Holidays are a comin'

Cards aren’t sent, presents aren’t wrapped and I have no idea who I bought what. The holiday will come and go without much hassle, none the less. My daughter sees commercials on tv for every toy, doll and trinket and WANTS, WANTS, WANTS! We just cremated her Ken doll due to the fact that his legs broke off, so I know that is a possibility from Santa or Aunt Missy. I’m losing the whole meaning of the holiday with the hustle and bustle of commercialism and materialism. I think we should adopt a family, purchase and wrap presents for them and help sling hash at the soup kitchen on Christmas Day. Nobody needs anything, but everybody wants SOMETHING! I did ask Santy Clause for a new stainless steel fridge to spruce up my kitchen and make me feel more “culinary” when preparing meals for my family each evening. Sleek appliances could do that for a person. My babysitter just purchased one and God did it make her kitchen look 100 times better! It added a bounce to her step for at least a week too! I was jealous and still get a shiver of it when I glance longingly at her stainless Frigidaire. SIGH – oh well – some day……
