Christmas Countdown 2017

Christmas Countdown 2017

It is 12:01am on the East Coast and that initiates our new Countdown for Christmas in 2017.

One essential: each post must contain the word "Christmas". Last year we set a new record for Christmas posts so I challenge us to break an even higher record in 2017.

Let the Christmas fun begin............

Today we spent the day skiing at Smuggler's Notch with friends and playing games before ringing in the new year. I took a spectacular spill on the last run of the day, but the beer and champagne have helped me forget that. Keep Christmas in your heart this year! I plan on staying better connected with friends and keeping my focus where it belongs... on my family, friends, and my own happiness and well being...an ongoing Christmas present to myself. Thank you 2016 for putting things in perspective for me!!

Christmas 2017 posts goal: 5000.

2016 closed with 4773 Christmas posts and I think we can exceed that achievement. No pressure -- just fun. :smilecc:

Happy New Year Christmas friends! I hate to start the new year with a prayer request, but I have a possible blot clot in my leg an am trying to make it until I can see the regular dr. I have no desire to go to ER on New Year's Day when they are short staffed and probably very busy. I chatted with my cousin who is a nurse practitioner last night and we are staying home today and taking it easy. I am "ordered" by my cousin to see the dr Before I go to work and resume normal activity. Peronally, I am hoping it is just "reverse" sciatica (going from the calf to the hip, rather than the other way as usual) but understand the need to rule out blood clots in a hypertensive diabetic who is under alot of job stress and has recently flown long haul. Pray for Quick drs appointment, Quick resolution, and Quick attention if it is indeed something serious.

Greetings Christmas friends, I saw the dr this morning and have an ultrasound at 13. If there is something there, I will go to the ER. Othewise, I return to work tomorrow. Of course I pray for nothing, but if it is something I pray for Quick treatment. This is a bad week to be out of work.

We enjoyed our first church service of 2017 yesterday. I even remembered to take in all the stuff that I've bought for Operation Christmas Child at the after Christmas sales. We are blessed to have a room at our church that's dedicated to OCC. :angelmerry:

Since its raining today I thought I'd use my time indoors to start taking down my Christmas decorations. It's bittersweet. While it's sad it be packing away this years stuff I'm already planning and looking forward to next Christmas. :thumbs:

The Christmas tree that I griped and complained about last year looked so good after I strung it with new lights that I think I'll use it again next year. :treewiggle:
