Hey, can you guys that have snow post some pics ? With your Christmas lights up ?? My DH and my DS did not put lights on the house. The darn hooks are there and they are both 6'4" ~~ so all they have to do is walk along the house and it takes 10 minutes, but NO..... I told DH never mind, we just won't have lights this year.

Trying to be upbeat about Christmas ~ I love this time of year ~ but I am easily getting down. Think it's cause of all the losses this year, I try not to think about it, but it's just not the same.

Also, both boys don't want to exchange gifts, so we are just buying for Shelby and a niece and nephew,. so when I see something I want to get one of them......I can't.
They said they would be upset if they show up and I got them something. Talk about a bummer year. I LOVE buying for others.

What do you all do for Christmas ?

Laura, that is what we are here for, support! We will not ignore anyone when they need to vent, or look for anothers opinion. When it gets dark I will take some pretty pics of our lights. We are still buying small things for the kids, nothing big and expensive, but something that may be homemade, or a useful joke item.

SS MIA again, coming down with a cold so got to stay away from my Dad for awhile. Did go to the Lions Club xmas party but really wasn't in the mood. Haven't did any xmas shop yet. I got to get started. Then to top it off, I came down with Hives. Dr said it from nerves. Hope they go away fast the itch like crazy.

Laura I know how hard it is for xmas this year. But just think of the fun with Shelby We usually celebrate with the whole family on xmas eve, but not sure this year.

Christina how's your stomach, hope it's better. SS to hear about your nephew, any news yet. Keeping you in my prayers that everything turns out well

Deb our snow all melted and now we've been getting just rain. Hope it at least snow for xmas. How did your decorating the lobby turn out. Bet it's beautiful

Lory didn't know you did crafting. I love all the craft fairs this time of year. I buy alot, all nice personal gifts.

Tex how your doing. Do you have all your christmas things done?

How is your dad doing Misty? A cold and hives

nerves make me break out too..hope your better soon !

The entrance tree and decorations look really nice..was fun having everyone around to decorate and we all had a bunch of laughs..lots of us have no family here so nice to have friends around.

A friend and i did grocery shopping for the pot luck on sunday..so there will be a bunch of cooking happening here saturday for that..looking forward to that for sure.Keeping busy so i dont get sad this season..not easy but im trying.

Tex I can't wait to get back to the gym. Are you all done with your xmas shopping. Busy time of year.

Deb yup those darn hives are sure itchy. On my upper body hope I don't get them on my face But alot better today. My Dad just seems to have given up and the worse thing is we can't do anything because his mind is all there. He even turned down all ivs. And won't eat.
Sounds like you tenents are alot of fun. How many are in your building. Not doing much decorating here but did put up a few things today. Spent the day cooking and cleaning and it actually felt good.

Christina how are you. I haven't been on here to often and miss you all.

Been doing good stuff though - did some power shopping tonight so am 90% done with gift getting. DH and I decided for forgo gifts for each other this year and instead are getting some gifts for kids in two families that lost everything on their first floor of their homes during the hurricane.
Not sure what to get my father or brother yet...but I will figure that out soon enough

Now to wrap, decorate, eat, drink and be merry! LOL

Hugs to you all!!!

I'm off to go collapse on the couch...it's almost 9 and it will be the first time I have sat down and done nothing all day since I woke this morning.

NIGHT everyone

Morning Everyone, It's a rainy day here. The snow melted It's up on the mountains around us, but just rain down here. Yesterday was a very painful day, I should have known all the running around will have me in more pain than usual. Talked to my oldest yesterday before he leaves. It was good to get to talk to him, just sad that he will be gone for the holiday.

Christina, glad to see ya back. Xanax=the breakfast of champions!! lol

everyone! I'm running down. I've been so busy and today just had no energy. I managed to get through Pilates class and then walked a mile on the indoor track, played the monthly Bingo games and then attended the arthritis support group meeting. Got a free chair massage at the meeting and won a 30 body massage! Have two trips to the Corpus Christi area and an afternoon party within the next three days. Hoping things will slow down soon!

Morning all- woke to snow, just a bit, but it's falling gently. Have anyone of you thought of joining the Red Hat ladies? My girlfriend and I are thinking of joining. We have been researching and it looks like a fun way to build friendships and embrace our getting "older".
