Sunday Scribblings

Holiday Memories

There are a ton of memories from the holidays that I could share....a lot of heart warming stories of family and full bellies....

But this year, my memory of the holidays will be different.....this year, I will have to remember that not only is it the day of the Birth of Christ.....but it is also the day of death of my sister.

December 25th is changed forever for me now. I will always have great memories and good times on Christmas Day....but they will be a little more bittersweet now...


I miss you so much everyday...and because we hadn't seen each other in so long before you passed, I can almost imagine that you're still just in North Bay, doing your thing, living your life. But then I snap back to reality and remember that I will never, ever answer the phone again and hear you answering back, "Hey, Brat!".

I hope that you have a great Christmas this year....the best you ever had. I will be thinking about you all day...and I will visit you and Dad at the cemetary at some point just to say hi...I know you're not really there but it gives me a place to go in private and talk to "nothing". I know you're both there listening and that brings me more comfort than you know.

Wherever you are.....Merry Christmas big sister....we all love and miss you so very much.

Love, Brat.

I'm ready

I finished all my Christmas shopping in TWO days this year! It sucked, but it's done. Now, on with the holiday, the sooner, the better. I like Christmas but hate the seems like everything has to be done NOW...there is no time to breathe!

In other news, I'm 11 weeks and 2 days pregnant now...just a short 5 days from the 2nd Trimester already! WOO! It's gone by fairly quickly too...thank God for that!

I totally don't have much else to say....sadly, I'm boring these days. :(

I put it out there before, if you want to know something, leave me a comment....I'd be happy to answer/comment about it if it gives me something to write about!! Hopefully, I'll be more interesting after the holidays otherwise!

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate....Happy Whatever-You-Celebrate to those of you who don't!

10 Weeks

WOW! I'm 10 weeks pregnant already! I can't beleive how quickly time is going....definitely not like with my own where I felt like it was taking forever!

Everything seems to be going well with baby...I'm doing better and not quite as sick anymore. I'm VERY happy about that...

I don't have a whole lot more to write I'm going to call out to you again, anything you want to know/hear about from me, giver! Give me some ideas!!

Today marks the beginning of the 12 days of Christmas....and I only know this because it is my birthday...I'm 28....and I feel old.
