I was 'resting my eyes' in my fibro-chair and the hubby must have thought I was sleeping.  I watched him tip toe through the family room with....a brand new chainsaw.  Am I getting a chainsaw from Santa this year?  OMG...a fibromite with a chainsaw?  I DID mention that we needed one to cut some of the really thick branches on the 200 year old oak tree in the backyard.  Has he forgotten that I cut all the wires to the central air unit with hedge clippers because they looked just like the holly branches?
Oh well...I hope he enjoys the new state of the art heating pad and lavender soap basket I got him...tee hee. 
It's the thought that counts and here's wishing my fibro family and wonderful, painfree Christmas.

Wow Donna,

A chainsaw??? It looks like he got himself a gift that will eventually help you. But that blows my mind. hahaha. Yes and I like your gift for him, though you should have gotten him a hot tub or something, hahaha...

You are the best my friend.

Have a great holiday too!!!

Hugs, Karen

PS maybe he will make you a fort in that big ole tree. lol...

Maybe he needs it to saw through the drifts so you can get your car out of the driveway!  devil

I thought I was one of the only ones with weird gifts. My kids and other half know I'm unusual so
I got last year a real nice screwdriver set (I do most of the repair work at home) and a can opener.
One of my favorite gifts was a pink screwdriver that said "Property of Mom".
I like the chainsaw though, there aren't a whole lot of trees left in your city. Are you using it
to open your garage? Kinda like a giant canopener?
Happy Holidays and Bless your humor.

Donna, Donna, Donna!

Don't you remember, you DIDN"T cut the A C wires, that must have been some of those bad elves. You were w/ us that day, you weren't even home at the time. DENY, DENY, DENY!

The strangest gift was from my dear friend. She handed me a package addressed to my DH AND me. I opened it up and found a lovely bracelet. shocked  I looked at the gift card again, b/c I thought I had misread it. Nope, it had both our names on it. She told me she got that b/c she knew it would make my DH sooo happy to see me in a lovely bracelet. oookkk??

I have a set of tools that I keep in the kitchen, they are purple!! I used to have ppl use my tools and they never found their way back to the drawer. Now, ppl don't want to use them, don't know why. devil

Donna, I hope your family is doing well, I know how stressful it is when things touch the ppl you love. My prayers are w/ you. Have a Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.

God bless.  Alice.

My hubby rocks. I mentioned last night that I hoped there was a crossword puzzle book in my stocking. He went out and braved Walmart on Christmas Eve to get me one! It took me awhile to figure it out and I haven't told him that I did figure it out. He totally rocks.

The chainsaw wasn't for me!!!  He was keeping it for one of our friends who was going to give it to her husband and didn't want him to find it!  Instead I got a lovely, pink cashmere sweater which I tried on immediately...went to my son's house last night to exchange presents and within ten minutes of being there I had dripped cocktail sauce down the front. can only imagine what I would have done with a chainsaw!
Have a wonderful day everyone...
