Is it really 2010?

I can't believe how quickly the holidays went by! Of course having a cold and sinus infection sort of put me out of action for a couple of days. Thankfully I caught the sinus infection early and the antibiotics seem to be kicking its butt. I'm trying to be patient with myself which is why my Christmas decorations are still up. Hopefully I'll at least get the tree down tonight. I enjoy the lights, so waiting doesn't really bother me.

The big news of the weekend is that Rowan is now mobile. He's moving fast, eating out of the dog bowl and tearing pages from books. Kind of glad he held off until he got home as our house is not baby proof. I'm hoping to get to see him at the end of January if I can find a reasonable air fare.

I also need to get out to see my dad again. A family friend he's known since I was a baby died this weekend. At 92, there are so few people left who share his memories that losing one more is very hard. Getting old is definitely not for the weak.

Tomorrow I'm off to Phoenix for a couple of days. My best friend from college is coming in for a conference so we'll try to catch a few hours together at least. Beats me traveling to Omaha, NE. The last time I was there we were up at 2 AM keeping track of tornado movements.

I hope you all had good holidays and are ready for whatever 2010 throws at us.

Happy New Year!

The holidays did fly by and the sinus infection didn't help. I have two elderly aunts that have lost all of their siblings except each other. I watch them anxiously.......

Being 92 is tough enough. Losing your friends/family just makes it harder.

A sinus infection and a baby just learning how to walk. Wahooo! You know how to get the most out of a holiday, don't you? So glad you are feeling better. And prayers for your dad. You are such a good daughter!

Enjoy the trip to visit your dad. When you come back home, you'll like the climate even better.
