Literally the day after my last post, early morning, Rysa’s father passed away unexpectedly. The last week+ has been spent running around with the family trying to figure things out – lawyers, family visits, credit cards, funerals, telling the grandchildren, eyes crying out, etc – and has made for a very stressful and sorrowful Christmas season.
After a week, I got to spend time with family yesterday and we had a great time despite an outbreak of migraines. We managed to complete a 500-piece puzzle of dizzying donuts, had homemade lasagna and cookies, and exchanged presents. (I’m planning to steal my Grandmom’s new vase. She has been warned.) So while this has been a very stressful Christmas, I am very blessed to have my family safe around me – except my sister, who had better get her Christmas Elf butt up here so I can give her presents.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
