I hope all is well. May all of you have many blessings, love and happiness!
I know many people are struggling, or can’t be with their families because of world events. they are in my prayers even if we are strangers.
Myself? I just feel good.
For the first time in years I was able to get into the Christmas spirit!
I sang Christmas Songs with my coworkers yesterday, but couldn’t remember the words 😂
I wrapped gifts to Christmas songs. I never ever do.
We are under lockdown protocols and because my sister’s neighbor reports anyone who doesn’t live in the building (even if it core four)
I invited my sister and niece over for dinner.
My mom was still mourning the death of Freddie and seeing Daisy would upset her. She and my dad wanted a quiet night alone before the chaos of Christmas Day.
I never have people over for dinner! I always go over to my sister’s. We exchanged each other’s gifts.
Christmas Day was really pleasant! We usually would spend the night at my parents. My mom would make a big breakfast. Then spend all day making supper.
This year I pleaded for something different! I didn’t want chicken, ham or Turkey! 🤢🤮
I wanted pasta!
My request blew my parents mind! Pasta?! For Christmas dinner?! Are you crazy!
Mel wanted steak.
Dad wanted duck.
I went to my parents early at 2.
My mom was actually calm. Not frazzled from trying to cook a huge meal.
“We’re having duck and spaghetti!” She announced.
My jaw dropped in disbelief. Then I smiled. I was so excited!
We exchanged gifts, played games. Ate. It was such a quiet drama free Christmas that I was home by 6.
Quiet and drama free!
That never happens!
