Yes, thank you Kitt for starting this topic now. I just got off the phone with my sister who lives here and wanted to know if I'd booked a flight to be with all of them at their daughter's, my dear niece, out of state. I've been hoping the flights will all be full now so I have an excuse to not go. They were close to full at Thanksgiving.
And I'm feeling guilty. I do want to be there--but the effort of going and all the activity while there seems too much.
A friend is in a similar situation, only it's because her family is dysfunctional so she's also staying in town. She said--yes, it's sad thinking about it, but the days before Christmas come fast and then it's over all in one day.
It sounds a little cynical in a way. But if the true meaning of Christmas is kept in one's heart the day is still special.
YES lol i will get lots of turkey n stuffing into me and some for you...ummmm i can taste it already.....
..I will be thinking of you ....huggles lyn
