Christmas came together, BUT I did hit the anger stage of grief. Unfortunately for my Mom, I was driving her and I to "Oliver" downtown. Those poor people. I honked at stupid lost people that were looking around more than driving a 5000 vehicle. I cut people off from cutting to the end of the lane before the exit saying, "Okay, you have been warned of this for 3 miles and now you are getting over?!?!?!? Hit me! Your car is WAY better than mine! Yeah, I thought so." My Mom meekly asked, "You okay? You seem a little tightly strung?" while she squinted her eyes like, "Don't hurt me, please don't hurt me." I answered with, "People think their lives are SOOO important and they are not, they are rude and fighting for position for what?!??! And then really good people die....." As we pulled into the parking stall, I cried. I am okay now, but if you are stupid or shallow don't cross paths with me. Consider yourselves warned. Merry Christmas!
As for the boys, I have gotten really good at hiding gifts and, like I always do on December 23rd, I was worried a bit that we did not get them enough. Would it be a Christmas to remember? When I was little, I remembered Christmas morning to be a roaring fire in the fireplace and my Dad waking me up because HE was so excited. I remember the Teddy Bear Christmas and the Bike Christmas. I do not remember the Christmas I did not get enough, I remember two presents. Two in 44 years. That's enough.
Gotta go....I hear scurrying......
May you have a beautiful Christmas and may everyday of your life represent the best of you and yours, Ang
