So, In a flash Christmas is over. Despite the fact that I think this was the worst year of my life, the last four days have been some of the greatest I have ever had. The 24th was spent with family opening gifts, watching the children joyously shredding wrapping paper and nearly becoming orgasmic at the contents. Christmas morning I was up around 3:30 nagging my bed mate to awaken as well so that we could allow our child to open gifts. The coffee was delicious, the air was cool yet warming up, clothes were comfortable. Everyone enjoyed everything. Later was spent among friends and family. Good food, good company. More gifts. Turned in early on my recliner wrapped in what could possibly be the fuzziest most comfortable blanket known to man. Drifted off to the sounds of new video games and wind. The next morning we were all kissed with blizzard like snowfall as we sat together as a family enjoying each other, the atmosphere of the winter solstice, and just for a moment forgetting about the looming shadow to be cast over the ext year of our lives.

With any luck, next Christmas will be upon us in no time.
