That is very kind of you Ms Blue but Im not sure I could handle it. Im an introvert. Too many peeps all at one time make me twitchy.

I thought about that. Its going to be hard. I cant think of anything that I really need. Or want. Ive reached the stage of my life where Im over stuffed with stuff. OMG Ive become one of those old peeps you cant buy for cause they have everthing.

Holidays for hubby and I are have become mudance since we left NJ and our kids and grands and are here in MN. We try to make the best of it and shed many tears on the phone with family and friend.
My thoughts will be with you.
Things dont have to be that way ya know. Cant you go hme for the Holidays.
Hey guys. I didnt mean to sound all maudelin.
Im sure I will miss Mom but I will also be fine. Im an only child and an introvert. I am used to amusing myself. I can go for days wit a piece of string and a paper clip.
When I say I dont know what to do with myself I dont mean it in a bad way. I just mean I havent decided yet.
