Buying Christmas gifts for Dean was next to impossible. No, buying Christmas gifts for him WAS impossible. When Christmas came this year, I was at a total loss as to what to get him. I felt tremendous frustration, disgust, anger, all aimed toward him. Let's just say my attitude was beyond being classified as "very poor." But, the difference in this Christmas season was beyond being even believable. But, I know what happened was real, because I experienced it. It was a nightmare!

It started with me burning a large number of food items, all in a twenty-four hour period. It was essentially practice toward baking my annual Christmas goodies. And, I failed miserably. Dean, Ammonia (our dog), and I sustained massive injuries from the food preparation debacle. From there I deceitfully spent an uncontrolled amount of money (in the hundreds) buying a kit to try to win a gingerbread house contest in my community. The winner would walk away with five hundred dollars in cash or gift cards to a local strip mall. Perfect! I could buy any number of wonderful things for Dean with that amount of money.

I never entered the contest, couldn't take back the kit. So, I was really in a fix financially. And then it got even worse!

I wouldn't believe all of it happened, if it hadn't happened to me. But, it did! Whoa... did it ever!

About the Author

I have been in love with the written word since I was old enough to read. After graduating college, I taught high school until I decided I wanted to spend more time "creating". So, twenty years after beginning to teach public school, I "retired myself" and now I write full time. After living half my life on the West Coast, we moved all the way across the country, where we now live on the East Coast. It is just the two of us after our one daughter had the audacity to grow up, marry, and move away. However, that "move away" is only five miles from our home. While writing, I also own and run a website business: I love to create, whether it is designing marriage vow renewal certificates, marriage certificates, creating romance plans for married couples, or writing books. I'm blessed by the Lord to do exactly what I love. You'll find a more complete introduction (with pictures), plus my other writing endeavors, at my website:
