SnowMaiden, I am excited about getting into the house, too. My health is bad and our landlord just raised the rent $100 and living on a very fixed income, now, that smarts. I think Dad began looking for a house to buy, to help us out and to give him some company, too. Dad's already said he knows we will be decorating the house like mad for Christmas and he's all for it.
I never thought at 42, I;d be in the state I am, no longer able to work and having been forced to go through my life savings and 401k, while awaiting my disability approval, but thank God for family and friends, with their support and help, life is good.
We began having a Christmas Eve get together at our apartment a couple of years ago and would like to continue that tradition, this year, including Dad, of course.
I've seen a lot of folks mention putting on the tree lights and relaxing to Christmas tunes....I do that all the time, too, a bonus is if it snows during the day and I can enjoy that along with the twinking lights and music.
