Merry Christmas and I hope to all my followers and friends that yours is a million times better than mine!  My son and grand daughter left on the 22nd, and no word from them today.  My middle son is in California and no word from him today.  My husband, youngest son and I all have miserable colds, so there is a non-harmony of coughs through out the house.  I suppose it is good we did not plan to get together with anyone, as we are not good company.

So maybe my redo of the Twice the Night Before Christmas should be for the day of…..

T’was the morning  of Christmas and all through the house,

Every person was coughing; wife, child and spouse. 

The stockings, once hung by the chimney weren’t there

As we celebrated Christmas early for our dear little Claire.

The adults were all snuggled in front of TV’s

With one for Michael & Maxx, but none left for me.

No celebrating or cooking this year

As mom did not feel really of good cheer.

When out in the yard the only clatter

Was the dog barking at neighbors, so it didn’t really matter.

Chinese takeout is dinner, never done it before

No taste buds with cold buds, no need to eat more.

Would go to a movie, but coughing is loud

So stay home and write the Sad Day of Christmas away from the crowd.

Here is to better Christmases in the future!
