to my sweet blog readers. I love you all and I apologize for being MIA lately. This year, Christmas hasn't been what I was hoping for....
-This morning, Alex woke us not with eagerly wanting to open presents but telling us he is sick and had been "getting sick" all morning. Sigh.
-Yesterday, I had lots of Christmas presents still to buy so I braved the outside world only to see when I got home that someone had hit my car on the driver's side door. I now have a dent and a scratch, but no note from the driver who hit me. :(
-On Tuesday, Ted and I came back from a nice lunch to find ALL OF MY CHRISTMAS CARDS THAT I SENT RETURNED ON MY FRONT PORCH (which was WET from the rain that day). Ready to cry, I found the note that said that there was not enough postage. Sigh. I already went to the post office where they assured me that two stamps were enough. So I went back, stood in line for an hour for the lady to tell me that it was enough and to send them again. I told her she was crazy to think that I was going to resend them....so she postmarked them and said she would talk to someone and assured me they would be okay. On Wednesday, seven of them came back. Luckily, they were people I would see so no worries. But if you didn't receive a card from me. PLEASE know that I tried! It has been such an ordeal to send Christmas cards! lol
-I have been fighting a sinus infection/cold for a week. I just got over it to give it to my husband, who is now upstairs coughing. :(
To be honest, with so much going on it hasn't felt like Christmas. But I keep reminding myself that He is the reason for the season and it is not about the presents or the parties, but Jesus. It is the one thing that I am focusing on today that is making me smile. :)
So from my family to yours, MERRY CHRISTMAS! I pray that your Christmas is going smoothly and you are enjoying the day.
