It's been a long hiatus but it was one I needed to take. I know for many saying good bye to a pet isn't that tough, but it hit me harder then I expected. I think because it brought back memories of family I've lost as well. I admit, I went into a bit of a funk, but I'm fine now :0). I'm back to my old self and remembering all the happy times and why Christmas was and is so special. I hope everyone had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and that the New Year welcomes us all with much happiness, prosperity and health.
I can just imagine how busy all of you have been (me too!) and must say THANK YOU to all who left me such wonderful messages.
I've missed everyone and will start playing catch up this weekend. But first! I must take down my tree. It's so dry :0(. It was ready to be pulled down over a week ago but I wanted to have a tree up for Christmas day. We really ran our heater much more then usual. It's been extremely cold here (for us warm bloods, it's been frigid!) and the heat was going on and off all day. Sadly, my wonderful tree couldn't stand it. So today, I'm packing away all the wonderful ornaments until next year. I suggested (to the family) that we buy a faux tree...you'd think I suggested I cut off my own limb judging my the looks of horror that crossed their faces! LOL!
Well, I"m off to clean up, pack and prepare for New Year's. Hugs to you!
