As for Christmas I put up my trees the day after Thanksgiving. Now that Moms gone I dont have anyone to buy for so I guess Ill buy for me now. Im really not sure what Im going to do this year.
I'm sorry about your mom. I am sure this will be a sad Christmas for you. You need to buy yourself something that you really want not too long after Thanksgiving and wrap it up and put it under the tree but you cannot open until Christmas day, that way you will have the anticipation of getting a good gift.

CeceliaRose-this season will be difficult and reflective for you. Our extended family Christmas' sort of fell apart after my wonderful Dad passed 9 yrs. ago. Turned out he was the glue that held us all together.

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.

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.

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.
