I knew that this year,the holiday which I grew up loving was going to be a hard one for me. Maybe that’s why I let them schedule the cataract surgery for when I did.
I found a Christmas card today from Jim, Zush and Kasia and broke out in tears for 15 minutes. Fortunately it was just me and Kasia in the house. Maybe this is why I am so anxious to get it all done, because in the back of my head, I am just trying to remove the holiday malaise and get back to life as we know it.
Jim went to a holiday party tonight which we normally would have gone to together, but I simply just don’t want to take a chance.I mean, antibiotics, steroids, and a group of 25 people who have been exposed to what germs, you don’t know. Yes, in the back of my head, it also gave me a chance not to go out and put on a fake smile and wish folks Merry Christmas.
Dear God, please just get me safely through Tuesday and I promise I’ll put a smile back on my face.
So I am up at three thirty in the morning and pretty much awake.How much sleep did I have? Uh, none.
Steroids and watching the time I take it: when WILL I ever learn.
So far I caught a Johnny Carson rerun on Antenna TV for an hour and maybe that forced me up, I just don’t know. He had Bob Hope and Dean Martin and Charles Nelson Reilly on and I was laughing hysterically. If you actually read these names and say, “who?”…go google them.
After that I had Stephen Colbert on with Tom Hanks, again, who is promoting he newest film, “The Post.” It occurs during two weeks when the Pentagon Papers were about to be published in the early 70’s. Funny how it should have a limited release starting on my birthday, but down here in “Undisclosed” we seldom get the first release of anything.
Moving on, I watched Stanley Tucci, Meryl Streep, the late Nora Ephron on you tube from a few years ago from when the movie ” Julie and Julia” first was out.It was bittersweet to see the three of them together.
Now I am writing this post with hopes of crashing and burning a little later and can catch up with life a little later on today.
Kasia has got the right idea.
We’ve got an inch of snow ⛄️ out front and with a hopefully waning bronchitis front, we are all settling in for a cozy night in.
Here’s hoping you are safe if you go out, but hopefully you’ll be warm and safe like us.
After all, there are 10 days until Christmas 🎄
