We are trying to make it a much more Jesus centered Christmas.

Next Tuesday 17th with be my last work day until Jan 2nd as the college shuts down for Christmas break. I'm really looking forward to the break. Just wish we had gabulldawg's weather. As many of you know, I love snow and cold weather. It was 19 this morning when I left for work but we are expecting a much too warm high of 43 today.

Have a blessed day everyone.
Keeping you & your family in my thoughts & prayers, friend. Sending you all lots of love. Merry Christmas~

Of course, when you look up her symptoms online, it lists things like leukemia, which has her even more worried.

It is a toasty 10 degrees outside right now. I have to go run and start my car before heading out. I have a doctor appointment of my own, nothing major and no need to worry. We are going to have to run for groceries either tonight or tomorrow. We are expected to get somewhere between 4-6 inches of snow this weekend. The meteorologists have been wrong all season, so who knows! Maybe we'll get a blizzard or nothing at all.

I have to run but I am going to try my best to catch up when I get home this afternoon!
Your Mom is still in my prayers 💗

Good luck at your appointment!!

They are doing "The Lost Christmas Eve" this year, which I have never seen before. I think last year was the 1st year for it & this year is the last, so I am really glad we went. They are just amazing! I'm still in awe!!! Hard to imagine how they make all that happen - but to make that all happen for just 1 show - the set up, the tear down, the travel & on to the next. Unbelievable!!!

When I woke up this morning the digital thermometer at our house said 0š & the wired thermometer said -2š! It was a bitter walk back to our car after the concert last night too. That wind...

They are still calling 3-6" of snow for tomorrow night/Saturday!

Hope you are all having a great day!
Glad you enjoyed TSO!!

This is the first year in over 10 years that I haven't been to their concert. Such an amazing & powerful show!

Enjoy your snow!! ❄️

Be safe, warm and MERRY!!!
I love that movie, too! One of my faves!!

Hope you feel better 💗

Jennifer- Still praying for your mom. I try to never look up symptoms online. It will always scare you.

Holiday- Glad you had a great time at the concert!!!! Your weather sounds pretty much identical to here.

Meceka- Stay warm friend and I hope you start feeling better soon!!!

Snowflake- Hope you are having a good day at work!! If you get here real quick after work, we can go see TSO. They are here tonight!!

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.
I am so sorry for your loss! Sending prayers! May she rest in peace! No more suffering. Just hard for everyone left behind - especially this time of year.

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.

Oh my gosh! I would say you are right - hot chocolate & Home Alone movies were the only intellingent thing to do at that point! Sorry to hear that happened to your MIL! What a pain! I hope everything turns out ok! How nice of you to go help her with it!
