Sooz’s Holiday Letter

 

Dear Folks:
Tis the time of year where I write about MY past year. I have had many trials and tribulations this year, and yet, I have also had some very GOOD things that have happened.
A few dear friends and relatives have passed this year, and it was THOSE people who have Helped guide my path throughout life. Probably the most heart wrenching thing was when I lost my substitute mother, my Aunt Carol. She was indeed my guiding life force for many of the decisions I have made in my life.

I suffered Pneumonia earlier this year, and that experience, has brought me closer to the realization of what LIFE is all about. We never really THINK about our lives until something Earth shattering happens.

That is where I must thank all of YOU, yes…YOU guys!!!! Without your guiding words and your inspiring words of FAITH, I would NOT have been able to do this.

There are SO many of you who have shed your guiding light upon me that I will NEVER be able to truly express my gratitude. You ALL know who you are and let me just say that I shall NEVER be able to express my greatest thoughts and feelings.

I wish you ALL a Happy Holiday and hope you all have a very prosperous New Year.
Until Later…
Sooz

The Holiday Season…Ya Gotta Love It

So, Black Friday has past, the Holiday Season has officially begun, and the madness has begun to creep into all of our brains. “Madness??? What??? You must be mistaken Sooz, the Holiday Season is a time for Joy, Camaraderie, Togetherness, and sheds Peace onto all men.”

OK…Don’t get me wrong, I’m all FOR that Peace, Joy and Camaraderie stuff, I’m referring to the slightly above average nerve jangling you get from all the Holiday “Get it all DONE” routine. You know, like fighting the crowds, setting up all the lights, cursing at the people in the parking lot who JUST took your space after you’ve had your blinker on WAITING for it for at least a half hour…GRRRRRRRRRRRR…..OK…I’m calm now…..MMMMMMMMMM(Hums)…

It just seems to me that the Spirit is dampened by all this Hull a Baloo. Why can’t the Holidays just be simple? You know, have friends over, get drunk, have sex all night, and then open some “OTHER” presents in the morning. I mean, doesn’t THAT sound more GIVING to you?

But Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have to get going RIGHT after we’ve had our third piece of pie, brace ourselves for the weather, (OK…It isn’t BAD here but STILL, it IS in other places), get into our cars, and fight the horrendous traffic jams so we make sure we get that DOOR BUSTER SPECIAL. By the way, even after doing all this, I STILL didn’t get that damned DOOR BUSTER SPECIAL. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then there’s the Holiday cleaning and cleaning, followed only by the cooking and cooking…THEN…MORE cleaning….Yikes!!! It’ only December 3rd. and I’m POOPED already. Somebody just SHOOT me now…

 OK…Here is what I’m gonna do, EVERYBODY is invited over to MY house for Christmas this year. The thing is…You have to be willing to just come over, get drunk with me and have sex all night, THEN, hand out a couple of Walmart specials the next day. I was gonna give you the DOOR BUSTER SPECIAL but… Well, You know…

Until Later…
