May Your Christmas.....

May your Christmas start off better than mine!

managed to roll over in bed and pull something in my leg.  Thought it was a charlie horse, but instead, I've pulled something.  Then my dogs stampeded me, limping and griping into the kitchen to give them biscuits and let them out..  They come back in, and one decides to spit up. 

So here I am, sitting with an achy leg swathed in tall socks for compression and legwarmers for extra warmth, surrounded by sleeping dogs, listening to alternative rock while hubby is at church (he can't stand this type of music, but it fits my mood) wondering if my tummy's well enough to handle some Ibuprofen (it's not), and wondering if there are any drugstores near here open.

I am grateful, though, that I have nobody coming, so that if this happened today, it's not going to be a family disaster.  Yay!  And although it's quite cold, it's sunny.  Yay!  And that my house is nice and warm.  Yay!  And I have good coffee to drink!  Yay!  And a fast internet connection!  Yay!  And friends that put up with me (I think!)  Yay!

For those who like that sort of thing, here's a Christmas poem

like a candle in the darkness,
like hope in despair,
like touch to the lonely,
like water to a thirst,
like a starry night
filled with angels singing.

like the mysterious light
filling a tomb
to shatter finally
the hold of the darkness.

The gift of light,
first among all the gifts,
a love song of God,
a love story,
a baby's cry in the night
announcing Emmanuel,
God with us.

Beautiful Poem.
I feel for you today. I have no voice and I canceled Christmas breakfast. What a time to get sick. Keep your leg up and relax with a cup of tea or coffee.

Oh! Not fun at all! You drink lots of stuff for your throat, and if you can get some licorice altoids or panda candy, it'll help....

May Your Xmas
Awww, Sweetie! I'm so sorry about your leg. I hope that it gets better real soon. Try to stay off of it as much as possible. At least you won't have a houseful of guests to watch over today. I'm stuck with going over to Mom's place.

Not only is it Christmas, it's her birthday. Can you imagine what the end of the day's gonna be like? With her drinking & all of the kids, & grandkids and the kids partners & everything?

I am SOOOO going to bring the Motrin with me. I've got a funny feeling that I'm gonna need it by suppertime.

Beautiful poem, by the way. Cheers me up & gives me the encouragement that I need to get my arse in gear to head down to Mom's. Serge says 'Joyeux Noel', too.

In spite of your injury, try having a Merry Christmas just the same, Sweetie. Luv Ya.

Working on it! Had a nice long chat with my youngest...wish he didn't live so far away...sigh.

So sorry you have to spend your Xmas this way! I have had bad leg cramps that have left me crippled for the day. I hope what you pulled is only a temporary problem - hey, maybe if it isn't you can get out of jury duty? I don't know, just rambling.

That was a beautiful poem, by the way. And I am glad you are trying to stay upbeat in such a lousy situation.

I try...

My youngest stepson (not the one giving me fits! He did that when he was a teen) called and we had a nice long talk...he's doing so well, but I miss him like the dickens. That was worth a lot.

Our weather's beautiful and cold today, so we went for a ride for a bit, just to get some sunlight. Outside of my leg achies, it's been a lovely, quiet day. Lots to be thankful for.
