Christmas Story # 18 is posted. Here is the link:
I have to start with a prayer request. My "furbaby" Flurry isn't feeling good. She started vomiting last night. She was the one we had the scare with several months back. We normally give her a baby aspirin and a benedryl but she can't keep anything down. So with out the apirin she is having arthritus pain. I called the vet and they said to limit her water and no food. How I limit water with 7 cats and 2 dogs I am not sure how. She keeps drinking and then vomiting.
If she is better tomorrow they said to give her food then. If she isn't better on Monday I am going to have her checked. She is our first pet after we got married and got our home. I couldn't feel any closer to her had I given birth to her.
DH worked some overtime last night. He got in about 5:30 this morning. That was the scary part for me, not having him here while she was sick. DH called last night and said I have good news and bad news. Which did I want first. I said bad. He said he was suppose to work tonight 3rd shift but they cancelled it. Good news I get my husband today.
Linda (nurse) was here today which helped. This way my DH didn't have to get me up and settled. She has been doing a lot of Christmas shopping. I don't miss the shopping of Christmas at all. But, I was hoping to be able to get him some socks, undershorts and a belt for Christmas but I think that will have to wait. As long as I have him here and my "babies" I have all I need or what really. Anything else is just gravy some say.
Found this post amusing. Hope you enjoy it too.
*** Santa Claus is a woman because: ***
The vast majorities of men don't even think about selecting gifts until Christmas Eve and only go for a last-minute shopping spree.
For a he-Santa, there would be no reindeer because they would all be dead, gutted and strapped on to the rear bumper of the sleigh.
Even if the male Santa did have reindeer, he would inevitably get lost up there in the snow and clouds and then refuse to stop and ask for directions.
For a Santa man, there would be unavoidable delays in the chimney, where the Bob Vila-like Santa would stop to inspect and repaint bricks in the flue.
He would also need to check for carbon monoxide fumes in every gas fireplace, and get under every Christmas tree that is crooked to straighten it to a perfectly upright 90-degree angle.
Men can't pack a bag.
Men would rather be dead than caught wearing red velvet.
Men would feel their masculinity is threatened...having to be seen with all those elves.
Men don't answer their mail.
Men would refuse to allow their physique to be described even in jest as anything remotely resembling a "bowlful of jelly."
Men aren't interested in stockings unless somebody's wearing them.
Having to do the 'Ho Ho Ho' thing would seriously inhibit their ability to pick up women.
Finally, being responsible for Christmas would require a commitment.
*** Santa is certainly a Man! ***
Santa Claus is undoubtedly a man because:
Santa doesn't deliver his presents on The Friday after Thanksgiving when the malls are open for 20 hours. Christmas Eve deliveries prove Mr. Claus to be a man.
Santa's reindeer is so drunk that his nose glows as his navigator. A woman would never let out those cute deer to work on Christmas Eve that too in cold and perhaps would dress them in sweaters and booties.
Only a male Santa can ignore 'fashion' and wear the same suit for 500 years.
Santa has never been known to answer a letter.
Women aren't interested in stockings unless someone better looking than them is wearing them.
As many presents as Santa delivers he has no trouble with babes.
Only men have the ability to stay up for 24 hours straight in the cold with a bunch of mangy deer and going up and down soot-infested chimneys.
A woman would never even think of going down a chimney and risk staining that red velvet.
Commitment requires that Christmas be on the same day each year. A female Santa would delay Christmas until she can touch-up her makeup and do her hair after leaving each house.
Have a Santabulous Saturday!
Please send up prayers for Flurry.
