Christmas is approaching. I've already had two family dinners and two more to go next week...as far as I know. xD;
I've been in a pretty good mood...though for some reason I get a little depressed. I guess it's because I'm not around everyone this year. There's some people that I wish I could be with during Christmas, but I know I'm needed here at home to be with my family.
For some of my watchers or friends that don't know, my mom is going through cancer. For the last few weeks up until we got out of college for the semester, she was doing really good. The day before we left college...she was up in the hospital due to dehydration. Apparently the doctors were so concerned that they also told her to do a different chemo. Her new chemo is making her extremely tired. It's hard to only spend a short amount of time with her, only to be told to leave her room and let her rest. My step dad has been so good to her. He's like her personal doctor, even though he's not a doctor.
Last night my mom wasn't feeling well..so my sister and I had to go eat dinner without my mom and step dad at my Aunt and Uncle's. It was fun..but not as fun as them being there too.
Today my sister and I went up to visit my Dad for his girlfriend's family Christmas dinner (well mid lunch I guess) . It was fun though I felt like her son and his wife were really curious about us since we only met them today.
It was good I guess..though I really just wanted to spend time with my Dad in all honesty..since I don't see him much. >w<;
It was good to go out tonight to see Canton's Christmas light show..and apparently a small parade too. xD; It was fun..a little chilly..and we finished it off with hot chocolate when we got home.
In all..I'm thankful and blessed to be with my family this holiday season. In all truth, I don't want anything for Christmas besides my family. I love them dearly.
Another thing that happened this week too. We are babysitting a friend's dog (who is our rat terrier's son) since his owner is with his son in the hospital. He had a wreck this past week and nearly lost his life. He's doing alright..just in a lot of pain and sore. It was on one of the chilliest days last week in the early morning around 3AM. He was drunk and had no sleep...so we guessed that he fell asleep while driving home after dropping off his friends. He didn't wear any seatbelt...and was thrown out of his car several feet from the crash sight. Luckily a friend of there's was on his way home and had recognized the truck. He then found Ben and called the ambulance. He would have froze or even died that night if it wasn't for him. So far, we've been told that he had to get one of his lungs removed, a broken cheek, and just a lot of soreness from the hit. Hopefully now he and his family will be more together now. This wasn't his first time going through a bad wreck.
For those who would like to keep them in their prayers, you may. Thank you. >w<;
Again, I'm sorry if this journal is depressing and long. I've had a lot of thoughts on my mind and would love to share it...since I'm the type of person who holds on to their feelings until I bust out crying.
I've heard from 2 of my friends who got their cards and one who hasn't gotten it yet..as far as I know. Hopefully it'll get to her soon. I'm glad that everyone liked their cards. In truth, they are the best cards that I've made so far and spent a lot of time on this month. I guess I'm getting better at time management and work skills with my art. >w<
Art wise..I've done more sketches. I'm doing daily sketches at night to make sure I don't get lazy and forget to draw everyday. >w<;
Hope you guys have a good Holiday, whatever you celebrate, and a Happy New Year. -KItax
