Glad you made it Pinz! Seasons Greetings to you and Mrs. Pinz and your whole family. That is really wonderful that you are close to your family and make the long trek to reunite. I have one sister and we were estranged for about ten years while she was cruelly angry to my father. She had issues. After he died we made amends and we are close now. She and her husband have many animals--they have a ranch in Nevada--no kids. We are close now and she likes to have nieces. My mother is 87 and failing in sight and hearing which she is brave about but thoughts of her future are stressful for me, selfish I know but I speak honestly. Tom's mother is 95 and lives in a nursing home with dementia. He will spend Christmas lunch with her, I will fetch my mother over to my house for a Christmas meal. The mothers and their futures thing is very stressful but the girls are happy and the new puppy is wonderful.

Seasons Greetings to one and all this Christmas!

Here in the colonies, driving distances are longer than in those cute little European contries.  

Pinz, I spent two summers driving Madeleine to visit colleges and will have to start again this summer with Elisabeth… Already thinking about the miles….

Amazing about your dad, Pinz. Took the girls to my mother's for presents and Christmas Eve at 1 pm. Too early for a drink. She pulled her way upstairs to show me a blouse of hers she wants me to wear tomorrow. (I am turning 57 and she infantilizes me in a lot of ways.) She doesn't remember it is the blouse she showed me a few years ago that she wants to be buried in. Glad to be home now at 6:30 pm with my second glass of rose. Will have to have her over for ham at 2 pm tomorrow. Should I wear the blouse? I was wearing my best blouse at her house this afternoon when I leaned over her candles to blow them out and wax spluttered onto my face and blouse, leaving stains on the blouse.

Went to 5 pm Mass with Tom and the girls. Got pulled over on the mile home! Rear tail light out, no problem.

Madeleine is 19 now and has been to drinks parties at college. So Tom is letting her have rum in her eggnog….

Yeah, I figure I'll wear the blouse. But if the sleeves are too long…will I still wear it?

The girls were excited about the presents under the tree, curiously, mostly things they bought for each other this year, things from the dollar store, candy, little stuff they just loved to wrap. E and T bought bought me books about China and M gave me a book I had asked for. E got her contact lenses on Monday, her big present. M wanted a $90 rugby jacket which we ordered for her ( I gritted my teeth) so when she gets that this spring, that will be her present. Julia got an expensive electronic toy something called a 3-DS.

Side question: Since M joined rugby in the fall, I have been wondering if I have the authority to forbid her from playing such a dangerous sport (it is all girls). Should I forbid her? I thought about calling her pediatrician and asking him to tell me. But we are letting her. Sure enough, she broke a pinky mid-season.

Ham is in the oven, wild piles of bills and papers are shoved onto the window sill. Half the chairs are piles of books and papers. I think we have enough chairs to sit on.

Are you driving all the way back now Pinz! Happy New Year to you and the family! Stay ahead of the snow! We are supposed to get a storm on Thurs, the day the girls are supposed to go back to school. So we'll see. Getting up in the dark at 5;45 to get them ready and take the puppy out. She got into the M and Ms on Sat pm and we were on the ASPCA poison control line on Sunday morning while the dog spent the day high as a kite on caffeine from the chocolate but she hadn't consumed enough to be in danger. This is her second encounter with chocolate. She has also had an expensive ear infection. This is one expensive puppy.

And how are those lovely couch cats?

Izzat Crawfordsville, Indiana? If so, beware: An alleged monster was seen here in the late 19th century that became known as the Crawfordsville monster. It was described to be made of a cloud with red glowing eyes. It is now believed to have been a flock of birds huddled together in confusion due to the town's newly installed electric street lights. The story was featured in The History Channel's television series Monster Quest, in an episode featuring unidentified flying creatures. If not, beware.
