Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you all have a good Christmas day with low pain.

Jerome's dad sent us a gift card for Christmas. Don't make the mistake we made. We went to WalMart, and I have to say I will never do that again on Christmas Eve night again. nono It was a mad house. People everywhere. I had to use my wheelchair because there were no more electric scooters left.

I was so intimidated by everyone else being up higher than I was. I nearly had a panic attack. I have problems when I get in crowds as it is. I had this feeling that just kept nagging me. I almost backed out going. Now I wish I would have.

I normally love shopping, but not tonight. I'm so glad to be home. I'm sitting here doing deep breathing to calm down.


Everyone take care.

love and hugs

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight.
 
My wish is that all of us wake up in the morning and have healed by some miracle.
 
So some heavy praying here folks!!!!!  All for a good reason, please to all dont overwork, you know you will pay for it the next day.
 
I am sorry but I do not remember the person who prayed for a new roof, and money to get her meds, to you I say, you must have the super power, so pray that we all wake up healed.  I know you can do it, lol.
 
Take care,

Merry Christmas Loretta. I hope that you and hubby have a wonderful day together. WalMart on Christmas Eve, wow, you are one brave sole, no way would I have the nerve for that one, lol. I drove over to my sons earlier and was surprised to see WalMart still packed at 6:00pm. Last minute shoppers I am sure.

Take care.

Merry Christmas to all of our online family.

Twas the night before christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.

I was Mrs Clause at a mall a couple years ago and I was reading the night before christmas to a group of children and a little boy climbed into my lap....he just got out of the hospital and he knew the story by heart. It touched me so much and when the story was finished he wrapped his little arms around my neck and hugged me. He wanted snow for christmas. When Santa and I went home that night it started to snow and continued all chrisrmas day.I pray for him every night.

I just wanted to share that story with you.

happy Holidays

Betsey, thank you for sharing that story, that was truly beautiful and I was very touched.  Those are the moments that will live in our hearts forever.  It was truly a beautiful story, and I see that I have repeated myself, so it must be time to get off and find something else to do.
 
I am not sure what, I am having an insomnia night, I really dont know why, usually I can pinpoint the cause, stress, etc. I am guessing its the holiday hoo haa.  I have already almost completed making my special breakfast.  Which brings me to you Straydog, what a wonderful idea.  Here is my Christmas morning breakfast I have been making for about 8 -9 years, and they never seem to get tired of it.  I have asked all of them, "do you want me to try something new" and I get a very loud NO.  So here it is.
 
one loaf of itlian bread, cut into about 2 or so inches, then cut down the middle of those.  I cook the sausage then cut that in half, then I cut several pieces of muenster (I had to look in the frig to spell muenster), then I crack 2 eggs, along with some milk, (like french toast batter type stuff).
 
I then lightly coat the large frying pan with canola or olive oil, let that get a little heated, in the mean time, I open, but try not to break the bread I have cut, I stuff the bread with 2 pieces of sausage (give of take) then I stuff the cheese in also, then I smush it together, dip it in the egg, milk bowl, (of course I whip the egg and milk together) then in the pan it goes, and  I have been doing it so long, I dont really time it anymore, just fry it up like french toast, turn over and fry the other side, and voila (oh you know what I was trying to say), serve it up with syrup and fresh fruit, strawberries, kiwi, oranges, and whatever your family might like.  Mine gobble it up in minutes, of course they do that with anything I cook, we come from a long line of gobblers.  And thanks Straydog, that was a great idea, hope if anyone trys it you all enjoy it as much as my family.
 
Happy Holidays to all, and here's hoping all are feeling well on this day, and all the days to come.
 
Take care,
