@Faebert I remember those days of recovery from surgery and not being able to do what I thought I could do. It sucks, but it's temporary. You've got this and will be back in no time. I hope your little one wakes up feeling better.
Work is like a ghost town today and I am out of vacation so I am here. My of my what a boring day I have ahead of me.
Party time at my house tonight. V is having 6 girls over for their annual Christmas sleep over. I like that they want to do it at my house. I always wanted to have that home where everyone felt welcomed and loved, and it keeps me in touch with my daughter and let me get to know her friends. Nothing fancy, not really doing any major cleaning. They all know there is toothpaste in my sink and the laundry is piled up. Looks like a taco bar for dinner which can cover the vegetarians and the omnivores, then some sugar cookie decorating. After that they are on their own downstairs. Dogs are even getting a sleepover at my SIL so as to make the festivities a little easier.
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve the traditional day I spent with my family. My family is down to just my mother and she is bitter and has cancelled Christmas. I bought her a gas stove for the basement and Tim installed it last week, but I can't call it a Christmas gift. We will drop off a few homemade goodies tomorrow and I've told her no gifts are needed unless she wants to make us something. This is the first year, that I feel no guilt over her choice to be miserable. It is the first year since my mamaw (20+ years ago) died that there has been joy in Christmas for me. Like in many other families, when the matriarch of the family passes the family was shattered into factions and the times of joyful celebrating became a memory. The life I have made for myself and the love that fills my family would make her proud and very happy.
If I'm not on again until after Christmas, I wish you all a blessed time with family and friends, or a peaceful time spent with yourself. Holidays can be rough so take care of you for me. You are all part of my extended family. Love you!
