Merry Christmas to all my Spark friends. Today, my family is coming over for a traditional Chinese hot pot dinner. I started preparing the soup stock. They will arrive sometime after 1 PM (after they eat lunch).

I will get hubby to go to Pho Tay Ho and get some summer and egg rolls. Hubby will also pick up our lunches.

Yesterday evening, I received a call from my cousin Shandou. She was telling me about my mom. She was telling me that my mom has a short fuse. She is 83 years young. I think she made have dementia. My cousin and my brothers do not have much patience with her. My cousin needs to be right all the time with my mom which makes it very tough for them to get along. Mom gets angry and viola -- BIG fight between them.

Hopefully, it will be a peaceful Christmas dinner tonight.

    Oh my, it sounds like a recipe for some drama between your mother and your cousin. I hope it goes as well as possible.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Sorry to hear about your family issues - that can't be easy to deal with........it may or may *not* be dementia, but simply a case of strong personalities clashing, along with age.......only a good medical workup for your mom can shed true light on the situation.......

Have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season!

I had a very busy day at work yesterday. I left around 5 PM EST. I stopped at Grand Wall supermarket and picked up ginger, scallion, and Chinese soup spoons (8). Then, I went to Harris Teeter and got cat treats and Klondike ice cream bars (for mom -- for tomorrow).

Hubby ordered pizza from Little Caesar and they got it wrong so he had to wait and took longer than anticipated. George stayed over.

Happy Christmas eve to all my Spark friends.

I arrived at the office yesterday and there was present from St. Nick. I didn't open it. I will open it on Christmas day. I needed to complete a project by noon (or sooner) yesterday. I finished it around 9:30 AM. Thank goodness, because it was a busy day.

Last night, I cooked the homemade potstickers (from my cousin) for dinner. Well, it's time to start the drive the Tysons Corner. I better get going.
