I think you hit the nail on the head, CAH.

I hate that but everyone has a busy schedule and we just cannot seem to get off work at the same time. I see my parents and grandchildren every single day but my daughter is a teacher and I chat with her all the time but really don't get a lot of time to hang out with her. With the rest of the family, it's usually just visiting on Thanksgiving and Christmas only.

Sorry for rambling but us sentimental people just don't want to let go of Christmas!!!

I actually feel okay since joining these forums but I understand what you all are going through! I been there before! I feel just a little blah but I'm okay.

I hope you (and everyone else) feel better soon!!!

I just posted my resume online Sunday night, and all of this attention. Still not from the company I am hoping for, so I have to prep for my first interview in over 12 years. Back to work on Friday for me, just trying to enjoy the last few days.

Have a great day!

Woke up to a chilly morning here in northern California. It is a sunshiny day with blue skies and no breeze. I was able to eat a little last night, but not a lot. I think it is time for another vitamin infusion. That's how tired I feel. I go for an MRI tomorrow for a bone density scan. Bring on the Xanex!!! I hate those machines!

I'm doing the same thing!

Yesterday I gatherd all Christmas decor into one spot. I hope to get the ornaments off the trees this week. I'm labeling & organizing bins this year, so I'm taking my time. DH was still listening to Christmas music last night- Mr. Scrooge really does have the spirit this year & I am glad! I took down Christmas decor @ work today.
