A much needed rest

Hey there! I was in dire need of some rest from everything.  So, I haven't been posting, or picking up much time at work and have just been focusing on my family.  Since my last post much has happened.  I lost my mother in law to cancer.  That has got to be one of the most devastating, aggressive diseases out there.  This is the second family member I have watched be taken by this disease and no matter how often you experience it, nothing quite prepares you for the end.
I had a birthday, which in spite of what was going on, we still had an enjoyable dinner.  My husband seemed to enjoy doing something nice to get his mind off of things.  I was also the Matron of Honor at my sister's wedding, took a trip Down South with my husband(post coming soon)and enjoyed Thanksgiving with almost all of my family except for one brother (that's a first for us since everyone is so spread out.)
I wish I could say I read some great books and did some cleaning out of things or took a class, but the truth is I just did the mundane day to day activities and vegged out in front of the TV and took naps in the middle of the day, which is great, by the way.  I think I have had my fill for the most part and am ready for some new activities, which means....New Posts!

So, enough about me...what have you all been up to?

  1. Sorry to hear about your loss, my prayers go out to you and your husbands family, that has to be hard to deal with the loss of a parent. Weddings are sooo special, I was also in a wedding in October and it was magical. I am taking my son to see the Mandela movie on 12/26, I cant wait to see my favorite actors play one of my favorite people, Mandela. I am looking forward to the new year and am counting my blessings that I made it through the year. I recently found out I have a fibroid so will have to have surgery for that. It seems like fibroids are all over the place night now, I now Cynthia from Housewives of ATL just went thru it and 2 family members recently had to have surgery also. Luckily I found it and can have it taken care of. I just got back from Jamaica in November and literally had the time of my life...again,lol. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year!!
    Thanks for posting!! CK
