In theory it should have been a simple day. I went to the car dealership that rents my husband's vehicle to him for the tour and renewed his contract till he returns. Then I drove back to Lakeland to Michael's craft store to buy new icicle lights which supposedly we're 70 percent off. By the time I got there they were sold out. I then went to 7 more stores all of which were either overpriced or sold out. I'll try again in the morning.

I got back to the house and was ready to get to work decorating and making presents when my mother in law called and asked me to come down to her house with my laptop to help her. While she was in New Orleans visiting her daughter her wallet was stolen. She found out that they ran up to charges on her debit card, credit card, Sears charge card, as well as the credit card of the elderly woman for whom she is a private duty home health care nurse. She was told to keep the card in order to buy groceries and household supplies for the patient. When they stole her wallet they also obviously got her drivers license, and her Social Security card. I spent the afternoon down there with my laptop trying to fix everything for her and order new cards and replace everything.

By the time I got back to my house I decided the only intelligent thing to do was sit in front of the Christmas tree with some hot chocolate and watch Home Alone, and Home Alone 2.

Graywolf70 that's terrible for your poor mother in law. What an awful thing to have happen.

It's tough - especially for me - to imagine the physical and emotional suffering Cassie is going through right now. Obviously, this time of year is something we all celebrate and cherish, and I can only hope that she can be strong during this Season and wish her and her family nothing but the best.

Again, thank you very much to everyone here. Your constant compassion is just another reason why I know that MMC has the best people on the internet and why I am truly grateful that you all are only a few clicks away. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
Continued prayers for them.

My vacation for the week after Christmas has finally been approved, I only put in for it back in August. It is a relief knowing I have that coming up.
Just winding down visiting MMC and watching "Home Alone 2."

I should catch some shut eye soon.


Good night, everyone.
I'm so happy that your vacation week has been approved!!!
