really, really, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY...

TLC and Little Leighton (LL) came for a visit late yesterday afternoon. They’ll be here until Sunday after lunch. We’ll be hosting our Annual Christmas Get-Together with Sunny, Nelly and H3 tomorrow. Yes. We’re slightly late on this. We often are! But we stay determined to celebrate with our dear, dear, SPECIAL friends—even if Christmas has come and gone—and come hell or high water. It is simply a MUST DO because of the quality of life experience it always gives us. We laugh and laugh. And laugh. 

LL seems to get funnier and funnier each time My Sweet Hubby (MSH) and I are blessed to be with her. She can be quite the Drama Princess. When she gets mad, sad, or upset—about the Trauma Du Jour—she often tells me, with great emotion:

Grammy, I really, really, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY need a (fill-in the blank…could be cookie, juice box, chip, goldfish, pretzel, book, movie, tv show, toy, etc. etc. etc.)!

ELC: LL, Mama said you can’t have…do…see…eat…drink that. I’m sooo sorry, Biscuit!

Sometimes we both cry.

This morning she told me she really, really, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY needed to put some red lipstick on. Two visits ago, she asked me if I had some “red” lipstick for her. I said I didn’t have any that was gluten-free, but I’d get some before her next stay. She threw a teeny-tiny fit. Then, during her last visit, I couldn’t beg her to try the gluten-free gloss I’d found at Sprouts. For $14. Sheesh. Today, she was ready to give it a shot! It looked GORGEOUS. Trust me. She’s hooked.

As I head to my bedroom for a quick afternoon snooze (everyone else is already asleep at this casa!), I send out BIG hugs and smooches to each of you...I really, really, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY do!

ta-ta for now, Silly Friends
