Christmas 2011

Well, Christmas 2011 has come and gone...and I guess the most honest assesment of it is that it wasn't the total pits, but it sure was a somber time as this was the first Christmas without my Dad. 

Most of my family was in Tennessee with my Mom, which I am thankful for...I really didn't want her to be alone.  I stayed in Florida with my 2nd oldest sister and her family.  We have spent quite a bit of time in TN since my Dad's passing and getting more time off from work for Christmas just wasn't going to happen this year.

I was also on call the week of Christmas for work, so that is never a fun thing.

I really tried to be happy with my sister's kids, but honestly, outside of that, I would have been perfectly happy to sleep it all away.  I'm relieved it's over and we survived it.  How's that for Christmas cheer?

I guess that's all I have for now.  I'm looking forward to getting back to my craft room for some card making that has nothing to do with Christmas...I guess a few weeks of anything goes cards might be what's in store. 

I'm ready to say goodbye to about you?



Your honesty is refreshing. I know there are others that will read this and totally relate.

I think some "anything goes" cards would be very inspiring--and fun!

Sending up a prayer for you...
