Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Victorian Lady, Poem

Christmas wasn't EXACTLY what I had expected or hoped for.  DD came down with the stomach flu on Christmas Eve.  I got it on Christmas Day (sheer agony!).  DH followed us by getting it the day after Christmas.  Probably the worst Christmas I ever had :(  We had already made arrangements for my mom to spend Christmas at my sister's house because of expected bad weather -we didn't want to take the chance of not being able to get to her place.

But because I was prepared, we had plenty of food and drink in the house.  But it was by sheer luck that we had enough toilet paper & pedialyte on hand.  So for next year, I think I will be sure to have an Emergency Illness Plan as well.  How miserable to be sick on Christmas and have to leave home in search of medicines & soothing goodies!

I am hoping that your Christmas wasn't NEARLY as icky as mine!  We're going to try and make New Year's Eve a little more special than usual to make up for last week.  Mind you, usually we do NOTHING for New Year's Eve so it won't take much.  I purchased flowers for the table yesterday so it looks festive.  We have sparkling drinks (both grown-up & kiddie versions) and once again, plenty of food.

A huge Thank You to my Flying Partners for making this such a relaxing Holiday Season!

Typical Ramblings, Atypical Nonsense


  1. I am so sorry your family was sick on Christmas. Our Christmas was different too due to the weather. Not a good time for a snow storm.

    Hope you had a great New Years.

  2. So sorry, C, that Christmas didn't turn out as planned...but I just KNOW you have other highlights from 2009. Hee hee, I've 'tagged' you over at my blog :)
