Christmas, It's Over

Thank-God for small favors!

I would have the greatest Christmas's if I didn't have to go relatives houses. The "older" adults in family have gotten cynical and rude as they get older.

The most popular question I heard yesterday "so you got "laid-off" AGAIN?". It was pretty easy to guess the meaning behind that statement.

The second most popular question I heard yesterday was "you know you should look for a new job right away and not wait" ... duh, I started looking the same day. I also can guess the meaning behind that statement too.

I got this from my FIL "getting "laid-off" so often employers are going to think you are not a good employee" ... not hard to guess the meaning behind that statement either.

Ya, my family just "loves" me .... I'm sure you can feel the love coming from those statements.

And to top everything off every place we had to visit yesterday seemed to boycott junk food. The closet thing I had to junk food was chips & dip. Nobody had any desserts either .... sucked, just sucked.

I had French Silk Pie for breakfast this morning just to even things out from yesterdays junk food boycott.

And gifts, I am getting the feeling that my family hates me. The puppies got better and more gifts then I did.

They got some really nice clothes and a bunch of new toys ... What did I get? Click to find out one of the wonderful gifts I got ...

Ya, this shirt is never seeing the light of day on me. I mean I am crazy about my puppies, but not that crazy.

It's a little blurry, but it reads (above the picture) "Proud Parents of Italian Greyhounds" with a picture of my puppies on it.

I'm sorry to hear that the holidays were not filled with the love that they should have been for you.

But the year is almost over and we'll raise a glass, toast the new one and enjoy the bigger and better that's yet to come.

Hope someone up there realizes what a gem you are to have and snatches you into their corporate fold for a very, very long time and at a ridiculous salary to boot!

Hey, if you're going to dress your puppies up, I think it's only fair that you should have to walk around wearing them, too :-)

Well, hell, that whole thing sucks. Idiots. Who would say something so awful?

BTW, there is no difference between french silk pie and doughnuts for breakfast. ;-) Sounds perfectly normal to me!
