What’s there to talk about?

I don’t know.

There’s so much.

And yet, nothing.

A lost friendship that breaks my heart.

Maybe not lost; Strained and distant may be more accurate.

But, I’m not mad.  I’m holding out hope.

A child recovering from being sick.

Even in that, there’s good.

He did such a great job at the doctor appointment and is doing so great with his medicine taking.

Both amazing and note worthy.

A Christmas card photo shoot that …

That went well … And not.

There was a dental appointment.

There is an appointment for another dental appointment.

I’m so tired of having dental appointments.

I inherited bad teeth from both parents.  Thanks.

Not bad like, discoloured or crooked.

Bad, like I need to really stay on top of them or they are prone to cavities.

Teachers/therapists/aides/nurses gifts have been purchased and mostly packaged; with personal thank you notes.

I do enjoy wrapping gifts and making them look pretty.

There is an adult only trip to look forward to.

It’s a good distraction from thinking about the kids being away for Christmas.

I will miss them.

A lot!

But it’s only fair that I share them.

There’s a Christmas cake that made its way to us from Jamaica.

That cake was wrapped in bubble wrap and carefully packaged in a hard cake pan.

That cake is love.

There is continued home decorating.

There is a crook neck.

(You know you’re getting old when just brushing your hair causes injury)

There are the simple joys of reindeer cookie baking and family game nights and Hallmark Christmas movies and kids holiday crafts and Peppermint everything.

 

What else is there to talk about?

I don’t know.

There’s so much.

And yet, nothing.
