Best Christmas Eve ever! And I'm not even manic. Just felt relaxed and enjoyed it all. Here's me and my three granddaughters:

I'm really happy with this year's Christmas! Both days were relaxed without the discomfort of weird family relationships, stayed with the kitties, watched Christmas movies and played Christmas songs lol It was great. We decided to do this every year.

And I'm happy you guys had good Christmases :D
Now... Happy New year everyone ahah

AG that's a good way to spend Christmas.. Wish I could do that...

Mine is over except gifts to each other. I survived... This one today I was anxious the whole time. Knee kept bouncing.. But what you going to do.. I Power through it...
Snowflakes gently floating from the sky just dusting the ground. Then it picks up bigger fatter flakes cascading from space at a faster rate. From a dusting to a trace. Then the deluge comes. Oh what joy. Watching everything slow to a crawl, then a stop. Step outside and even with things moving it is quiet. It is a giant muffler the earth is wearing. Causing everything to be muted.To be calm.

It is quiet.. music playing.. sitting in our respective seats. Tracy replying to her return texts from her merry Christmas texts.. Me getting on here periodically..

Hope your day was good know it is close to the time for you to hang it up.

We have sales all year round here :lol: Seriously, I get emails from certain stores and the lowest they go is 30% off. :lol:
We also have Black Friday, but it's not as insane as in the US.
