Seeing a discussion on bragging Christmas newsletters, this is what my newsletter would look like....
Greeting friends and relatives,
As you all know my Mom passed almost a year ago at 98, oh how she wishes she could have made it to 105. That way she could have continued to live in that big house with all the stairs for many more years with Dad. Well, Dad passed couple months ago at 95, he was tired of cleaning leaves out of the roof gutters, and trying to replace light bulbs in cathedral ceiling lights. At his age he wasn't doing well with ladders or paint brushes.
I am still in my crash and burn medical condition after 7 years of helping my parents. When I get home from work, I refuse to leave the house until the next morning for work. I enjoy my job but noticed this year my Boss' personality is that of Donald Trump, but without the Tweeting. Great!!
I still have my three cats, the Vet sends them their own postcard reminding them of their "Senior Wellness Exam". I get similar postcards from my doctor, dentist, and specialists as I am 3 years behind on my appointments.
My parents house sold "as is"... I finally found where the water was coming into the basement and got that fixed. Oh well, I could have advertised the house as having a "self cleaning basement".
Sig other now has a job at a cemetery, he makes sure he leaves before dark. And on Friday he hit a deer with his Jeep. He's now duct taping flashlights onto the front of the vehicle to use at night.
Enjoy the holiday :)
