My Christmas miracle has arrived! I got the call today…I’ll be headed back home to be with my family this Monday morning. My time in El Paso is coming to an end.
As my time is coming to an end, I reflect. I’ve learned that here every fast food restaurant has jalapeños available & salsa packets upon request. It is also used in just about every meal imaginable…and Salsa is always offered for your eggs.
Today, for the first time I had food from a place called Chicos. They had these tacos with shredded cheese that you eat in this thin tomato soup like concoction. It wasn’t bad.
My favorite place to eat since coming here, though? Cattle Baron Their food was fantastic! I really enjoyed their Prime Rib…and their salad bar was quite impressive.
I stayed at the Marriott near the airport. They have an amazing Oriental Chicken Salad with a mandarin orange salad dressing. The people in their Concierge lounge are amazing, as are the folks down at their restaurant for breakfast. I’ve made some buddies & I’ll miss our little chats. They have been so warm and welcoming.
I’ve come to love these mountains…and will be sad to see them fade away in the distance…but will be so happy to be with my family and friends again. I’ve missed them!
Plus, this time of year brings out the goofy in my buddies, so I can’t wait to see what hijinx ensue this year… Take a look at some of these from Christmases past…
This is my best friend in her festive silliness….
This is my buddy, Nick…about to do his rendition of “The Lollipop King” for our entertainment.
And this is my mom & sis…who are always at the ready to lend their voices for any random carrolling spree that may break out.
As the song goes…”I’ll Be Home For Christmas”.
Anyone else have any news that has helped to make “your days be merry and bright”? Or if you’re struggling with this holiday season…feel free to share that, too!
