I am not a big fan of Christmas. It is not that I don't enjoy the lights or the reason for the holiday. I hate the commercialism and greed. I hate seeing people act like animals on Black Friday. I hate reading about how someone went nuts and killed their entire family. Or the fires or natural disasters that displace people. I know these things happen every year. I guess it is just that the older I get the less tolerant I am. The kids all seem to only think of getting presents. I got gifts from my 12 year old daughter this year. The other kids blew everyone off. Even the 20 year old that works. The only one he got gifts for was his father. He works at Walmart for goodness sake! I gave him a list!
I also have a feeling of inadequacy. I for years bought for just about everyone I knew. I can't do that anymore. Immediate family only now! The kids seemed happy with what they got. Of course Sarah got a double dose, because she went to her Grandma's after and got tons of stuff plus a hundred dollars from her Dad and $100 gift card from her uncle! I think the best thing about Christmas this year was the service at church! Living Springs.
Anyhow, a lot has happened since August when I last blogged. I am not in treatment anymore! I am finished. I am due for a CAT scan in March. Also visiting the breast surgeon in Jan to discuss reconstruction. I should just jump in the water and do it! Going thru life as a woman with one breast is hard. Having two and a tummy tuck would be the bomb!
As usual I will add a couple pictures that I have taken. First is a sunset of course, second is my new hair!
Third is our first snowfall of the year. Last is some pigs. I like that picture. Shows just their backs but I love the colors. I love pigs in general. We raised some when I was a kid.
