I wish everyone a wonderful and blessed Christmas. 

We had a busy day even though three of the five of us are sick.  My mom and Jeremy both have what the dr calls the crud...hacking cough, stuffiness, sneezing, the Nyquil commercial.  Ashley and Lyric were also here...of course.  Lyric is sick and was running a fever.  I actually did pretty good faking being happy.  It wasn't til the presents started that I slipped and started to cry.  But we all survived it.

Lyric and Jeremy both got lots and lots of clothes.  Lyric's came from his aunt in Florida and Jeremy's came from Ashley.  Mom got two parakeets from Jeremy...which she absolutely adores.  She named them Sugar and Spice.  I got a gift certificate from from Jeremy.  Ashley and Lyric gave me a jigsaw puzzle and a tin of cookies.  Mom got the same.  Mom got Jeremy, Ashley and myself one of those digital frames.  I am so excited to be able to put all my pictures of Tommy in there.  Oh yeah, the babies got new food bowls from Grandma.

My gifts are still unfinished.  It has been a really hard month.  I was doing fairly good and on time until the 11th.  A dear family friend died quite unexpectedly.  We were all shocked by it.  When we went to visitation, I could have sworn it was Tommy in the casket.  His wife told me the same thing, before I told her.  It took me several days to be able to pick up a needle again.  I still haven't been able to get over all the depression and emotions.  I don't remember last Christmas at all, with the exception of getting Tommy's death certificate on Christmas Eve.

Enough depressing talk for one night, especially tonight.  God Bless each and everyone of you and yours.  Even if you don't read my blog, I am wishing it for everyone in the world tonight.

Hey GF -- at least the holidays are over and we can all move on. I hope everyone is over their crud and did not pass it on to you.

Hey, that gift card to Thread Art is a good thing! Enjoy picking out some things.
