I'm Blessed~

Watching all the awful things my flisters and family have been dealing with lately makes me realize, even more, how blessed I am. Yes, I work hard and try to be a pretty good person, but I'm extremely lucky, I know.

I feel for all of you dealing with so many things, loss, ill health, frustrations and financial crisis. It *is* even harder this time of year to deal with life's challenges. I wish I could do more than send virtual hugs.

In the meantime, the three sisters are happy to be sitting together in Clatskanie at Humps Restaurant, all blogging with the free WiFi. Charlie and I are giving Sue a used laptop for Christmas, so she can use one for her writing and blogging. We had a nice drive here, a nice lunch, and now we're just having a little coffee.

Later we're going to go to the almighty Walmart for some last-minute holiday shopping (omg). We had planned to take Shari to the Grotto for the Festival of Lights and to celebrate her b-day, but we haven't been able to reach her.

It's hard to believe I don't have to go to work for a couple weeks. I have much fanfic to write, but other than social obligations and a couple little projects I need to monitor for work, I'm at my leisure. It's a weird feeling!

We ARE really blessed -- as we acknowledge all the time. But you're VERY generous all year round -- and I'm so proud of you for that. I really am...

Today was a BLAST, I thought! I'm so damn glad that Sue likes the laptop. I can't wait to have it totally ready (new battery and all) for her to take home... I love going to Hump's. It's interesting how much fun it is to sit in the bar. I can't imagine actually drinking there, but who knows? The drive was BEAUTIFUL, I have to say. We've been pretty blessed by the nice weather this year!

I don't know what's up with Shari. Maybe she doesn't want to go to The Grotto (???). Or maybe she's not at that anxious to see us for some reason. Who knows? All we can do is our best, I guess.

Shopping will be fun (it almost always is), tons of people, or no!

And I know you'll do lots of fic writing soon! Go YOU.

Yeah, time off is weird, isn't it???

I took a few extra days off this year for a three-week break. I'm not going back to work until the new year. And I am enjoying every minute of it, even some of the annoying and frustrating parts.

It takes me a week just to get into vacation mode. Still not totally relaxed with all the manic energy this time of year, so I'm actually looking forward to the day AFTER Christmas.

But, like you, I count my blessings every day.

Enjoy your time off and I wish you and yours a safe and happy holidays!

*Hugs*

Very nice of you to give Sue the laptop. I'm sure she will grow to love it.

I'm glad to hear that you have a couple of weeks off . . . enjoy your time of freedom.

Aaah! Virtual hugs can be so good!!
Your good vibes, your gratitude, all of it warms my heart and gives it hope. There is so much emphasis on the "wrongness" of our earth that a post like yours keeps me going.

I love you

I'm happy that you are doing alright.

Good that you had a good time with your sisters. Happy Holidays!
