Our Christmas day!

I can truly say that this Christmas wa our best ever! We had a fantastic time. We had15 people over for Christmas and everyone had a wonderful time. I couldn’t help but wonder if this would be the last time everyone would be together for Christmas, it made me sad to think of that as a possibility, but I didn’t dwell on it. It was a celebration of note this year, we celebrated surviving the worst year of our lives, on all fronts. I look at everyone and marvel, we are ok, we made it through the tragedy and heartache, we might not be in one piece anymore, but we survived, and that’s all that counts.

We can now only look forward, the worst that could happen happened, now I’m looking forward with excitement and a bit of nervousness, but mostly excitement. I have absolutely no expectation for 2010, just a sense of excitement, if that makes any sense at all!

I wish everyone a very happy 2010 and wish you all everything that is beautiful!




Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas and may the next year be filled with joy and happiness!


 I have decided not to reflect on this past year, I think it speaks for itself. We are all looking forward to next year, not for any specific reason other than to put 2009 behind us and start over. So with that, I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas  and a blessed year! Cheers!



It’s been a hectic few weeks! Cassey is doing so well, her stitches came out and the hair is growing back on her belly, she’s very thin now, looks a bit like a Whippet from the side, but she’s alive and that’s the most important thing. I have not let her go out into the garden, I’m still a bit paranoid about her wound (or what used to be her wound), the vet had to cut so much dead skin off that he had to pull the 2 halves together very tightly to stitch her up, so we’ll see how that all goes. Besides, I’m terrified she slices herself open again!

I can’t wait to have 2009 behind me, not because I think 2010 will be a better year, I just want to know that 2009 is over. It’s ending on a good note for which I am very thankful. Although my Dad is not out of the woods yet, he’s at least alive and returning to his normal self. We have  alot to look froward to next year, like Elize said, “It feels like a new beginning.” So lets see where it will take us.
