Cruisin' with Carrie: The Finale

Carrie of The Slow-Dripped Life has been asking questions for her "Get Away Give- Away". I have participated, except for last week, when I could not get online. As I have said, much to my dismay, blogging and trucking do not mix well. In an 18 wheeler it is different than in a car or even an RV. Trust me, it is very, very different. Most of the time I could not even get online. But, I digress...this is about wonderful Carrie and her generous giveaway. My real reason for doing it is that I love Carrie & her blog. Also Josie of Two Shoes in Texas (whom I adore) is spurring me to do so. (God bless their hearts). 

Let me first say that I had a post for last week's question: "If you had to lose a sense, what would it be?"  I would choose smell, even knowing that it is closely linked to taste. Simply, I would hate to lose sight, hearing, and touch. There are just too many things about those senses that make life worth living to me.

Carrie's final question was a pick and choose. I chose: If you could be locked in somewhere overnight, where would it be and what would you do?  Would you be by yourself or with someone, and if so, who?

This question is particularly relevant to me at this holiday time. I wish I could spend Christmas with my husband, here at home, like we used to. Just like last year, he will be in his truck, alone somewhere. I will be here at home alone, but at least I will have our Girls: Maggie P., Grizelda & Chloe Jo to be with.

Christmas is special to us. We always celebrated very big, all out. We decorated, tree, lights, inside and out. We would go to a holiday movie sometime during advent. We shopped, baked, cooked and always had people over. We went to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, because Jesus is the Reason for the Season. Then we would celebrate at home.

Most definitely, if I could, I would be locked in at Home on Christmas Eve, with my wonderful husband of 31+ years, Bill. There is just no other choice for me. That would be perfect.

  1. If I could have one wish for Christmas, I would wish Bill home with you! I know how very much you miss him and the normal routines of life most of us take so for granted. The bright spot in all of this, is that you have someone you love so deeply, and he loves you that much too. Love is the very best Christmas gift of all! HUGS

  5. Oh man that just breaks my heart. Of all the days of the year, Christmas is when you should be with the one you love most. I'm sorry!
    That is the perfect answer though. To be locked at home with Bill for Christmas.
