« Hi. Vomit. | Main | Mia Monday Tuesday #50: Sick Christmas Edition »

Have yourself a merry little whatever

39 hours 15 minutes and counting vomit free. That's a Christmas fucking miracle if ever there was one.

Went to our box today and collected a pile of cards and a notice that one of you lovely people had sent a package that arrived in plenty of time for Christmas but that we were too sick to collect and now must wait until Tuesday. Thank you all for sharing your cards and children and names and postmarks with me these last few weeks, it has given me tremendous joy.

Thank you also, all of you, for enriching my life. I look forward every day to the little bits of conversation we share and I am richer and better and happier for each of you. You are all, every one of you, a Christmas fucking miracle, and don't you ever forget it.

The kitchen, the doggy, a huge bag full of balls, and two last-minute Elmo DVD's await Mia's discovery in the morning. Chris and I are beside ourselves with anticipation.

I hope you are all merry and bright. Happy Christmas.

Christmas is never so fun as when you have children to share it with. Here's wishing you and Chris and Mia a very Merry Christmas. I look forward to another fun year of glimpsing into your life.

"Christmas fucking miracle" - has a certain ring to it ;-) I'm glad you're all feeling a bit better. Merry ho ho!

I'm so glad to hear the vomiting has subsided for Christmas...I was worried there!

BTW: I had SO wanted to get on the card list and in return send you a card but then after Thanksgiving we bought a house and had to fix it up and, well, I could go on and on but, you get the point!

Merry Christmas!

merry christmas beth. may it be vomit free.

I think I've caught your sick bug :-( Could make christmas dinner interesting...

Happy christmas to you all, I really enjoy reading your blogs and watching Mia grow x

And a Merry Christmas to you too!
And you and yours are a Merry Christmas Miracle for me too!

Merry Holidays!

Merry Christmas!

I can't wait to have children of my own to share the joys of the season with. For now, I'll have to settle for my fiance's neices. And they do love Christmas!

That is a gorgeous picture of your little darling! Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to the entire Cactus-Fish family!! :)

Meery x-mas to the Cactus-Fish-Mia household. Hope Mia enjpys it and is better.

Merry Christmas, Beth!

Which dog did you get?

Hey which doggy did you finalize on?

Merry Christmas Beth and to your family as well, I hope it was wonderful!

Aw, Christmas morning through the eyes of a child--precious.

(Like DisneyWorld--I never thought I would enjoy DisneyWorld as an adult, and then I went with two little ones, and it was like watching magic being believed in. Which is a pretty neat thing to watch. Anyway.)

That is, indeed, a gorgeous pic of Mia. Did she love Christmas or what? Glad you were vomit-free--here's hoping the vomit free streak extended through yesterday!

I'm glad you're feeling better, Beth! I hope Mia continues to mend so she can play with her kitchen and her other gifts!

merry christmas! (a day late, but hey its the thought that counts right?) i hope you are all nice and healthy again really soon. (new years is coming ya know...)

Hope you all are feeling better and had a wonderful Christmas! (tenses, shmenses)

I can honestly say I've never ever been called a "christmas miracle" (and definitely never a "Christmas fucking miracle"!). Hey, the monkey has the same dress and tights and shoes!!! I'll send you a pic!

I'm glad you and Mia are feeling better ... Chinese food is the best medicine, I hear. (Well, that, and my mother chicken soup.) Merry (belated) Christmas and happy New Year, Fishy-Cacti!

Meet the Fish

I want to get a pet duck and keep it in the bathtub.
I am addicted to chap stick and altoids.
I am freakishly flexible.
