Hello all! OH EM GEE it feels good to be back! Not that I went anywhere really. Well, unless you count the doctor's office about a million times, because then yes, I did go somewhere. Heh, I know, I'm confusing you. It's okay, the feeling passes. Anyway, so kids, how was everyone's Christmas? What did Santa bring you? What'd he forget? I think my stuff must all be on back order or something because I woke up Christmas morning and ran outside but didn't see the red convertible that I asked for. Or the "man of my dreams" waiting for me under the mistletoe. Yeah, I'm sure that's what happened. Back orders. In reality, I totally got sick and am still sick. I'll spare you details but suffice to say, my Christmas sucked. I spent it home alone. I wasn't well enough to travel to my cousin's house. I missed the caroling that I looked forward to so much. I didn't see a lot of my family, that I only get to see once a year. To say I was bummed about that would be an understatement. But amidst the medicine induced fog I was in, I counted my blessings and considered myself to be incredibly fortunate to have all that I have. Besides, I got to sit in front of the Christmas tree and admire the very elaborate nativity scene that my mom and my aunt created. I listened to music, drank my hot chocolate and remembered Christmases from long ago. I've also been using this time to read up on blogs I have not read, writing, trying clean out the "clutter" of 2011, to make room for 2012.
But enough about me. Your turn. Fill me in.
