It's December 23 already???  Where did the year go???  I've done no baking this year.  You see, I'm a Cookie Monster.  No really.  I can pass up a cake or a pie, but  a cookie - well, that's a whole 'nother story.  I love cookies!!!  Hard or soft, sugar or ginger, cream filled or sugar sprinkled -- I've just never met a cookie I didn't like.  Not a good thing for a diabetic.  And my sugar has been bouncing around a little, so no cookies for me!!

Oh, you say, surely you've wrapped all your gifts since you haven't done any baking.  The answer there is a big NO.  I'm starting to wrap gifts today.  I don't believe in waiting til the last minute.  Oh, you say, it's because you've been sewing so much.  Again, the answer is a big NO.  So what have you been doing then, you ask.  I'm embarrassed to say that I've done very little other that playing games on Facebook.  Just wasting time and accomplishing not a thing.  Daughter Mary says I'm keeping my mind sharp.  She only says that since she's been doing basically the same thing.  So, she will lie and I will swear to it.

I do have my shopping done- thanks to the internet.  And all the gifts have arrived.  Don't I get some points for that??  Next year will be better, I promise.  Next year I will be a good girl and get back into the Christmas spirit.  But for now, I'm feeling like the old guy who sits on the water tower in the movie "Christmas Comes to Willow Creek".  I just don't feel a lot of Christmas spirit, and am waiting for some special sign that Christmas spirit is alive and well.  No, I'm not feeling "Bah Humbug", I don't know why I'm just not feeling.  Please Lord, give me back my Christmas excitement.  I miss it.  But a very Merry Christmas to you all.

At least you have presents, I only have one and it is for the boys. Everybody else can just wait. No, like you I'm not bah humbug but my spirit is in TX. For the first time in 28 yrs Hubbykins and I will be apart for Christmas.

Mary didn't lie, that's just her story and both of you are sticking to it. ;)

Merry Christmas my friend! I know you will enjoy with your wonderful family.
