Christmas has officially begun! Fifteen minutes stand between me and two and a half days off. Presents are wrapped, family is here, and I’m safely ensconced in my parents’ house until they leave on December 26th. The move has been a little bizarre, but in the long run, not totally unwelcome. I can’t tell you how much a big, noisy house full of exuberant (and inebriated) people is keeping the sads away.
I find I don’t even miss David as a husband, but I do miss my friend. And I miss his family. Though it’s more difficult to miss them when my own family is so raucous, loving, and joy-filled. I wish they were here all the time.
And my friends. My friends have been my rocks for the past year. 2012 has been a trip to hell in a handbasket, but I am working my way back to really enjoying life, with the help of my friends (okay, and some moscato).
I can’t imagine how I would have gotten through all of this without these amazing people in my life.
God only knows what I’d be without you.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
