Merry Christmas

27 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have to run around today and get stocking stuffers that I forgot about AND some of my family's presents having arrived in the mail yet so I might have to go and get some gift certificates to hold them over. This holiday season is one I can't wait to see go actually only because my house might be foreclosed on soon so the waiting and not knowing where we're going to live is brutal. Each day I'm on pins and needles while my fate is in the hands of negotiators and mediators. Oh well, whatever will be will be and all that.

oh nooo.. can you maybe refinance it? is there something I can do to help you keep your house? If ANYTHING happens, my home is always open for you. I know it's far away but it is here if u need it.

Merry Christmas everybody. I'm sad today coz I'm stuck in Tuckin' Fexas and my family is all in MO. They are all getting together and this is my first Christmas in 29 years that I won't be with them. This just feels horrible and to me...it's not Christmas if I don't have the love of my family around me. Hubby and kiddo are awesome but they're not mom and dad, grams and gramps, etc...

I hope you all have a safe and wonderful holiday!

"merry christmas to all who may dwell here"

"merry christmas if even just one"

"may the joy of the season surround you"

"merry christmas, with love"

Doodle, I am sad to hear what you are going through. I am hoping for the best. These are tough times.

A most pleasant day here. I have been sick, and I am feeling a little better now. Hubby got me the best purse! (He had some assistance picking out with my daughters cuz I am freaking picky). I got him sick so he is back in bed napping. I feel bad about that.

Family party in a few hours. I should clean but not sure it matters really.

Happy Holidays to all.
