Christmas is not my husband's favorite holiday. His father passed away during the Christmas season back in the 90's and it has never been the same for him. It was okay when we still had a little person at home, he put on the holiday face and stuck it out. After my son moved out of town for school, for a few years, I didn't even put up a tree. Since my sister is here, I'm feeling more festive, so I started in the kitchen. Husband seems okay with it...so I'll put up the "plug and glow" tree in the living room in the next couple of days. It's only 4 feet tall, but with little ornaments and candy canes, it's pretty cute!
My baby sis was on a photo hunt yesterday. Somehow she seems to think that it is always open season on pictures of me. LOL She took this one while I was doing something on the computer...probably looking for yarn or fabric, I seem to be pretty intent. LOL I changed it to black and white since that color scheme seems to hide the wrinkles better.
I am still working on various projects, but not staying with one long enough to actually get anything finished. LOL Focus, focus, focus! I keep saying I will do this, or this, or maybe this. And what do I do? That, and that, and that! LOL I did all the housework yesterday, so once I get grocery shopping out of the way, I will have the afternoon for ME!
Short update on Dad...things are about the same. He seems to sound a bit louder when he breathes, but the Hospice nurse says that it's in his throat, not his lungs. Friday night was pretty bad. I really thought that it was time. I was surprised at myself. After two and a half years on Hospice, you would think I was ready....nope. Still scares me to my soul. His breathing is quieter today...
Hug the ones you love, be kind to one another.
