    I just can't believe I'm looking at the December calendar!

    How does your month look? Mine is busy and fun and stressful....

    Busy: Work and kid-related activities are in high gear

    Stressful: Property taxes are due, I'm having lots of shoulder pain so getting a 2nd opinion re: surgery next week

    Fun: Getting a tree and decorating this weekend, my husband's office has a fancy-schmancy party we're going to and both kids have super cute holiday show performances

    Who is next?

    No Stress! I leave it all in Hubby's good hands. He surprised me. During my Nap, he got down an old tree (white) & set it up on the porch. Decorated w/ Purple Garland, Purple snowflakes & Purple Lights. AWESOME! We have a miniature tree for indoors.

    Sounds like your plate is full. But, I do Hope you & your family have a Great Holiday. Merry Christmas.

    Love Candi

    What a great hubby! Would love to see a pic of that purple tree!

    I'm starting to get into the Christmas spirit a little bit more. Went to a fancy-schmancy cocktail party for my husband's office last night and we drove along Sunset Boulevard. Gigantic mansions were all decked out with lights and decorations and trees - it was like Disneyland! We're going to take the girls for a drive-by this weekend.

    Oh Nancy, I'm so sorry

    I hope the surgery and recovery is as swift and pain-free as possible! (((hugs))) and I wish I could bring you a big cup of hot coco right now with whipped cream. Do people in a tropical paradise drink hot coco I wonder?

    Hi Haylen,

    December looks great for me. Christmas cards went out shortly after the Thanksgiving weekend.

    I am planning a quiet Christmas enjoying my new place. Maybe some of us here might get together for a potluck dinner. Who knows.

    Vegas is simply beautiful this time of year. It seems that THE STRIP'S lights shine even brighter.

    Whatever I decide to do, you know football will be a part of my day.

    The support group will be meeting at the doc's office this year for a group party.

    Candi, Mylene is planning to join us.

    know this is past due,

    My december calendar was a mess starting in the middle of the month.

    Becuase of the ankle surgery, I was ge tting non-stop calls, from b oth the hospital and the CORE institute.(the orthopedic facility I go to back on the mainland). they rescuduled my surgery THREE times in 2 days. IT was scheduled to go on teh 27th, that still happened but they changed the time on me several times.

    The ankle is still in pain still eating pain pills, on crutches, in some kind of wrap job wtih some kind of padding under the coban tightly wrappped on top of it.

    Then threre was christmas Eve. home for the holidays and surgery. I am in the hand bell choir at my church in both places. I read music quite well and can come home and pick them up and jus start wit them.

    I had to play this year in PHX. THe choir director grabbed me at teh last minute becuase the bass bell player bailed. So I had to play.

    Back in HI I am also in the bell choir that they have had for over 10 years, and i play the bass bells in that one as well. The one at my old church has only been around for 4 years.

    that was the middle of dec on.

    December was okay I guess. I didnt do much, was not in the mood. I refused to cook Christmas dinner because I did the whole 9 yards myself for Thanksgiving, and not a shred of help. DS took us out for dinner, so that was nice. DIL refuses/cant cook and threatened to burn the dinner if she had to cook... I could have eaten a PBJ if need be.

    Anyhoo, eating out was fine.
