That's about as merry as I can get right now.

I was doing good.  Pretty good.  All gifts are wrapped and placed gently under the tree......

I've only got the $$$$ cards to do next (yes I have the cash).

I have reservations made for my overnighter on the 29th in VENICE FLORIDA to meet my gals.


Then today I picked up Tom's new Rx's...6 of them.

Wanna guess???


I was in shock.

Lemee 'splain:  Tom went to the doc on Monday for bloodwork.  Doc called, said all was good except his triglycerides were a bit up.  Plus I had said tell him that you're getting up all night to pee again.

So I'm thinking "all is good" as I'm picking up these meds.....until the final answer.  Now Tom is bummed about it too!

I would have liked to have been more prepared for this.  Geeesh....forget any after Christmas sales now!!

Worse, I may have to PUSH the family truckster to Florida now ROFLMAO!!!!

Sure hope Santa remembers that I'm on his GOOD list.

We've got Christmas Eve figured out now.  My Nanny's house with heavy hors n' doovies...fingerin foods.  Noon 30 dinner with Mom on the 25th.

My Fra-ra-ra attitude came on me, oh about last Friday.  Mom and I are talking it over about the Christmas festivities and how you "can't do this" because "so and so" can't or won't....and has to take a nap ... and so on.

See, we can't go to Florida pre-Christmas and be there on the 25th because (as Tara said) "Santa won't know where I am" (yes, she's a believer still).   I was thinking make a long week of it, you know, going ahead....then it occurred to me that my Nanny has always said she "wants everyone at her house Christmas Eve".

So here I am thinking:  Can't disappoint Nanny;  Can't disappoint Miss T; Do I really wanna be away from my own home at Christmas?

It got to me........why are we always worrying about "so and so" and how it will affect "their" day?  Why are we always trying to please someone else??? 

I gotta get into the spirit!

Life is full of those unexpected bills that's for sure.  Just stay happy, enjoy the season, and all will work out.  : )

i think you need a logistician to help you figure out the where and when of Christmas, LOL.  Yes, why are we always trying to please someone else?  Well, it does show you care, but Ya know, sometimes it is better take care of yourself first and then worry about the others.  I am sure you will pull Chtismas off just fine in spite of the travel and other factors.  Sorry about Tom's medicine and the associated costs.  Merry Christmas to you and family!

I'm going to go to bed now with Fra ra ra ra ra stuck in my head.  :-D  Just do what is right for you and your daughter.  The extended family will just have to understand  :-D

Lol the fra ra ra ra!!  I feel this way a lot too this time of year.  So many reasons.... I totally understand.  I may be pushing our van to TN for our ten yr anniversary too on NY Eve LOL... maybe we should caravan, we're both goin' south, except you're not up here to start the trip out with me.  LOL.  I figure our vehicles weigh enough we could just sit on top and give 'em a little roll and they oughtta roll to wherever we wanna go.  It's so tight this time of year.  Hope we both make it to wherever we need to go when we wanna go.  LOL.

Hope you find your Christmas spirit. Don't worry, there will be plenty of "spirits" down here in Florida if you know what I mean ;-)
Can't wait to see you! Martha
