Merry Christmas!

The presents have been opened. Everyone is happy with what they got this year. There are a few returns in my future.  That means I have to brave the mall in the next few days to return and/or exchange items that were the wrong size or color.  I don’t know if I am ready for that.  Long lines and packed parking lots await me.  I expect the next few days will be worse than before Christmas.  I will need to remember my deep breathing and patience as I am waiting to return items.  In any case, I will worry about that later.  The stores are closed now anyway.

In a few minutes, we are off to my sister’s house to exchange presents with her family.  My brother is on his way, too, with his family.  My sister is making everyone breakfast this morning.  We usually go over to my mom’s house for lunch.  However, as I posted the other night, she is still in Los Angeles with my aunt.  It seems that my aunt has taken a turn for the better.  In fact, she may even be able to go home from the hospital today.  I am thankful for that great news.  We will celebrate with my mom when she comes home.  That may be on New Year’s Day.

Anyway, I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone who celebrates today a happy and merry Christmas.  I hope all your Christmas wishes came true.  Peace and joy to all of you.

  1. Thank you for the kind thoughts, and I hope the holiday went well, and that your mom makes her way from LA in the coming days.
    Good luck braving the mall. I need to go, too, because our DVD remote control died on us — not the end of the world but still … not looking forward to the crowds.
    Peace,
    Kevin
