My daughter shared this with me this year…..it seems as though this was the response that little Cindy received when she invited the Grinch to Christmas Dinner? Anyone have someone like this at your dinner table? We will pray that their hearts grew a little bit bigger this Chirstmas just as the Grinch’s did….
“even if i wanted to go, my schedule wouldnt allow it.
4:00 wallow in self pity.
4:30 Stare in the Abyss.
5:00 Solve world hunger, tell no one.
6:00 Dinner with myself.. I cant cancel that Again!
7:00 wrestle with my self loathing…
course if i move the loathing to 9 i could still be done in time to lie in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness……but what would i wear!”
but oh dear!
how true can it be!!!
I know it, I was laughing when she shared it with me….
I don’t know of anyone who spent the entire day with/as the Grinch, but perhaps all of us found a moment or two when he tried to crash our gates.
So true Jim, but hopefully, when the day was done, so was the Grinch
I agree with J.T. that The Grinch made some appearances but on the whole it wasn’t too bad !!
Glad to hear that Phil.
Yes – what JT said!! The Grinch does pop in and out around here, but not so much as to ruin!
I hear you Fran…sometimes the Grinch is me!?!
WE had a guest pastor on SUnday who read the entire book of the Grinch who stole Christmas to the children. He was comparing him to Herod. This is so funny, so true, Andie! And how often have I been the grinch? Food for thought :).
Wow, never thought of the Grinch as Herod…I’ll have to spend some time on that one. I just love creative people.
I think wrestling with self-loathing is a year ’round thing for some folks, aye?
Thank you for your kind words and for the biblical reference I was seeking.
Yes, I agree and some people don’t even recognize it in themselves.
Well – our Grinch this year was the various viruses my husband and I were fighting all thru the holiday. This Grinch is still hanging on – by a thread!
Glad you’re feeling better Kris…just remember, that ole’ Grinch doesn’t succeed in the end
I haven’t given him my address …
Ohhhh, I really like that!
‘even if i wanted to go, my schedule wouldnt allow it.’
probably my ‘grinch-iest’ failing. Either that or trying to do too much. Doctor Zeuss was a wise man.
Much wisdom in those Dr. Seuss books….I love the Lorax as well! Thanks Mairie for stopping by.
Hi, just wandered over from Judy’s Lights-Camera-Action blog because in a comment you also mentioned having snow, so did we here on the VA eastern shore which almost never gets a storm of this size – over 15 inches! I didn’t spend Christmas with the grinch, but know a few people who sure can act like him sometimes. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year Beatrice and I’m so happy you stopped by. We are up here in CT and are used to snow but, this one was a big one here as well. I hope you were able to enjoy your snow by staying in and staying warm.
Funny you should ask this question. There was a certain someone in my family who I called the Grinch and Ebenezer Scrooge this Christmas! … LOL …
Thanks for stopping by my blogs. Talk to you soon!
Oh Judy, the Grinch and Scrooge….wow, hope that snapped them out of it. Your pictures were beautiful.
Yeah the Grinch and Scrooge. He eventually snapped out of it. But I was doubtful. … lol …
Anyway, I focused on Christ to help me get through it all. He is the reason for the wonderful season. Thanks for the complements concerning my photos. I’m trying to improve my photography bit by bit. I’d love to be a photographer professionally. Maybe one day.
Don’t give up your dream Judy, your photos are beautiful. Glad the grinch/scrooge snapped out of it – tis the Season, right?
