Friday’s Funnies – Christmas Edition

Trying to get back on track with my blog hasn’t been very easy, but I’m progressing. It’s a busy time of the year, even for me. Being disabled makes everything difficult so when the holidays come I proceed with caution. I know I can’t do much in one day so things have to be planned out in advance. I’ll do a little each day from now until Christmas and then I’ve instructed Dad to just push me over a nearby cliff. Hopefully, he’ll say a few nice words about me as I plunge to the bottom of the mountain.

All kidding aside, I’m trying to stay in the holiday spirit, which is difficult for me. If you’ve been following my blog then you know the reasons. I’m trying to stay positive and to see the humor and joy in the little things. I’m hoping to spend at least a lunch with my oldest grandson and for a nice Christmas Eve with my son and his little family. I have put up a small 2 ft. tabletop tree, adorned with tiny purple lights. The table is draped with a purple tablecloth…can you tell my favorite color is purple? Several gifts are already wrapped and ready for one (or more) of the cats to discover the fun of shredding paper.

So, in the spirit of Christmas and finding humor in the holidays, here’s this week’s Friday’s Funnies – Christmas Edition!

Enjoy, my blogging friends!

Oh Little Christmas Tree, Will Jack Pee on Thee?

The last time I wrote in my blog, I was wrapped up in a blanket of depression. Thanksgiving was calm, just Dad and I, but I was depressed that my kids and grandkids weren’t with us just like every holiday for the last 8 years. We were able to have lunch out the Saturday following Thanksgiving with my son, his wife, and my newest grandbaby, though. That helped my mood and I have tried very hard ever since to have a little more holiday cheer.

I really despise Christmas. I was never crazy about the concept but always made memories with my kids when they were growing up. Following old family traditions and creating a few of my own, we always had a good time. I’m not a religious person, nor will I ever be, but my kids were taught that the reason we celebrate Christmas is Jesus. Funny though, December 25th isn’t even the correct birthdate, but I digress.

Christmas has become so commercialized that it just sucks the life out of me. People have become so greedy and they’ve raised their kids to be greedy little monsters, too. Not all, but I’m sure you know the ones. This year I have done all of my shopping online. Why go out and deal with the greed, crowds, and noise? I’m keeping everything small and simple this year. Just a few gifts, some homemade, some store bought will be placed around a 2 ft. tree (ordered online) on my kitchen table draped with a purple tablecloth. The tree will have a few purple lights to make it more festive but the large white tree and all of my ornaments and decor will stay in storage. I just don’t have the energy for that much hoopla. Especially since the house won’t be full of kids and grandkids, maybe just my son and his little family, or maybe…just cats….which leaves me with the thought, will Jack pee on my little tree? He’s the only cat that goes outside and he’s been neutered, but I have seen him mark his territory outside on trees, my car, the side of the house, etc. I’ll let you know how my little tree fares. As for Christmas eats… I will try my damnedest to do my traditional Christmas Eve pizza, pizza balls, and popcorn cake, all homemade. Christmas Day dinner will include ham and not sure what else yet, but lots of goodies for snacking. (Isn’t that the best part anyway?) Keep your fingers crossed that my pain level stays…well, level with no spikes for at least that week of Christmas.

I’m taking a break (for the most part) from social media and blogging. I want to change the look of my blog, so I hope to do a little work on it during the next few weeks. I will leave you now with a few Christmas funnies (since I’ve missed the last 2 weeks of Friday’s Funnies) and who knows, I may just have another installment of these before Christmas! Enjoy!

Have a great week, everyone!

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

I’ve been away from the computer for most of the last week. It was a surprise to receive a few emails from other bloggers wondering if I was ok! Yes, I’m ok, and thank you for worrying about me. I’m just emotionally drained. Aside from my own aches and pains, doctor visits, and other “shtuff” I have just been overwhelmed with thoughts of sadness for those who have suffered terrible losses from the fires in California, some are friends of mine. The death toll is now a state-wide 66, with 631 missing persons. 52,000 people have been displaced. In Butte County alone, 142,000 acres have been burned, with just under 12,000 structures totally destroyed by the blaze. I read that some people were burned alive in their cars while trying to escape. Injured pets have been found and have been in shelters waiting to be reunited with their families. It has been weighing on me so heavily this week because there’s nothing I can do. Nothing except pray…and that I keep doing. 

So, in trying to lift myself back up instead of letting the sadness totally drag me under, I’ll try my damnedest to get back on track. That starts with this week’s Friday’s Funnies. Thanks for missing me (even if you didn’t, lol) and thanks for reading my blog. I do appreciate it. 

Enjoy!

Poor Dave…
They just had no idea, did they?
I love the 3 Stooges!
I just want to go up to them and pull their pants up!
Yummy!
Or a film about killer tomatoes!
Don’t be like Bob.
I play this game nearly every morning.
Who finds this stuff?
Best animal photo bomb ever!
Oopsie!
Evil child, lol.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I will do my best to blog more regularly, and I’ll keep praying for everyone affected by the California fires.

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Friday seems to sneak up on me every single week! And now that the holidays are approaching, time will go even faster. How will I ever keep up? I’ll try. That’s about all I can do. I hope your week has been good to you! Enjoy this week’s Friday’s Funnies!

Now, if I can just remember to set my clocks back 1 hour on Sunday there may be hope for me after all. I forget everything all the time so we’ll see! Have a wonderful weekend, my friends. Don’t forget to laugh!

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Another week has passed us by… They say time flies when you’re having fun. I call bullshit. I was NOT having fun this last week and time flies whether you’re having fun or not. That’s how I got so damn old. Haha!

So, onward and upward. Here’s this week’s funnies. I hope you enjoy them!
