Hey there!

I hope that all the festivities went well, and are going well for everyone. I know just how stressful they can be.

Christmas Eve, went well. We always have it at my house. Other than my mother's usual comments that bring everyone down. It went well.

Christmas day we went to my sister in laws house. It was a mob scene at best. It was a fun day because there was always someone to talk to. Everytime you turned around someone was there. It was very family like, and the day went well.

As you can tell I'm not really into the Christmas holiday season. It just gets me more annoyed than it should. All the worry, and it is over before you know it. Now I am just looking forward to getting the tree down, after New Year Day, and getting on with daily activities.

Well I'm going to visit some other more exciting blogs now. So off I go!

Well here comes the big day! I hope that everyone is prepared with their gifts, and menus, and such. Me ... well I just wait till the last minute for everything of course. I'm not sure where I am going or if I will be going to Mom's as usual. She just loves to fuss for us all, and who am I to complain. I really should be taking over the reigns this year, and perhaps I will. I'll get back to you on that one.

Everybody wants a scarf! So my nimble fingers have been mass producing them to the point where I am begging my husband to help out. He is a little intrigued, but still thinks its for women. I have faith that I will be able to get through to him soon, and get those fingers crocheting, and knitting in no time. I'll get back to you on that one as well. LOL

My daughter moved out in May, and took with her, her favorite cat Daphney. Well Daphney happened to be sick (very sick), and eventually a couple of months ago we decided it was best to let her soul go to a better place (the vet helped). I couldn't talk about this because my SP at crochetville would have caught on as to who I was. Any who... an update on that topic is that my daughter was very emotionally depressed going home, and not having anything to care for. Last week she adopted a little boy, and now I have a little grandson. They even let me name him! Chris and her boyfriend couldn't come up with a name, and when I passed my idea by them individually they loved it. So he is now Romeo! Needless to say Romeo is a kitty. As any Grandma I am in love with him completely! He loves to give kisses... thus the name. I will post some Christmas pics ASAP!

I may be a little attached because I also lost one of my babies a few weeks ago. The vet said that she was in the forgone stages of liver damage, and that there was nothing I could do. She was very close to my heart my Ginger, and she was very sweet. The sweetest baby that I had actually. She never bothered anyone, or any other cat. Although they tormented her. Ginger was about 13 years old. The day that she died she was lying next to me on the couch, I knew it was going to happen the night before, but it was as if she waited for me. I can't say that it was easy to watch, but I'm sure glad that I was alone her. She was one of my friends, and always sat on my lap as I typed on the computer. I will miss her dearly. Wow did I cry!

Just a side note: Please people think hard before you get yourself a pet. You really should be ready for all the home damage that they cause, and know that you have to be responsible before you adopt. Its a big job to jump into, and I really do lecture people all the time. Don't do it, if you can't do it for the entire life of the pet. They become family!

Other than that I am back, and sane finally. I think. I'm cleaning, and decorating like the old me of years ago. I'm really getting into the spirit of things. I've lost love, but I will live for others that still need me. I have to learn to go forward. (and no I'm not in therapy... lol)

I'll be reading and catching up on everyone else's blogs tomorrow. I hope there is alot to catch up on.

Bye for now Brats!
