Well another year is almost gone and again wasn't able to see family for Christmas or at least not in person. My brother Jay did say he was going to try to get us all together on Skype. It'll be nice but not as good as if was there and could give everyone a hug. My youngest Shawn just turned 18 last month and my oldest turned 19 last April. Happy that my brother tells them that i do love and miss them, they are always in my thoughts just like my nephews and the rest of my family. We tried to make it it's just things stopped us again like problems in the house and truck transmission not fixed yet. And of course all the problems we have to deal with again and not being there again is really keeping me from having the Christmas Spirit. I'm trying hoping listening to Christmas music and watching Christmas shows will help, but hasn't. Haven't done any Christmas decorating including brought out the tree usually have on the table in front of our chairs. Can only hope get out of this slump before is too late.
