    af day Mon 24 Dec

    Well morning all - I am back in New Zealand after a great exhausting trip to India. No alcohol for me despite sleeping very close to a well stocked mini bar. Now waiting for my flight home and Christmas Day. Will be a quiet sober one with my partner and daughter - am looking forward to it. My duty free bag is full of chocolate!
    I hope you all are happy and safe over Christmas - I have yet to catch up on posts. This is a tough tough time for many people and esp those afflicted with the AL beast - and even for many not addicted - AL can f..k up their Christmas. A beast wrapped in tinsel for too many.
    But I want us to have fun (and even if we just want to avoid Christmas, thats cool too), let those who can drink and be merry do so. It will be great to have a Christmas with no regrets.
    Santa's first stop is in New Zealand!

    Happy Christmas Eve to all!!

    TT--glad you had a good trip and are on the way home! Sleeping next to the mini-bar? That was a good test--and you passed with flying colors Love the tinsel colored demon image. Will remember that.

    Mick, how old is your daughter? Guess she thinks Daddy is an endless money bag, huh??? :H Like your reasons for not drinking. Training to be a Mormon--may use that one, although the handcuff thing is more appropos in my case

    Only started with one little boy yesterday a.m. at church yesterday, as the "over 3" crowd had a sepcial activity planned. Mother brought him in and said she'd forgotten the DIAPER BAG in the car??!! Then looked over at the changing table. I think I smelled something right away, but ignored it. Almost a half hour into the service, another mom came in with a one year old girl. She had her diaper bag and a baby bottle. Told me the bottle was there if the child needed it. Hmmm. . .wondered ho I'd know that. Anyay, she was a seet little thing, and all was well. The mom of the little boy told me that he is thre, but not potty trained. OKAY. I have this duty again in three weeks, and I'll have a full crew then, I bet

    Can, how old is your son? I hope the cracked window was a result of the cold hitting the warm air. And hope it orked out, but too bad you had to miss our hike. I managed a two mile walk, wearing my ear muffs and gloves, and it felt so good to be out and moving. I am going to try to get out more, as long as it isn't freezing or icy.

    Work today until 2:00 or so, and we exchange gifts and have a litle lunch. The home and we have church later, which should be nice.

    Wishing everyone a great AF day!
