'Tis the Season

It's been awhile...

I didn't escape getting sick after all. Ended up with an ear infection and bronchitis. All better now.

My daughter was here for 3 weeks. It was a great visit. She got in a lot of driving time, much to my hubby's despair the one day she went on the highway ;). Of course I was happily not paying attention to the speedometer... After that she kept to the speed limit in a quest to gain back his trust!

I have only spoken to my son a couple of times. The first time he was too busy smoking, drinking and whatever else to talk. The last time was earlier this week. He sounded not bad. At first I thought he sounded fairly clear headed then I realized it was more focused... He was happy that he had his head back as he had lost it and he has been listening to what his medications are doing to his head and body and doesn't like it. So yeah... focused just not really in a good way. Still he doesn't seem to be doing as bad as I feared.

On the home front things are good. Really good actually.

As each year passes I am learning to appreciate and love what I do have. I have always liked Christmas however now I can say that I love Christmas! It's not about the presents. It's just the fact that it is Christmas. I love my decorations and my villages that my daughter helped me to set up this year. Truthfully, after she got over her bah-humbug moment, she set up most of it.

I don't know if it's; that I'm getting older, what I have been through this past couple of years, or even my antidepressants. Honestly I don't care what the reason is, but I can say that I'm truly happy. I guess it stems from being truly grateful. I look at my home and I'm happy in it. I'm happy with who I am. I'm happy with the live that we are trying to build.

I wish that my children could be a big part of that life however I accept that they have to choose their own paths, good or bad.

Christmas is just around the corner and I would like to wish you all a wonderful holiday season!

Merry Ho Ho!
