It has been a rough few days for us. It is always a challenging time of year for us because we suffered two of our greatest losses in this month in years past. The sadness was elevated with the horror of Sandy Hook, and our inability to focus on anything else sent us both into a funk.
Then it was compounded by learning that Mr. Tattered will will be having a total hip replacement in early April, and my continuing back and foot problems have gotten the better of me. I finally had x-rays done and I’ve got a bone spur on the heel of my foot, and 2 compression fractures in my spine (from the rafting accident in March.) Good grief! I hadn’t expected either one of us to fall apart quite so soon!
The cumulative effect was that I decided to pout in private and wait to blog until I felt like I had something uplifting to offer.
It’s taken awhile, but I’m finally feeling more like myself.
Today I finally got the last of my Christmas decorating done. I’ve NEVER been so slow before! Now that it’s done, I can hardly believe I was such a slug. I LOVE how festive the house looks, and I suspect if I had forced myself to do it sooner, my funk wouldn’t have lasted so long!
So today I’ll take you on a little tour… It’s not EVERYTHING, but a nice sampling of Christmas at our house!
