What a Wonderful Christmas!

I hope everyone's Christmas was as wonderful as ours ended up being. I say "ended up being", because you see on Christmas Eve I had a major meltdown here. To the point I was saying that I hated Christmas and all that came with it. Which is not really true, but just how I felt that day. You see, I am a planner. I plan everything! I've never been one for surprises or changes. I am a stickler for routine, over and over again. I can't help myself. So when something changes, or things don't go as I had them planned in my head, it completely upsets my "little apple cart". I hate my apples being tossed out and bruised! So I spent Christmas Eve highly upset, crying and to make matters worse, drinking. I am not a drinker anymore! I haven't had anything other than the occasional bottle of beer about 2 times this year and Yes, I do have Bailey's in my coffee each day, but hell that is about 4 TBLS, tops. So for me to hit the hard stuff..............well let's just say my Eve grew worse and worse. And so did Trucker's. It is not a Christmas Eve I wish to remember, and thanks to the consumption of alcohol, I might not!

Christmas Day however was nice, really nice. No hangover here.............yeah right! But I didn't let it damper my spirit for the day. We had a lovely dinner at my parents house with my sister in attendance as well. My brother could not make it as he chose to stay home and start his own families new tradition. They have a new baby as of Dec. 8th. Little Emma Sage came into our world then. What a Christmas blessing she is too. I haven't been able to see her yet, but will be doing so soon.

I learned a lesson this holiday.............................It's what you make it and how you take it! I hope my apple cart and apples are well next year.

In closing I'll leave you a couple pictures of Miss Emma. Isn't she just about as pretty as a new pup? LOL.

Beautiful baby! And, yes, alcohol in mass quantities and a stressful holiday do not make good partners! I am glad it ended up nicely! Now we have a whole new year to look forward to! While we manage our expectations from now on;)

I had the opposite of you--okay Christmas and it has gone to hell since. and like you, I made a bad call on drinking my way out of it.

Come on 2010!

Glad Christmas turned out ok. Beautiful neice there. I didn't over-indulge this year...probably because I've been sick and antibiotics and booze don't mix too well. Have a Happy New Year.
