It was a very quiet Christmas this year. I got the tree and the ornaments out of the loft, looked at the boxes for a week, and decided not to put them up after all. We spent the day with Phil’s grandparents, who are 99 and 95 and still live by themselves in their own little house, and made a turkey Christmas dinner for them. They’re adorable. And that is all there was.
My new year’s resolution is to be in a much better position in 2012, and make up for this holiday. I want family and a tree and presents and good cheer.
