Recently, I have had to attend a funeral of a friend (62 years old) who had a heart attack. A week later, my brother-in-law passed. By the time they realized he had cancer... he passed 3 weeks later. Found out my mother-in-law has about 8 weeks left to live... she is 91 so a long blessed life to her. You can imagine how my life is.
Between Christmas shopping, having a huge dinner here and going for dinners at the families, it has been a hectic month. Company keeps coming and that is OK... I love that. Especially when they bring all the children. Been walking the neighbours dog for 2+ hours a day.... trying to keep sane... lol.
So if I miss extra time on here... hope you understand. We have the coldest time of the year now.... and between walking, cooking ... taking care of Oscar and hubby.... my days are full.
Have a very happy new year... I wish you all the best.
Whoa, Julianna, you sure have been in the wars...you're one tough hombre! Sorry to hear about what you've been going through. I'm constantly in awe of what our Forum members do in their day-to-day lives and the challenges they face. I've always held you in high regard & I'm sure many others do, too. I wish there is some way I could help. I hope you are going OK and that things will improve a little for you soon (although I know that losing loved ones is not really an 'improveable' situation). XXOXX
One of my students died a couple of months ago. He was 8 years old. I only met him once (in Term 2) because he was too sick to come to school, on an oxygen machine and another machine to drain stomach fluid, etc. That funeral was tough enough, without it being a relative/close friend. So I really empathise with you.

So sorry to hear about your recent losses. I agree with Biteybird - you are one tough hombre! I hope 2018 is a better year for you. I cant believe your temperatures - I whinge and moan when we get to -7 Celsius in winter. Cant imagine how cold it must feel where you live. Sending hugs your way
