I'm done! Maybe

Category: Holidays | Posted: Fri Dec 23, 2005 4:43 am

Yesterday, we went to Prescott and did grocery shopping. Of course, we just don't know when to stop so we did a lot of other things too. We had lunch at the Chinese Buffet. That is always good. We left home at 9:30 am and got home at 4:45 pm. Long day.
This morning we got up at 6:30 am and went to Phoenix to have breakfast with our friends. It was an hour and twenty minutes to the diner where we were meeting them. They only had to drive for forty minutes. I was amazed. We arrived only five minutes after them. We sat and talked and drank tea or coffee for awhile after breakfast. They finally had to leave because Al had to play accordian for a Christmas Party in the afternoon. He had to go home and pack all his equipment into the van.
We went and bought fish for Christmas Eve. Then, we went to my sister's house to tell them Merry Christmas. They aren't feeling very Christmasy because her husband is having a heart valve replaced on Jan. 9th. I took her a rice steamer, cooker etc. She wants to try steaming his food to make it softer and easier for him to eat. She was a little surprised because although we had talked about it, I hadn't told her I was buying one for her. Then, she was upset because she hadn't bought me anything. I had to convince her that it wasn't a Christmas present, just something she needed right now and I could get it for her.
They haven't put up a Christmas tree. They don't think they will put one up, but her daughter came and said she and the girls would come over after work and do it for her.
We came home after that. We didn't feel like shopping anymore. We have it done anyway. We really didn't need to do shopping. We just wanted to connect with friends and family before Sunday. Our son Dan will come for Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
I gave eight tins of cookies and still have a few left. I have one more tin that I could give away if I would. I just have to decide if I have enough Christmas spirit. I'm not too happy with the person, but Christmas is a time to be generous so maybe I should do it anyway. Should you give a gift of cookies to someone because it is Christmas and maybe the right thing to do? Should you skip it because it isn't given with Christmas spirit and love? I can't decide if it would make me feel better or worse. Maybe the answer is that it would make them feel good.
