Rambling on a Crappy December

Well, December got the best of me. I think I maybe read three books... My library fines are nuts! I am hoping they will take pity on me and even half them...

Since I updated last the cc's sister lost her battle with cancer. I still can't quite believe it! We found out she was sick and then less than 2 weeks later she passed. He got a chance to see her, though, so that was a good thing. It sort of dampened the holiday spirit around here, but at least she is not suffering anymore. She was in lots of pain and when the morphine wore off she went a bit crazy hallucinating and other traumatic things. I am pretty sad that I never got to meet her. I think I would have really liked her...

Then, the day after that happened we had a storm that knocked out the power for a couple days. It wasn't a blizzard because there was no snow and they couldn't call it a hurricane because the season is over, but it was a bad storm that we are still recovering from. The power poles to this grid snapped in half! That's why ours was so slow coming back on. They had to fix the poles entirely. I think my neighbours think I am crazy. I was worried about my freezer. I almost drove the cc nuts worrying that all the food in there would ruin! We have a generator, but we were not really expecting the storm so we had like no gas and all the gas stations were powerless until the afternoon...

Now, when things should be calm and fun I have a stupid cold! Doesn't that just beat all... The cc just called to offer me a list of options to try and beat it. Now that my throat isn't sore, though, I am feeling closer to human. The coughing will set in soon and then I won't feel so chipper, but before that I am trying to get the house to rights before Christmas and people potentially stopping by.

So, this is my long-winded way of saying sorry I vanished off the face of the planet! I am not sure if I will bother trying to catch-up. I will probably just start fresh in 2011 and hope for the best. I might do a best of list, though. I will have to think about it more! I hope December is going a bit better for other people.
