The Christmas Story 2007

Most bizarre Christmas ever - and that’s going some!

Lil man was at his dad’s. This ended up being very good!

As previously reported, my sweetie was ill on Thursday and Friday. I was ill on Saturday and Sunday. We ventured out on Monday to pick up the last few things necessary for dinner.

Julie was supposed to be off Friday and Saturday, work Sunday and Monday, and then be off Tuesday and Wednesday. She ended up working 8 on Sunday, 16 on Monday, 16 on Tuesday and I don’t yet know what she’s doing today.

I had not planned on cooking Christmas dinner, just for Shorty and me. Not being pathetic - we had planned to spend the day going to Mass and then working on the house (the skirting is still not on!).

We decided that since Julie had to work so many hours over the holiday and since her lil man wasn’t home, the least that I could do was to, as a Christmas gift, make her the “softy salad” that is part of her Christmas tradition. It is my ex-mother-in-law’s recipe - not my favorite.

The salad led to the ham which led to the potatoes which led to the pineapple stuffing which led to the pumpkin pie which led to the raspberry pie…you get the idea.

I had a relapse Monday evening.

This led to me, lying in bed, trying to explain to my sweetie how to pull recipes out of the computer. I love my husband AND he is not the most adept at anything but the most basic of computer crap. He finally found the file and then

The power went out.

Our house is 100% electric.

So, 2 hours later, the power came back on. I was lying in bed, trying to explain to my sweetie that mixing butter and sugar together is CALLED creaming them and there is no cream involved and no, it is not supposed to be the consistency of cream and…

I got up and we cooked dinner together. Shorty then took dinner to Julie and came home. I went back to bed.

As long as I don’t move and don’t put anything in my stomach, I’m fine.

You know how they repeat "The Christmas Story" on TBS every year as a marathon? I don't think you want this one repeated. I had kidney stones a few years ago on Christmas and was in the emergency room. That I hope will not ever be repeated! :D Here's to you getting well immediately.
