But, on Christmas Eve, we ate on my Grandmother's fancy china and sat at her big dining room table and ate a weird jello salad with a gigantic glob of mayonnaise..(to this day, the thought of that mayo and jello combo makes me want to vomit!)...once dinner was over we would into the living room where I would distribute the wrapped packages and the unwrapping would begin...
But...today is Christmas Eve and I will make the best of it...I'll be making the 4 hour drive home. It's supposed to snow there and so we'll have a white Christmas...Dad and I will go see Mom later today and also tomorrow...and she, more than likely, will not really be cognizant that it's really Christmas. It makes me sad but we'll do the best we can to bring some cheer to Mom and ourselves.
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas...one in which many warm and happy memories are made.
All the best,
