Hi everybody. Happy holidays.. Hoping the New year brings good luck, good health, good news to all of us. Feeling a little down this xmas.. I lost my mom in 2009 to uterine cancer.. after 4 mos.. that's all.. 4 mos from the time we got the official diagnosis till she was gone. It's been rough but I thought I was doing pretty well.... but I've been in a funk the last week or so .. I just miss my parents both so much. I went to the grocery store today.. what a madhouse.. and not the store I normally go to.. it's an old store, the aisles are too narrow, there were people milling about everywhere, people trying to stock shelves.. and since I'm not used to that store.. It took me forever to find everything I needed.. at one point I felt like just abandoning my cart and fleeing.. and everywhere I turned.. a reminder of my mom and Dad.. the choc. covered cherries and ribbon candy my Dad used to buy every year.... the pie crust mix my mom always used... it just hurts.. fewer xmas cards every year, not able to get together with good friends this year..my neighbor (whom I really do belive is bi-polar) ignoring us.. sometimes she's all friendly , other times barely ack. our existence.. sent her a xmas card.. no word, no thank you.. no go to h*ll.. nothing.. It's just getting to me this year.. so I needed to vent and this is the place for that..
Big hugs to all..
