I totally meant to join in national blog posting month, but the 1st rolled around and I had nothing to say, no picture to post, etc. So sue me. Only, not.

I’m sitting here with my Christmas spice candle burning, listening to A Very She & Him Christmas. I guess I’m ready for the holidays. I love Christmas time, and so did my mom. I always felt closest to her around the holidays decorating together, making cookies, shopping. I think that’s why I’m ready for them to be here now.

Speaking of mom, after 15 weeks of waiting, the plaque was finally up on her niche, only it wasn’t the niche I picked. It was the one next to it. I went on Monday and got everything straightened out. The wrong number niche was on the paperwork, but they’re fixing it. We’re going to place her on the 18th. Everything is supposed to be fixed by then.

My Uncle James, the one we went to visit in September, passed away from lung cancer at the end of October. His memorial was this past Saturday. Zach and I went, even though my dad didn’t want to. I knew he was going to undergo more chemo because some cancer had shown in his lymph nodes, but apparently from the time they found it to the time chemo was scheduled, it spread rapidly. He spent the last of his life in the hospital. I”m very sad to have lost him. There’s a lot of other crap going on with the family that is positively disastrous, but I’m not going into that right now.

Maybe I will attempt the rest of NaBloPoMo. We’ll have to see if I can come up with things to post.

  1. I’m sorry about your uncle. It’s been a rough year. Hopefully things will improve in the new year and you can start fresh.

    I love Christmas too, and though my Jewish husband complains bitterly about ornaments at Target in August, I secretly love it and only pretend to be appalled at how it’s just starting earlier and earlier. Christmas is full of such warm happy memories- i would love it if it lasted all year.

    I know this Christmas will be hard without your mom, but try to remember all these things that make you love the season instead of letting her absence overshadow everything. I bet she’d want that for you.


  2. It is never too late to hop in to NaBloPoMo. Execept for 12/1:)
    Sorry about your uncle but glad for you that you got to see him before he passed.
    Be sure to use your Christmas Love to build Holiday Happies with Zack. I am no longer a happy Christmas person. I don’t know why – it just depresses me…
