Well, the day is almost over. I'm so glad we stayed alone this year, I am happy yet sad. Hoped I wouldn't be disappointed in most of my family, yet not surprised by the outcome. I think a cruise is in order next year, just me and my best friend DH!!!

Merry Christmas Snapppy.

Families just are what they are; especially this time of year.

I must be insane. They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? From now on my mental well being will be my priority, I started this year and it felt pretty good!

How are you doing, PIO?

Exhausted and in a food coma.

Too much food and preparation! But my dysfunctional family and I behaved this year. No elephants in the room to avoid. So all in all, it was a good christmas.

Snapp, even though my day was relatively drama free, I was thinking going away for Christmas next year might be a good thing.

PIO - glad you had a good day. .

Hope all my other Ignorami friends had a great day!

Pakey - Hope your day was peaceful and restorative. PS - being at WDW had to help, yes?

Seems like a drama-free Christmas was the theme for this year, so far.

I know i'm a day late but I wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas, a Happy Boxing day and a Magical New Year

I'm so excited I just got off the phone from Hong Kong Disneyland. We booked 3 nights for next year December 23, 24, 25 and checkout on the 26th

I'm heading back to your trip report and getting out my note pad.


Have a relaxing evening

Nice to see you. How cool that you've booked HKDL. But I thought you were heading there this year???

....I can't believe that I'm even typing this bu-u-u-u-u-u-ut......




























....sooooo, my DSis and her family came to my house on Christmas Eve, my DBro and his wife, along with their twin DS and DD, and of course, my brother, who was in the hospital for 60 days, accompanied by his DD. They travelled from down the shore in her Jeep. A good time was had by all, and it was wonderful to get the family together. My brother was leaving soon, so he offered my niece a ride to my [sick] brother's wife's relatives house nearby, while the plan was to leave the Jeep behind, so that my brother could drive home the next day [since he'd been hospitalized for such a lengthy stay, I felt safer knowing that he would be driving home during the day, as opposed to later in the evening, in the dark].

After some visiting by friends and other [extended] family memberson Christmas Day, my brother headed back down the shore around 3:30. I reminded him to call me when he reached home so that I would know that he had safely arrived, but I never got that call. Two hours later, I frantically called his cell, with no answer, so I decided to call his daughter [they weren't at home, but were at a friends' home, 15-20 min away]. My niece said that she'd try to contact him and call me back. Well, she did, around 10 minutes later, and had also called another friend to stop by their house to see if her car was in the driveway, but of course, it wasn't. I tried several times, to no avail, when my niece called be back, hysterically crying; they'd called the State Troopers - he'd been cut off in the center lane on the Parkway and, to avoid hitting the jerk, he stepped on the brake and swerved, flipping over 4 times! Other cars that had seen it, pulled over and called 911, so he was rushed to the hospital. Ironically, it was the one that he'd just spent 60 days at, but it's also a trauma center. I told her that I'd meet her there, and off my DH and I dashed. However, moments before we were getting onto the NJTurnpike, my brother called me. He was at X-Ray and was also getting a CAT-SCAN, so he didn't call me, but assured me that he wasn't too bad (THANK GOODNESS FOR SEATBELTS!), but was in some pain and that he thought that maybe he had a broken rib of two. Well, he assured us that the hospital was keeping him overnight for observation, so hat we didn't have to go all the way down the shore, and my niece and her mom had just arrived at the emergency room. I really felt bad for my niece for, not only being scared out of her wits, but she paid for that car all by herself, with her hard-earned money [they had to cut off the roof to extract my brother]. The happy ending is that he is alive, but really, how much more bad luck can he take? I sure hope that 2013 is a wonderful year for him....

OMG Kimmar?! That's horrible! You can't make this stuff up. How can one person have so much bad luck? Yet have such good luck that he isn't seriously injured? I'm so sorry for your entire family. You are all so strong and supportive. Sending you all hugs, prayers, good vibes, and any other positive energy out there for the rest of this year and 2013!

Wow Kimm, that is terrible, but thank goodness he was not seriously hurt. Hoping that all the bad luck stays behind in 2012 and nothing but good things happen to you and your family in 2013!

Kimmar,what a terrible way to end the holiday but I'm very glad to hear that your unlucky brother wasn't hurt any worse than he was.

Snap, the cruise idea sounds most excellent.

It's been interesting here. We have had weather in the low 30s, followed by swim day and today it poured on us. So far I've bought a sweatshirt and scarf, a tee shirt and today a rain poncho. I'm having a great time. I know it's my last time coming for some time so I'm trying to enjoy every second.

I hope everyone is still enjoying their holiday season.

Kimmar - I hope that 2012 ends as a safe and sedate fizzer for you and your family. Bring on 2013! May it be a hospital free year for EVERYONE!
