aww...so true Shane....so many things take on new meaning these days : )
The lyrics, "...Tidings of Comfort and Joy..." take on a whole new heartfelt meaning.
I hope Santa dont have Chiari or he will have fun going up and down all those chimneys lol.
Do all your shopping online :)
..You can't help but to wonder if these are the last Holidays you will spend with your family...You wonder if this "thing" is gona eventually deteriorate you. ..But then you hear the optimism in your spirit and hold on to your faith..and pray that God pulls you through another year =-)
You think of great ideas for homemade gifts or decorations and think, "Is it really worth the pain and exhaustion I'll have when I'm done?"
You remember Christmas' past and wonder how in the world you ever had the energy to do all the things you used to do.
It takes you weeks to do the decorating that used to only take a few hours.
u have to map out ur schedule much further in advance in order to be able to get it all done....that is 10 times the "normal" for a reg chiari month....lol..
So true Niki...if it wasn't for kids...that makes everyday worth the efforts and pain : )
you spend to long writing your cards out and wrapping your presents and feel really poorly after with huge cog fog and pain in your back and legs, then dont sleep for days because of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But all worth it when you see your childrens faces open their gifts.
You wear sunglasses shopping in bright stores but dont even care that people give you funny looks! I LOVE Christmas shopping and refuse to give up all my shopping days! Bright store lights sometimes make me dizzy.. but wearing my shades help! Haha.. i get funny looks.. but i just look at them funny back! :)
You cant sleep due to pain bcuz you over did things.. again :) not complaining though I love this season :)
Hope you all have the best holiday!
Internet shopping is the way to go since making it through the store to purchase what you want can be quite challenging at times.
