Seems the older we get, the more stressful holidays become. Does anyone else feel that way?????

It's a toss up between BAH F'ING HUMBUG!! LEAVE ME ALONE and something I have to do for the family. It's just a another, colder time of year.

I like Christmas, the season, what it represents, and I even like snow. I just wish I had more money so I could give more to my sister's kids. I have no kids, so I try to spoil hers when I can. It's going to be tough this year though.

Heading out to the Christmas show at my sisters church tonight. My 3 1/2 year old nephew is singing a solo. I'm sure it will be so lo you can't hear it, but oh well.

Great parties and food - just about every night. Makes it a little hard to think at work though

Just another day to me.
When my daughter was little it was cool, but now I could let it pass.

My problem is that it was between Thanksgiving and Christmas, 1968, when my parents decided to split up.
I know it was a long time ago, but I guess it really hurt more than I realized. It just ruined the holidays for me.
I always feel bad for people/faimilies that have a tragic event on a holiday. Every time that holiday rolls around they'll always be associated with their loss.

I am feeling pretty good right now, just go back from delivering a car load of Christmas presents and $300.00
to a local charity. All collected at my Christmas party this Saturday. I have 5 Christmas trees and a zillion Christmas decorations through out the house. We have about 6 Christmas parties to go to, Christmas in NY with my family, and one spoiled niece. Guess what camp I'm in.

Merry Christmas from the Blain's

I like Christmas. This year is a little stressfull as with all the house problems and missed work due to he house problems we are strapped for cash. This is Pam and My first Christmas together so we are trying to make it special with out going over board. Debt is a bad thing. We are going to spoil her Nephew with a computer from TopDJ (thanks bud) and the rest is just spending time with the family that we never get to do as we are just to damn bussy.

Hey Iggy, I split from my wife during the same time, this will be a strange Xmas by myself but thats OK, I will be able to snowmobile this year and take the week between off, couldn't do that due to a step child that was jerked around like a puppy. All is good until I think of the past. i need some time to go by FAST so I don't have a past. I love to put lights up and a tree so I still get into the mood. I say let it SNOW!!
