Wierd and quiet day


Tom showed up at 2:15am.  Notta word.  Nothing to be said really.  I have already explained to Miss T that he spent quite a bit of money (and not all on booze - - ahem) and that there is the possibility that we may be staying home instead of heading to Florida.

She was very understanding.  She actually offered me her $105 birthday money that she's been saving.

What a great kid.     

We'll have to see what "Santa" can come up with.

Most of the day was lazy......Tom made meatball's for the dinner at Nanny's.


We all went....and of course my SIL was "waiting on" my nephew to wake up from his nap  ...... again with that.  Every holiday. 

So we began without them. 


My ho hum Uncle and his daughter (38) showed up....boring.  Weird group.  Roomie went with us too.  Lots of finger foods, pigs n blanket, crab cakes, quiche, ham pinwheels, cheeseball, sausage balls etc, the like.



Once back home, I let Miss T open 3 gifts, saving one for in the morning.  Tom didn't bother to join us.  His loss.  I think he's in bed now (10:15pm).


Well......according to the Santa Tracker, the Big Guy is in Joao Pessoa.....the easternmost tip of South America.  Right on time too! 

It won't be long until he hits the East coast of the Great USA, so I'm outta here like a fat kid playing dodgeball!

Nite all and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I'm sorry Sharon. I hope things will work out and that you'll be able to make it to Florida. I'm really looking forward to it.
Merry Christmas and Holiday hugs, Martha

You have yourself a Merry little Christmas and if Tom doesn't want to join in you are absolutely correct in saying it is his loss.  Miss T and you deserve better, much better.  Take care.  Cute email you sent.

I hope you will still be able to find a way to get to Florida but if not I know you will have a wonderful and special Christmas with Miss T, even if Tom is sleeping.  I think that was great that he made meatballs for everyone.  (I'm looking for the positives here....LOL) and I wish you a very wonderful 2008!!!  Have a great Christmas Day.  I hope you get lots of time to relax and enjoy the day doing whatever makes you happiest.  I feel so thankful for your wonderful comments from throughout the year.  Many got me through hard days and just wanted to wish you a happy day tonight and tomorrow!!

Your Miss T is a total sweetie.  Dang, though, they really have such an understanding of the way things are.  Enjoy yourself, Sharon, despite Tom  I hope you can get to Fla.  You do need a break.  Hope you have a Merry Christmas!  Hugs Chris

You have such a wonderful child in Miss T.  She has so much love and sense in her.  She should be your focus during the Christmas holiday.  I hope you will all have a nice Christmas.  Luv ya!

I just got caught up with your last post and this one.  My heart goes out to you that Tom slipped up again at Christmas time.  I'll be keeping you and your daughter in my thoughts and prayers today.  I hope you can still make Christmas special for your daughter.  You may not feel merry today, but I sitll wish for you a very Merry Christmas.
