This is a weird time of year for me. Lots of milestones pass, good and bad, so I've had to take a step back these last few weeks and focus on other things.

In short:
Dec. 23, 1999: My ex left me, and while I recovered quickly enough, that first week sucked rocks.
Late Dec, 2000: Shopping for a New Years dress with friends was the first time I noticed physical symptoms of the dramatic diagnoses that would be made in the following month.
Dec. 27, 2004: We moved into this house.
Jan. 8, 2005: My sister married the love of HER life.
Dec. 10, 2006: Married the love of my life
Dec. 9-12, 2011: Spent an incredible long weekend in Seattle to celebrate 5 years with aforemention love of my life.
Dec. 25, 2011: Max “gets” Christmas and Santa and we had an AMAZING Christmas this year!
Dec. 24-25, Every year: We have lots of local family. This makes for lots of driving over the holiday weekend.
Dec. 27, 2011-Jan. 4, 2012: Swamped busy, on deadline at work.
Dec. 30, 2011-Jan 2, 2012: Going away with friends for New Years weekend

So there's lots in my head these days, and so blogging falls a bit by the wayside. I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus, and I look forward to getting back in the writing saddle in 2012!

Thanks for sticking with me, and I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read my ramblings here.
