...And what a year it was. Probably the foggiest, busiest, certainly the saddest year of my life. In ways, I am glad to see 2007 behind me. In other ways, I would love to cling to parts of it, and never let them go. But, time does go on, and as they say, waits for no man (or woman).
Our holiday season this year was as good as it could be, and being with family was wonderful. I think everyone just kind of "stepped around" the hole that was there, with Roger's absence. It was the first time in 5 years that I have been home for Christmas, so it was good to spend it with all of the extended family. And, since my folks now live just down the road from Roger's dad, it was easy to make the rounds. We ended up seeing almost everyone, although a few cousins got missed. Roger's grandpa is still in the nursing home, and I don't believe he really knew us this time. My dad has been having some health problems, as well, and will be seeing the doctors this week. And as if that weren't enough, I spent the first minutes of Christmas Eve going into the ER in Arkansas, with a kidney stone. Chelsea drove us home later in the day. I also will be seeing a doctor this week. One good thing about that, though, is that it sort of took my mind off of other things (and the drugs they gave me weren't too bad, either!).
