December came and went; like the snow that wasn't around for our gray Christmas.
Still no decorating for this Holiday… like Thanksgiving, I had to ask for help and I didn't cook much.
No trip home to New England, but rather a soft, messy Christmas at home with our new little one.
Visits to the grandparents newly ensconced in assisted living and out of their house,
Presents through Secret Santa at my Mother in Law's home,
Video-chat with my parents to say "I love you," and "Merry Christmas!"
Thank you notes piling up on my list of "To Do's," and I've not begun them because I'm still not fully comfortable in my body and I've hurt my back besides and things are STILL not over.
Much love was exchanged! Reminiscing over the visits from four DEAR friends and the caring they send: delightful.
Being thankful for my brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and mother-in-law and the rest of J's family out here--- how could we have gotten on without a supportive family on both sides?
Blink, and December is over: can you believe it's going to be 2014?
