it's almost christmas and we're all excited here. we were late starting this year, for some reason. we got the tree up two days ago. it's *so* wonderful to see the girls all excited. i've got two nieces, one three, and the other one. we all live together and i *love* it. it's especially good to be together right now. my dad died two years ago on december 8, at 5:30. my mom's been having a harder time with it, harder than last year. isn't grief funny? you think you're okay, and then *wham*. it hits you out of the blue.
so merry christmas, my dear friends.
