I just finished reading over my blog entries in December 2011, 2012 and 2013. I really have gotten better!
I look forward to going home after work. I enjoy my weekends and days off.
I was tearing up reading those old entries. Even if they had been written by someone else, they would have made me cry. What a sad life that person was living!
Life is a lot different for me now. I try to be as independent as possible. I fear depending too much on someone else. Maybe that will change some day.
Christmas is not such a major event anymore. I did put up my little pink trees and did some decorating. I've invited Bert and his son (& girlfriend) for Christmas brunch, Lupita and Jimmy, Woodie. Andy has promised to cook for us.
In 2009 we were all together for the holidays - including Kevin! We had a big Christmas that year. Andy went overboard with his cooking. It was a real family Christmas.
This Christmas 2014 promises to be the best I've had since the old days. I still have my friends, Jimmy and Lupita. Andy is coming. My good friend Bert will be with me. It will be fun.
I'm looking forward to the holiday break from work. I'd like to do some sewing for myself since the gift making is done.
I'm going to bake cookies. Biscotti are everyone's favorite.
The last few years have been a struggle. I think the hardest days are over now. I'm a survivor.
