Oy! The holidays are upon us once again. It’s that time when I’m not sure if I should wish someone a Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Festive Kwanza or Blessed Solstice so consider yourself greeted.
Once again, our blessed little house decided to piss all over our charming holidays. In case you don’t remember, it did this last year with a foundation leak. This year, we were blessed with the Washing Machine drain line backing up and spilling water all over our one year old wood floors. Yeah! Now, I know the freaking holidays have officially begun! Well, in spite of it all, we did what we do best. We pulled floors up, dried shit, went to bed, got up at the butt crack of dawn and went to “stinking feet” for those of you who don’t know, it’s “Beautiful Feet Ministries”. We volunteer to work the Soup Kitchen every Christmas, but I digress…we did what we do best, we moved right along. Next year, we’ll be going out of town for the holidays, I’ll be damned if this is going to become tradition with us! LOL
A couple of positive notes:
1- As many of you may remember, we had visited a fertility clinic that we weren’t pleased with. We’ve contacted another Doctor in our area and will visit with them soon. I’ll keep you posted. :0)
2- Hopefully, before my “HELL” Semester starts, I will sit down and start writing again. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s just that I haven’t had the hours in the day to write. If it hasn’t been one thing, it’s been another. I am half tempted to cancel the holiday all together for next year.
3- My cousin-in-law gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on December 6, 2011. Here’s a picture of Madeline Sage when she was only a few hours old.
Have a safe and happy New Year!
