Christmas 2003

I'm still thinking of Christmas's past. Two years ago we had our usual Christmas Eve with the family which left us free for Christmas Day.

We drove to Belen to spend Christmas Day with B and G and B's father Sam. B had fixed a great dinner and Hubby had a good time with G and Sam, they watched TV while B and I fixed dinner and cleaned up. B ex-husband and one of his friends came by after the kitchen was cleaned and B fed them. How many ex-wifes would still be friendly enough with their X's to feed them Christmas Dinner. This is truely an amazing relationship. It works well for them and certainly help their three kids and grandkids. We spent several years going to Belen for Christmas, Sam was an amazing man. He was a retired railroader with lots of interest in life and things around him. He has pasted away but we do miss the time we spent with him.

So many different times of Christmas's, each one of them to be remembered for something different. Last year it was just P, D, Hubby, Michelle and I, we had a very good Christmas and P was doing well on her chemo. We are looking foreward to Christmas this year with all of us again. The weather should be on the mild side, no snow but no rain just sunshine and warm breezes. P won't have any chemo until after the first of the year. Chemo is keeping her level without things progressing but it is not curing it either. That is very discouraging for all of us, we just have to keeping hoping and praying for a break through.

Well, our worst fears are coming true. When E came back tonight, he told us he is moving back to Altus and will get a job there, hopefully. It's just a big mess. He let D talk him into moving back and not getting divorced. At least he will be there to be sure R is cared for. I was thinking that P needs to call and talk to E. Maybe she can give him some insight and help him see a better solution. I just don't know how to pray, since R is involved. He seemed to be glad to see D when we left him at Amarillo the other day.

I have been fighting a bug of some kind since Saturday morning. Couldn't sleep much at all last night. I was just about to go to sleep when E came home and we sat down and talked with him and he opened his Christmas present and stocking. Now I can't go to sleep again, having a hard time breathing.

It's nice that I have another week off from work. I will need the time, I think, to deal with things around here.

It didn't seem like Christmas today, sunshiny and warm outside, I guess, didn't go out. Just bundled up and took Ibuprofen or Tylenol for my body aches. I hope I don't have any more of those.
