I just got a phone call from my aunt in law. She's like a mother in law. She has been battling breast cancer all year. She's clear of that but the cancer has moved to her brain. So basically we talked today to learn she's got 6 months to a year left.:really sad::really sad::sad::sad:
I'm so VERY sorry, Megan *hugs* :(

Oh Megan. So sorry to hear this. There, but for the grace of God, goes I. I just said to my hubby, last year this time, no one was certain I would be here this Christmas. There is no rhyme or reason for some things in life.
HUGS, Kara

I have almost finished eating all of the white chocolate covered bits and bites my friend Kimberly brought over today as a Christmas gift. :(:D

My little cousin Ashley, turned seventeen two weeks ago, yesterday she was diagnosed with bulimia because I caught her purging on Thanksgiving, she physically attacked me and said if the clinic made her fat like me, she'd kill herself.

Mama's best friend Tricia, who I've called Other Mother since I was around five, has lung and liver cancer. I may have to pray to someone higher for the first time in a long time because Ma just can't handle any more death at the moment.


Being sad is making me sad.

I don't even know how to explain what is making me sad except to say that with family like mine, there is absolutely NO chance of enjoying the holidays.

My situation is dire to begin with and I know that Christmas has nothing to do with money, presents, or gifts but I can't help to feel bad about not even being able to afford to send out more than a few Christmas cards. Along with that the holidays have become distasteful to me since my Mother died last year. Spending the holidays with family who do not treat you like family makes matters ten times worse. I feel like scrooge. I feel like I just want to slink down under my blankets on December 24th and sleep until January 2nd. If it were possible, I would do just that.

Thank you all very much. Cancer sucks. I cried a lot yesterday. You really realize how much you love someone when you know their time is limited. We live 100 miles apart and will be going down to see her a lot more. I am just so sad. She kind of took over the role of my mother in law when hubs mom died.

I've had an overall sad weekend. Yesterday was 7 months since my momma passed away... and today it's been 9 years since I lost my husband Kerry to cancer. I've moved on, and recently gotten re-married, but it still hurts on certain anniversaries.

I am sorry to hear about your loved one and substitute mother-in-law having terminal cancer. Cancer is one of the great foes a lot of us will fight in our short lifespans - either our own cancer or a close relative's.

You have also been thru a lot lately with both your boys and this too has got to be adding on your stress level and burden. I will share with you what some advice my mom did with her adult children. When you have your own kids, one of the great lessons in life you can teach them is how to deal with our own and other's mortality. This is something that children have a lot of trouble with and showing them how to talk to a person that you know you will lose (treat them like they are precious, don't avoid them) is what they need to see and hear. Being sad and crying is okay, but letting the kids know how to deal with grief as children (it depends on their age and maturity) is a mother and father's difficult but important task.

Thank you. We told Max that she's not going to be around for a long time. He cried in our arms for a good half hour. We are not going to shy away from her. We watched hubby's mom drift away a few years ago. She had stroke issues related to her diabetes and she kept getting worse as time went on. We already have plans to see aunt in law a week from today. We usually try to get together whenever we have to see Max's specialists down in Sacramento. (That's quite often with Max's recent surgery issues.. and now we're planning another one early 2012) Alex is too young to get what's going on. He just gets nervous when we are crying about her illness.

I have the proverbial laundry list going on right now.

The IRS screwed up my refund and it'll be another 8-12 weeks before I'll see it. I was really counting on that for my move out money (depost, furniture) but I can't do that any way til the divorce is finalized, which brings me to...

My divorce not being finalized til the early part of next month. If my soon to be ex had indeed sent off the paper work when she said she did instead of seating on it for weeks, it would have been done by now. I am just ready to close that book. I am tired of her shenanigans including...

Her screwing with the visitation agreement. Because she wanted to pull a power play, it'll be almost three weeks between multiple visits with me and my kiddos for this month.:(

It's almost over with but January and 2012 can't get here fast enough to suit me.

Christmas is making me sad. I've had 5 dreary Christmases in a row. Long story about finances and the economy, loss of family members, being alone on the holidays, friends who only seem to want to be friends when it is convenient for them, and how sad it is that the Christmas cards that I used to receive (which I relied on cheering me up at this time of year) have dwindled to practically nothing. Enough...time to go nibble on a Christmas cookie.

My friend feels so little self worth that she thinks she id going to find it in multiple random men. It is only a quick fix to a much deeper problem. She is a great girl and I wish she could see that.

I just talked to someone I regularly dog-sit for... one of the dogs (they're both Great Danes) has bone cancer and they don't know if he's going to make it to Christmas. Im supposed to be watching them right after Christmas, so she wanted me to know that depending on his health, they might not be going away.

I love these dogs so much. I've been taking care of them for years! And this one... he's just a big mush pie that loves to be loved. He's big and drooly and he likes to be in the middle of everything, but he just looks at you with his big goofy Dane head and dark brown eyes and huge hanging lips, with drool smears all over his face... and you fall in love. It just hurts knowing that he wont be around much longer. :(

My sister's ten year relationship has ended. My heart breaks for her, for my BIL and their kids.
