The Holidays

so it's that time of year...i used to look forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas - i loved them both (doh mind it's the WORST season of the year) until MS reared its ugly head and i can't enjoy cooking for thanksgiving or shopping for Christmas!  For some reason, both holidays are a HUGE deal in Tucker.  We always have a larger than life spread on the table for thanksgiving (u'd swear we grew up celebrating it) and a tree with millions of gifts (most of them for us) under it at Christmas.

well MS has spoiled them both for me.  I can't stand and cook the dishes i have responsibility for and shopping online is just no fun for me!  and as usual, i am jealous of all the people out there who have no problems...

this year,  i have to find someone's else's house to storm for food (no fault of the MS) and we are hopeful that Christmas will find us in Vegas (if that's not something to look forward to, I don't know what is) :-)


  1. Ah, I dread the year cooking will be no fun for me. I'm sendng warm thoughts your way!

  2. I still love Christmas! My daughter and I share the cooking now, I use a bar height stool to do the preparations sitting down. I can't shop till I drop anymore, but with the help of a wheelchair, I can get out to get a few special gifts, before the crowds begin.

    Christmas in Vegas...now that would be interesting!
