What is a “fat grump”?
What is the definition of a “fat grump”? Never heard that term before.
You’re explaining things to an M.D.. I practiced medicine for 40+ years, and had the same problem Bets does. I was able to solve the problem and have both worlds—marriage, 4 kids, career. It wasn’t easy, but I sincerely believe Bets could pull it off as I did.

Why can’t she have BOTH her career AND Gunther? Millions of people all over the globe successfully combine their families and their careers.

We’re leaving our tree up through January 6, Epiphany!
According to ages-old traditions, the Christmas tree is supposed to remain up through the feast of Epiphany, which marks the visit of the Magi or the three Kings, to the Christ child. The feast day is the traditional end of the holiday season; the “12th Day of Christmas” mentioned in the familiar Christmas carol. Christians in the West began celebrating Epiphany in the 4th century and up until the 19th century, and it was more important than Christmas Day. According to the Gospel of Matthew, the three wise men, Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar, followed the star of Bethlehem across the desert to meet the baby Jesus, offering gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. The gifts were symbolic of the importance of Jesus’ birth, the gold representing His royal standing; frankincense His divine birth; and myrrh His mortality. “The word ‘Epiphany’ comes from Greek and means ‘manifestation’. It celebrates ‘the revelation of God in His Son as human in Jesus Christ’” according to the article. “The six Sundays following Epiphany are known as the time of manifestation; the last Sunday of the Epiphany is celebrated as Transfiguration Sunday.”
We have wreaths outside.
I’m sorry you had a bad year. I hope you have some happy surprises on Christmas Day, even if the temperature is too spring-like.
