On My Naughty List: Santa

I am fed up with that jolly fat man!

In the past few years I’ve written him letters, asking nicely for very little.  He knows I’ve been good (as I always am), and yet nothing from my list shows up under the tree. It used to, along with one or two wonderful surprises. Not anymore. He left me a 6-pack of underwear.

My stocking had two spatulas in it.  I wish I was kidding.  Is he trying to tell me something, or are spatulas the “new coal”?  Did I offend him somehow?  What went wrong?

Bottom line – I miss being spoiled and I HATE being taken for granted.  I feel like whining, hollering cuss words and stomping my foot. I managed to control my self in front of my granddaughters, but my eyes were swimming in tears for a bit.  I didn’t realize how much I wanted this new “toy”, until I didn’t get it. My disappointment lingers, but I adjusted to reality rather quickly in spite of that 30-minute tantrum watch. I still had a day of  fun with my family.

That’s what the Christmas Spirit is really about anyway. Love and Family.  The “toys” are only perks. 😉

If You’ve Got A Grandma, You don’t need Santa!

This Christmas will be WAY happier for me than last years Gray Christmas.

How do I know? Because I will be with my girls this year. When I say “my girls” I’m talking about my daughter and her two daughters, in case somehow you missed their mention in previous posts. (welcome newcomer 😉 )

I have spent hours wrapping gifts and I’m only 1/2 done with all the things I got for my girls. Hubby may pass out when the Visa bill comes, but I’ll worry about that next year. If he complains I will have to remind him (again) that it’s his toys that cost the most around here. But that’s a whole different story…

Those who know hubby and I have 2 boys might be thinking, “Hey! What about the boys?”. Don’t worry. They are not forgotten. We usually celebrate with them after the actual holiday so we can have them to ourselves (long story). We like to stay up late and play cards, which is an option because the guys have not seen fit to provide any grandchildren for me to spoil. Just sayin’.

Because of the visions of sugar plums and all that dancing through my head this week I doubt there will be room for any inspirational writing to post, so I will pass along my sincere wishes for everyone now. Since I’m in the neighborhood anyway.

Here’s wishing snow, family, toys, and whatever brings you  Christmas happiness!!
