A Very Merry Christmas

It’s hard to believe, but it is once again Christmas…

It’s equally hard to believe that this is the 11th Christmas with out Nana there to round out our family. I miss her dearly. What I wouldn’t give for just one more Nana hug.

For Papa and I, we don’t exchange gifts any more. We each have all we need and frankly, if we want something, we just go and buy it for our selves. So, for our technical gift, we got the siding on the house. Every year our gift together has been something from the house, either from the lovely large HD tv with surround sound system to the Hot Tub to the Tankless hot water heater.

For the rest of the family I’ve asked for donations in my name to their favorite Charity. Now most of my family doesn’t want to do that, so I keep the ever running “wish list” on Amazon.com of stuff that I like and would love to use.

I also donated to my favorite charities Star of Hope Missions Houston, The 100 Club (to support families of fallen police officers) & my personal favorite Northwest Michigan Hospice (who helped us when Nana was passing away and were invaluable!).

I also bought myself a bit of cheer, the new Droid Pro. Holy Canoley I’m in love with this phone. I initially got it so that I could get email while at my Gramma’s in Florida. But this phone, it freakin’ does EVERYTHING. I’m totally in love. I’ve got email, twitter, Facebook to start me off. Then, I’ve got the app so that I can check in on my flight tomorrow & check in. Don’t have to print paper, I can just show my cell phone. Yippy Skippy! 🙂

Re-reading this, my post is a little melancholy… I don’t feel that way. There is sadness for missing  Nana, but there is much happiness. I have Papa and my friends. I have a great job and keep a lot of positivity in my life. I work very hard to keep my life basic and peaceful.

Have a wonderful Christmas! I hope you and yours are safe and happy!
