    Last of the Holiday Fun by TicklingCancer

    OK, what was your second favorite gift you received this year? I say second becuase I don't know about you but I'm pretty happy to have made it to another Christmas. Life is a pretty awesome gift!!

    My second favorite was the cordless drill set I got. Can't wait to find something to fix with it!!

      TC, if you are looking for something to fix, I sure hope you don't have pets... Yikes! Since I couldn't go to visit my mom, due to having chemo last week, she sent me an "Edible Arrangements". Lots of fruit put together like a flower bouquet. The fresh fruit was wonderful! And lasted me for 3 snacks and 2 breakfasts.

      There must be something industrious about this time of year.. I just ordered vacuum parts to make repairs. I will use tools soon!!!

      My second favorite gift? Oh that's hard.. I can't judge them, as I love them all. I'm glad to have the gift of a chemo break for the holidays!!

      It's pretty easy to eat fruit from Edible Arrangements. The fruit is so fresh!! I love it. For my anniversary one year, my wife sent me a bouquet of chocolate dipped strawberries. What's funny is on that same day....I sent her the exact same thing!!

      Now don't go around breaking stuff just so you can fix them TC. LOL ;) Just kidding.

      Ok my second favorite was a scrapbook. My 3 best friends and my sister put together a scrapbook of our friendship throughout the years. They spent time writting little notes and letters, decorating it with lots of pictures of our times spent together. It is so beautiful. It brought me to tears on Christmas Eve (since that's when we celebrate Christmas)...tears of happiness. I am so blessed to have these women in my life. My 3 besties are like sisters to me.

      But I HAVE to use my new drill!!!

      I saw a quote today that said "when you are up in life, your friends get to know who you are but when you are down in your life, you get to know who your friends are. That's a neat gift.

      Oh, TC. You are such a GUY! Your family is gonna find holes in the furniture, in the walls, in the floors. You are dangerous! : ) Just try not to drill any body parts, ok...? I think we've all spent enough time in the hospital w/out weird trips to the ER. I can see you trying to explain that one to the ER doc now.

      TC you are behind. I think I have 4 or 5 coordless drills. They come in handy when doing tasks like hnaging door hinges where you have to drill a hole then drive a XXX. I rarely use a hand XXX driver any more except for little screws.

      As for favorite giftsd this year the second favorite has to be the sweater my wife gave me since is didn't get any power tools this year.

      I see that the site censor can't handle "XXX". I will have to remember that in the future.

      Yes, being here for Christmas is the best gift. I have hair which is what I asked from Santa. After that - tickets to see Les Misearbles.
      I got a cordless drill from my Dad two Christmases before he died. I wanted it so badly, and then never had a reason to even charge it. DARN!
      TC, if you don't have a real reason to use it, we could send you lists and you could become a travelling repair man. :)

      I prefer giving gifts rather than receiving them. I take pride in giving that perfect gift. However, this year I got some awesme hand lotion as a stocking stuffer. My hands have been so dry from the chemo, I am always searching for good lotion. Spending the holidays with my friends was special. Since I have no family, this time of year is often hard for me, but I spent it with my besties and we had a great time. Friends are the family you choose. And I chose great ones :-)

      My second best gift--besides BEING HERE--was to spend the day with my hub, 2 sons and their girlfriends and a combined three dogs--with a total weight of 32 lbs. YIP YIP YIP (and TC--stay away from them with those power tools!)

      Our DD gave us an early Chanukah presemt this year. 2 sessions with a professional de-clutterer. What with every thing that's been goning on, DH and I really got behind on organizing and getting rid of old newspapers, ill fitting cloths etc. Having a neat oraganized apartment agin is amazing.

      So apparently I need to go around to various locations and fix things. I'k ok with this.

      Peroll, I'm not sure why they censor XXX. You can XXX a XXX or not XXX a XXX. Either way...it's just a XXX.....know what I mean?

      I recently saw in a CSN forum "wrisXXXch" because "wrist watch" had been written as one wore "wristwatch" - testing to see what happens here! I love when words get banned because they might possibly be used inappropriately.

      My husband is still here fighting and that is definitly the best gift by far. I think my second best gift is a tie between the cooking lesson with Chef Tom Douglas from my youngest son, and the beautiful VS from my husband. I really enjoy the giving part much more than the receiving, but do appreciate that my family knows me so well as to know what I love most, and that is them.
