Sunday Six

1. I woke up with a pounding headache this morning. I have myself to blame. I let my husband talk me into watching The Family Stone last night. It's one of our favorite Christmas movies but it always ends with me doing the ugly cry. That explains the headache. It also explains why my eyes are swollen to about five times their normal size, making me look as haggard as I feel. Awe. some.

2. Coffee is helping though. Coffee always helps.

3. I was in Arkansas most of last week. My mom's husband lost his battle with lung cancer and I went for the funeral and to spend a couple days with my mom. My sister and brother were there too and I think/hope we helped her get some things in order.

4. I stayed at my brother's house while there. There's nothing like being awakened first thing in the morning by a 3-year old singing "Let It Go" from Frozen. Trust me, it's angelic.

5. I am trying not to think of all that didn't get done last week in my absence. My to-do list is frightening. I see some late nights in my future. And coffee. Lots of coffee.

6. It's snowing here right now. Big, fluffy flakes. We haven't had a lot of snow this season so I'm happy to see it falling today. I really want to stay in bed and read and watch movies and nap, but that frightening list is taunting me. Happy Sunday, folks!

I watched The Family Stone last week myself. I've watched it every Christmas since it came out.

Sorry to hear about your mom's husband. I'm glad you could be with your mom during such a difficult time! I of course know it's hard to live far away, especially when there are big situations going on.

Enjoy the snow, and hope you have a restful Sabbath.

Sorry about your mom's husband. I know it's hard to be so far away at times like that. Hugs to you!

(PS - I've never seen The Family Stone. I'm very lame in the movie category)

My condolences your Mom. It is so helpful to have family to help get things settled.
I'm hoping we'll get some snow for Christmas at least. For some reason it doesn't feel like Christmas to me yet. I can't put my finger on it. Maybe some snow will help.
