A late Merry Christmas to all!!

I'm quite happy that it's over with. Not that I don't love Christmas, I do, but this year was particularly difficult. I'm still trying to deal with my daughter's miscarriage and the subsequent issues that has brought into our life. She has gotten an apartment and will be moving out this week, another sad spot for me. It's not that I don't want her to move out and get some life under her belt, it just feels sad to have life changing so dramatically.

I've felt quite meloncholy this holiday season. I'm so sad for all those that don't understand that "Jesus is the reason for the season". I'm sad that so many are perishing because they refuse to accept the Good News of why Jesus came. I've also been missing relatives that are no longer with us and those that live far away.

I've also been reflecting on 2005. I'm hoping to do a year-end synopsis later in the week. It certainly has been an eventful year.

I still have Christmas knitting to do.

Two pumpkin hats, a baby bonnet, a pair of socks from yarn my mother-in-law handspun, and 2 more duplicate stitched stockings.

I haven't felt much like doing anything, but knitting. My stress is finally pouring out from the last couple of weeks. I've been struggling with my anxiety and depression, but I'm trying to keep on top of it. I've had trouble getting motivated to exercise and today I've really struggled with my appetite. I guess I could say I've binged a bit, but not much. I'm not going to put anything past my lips until 8:00 pm when I have my hershey kisses and my milk. Hopefully tomorrow will be an easier day.

We're hoping to go car and carpet shopping tomorrow. Actually, it's going to be a pretty busy weekend. We are going to the Amanas on Sunday for a Christmas get-together and then back for a baby shower for baby Z.

Next week, I have to start Christmas shopping. I really need to make a list!! I have so many things that I wanted to knit, I'm not sure if I'm going to get it all done.
