You are enough.

Be patient with yourself.

Looking for ideas for Christmas gatherings this year (including those via ZOOM)?

Consider a cacophonous game of Christmas Charades!

Pass out age-appropriate assignments to all attendees and let holiday hilarity ensue:

* Santa coming down the Chimney in full regalia (see right)

Uh-oh, he’s stuck!
Can you say Claus-trophobia?

* Santa filling the stockings (with COAL)

It’s a dusty job but someone’s got to do it

* Decorating the Christmas tree . . . with cats for companions

Dashing through the house, while looking for a box 
I am ready to pounce, quick as a frisky fox

* Demonstrate the (pre-pandemic) pandemonium of Black Friday Shopping

* Illustrate the after dinner coma  (Snoring = optional)

Santa’s after-season sabbatical!

Aah . . . that’s better!
