candles a'winking, and a big mug of tea and a butter tart (ya okay it's not the breakfast of champions but it's Christmas!) as I wait for other signs of life around here.

I've used this alone-time before the fun chaos to enjoy the pretty scene. I'm remembering other fun Christmas times spent with family and friends sadly no longer here with me, and sending big celestial hugs to them as they now celebrate with the angels. What I love about the spirit of Christmas is I can actually feel those hugs right back so all is well!

HOWEVER.......I can only stand so much peace & quiet and patience is not my strong suit so I'm afraid some loud noises will have to "accidentally" happen soon.....I'm ready to get this party started!

Have a Merry Christmas full of peace, love & joy and may 2018 bring you health, happiness & something very super-cool that you were not expecting!

Kids are at "bio dads" this year and the wife did an evening shift last night so , she's still sleeping as she does it again today.

A few beers , maybe a rum and coke , a ham sammich or two and a day of internet golf for me!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS !

The holidays are terrible. It's just a chance for family members to get together and fight.

Queeniekins, well, I haven’t given it a thought yet... drink beer, do a little home improvement, try out my new staple gun on upholstering old chairs. Probably not drink and staple at the same time ;-)

Ya, you don't wanna inadvertently staple anything valuable to the chairs. Best to imbibe after wielding said potentially dangerous devices. :up:

@Horgan, Christmas magnifies family problems to the max, too much stress and pressure and idealism mixed and the combo is explosive. Couldn't agree more at times.
