No blues here because my kids will be home for Christmas. First time in 4 years both able to come home.

I have a bit of the blues because we dont have as much money as we usually do this year and had to cut back, which really upsets me. But otherwise the lights and music make me feel alot better.

I hear ya Babzz....however, I don't plan on doing anything about it! I'd like to be like NoCasa and forgo it completely, but that would be too Scroogey! No decorating for me. Just house lights outside and I'll do my address sign post at the end of the driveway.

Over the past several years Christmas has lost it's joy for me. I try not to be bummed about it tho, because really, I don't believe in God, which is supposed to be the reason for the season right? So all I am doing, is missing out on an overly commercialized, sanitized money grab! Don't pressure yourself. Just do what makes you and your son feel good about the season.

yep i am just not into christmas this year. If it wasn't for the kids then i just won't do anything. I was excited and looking forward to it but I just don't really care anymore. I usually go all out decorating and all I did was the tree. I am all for a grinch dinner.

i have an idea. if you are feeling blue about it why not do some volunteer work or nice things for others and see if that helps snap you out of it? i know it sounds corny but it really does work. we are volunteering as a family on christmas eve and its really nice and makes us feel good.

everywoman
11-26-2009, 05:14 PM
I know for me Kitca, that it's not so much the blues, as it is indifference. It's just become so fricken-fracken commercialized I could care less to participate in it.

I love that you and your family are helping others out. Truly a wonderful sentiment put to action.

NoCasa....you offering up your hot-tub?? Bathing suits optional?? LOL!!

Right then. Grinch Christmas it is!

Leave the tree in the ground
And make not a sound
The turkey I abhor
It's roast beast forever more

(Ok Suess I'm not but you get the idea!)

My place could work, neighbours won't mind - I don't have any. Just bring sleeping bags cause after a few glasses of whatever you sure won't be driving home!

Anapeg
11-26-2009, 10:20 PM
Pick what you want for meat and let me know. Oh, and how many we are feeding. Louis will supply a beautiful roast or a Baron of beef if you like or perhaps a prime rib?

NewCasa
11-26-2009, 10:26 PM
I have no idea how many or even where. In all seriousness if we want to make plans I'm in. If a number of people would like it at my place that'd be great, but bear in mind I'm in Goulais. I'd love it if people would come there and I'll make a nice dinner, but if you have more than a couple of beer I own your keys! lol

Failing that, anyone who's serious about this should speak up and then maybe we'll all just get together for coffee (or beer) and work out the details in person. Sound good?

Actually, all joking aside, I wouldn't mind doing this. If I do, the only dates I'm available to host are Friday Dec. 18, or Saturday Dec. 19. I need to check with my husband first tho, to see if he's available, because I'd like him to be here!

Are people willing to attend? Is this something you guys would like to come to? I know that there have been many members at my home for various reasons, including 2 Soonet coffee meets, and a few times including beverages stronger than coffee! So, y'all know I'm a nice person and great host!

Ok in talking to NoCasa, we've decided to throw this next Wednesday the 2nd out for all of us to meet up. How does 6pm at the Sports Centre on Wellington West sound for everyone?

Anapeg
11-28-2009, 04:27 AM
This will be our customary BERT ( Beer Emergency Response Team ) meeting, or a proper Grinch Christmas celebration? I don't expect we will be allowed to transport roast beast over their thresh hold and walk away unscathed so any grub would have to come from the proprietor.

Anapeg this will be a BERT/Grinch planning team meeting. Everyone who would like to eventually descend on the roast beast should consider attending. Just so we're clear, what we jokingly call the 'Sports Centre' is the Sports Bar near Henrietta on Wellington West - just after the lights halfway up the street.

I don't know if anyone actually knows if it's got a name....

But then, who cares? ;)

Yes it is the entrance I have a problem with!!! After that I am fine!!! I guess it all started back in my dating days I was supposed to meet this guy on a blind date my friend set up for me. Well we decided to meet and I walk in and their ws a guy sitting their alone and i walk up and say Hi! and he said hi, and i said are you mike he said yes, so i started talking to him about stuff like oh so how do you know brody? (the person who set us up) and he gave me a really weird look and I was like oh... Your not here for a blind date are you? He laughed so hard. Turns out that the guy sitting their who's name was mike all alone wasn't the mike I was supposed to meet even thought he was wearing the black jacket that the mike i was supposed to meet said he would wear and he had dark hair and everything. I felt like the biggest idiot and said I was sorry a mmillion times, got up left the coffee shop and waited outside for another 10 min called my friend asked where my date was and well i made an A$$ out of myself and got stood up all in the same day!!! So I have issues with going in and meeting people I never met before. I have this phobia of it now!!! So if we go you must wear a big pink sign!!!
