Sunday Stealing

(Link in meme-roll)
Christmas Questions Meme

1. Have you been naughty or nice this year?
I've been nicer this year than I have in many years past. Well, I've been less badly-behaved, trying to keep myself on the straight and narrow. Which means I've gained about 30 lbs. Oh well.
2. What do you want most for Christmas?
Beast home from the hospital and nerve-pain-free.
3. What is your favorite Christmas movie?
I don't really have one. We usually watch Bill Murray's Scrooged at some point, and A Christmas Story. That's about all I can stomach.
4. How many Christmas cards do you normally send out?
Zeeee rowww.
5. Do you still get a stocking?
Yup. Although they are still packed this year, along with everything else including the tree.
6. What is your favorite Christmas song?
"Joy to the World" always reminds me of my dad singing the tenor descant.
7. What is your favorite Christmas tv special?
I've a soft spot in my heart for Rudolph, but I don't watch it because it's irritatingly SLOW.
8. What is your favorite way to wrap gifts?
In a bag with some tissue paper.... :-)
9. What do you look forward to most at Christmas?
Relaxing, thinking about the churchy stuff, doing the traditions, seeing family.
10. What did you do for Christmas this year?
Well, we haven't hit it yet...so...the plan is that we're taking Beast in for surgery Wednesday; he should be coming home Thursday. His attendance at Christmas Eve services this year is unlikely. I may go, with Sparky, to the late service if we get home in time, assuming everything works out. As I was typing this he told me he's not sure he can wrap my stocking-stuffer gifts because of his arm/hand being numb--which isn't unexpected, and I don't really mind of course. It's going to be a weird holiday. Between him on Wednesday, my niece expecting to give birth to twins any second now, and my great-nephew (different niece's baby) going in overnight for tests and maybe surgery, this is becoming The Year of Hospitals for the family.
11. Who do you want to kiss under the mistletoe?
Beast. Not that we have any mistletoe.
12. What kind of Christmas tree do you have?
It's fake, and still in the box.
13. Did you take part in a Secret Santa?
Nope. Thank God--I suck at this! I did set aside a White Elephant for the work party, though, which we ended up not doing, and I missed the party anyway.
14. Did you go to any Christmas parties?
Nope. Well, ok, yes, I did go to our chapter's P.E.O. Auction/Christmas Party. And dropped a ton of money again. For a worthy cause.
15. How early do you wake up on Christmas morning?
Now that we don't have any reason to check on the Santa situation, we just get up whenever. Usually by 8 or so.

I'll add more wishes for Beast to be home, pain free, and all other hospital stuff to be uneventfully problem free because, heck fire (!) that is a lot to juggle in the mind. Big Hugs Mz. Cat!!

I'm surprised they could squeeze Beast in before Christmas--here's to a successful procedure and an uneventful recovery! Maybe 2016 will be looking up!
