    2020 has been such a strange year.  Working from home since March and for the foreseeable future, which while I wish was under different circumstances, has been great for me.  Given me a lot more opportunity to dress in the clothes I love since I’m only out to my wife.  But the past 3 months or so – in and out of the hospital, cancer diagnosis looming over me, and one very bright spot – getting married to my understanding and completely accepting wife in November!  I just still can’t even really compute that today is Christmas Eve.  My wife and I were talking about it last night and we realized part of it is not going out to stores, etc and being constantly inundated with Christmas music etc.  No traveling to visit out of state relatives.  Normally I take lots of time off at the end of the year to just recharge, but I’ve had to use up and save what little PTO I have left for ongoing treatment, so here I am working on Christmas Eve (Shhh! Don’t tell my boss I’m surfing CDH!!!!)

    We’re going to try to really set the mood tonight, watch some Christmas movies (still trying to get my wife on board with Die Hard being a Christmas movie lol — nobody’s perfect!)  Cold front moving in bringing some rain so we’re going to use the fireplace in our rental house for the first time!

    Well I guess I’m just rambling at this point, but I can’t be the only one who feels like the holidays are super weird this year.

    Love to all my sisters and I hope everyone has the happiest of holidays!

      A very Merry Christmas, Erica.
      It is a strange christmas, for sure, But as a couple others have said, it’s one christmas, versus your life possibly?
      My wife is extremely immuno compromised, so if it came in the house, it would be fatal, no ifs ands or buts, so no “sneaking”, here, the kids and grandkids have already been told, it’s just not worth that 1%?, 5%? chance this year.

      Erica

      Virtually the whole world has been turned upside down courtesy of China…..and it’s going to take a while yet……but you really do have to believe it will end and we get back to something like normal, otherwise, what do we have???

      everybody has had some kind of setback, whether it’s this Crap Covid virus, or something else, but you have had a bit more than your fair share….. keep fighting the good fight honey…..best wishes, grace xx

      It’s definitely a weird Christmas. But then it’s been a really weird year. I’ve also learned that working from Home has advantages 😉 and learned that watching or reading news is depressing. I’ve learned strange new things about myself this year, told my wife, and we’re still together. That’s a win. Now, no visiting for Christmas. Just had a zoom meeting with most of my wife’s family. Most of mine is gone, so…

      Yeah. Hard to think of it as Christmas this year. Even with the trees up, decorated, and presents under them.

      Hi Erica, You’ll definitely never forget 2020.  You’ve had quite the year, haven’t You?  Congratulations on your marriage. Very lucky to have a completely accepting spouse.  And good luck with your cancer diagnosis.  Die Hard?  I know quite a few people think of Die Hard as a Christmas movie BUT I think with a lovely new wife I might try to watch something a bit more Christmassy and romantic.  Both Oprah’s channel and Hallmark have got Christmas chick flicks playing daily.  Yes, I know some of them are pretty cheesy but hey, it might be worth sitting through one of them for your wife.  Yes, Christmas is a bit weird this year.  We have to try to sneak over to our daughter’s house to visit them tomorrow.  Our government issued a lockdown order – no visiting anyone for Christmas, $1000 fine.  A  few exceptions and my wife is trying to figure out how to do it.  She figures if our marriage status is “separated” for Christmas day, we qualify as an exception (so that means taking separate vehicles). Very weird.  Stay healthy, stay safe, All the very best to You and Yours.  Hugs, Krista.

        I think I’ll have an easier time getting her to watch Die Hard than anything on the Hallmark channel lol.  I would probably be more apt to watch something on there than she would.  😂

        Fortunately we have a variety of Christmas movies we both love to choose from!

      Well there’s the chance to see everyone on Christmas day – Christmas by Zoom, lol!

      I’d rather sacrifice one Christmas in order to enjoy future Christmases with all my friends and relatives than risk everything for the sake of tradition.

      Love Laura

      I hope things turn out well for you Erica, I truly do with all my heart. Tonight you must do everything in your power to find as much of that Christmas spirit as you can, snuggling by the fire with your fiancé and a glass of wine is a terrific start. Merry Xmas sweetheart!
