Christmas Eve — 8 Comments

  1. DB,
    So glad you have some chances to get out and are feeling a little better–your post is encouraging! I haven’t seen a real movie in a long time, but I hope we get to see the Nativity Story. I’m disappointed to learn that they didn’t make Joseph older, like history seems to suggest, but other than that I hear it was done with great care. Merry Christmas!

  2. We don’t go to movies very often, either, mozartmovement. And it was good to do something different.

    They did make the Joseph/Mary couple believable in a Biblical sense, I thought. It’s not so much that they emphasized how old Joseph was, but that they emphasized how young Mary was. It works quite well in the movie. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

  3. Hey Rosemary,

    I want to wish you a happy holiday. Your blog means a lot to folks out there, and reaches a whole new group every day through I honestly believe that the time we take to communicate our lives is having a big effect on people around the world. You are making a difference.

    All the best (however we need to define that) today and every day.

  4. Thank you, Spence, for such kind words! I haven’t been feeling like my blog was very many that it could be helpful to, so I really appreciate your encouragement. I’ve also added your link to my sidebar. I feel honored to be included in yours.

    May you and yours have a wonderful Christmas Day today, as well.

  5. Wishing you a Merry Christmas! My substitute caregiver just stopped by (my regular aide has four days for both holiday weekends) and as I read your words about how your Daddy waits for you to come back to ask you to do stuff, I was cherishing them. Your blog is unique because you are dealing with your own health issues, yet you are also a caregiver. Keep writing things like that, dear friend – because those of us who now depend on others need reminders of how to truly give caregivers time off! It does not mean saving a pile of “things to do”!!! LOL Hope you have a great holiday, hugs,

  6. LOL By all means, Ruth, be sure you don’t leave a long list for your regular caregiver for when she comes back! LOL!

    After teaching school all those years I understand completely what it means to have a vacation that’s almost more trouble than it’s worth. A teacher has to do all the plans for the substitute, even if she’s out because she’s sick. And then when she gets back to school, she has to get her class back in order and on track. Believe me, it was easier to go sick, if possible, and “be my own substitute” with easy work for a day or two, than be out.

    It says something about our lives that we’re blogging today, doesn’t it?

    Bless you!!

  7. Happy Christmas. I hope despite everything you are having a wonderful, wonderful day. I am also praying that in 2007 you will feel less side effects.

    Sorry I haven’t been around, I haven’t even been updating my blog. Going through something or other not quite sure of. Maybe it is the fact I gave up 60 a day since 17 (started at 7) 4 months ago and still crave as much now or maybe it’s the fact I retired a year ago and cannot get another needed job.

    But I have promised myself no more negativity from 1st Jan. I will stop craving, I will make money on the internet, I will get creative and stop all my projects looking like a 6 year old did them 🙂

  8. It’s good to hear from you, Jackie. I had noticed you weren’t blogging much lately, but you don’t seem to be the only one who’s taking time off right now, so I didn’t think anything of it. Sorry you’re having problems kicking the habit, but I guess that’s not surprising.

    You’re sites don’t look like a 6 year old did them!!!! Have you considered Pay per Post? Kilroy from the Gonzo Papers is doing a lot of that lately. You might want to ask him how it’s working for him.

    May 2007 be a good year for both of us!!
