Christmas Eve

The day has finally arrived.  And it is a day I won't soon forget.  Everything seemed to go wrong.  We wanted to leave around 3:30 p.m. for the 2 hour drive to my sister's house.  We ended up leaving at 5:30 p.m.  There was construction the way we usually go and so I went the long way that I haven't used in years.  That turned out to be a very long, very winding, very dark road.  I almost made the wrong turn twice, but finally found Route 10  and we made it.

Elaine had lasagna, garlic bread and a salad for dinner.  Everything was very good.  After dinner I went to take my medicine and found I had left all of my medication at home.  I also left some of my clothing, some of the gifts and the cake I baked for dessert for Christmas dinner.  Joe left his watch and some of his other things also.  We called around trying to get a pharmacy to give me an emergency supply of medicine for three days, but because I get it mail order, they couldn't help me.  Some of the medicine I take Joe also takes and he had his supply here, so I am sharing some of them with him, but not all.  I am praying very hard that I don't have any difficulty.  One of the medicines I am missing is my heart medicine.

We went to the 11:00 p.m. service at Elaine's church.  It was very beautiful.  We had gotten here too late to go to the 7:00 p.m. service.  At the end of the service everyone stands in a circle around the sanctuary and is holding a lit candle.  All the lights are turned off and we all sing "Silent Night."  So nice.  I look forward to it every year.

We were supposed to bring our cot with us, but didn't have room for it in the car.  So I am in the single bed in the guest room and Joe is sleeping on the floor.  He is snoring, so I know he will be OK for the night.

It is almost 2:00 a.m. so I must end and get some sleep.  Breakfast, church and then opening gifts tomorrow.  Till then.

    How are you feeling? No meds?!
    Even with the glitch, it sounds like you will have a great time with your family.
