So Christmas is over, the holiday shopping, wrapping , cooking , travel ,caroling, charity events , Church services, cards sent, gifts mailed, calls made to loved ones, gifts given and unwrapped (whew) . BUT OH, those Grinch types who tried to steal Christmas from my family along the way this year! They always provide a challenge each year to an already stressful and busy time.
Car Dealer Grinch: My daughter and
son-in-law bought a new car for Christmas, with their expanding family
they needed a larger car and bought a 2008 Dodge Caravan. The
dealership was wonderful until they did not keep their promises about
the financing so on Christmas eve of all days they are battling to get
this solved. More on this later, AskPatty.com to the rescue, dun dun
Health and Loss Grinch: My Mother
had a mild heart attack in December. My uncle passed away just after
Thanksgiving which tried to put a damper on the holiday spirit; her
heart attack was the day of his memorial service! Mom is fine now but
we are all missing our deal Uncle Loyde so much this Christmas, he was
so much fun and full of Christmas cheer! So he will be remembered and
many fun stories shared this year to fend off those sad Grinch-Mess
Family Grinch: Have one of those
family members who always seems to rear their ugly drama just in time
for Christmas? Our #1 family Grinch canceled Christmas altogether with
us this year, poor old grumpy Grinch, hope he enjoys himself all alone
today! He needs a good does of Love, Forgiveness and Gratitude to cure
his Grinch-Mess blues.
Parking and Traffic Grinch: Something happens to Grinch people out when the shopping mall parking lots get full the traffic gets snarled up during the holidays. Someone needs to invent Un-Grinch Pills for the screaming, parking spot aggressive stealing and honkers to help us all enjoy the holidays more each year.
Sure you have your own Grinch-Mess stories to share! Please do leave your comments on them below.
