Need more tissues

I have gone through far too many tissues in the past couple days and my nose hurts from wiping it. But who wants to hear about runny noses.

Yesterday I mentioned that Amanda is working on something for Christmas. Years ago I started making new games each year for Christmas that we would play on Christmas morning and it made the gift opening last longer than 10 minutes. I heard a lot of grumbling over the years but I believe that they secretly enjoyed them.

Amanda has decided that she wants to revive the Christmas games. She's started on one the other day and this year it will be Christmas Jeopardy.  This is what she has so far.

Every year there would also be a letter from Santa included with the game. I wonder if this one will have a letter to go with it.

I'm headed out to lunch with an old friend today. We grew up in the same neighborhood. I saw her a couple years ago and we met for lunch. Before that it had been probably 30 some years since we had seen each other.

  7. I feel ya on the tissues. Our colds have lasted over 2 1/2 weeks. I wish I had stock in Kleenex for that time. Ugh. I hope your cold doesn't last as long as mine. It's very discouraging.

  8. Sorry you have had such a close relationship with the Kleenex. I hate a runny nose.

    Cool on the game. It sounds like fun.

    Have a great day out with your friend.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Ann. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  10. I use linen, have a collection and gather them when doing laundry. Keep tissues for emergencies and company.

  11. The game looks like it'll be fun! I'm impressed with starting on Christmas stuff already since I usually start on December 17th. LOL! Enjoy your lunch with your friend!

  12. I'm sorry about your cold, but I'd much rather have a runny nose than coughing spells. I had the nose version a few weeks ago and stockpiled supersoft Kleenex to pamper myself. It helped my nose some, but it was even better psychologically. Fingers crossed you feel better soon!

    I'm happy your daughter is reviving the games. :)
