Christmas, Part 1

Here on LI. We were lucky- we timed our trip right between two blizzards. It's interesting to hang out with people who think a "white Christmas" would be romantic. You wonder about people like that.

Today is the foray into the City. We are meeting up with the spouse's extended family for an annual lunch hosted by a generous uncle. I was going to dress up for this but then I remembered the joys of walking across town in December, so I will adjust accordingly.

OK, let's be honest here: Does anyone out there ever think "extended family gathering today" followed by "oh goody"?

If so please contact DIH and tell her your secret. Or, as usual, she will settle for a few of the pills you're popping.

Effexor XR 150mg. gets me through most of life's crap. That and Wild Turkey or Margarita's when I'm not pregnant. Since I am currently "with child", I will be white-knuckle-ing this Christmas! Pray for me! LOL!

You drink a lot and then laugh to yourself about all the stories your spouse has told you about these crazy relatives. You realize you are normal and they are nuts and then you thank God that your spouse is as "normal" as he is considering the gene pool he came from
