It's Christmas week and I'm so excited…

Monday was a great day, the rain poured down all day. Karen came in and got me up and her and Lisa were going to clean out the other half of the garage by Lisa had to take her car in and Karen had some stuff to do at home so I tried to take Robby out for a cruise but it was raining too hard so we came back and watched TV for a while. David and Melissa took my mom to a doctors appointment so we got to visit for a while when they came back, they are so cute. Lisa came by and we cleaned it and got rid of a lot of stuff in the garage, it is starting to look really good. Rosa came in and put me to bed and we ordered Chinese to be delivered. My favorite is garlic eggplant, potstickers, salt and pepper ribs and war wonton soup but to be honest I love everything. It wasn't long after that I fell asleep.

Tuesday was a really great day. Lisa came over and got me up and for once and didn't have a doctors appointment to go to so we had all day to organize and purge the garage. I want to get everything organized and I'm in the mood to get rid of stuff so it's very exciting. Omar came by to help and we really got a lot done. I took Robby for a short cruise while Omar and Lisa were taking things off-the-shelf and organizing what they could and the rest they put in a pile in the middle of the garage for me to go through, we really got rid of a lot of stuff and I am loving it. Rosa came in and put me to bed and I wanted to watch a movie with my mom, David and Melissa so I decided to wait and do personal care on Wednesday morning. We watched the holiday and everybody that David enjoyed it, she played games on his laptop.

Wednesday was a pretty good day. Karen came in and most of the day we spent doing personal care, I really thought about staying in bed but today and Friday were the only date that wasn't going to rain so I got up and asked Rosa to come in a little bit later so I can take Robby for a nice long cruise. Rosa came in and I got to take a nice long hot bath. Stanley, Janet and Robert got here for the weekend.

Thursday was another great day. Karen came in and got me up and then Lisa texted me to see if I wanted to do some more organized, of course I do. She took me over to pet smart so we can get something for Robby for Christmas and we were going to go to cost plus to get some more jolly nog but it was so crowded in there we decided we didn't need any that bad so we just came on home. We finished organizing the garage, all but one shelf, and it looks fantastic… It's so exciting. Rosa came in and we did some personal care and I was so glad to get a nice long hot bath. Corrine and her boyfriend showed up for the weekend. We had ham, these killer potatoes with green onions and cheese and salad for dinner.

Friday was a really great day. Cindy came in and got me up and Janet made some awesome cinnamon rolls and Corrine made some amazing scrambled eggs. We got together in the living room and opened presents, what a great Christmas! I took Robby for a cruise over to the wharf and ran into David and Melissa sitting on the bench enjoying the beautiful view. Robby and I cruised down to the end of the wharf and back, down to the end of the boardwalk and back and I tilted back in the sun for a while and just enjoyed the view and the last day of Christmas music. We cruised back down to the end of the wharf again and then back home, what a beautiful day! Stanley rotisserie the turkey on the Farberware and Janet roosted the prime rib in the oven, unfortunately the turkey wasn't done in time but the prime rib was amazing! Melissa made some awesome rosemary rolls and we also had crab and brie macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy and asparagus… I ate way too much. Theresa came in and put me to bed and then my mom, Janet, Robert and I played cribbage…  Robert was my partner and I was hot. After a while Stanley took Robert's place and we didn't do so well but we had fun. Robert took off to pick up his girlfriend McKenzie at the San Francisco airport. They are so cute!

Saturday was another really great day. I got to say hello to Mackenzie before the busy day started. The kids went downtown to look around, I didn't go because it was raining but shortly after that the sun came out so I took Robby for a cruise to the end of the wharf, to the end of the boardwalk and then back down to the end of the wharf again before coming home. Stanley and Janet took all of us to the Shadowbrook Restaurant fore in really awesome dinner. I've been here for eight years and have always wanted to go because I hear really great things about it and it was nice to finally go. The evening was excellent! We got our own little banquet room with a fireplace and a fish tank. The service was excellent and the food was amazing, I had scallops and lobster mashed potatoes… Everyone had a really great time. We came back home and Theresa was here to put me to bed. Robert, my mom, Janet and I played a couple of hands of cribbage and then David took Robert's place. My neck and shoulders were really sore so I took a couple of PMs and went right to sleep.

Saturday was a pretty relaxing day. Cindy came in and I decided to not get up. My brother made breakfast and then his family packed up to go back home, what a really nice visit. I watched a lot of TV and well basically that's it… Theresa came in and  we did some personal care and I got to take a nice long hot bath, by the time I got back into bed I was ready to go to sleep. It was an awesome week with my family!
