Did the Grinch Steal Christmas or Me?

Published December 17, 2018 by Nan Mykel

I’ve spent lot of money on color copying at FedEx plus about 10 hours including standing in the rain waiting for the bus to take me to another bus stop with a sheltered chair to wait, to end up so far with 5 home made Christmas cards–16 pages of photos and sneaked cartoons–mailed them today and just remembered I forgot to staple them together and when the envelope is opened from this–shall I say the word–octogenarian–the loose pages will mysteriously flutter to the floor.  I give up, the balance of the loose sheets are headed for the trash cemetery, aka recycling.

I’m caught this crucial week before Christmas without my credit card. I got in a tiff with McAfee who wanted me to renew my security without giving me an option of one or two years–just “renew,” and I may not be alive in 2 years.  They proceeded and the bank thought California California might have been a mistake and I couldn’t remember and they ordered me a new charge card Dec. 4, which hasn’t arrived yet.  Grump grump. I know, I should be thankful to be alive (and you’d better believe I am), but my spreading joy is impaired.  So I turn to you, my beleaguered few, who have holiday emergencies of their own.

We could be in Yemen this minute.

  • I experienced a small Christmas emergency today. Printed Christmas letter, bought stamps, made address labels (difficulty printing them, son helped figure it out), had cards w/ envelopes ready. After stuffing and sealing about 20 cards, I re-read my letter (for umpteenth time) and found 2 mistakes, not just typos either!!

    I am now reprinting the (edited) letter and found extra envelopes from last year to replace ones I re-opened. Christmas will come, whether or NOT we’re ready 🙂 Do they celebrate Christmas in Yemen?
