My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
Ours were Ok, not everything went as planned.
I was laid off from my job the week before Christmas. I was working for a school district that was having major buget issues. They had to lay off alot of their staff. That same day I won a GC for a local grocery store on the radio station contest which entered me into their granprize drawing. Well on Christmas Eve Morning the radio station called me at 6 am to tell me that I won the grandprize which was a new car!
Anyway Christmas eve/day were a bit more hectic then what we would have liked so we have a already discussed changes that we will make. There were other events duringthe month that were not well planned out or were planned at last minute by other family members that were not as enjoyable as I would have liked it to be so this year we will focus more on out little family and plan and attend events that our kids will be able to enjoy to the fullest. We have also talked about do a jingle bell jaunt with the kids this year since our son should be old enough to enjoy it.
We actually had a wonderful Christmas. My youngest BIL cam to visit, and was here for a week. He and my son had a great time playing together. Watching DS face on Christmas Eve as he came downstairs to see his toys was priceless. We spent the Holiday with family and great friends. It was almost perfect!
on reflection, mine was lovely, not as amazing as i would have wanted it to be on christmas day/boxing day but that was my own fault for running late on a few things, also i was not happy with the way i decorated my home, i am gonna put alot more effort in this year with that, apart from that the build up was fantastic. let's all promise to make christmas 2008 one to remember - i can't wait! (talk about wishing my life away, haha!)
well mine did not go as planed but one thing did my christmas display whent off with out a hich thank god but one thang that did make everything bad is my mom was in the nursing home and she did not come home for christmas she broke her foot and stayed in the nursing home for 4 months and well lets just say we did not have a christmas last year we had it in Jan.
Christmas 2007 -celebrating the "season" works well and spreads out the fun. But --- I was too tired to go to Christmas Eve Services with family. That was NOT GOOD! So, for Christmas 2008 - I hope to have so much done in advance that I will be well-rested! And ready to calmly enjoy precious things - like Christmas Eve Services!
