The Holiday Season
The holiday season is upon us. You know, Thanksgiving, the solstice, Chanukah, Christmas, and that season that brought us all to Oakland every year, New Year's...
Got plans? Got strong feelings about the season? Tell all!
Izzie I hope you heal up real soon, enjoy the rest while you can :) Peace
maybe you have been GOING AND GOING so much, you needed to slow down and take some time for yourself and be with your family. the grate spirit works in strange ways. good luck with the ankle and heal soon.!!
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
izzie. Hope your ankle is better soon!!!
Christmas this year will suck, as looks like I cannot afford a ticket to see the kids, so will be here in Spain, trying to pretend is no holiday. Sob!
BUT New Year's Eve will be really great. Gilles will arrive on the 29th from Toulouse, and with my boss José and his girlfriend and two other friends, we will be taking a 3 hour roadtrip to a National Park on the Portugese border. Will get to see a bigger stretch of Andalucia by car, stay in a hotel in the park, hike and explore and enjoy nature, and party w/my friends. Will be a little mini-U.N between us all (one guy coming is Portugese, 3 Spanish people, Crazy French guy, and me. And will also be alot of fun!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live.
you seem to have had a very eventful couple of months..or is this normal for you? Whatever the case I am glad at least that your unwelcome break has also led to a welcome one!!! Happy healing!
Healing beams to that ankle! And enjoy the family time.
So I drove out to CO from SoCal to be with my hubby and son for Thanksgiving. My poor old pickup truck took a header in Tonopah AZ (not Tonopah NV!) so I got to spend an night with my favorite uncle in Phoenix, which was great. I got to Colorado on Sunday the 11/18 to spend the rest of the week here with my Boys.
I took a header off my front deck the following day, Monday, and broke a bone in my ankle. Surgery is set for 11 December. My mom was just blown away that I was laid up, and since we'd talked about me and my Boys driving back to MD for Christmas but now my foot was all jacked up and I can't drive at all, she ponied up for 3 airline tickets to fly us all back home for Christmas.
My poor boss... I'm working as much as I can from home, and he's been great. Totally supportive and positive. I have plenty of sick leave I can use up, and he's been very cool.
So instead of Thanksgiving week and then Christmas week, I'm getting both and everything in between! oh, and surgery in the middle.
to be grateful :)
Your no Grinch GRTUD!!
I'm working on a plan to hold Christmas hostage. In the middle of the night, I will emerge from my underground lair and sneak into every home in the world (or at least my hometown) and steal all the presents, ornaments, stockings and even the roast b...
(suddenly the sound of Dr. Evil's henchman, No. 2, clearing his throat interrupts), "Yeah ah, Dr. I'm afraid that there was a fellow that already did that very same thing. He returned all the items and became a hero to the entire season of Christmas.
Throw me a frickin' bone people! I've been frozen for thirty years!
