Merry Christmas and Happy Hoidays and Let It SNOW! LET IT SNOW! LET IT SNOW!
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! December 25th is coming quicker than lightning now. We got lights outside and on the tree, packages wrapped and sent, and cards mailed. Not so many cookies, cakes or candy this time, though. I'm seeing Weight Watchers in my future.
We had a early Christmas with our son and his family. They have gone to Georgia to be with her family for the holidays this year. We have had them all to ourselves for a number of years. She takes our grandson and goes home for a couple or three weeks in the summer, so it isn't as if they haven't seen her family for years. As I've mentioned before none of our kids are coming for the holidays and it is okay with me. We had planned to go to the movie and out to dinner on Christmas day, but I think I fractured a rib on Wednesday. I've had a fractured rib before and it was pretty bad, but this seems to be a little more intense. I talked with the nurse at my doc's office and she thought the same as me. The treatment is the same if it is bruised or broken. Time. I have some pain medication already because of back problems and it helps for sure. I'd have already been at the ER if I didn't have it. However, today seems a little worse and I'm hoping she is in the office tomorrow.
Going to the movie is pretty much totally out for me now. I went to the nail shop yesterday and it didn't go all that well backwise and ribwise. So, I'm glad we hit all the big shows in town last weekend. On Saturday my husband took me to see "The Nutcracker". That has to be true love! I was all oohing and aahhing over all the little girls in tutus and velvet and taffeta party dresses out with either their grandmother or mother. They were so sweet. The ballet was performed well, and the new sets and costumes were lovely. The Bass Hall was all shiny and pretty and had tables full of souvenirs on green cloths and nutcrackers coming up the middle. It was festive as could be.
The next morning I saw that my local yarn shop was offering a class about fixing dropped stitches and what to do if your work falls off the needles and how to keep from having a stroke if it happens. It was a beneficial class for me. When I got back home I didn't want to watch football, so we went to see "The Life of Pi". That was a good movie and calls up some theological and philosophical questions we might not have thought about before. On Monday, our anniversary, we went back to the movie to see "The Hobbit". I've been a Tolkien fan for more years that I'd like to admit. We both enjoyed it, but it will be a little while before I'm ready to go back for another movie right away, plus I'm not sure I can sit that long.
On the upside the world didn't end Friday, so that was a relief.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all and to all a goodnight. Oh yes! I nearly forgot! The weather man is saying we might have a white Christmas!! That would really be something. The last time that happened was in 1841. Texas was a Republic then. We had gained independence from Mexico, but had not joined the United States. Now that is a long time. Crossing my fingers hoping the weather dude knows what is going on. Even Wunderground says it is probable.
LET IT SNOW!!!
