Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone!!

Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving when all through the kitchen
Not a creature was stirring not even a kitten
The cornucopia was placed on the table with care
In preparation for the feast we all soon will share

The family was nestled all snug in their beds
while visions of turkey and football danced in their heads......



Thats all I could think of right now its 2:30 in the morning ::
Goodnight everyone!

Sorry don't want to spoil your mood, but I am sad right now and need to rant a little.

Yesterday we (=family) recieved a official letter from our landlady (house owner). She informed us that she will be vacating our flat to march 2012 the latest. Our house will be teared down sometime around July or August 2012! We lived there since 18 years and it's a big shock to us.

It won't be easy to rent a new flat, because we live in a region with high rents and I am not sure my parents will be able to pay such high rents. If they move away, my mother will be forced to quit her job and search a new one, which doesn't make it any easier.

Now my sister and I have look if we find an affordable flat for ourself, because then my parents can choose a smaller flat which will be cheaper. Could you please pray for us? That would be soooo nice!

That is terrable news. am sure you are gutted. thats the worst about renting your always at the landlords mercy. and 18 years is a long time
But somtimes as one door closes another opens. so hopefully it will work out good for you all.

Bonjour every one! Happy Thanksgiving to all! (or is that tomorrow, any way, can never be too early calling out, 'Happy Thanksgiving!')

what an awful situation, i hope you can make something wonderful out of this problem, since getting an apartment for yourself can be quite lovely as well, even though, it sounds horrible if you are forced. I hope all of you can find a great solution!

i agree we used to have disney's christmas carol in Dutch when i was a child, and we would always laugh, since in Dutch Ebenezer is called Uncle Dagobert. Only when we were older we realized that Uncle Dagobert is what's strange and in most parts of the world he is called Ebenezer hahaha

The branches couldn't hold half of my ornaments and it is so unstable that I'm afraid it's going to fall over at any moment. It wasn't a cheap tree so I'm really not happy right now.
i'm sorry to hear you're disappointed, could you maybe cheer yourself up and get a very small little christmas three on the side, so that you can put the ornaments you've got left in there, and you feel a little better? Is there nothing you can do about the unstableness? maybe put something underneath it? Try and find a decorating solution, it might help you feel more cheerful, you can't go an entire season feeling unhappy!
