Does it feel like Christmas yet? Almost. We don’t have a lot of money, there are daily stresses that get us down and we can’t visit John‘s family and be with loved ones (again) this year. Right now we’re just looking at this weekend. It’s a special time of year no matter what situation you’re in or how you celebrate and we’re going to make the best of it.
I think the plan is to bring John’s laptop to my parent’s house tomorrow along with the iSight. I was saying it would be fun (and heartwarming) to get our two grandmas on the line. Both in their 80s, both the strong matriarchs of the family and both with very thick ethnic accents.
The family time will be good, the food will be filling and abundant, and we just can’t wait. I’ll have a ‘year in review’ post in the coming week, and to quote Big Chris: “it’s been….. emotional.”
