These last few weeks have been a struggle for me. My family has a pretty jam-packed end of year, each year. Dave and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on the 23rd, but we did it by celebrating my family’s annual Christmas celebration. Then there was the three Christmas-related church services that I attended and sang in the choir. We did our family celebration on Christmas Eve after the 4pm family-friendly church service, then we tucked our children into bed and I went back to church for the 11pm service. On Christmas morning, I was the only one that attended the 9am service since I had to sing in the choir. That gave me the unusual opportunity to spend time after the service visiting with my friends…I even got to have 3 cups of coffee un-in-ter-up-ted!!! There was no chasing of children for me:)

So where was I…oh yes, the closing of the year…

The 30th is my husbands birthday, but he may as well pick a different day because we usually don’t feel like celebrating then. I’ll back up to the 29th. That was the morning I had a very unpleasant “lady procedure” taken care of. The doctor found something and did a biopsy. To say it was unnerving would be an understatement, but since I don’t like to burden people with my problems I mostly kept it to myself. When I finally made my way to a computer that morning, I realized that it was the one year anniversary of my husband’s Aunt’s death. She had a 16 month struggle with breast cancer and on 12/29/2010 was welcomed to her heavenly home.
