Christmas Eve

Ho Ho Santa

I was having a lovely Christmas Eve until 30 minutes ago.  I’ve been listening to Christmas music, watching Christmas programs, doing a bit of knitting, and taking delivery of the Mazda Miata convertible my sil got my daughter for Christmas.  Enjoying the day and feeling the spirit of Christmas.  Until I tried to dig out the driveway so I could go see Ed.  The more I shoveled, the deeper the snow got.  When I got to the street and realized I would never be able to get my car through the snow sitting on the public thoroughfare, I gave up.  I called the nh to see how Ed is doing, asked the nurse to tell him I love him, and came back to my solitary Christmas Eve.  Somehow I’m not feeling the good vibes as much as I was an hour ago.  To top it all off sometimes strenuous exercise makes me very nauseated.  You guessed it – snow shoveling is strenuous exercise and my tummy is letting me know I shouldn’t have done that.  Happy freaking Christmas!  As soon as I get over wanting to throw up and my heart stops pounding I’m sure I’ll feel happier about things.  I can’t even comfort myself with Christmas goodies – remember the upset tummy?  But I’ll read a good book, find something funny to put on the tv, have a good laugh, and feel much better soon.  I hope my friends are having a wonderful Christmas Eve.  Tonight I will light a fire and read the account in Luke of Christ’s birth and remember that Christmas means more than the inability to visit my honey.  I’ve survived much worse, and I’ll survive this, too.  We have missed a lot of special times together because of the weather.  Ed was a cross-country driver for most of our lives together.  This time it’s me who can’t get to him rather than the other way ’round.  😀

    I’m sorry the weather is not cooperating. Have a smile and I hope tomorrow is a better day.

  2. You poor thing! I’m so sorry you’re a bit trapped and feeling queasy. I hope all will calm, and you can get to Ed soon 😦

    Stay warm and cozy in the meantime…and hoping you have a merry Christmas.

    I wish you all the best for Christmas, and hope you can get to see him real soon!
    Meanwhile, I have tagged you with this Christmas Hoopla, and it’s fun doing, I think, it made me remember things I had forgotten for a long time!
    Would you please do one too? It’s on my blog, and so are the rules!
    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my Belgian blog too!

  4. Eve – I’m sorry the snowfall kept you at home alone on Christmas Eve and am glad you had us to share with (even though I didn’t find your post until this morning). Making lemonade from lemons is always the best policy in my book, and it seems that’s what you did. I hope the snow plow cleared the roads so you could spend time with your hubby Christmas Day.
    Hugs and blessings,
