You know what really bugs me about cancer? The amount of time it sucks up. I'm sure I've whined about this before, but with Christmas a few days away, wow, it's really right in my face. When I sat around sick this weekend, I thought about things I'd like to sew for gifts. I thought about the presents already purchased that never made it to the post office. Christmas cards? What WHAT? Yeah, those didn't get done either. I even scrambled to pull together a little birthday party for Reese.
I don't know, I'm just feeling like a big flake today. It's going to be after-Christmas gifts again this year. I wish I could get it together.
I was thinking about things we haven't done this season, like decorating cookies, or even decorating a tree.
But you know what? We got to visit with my parents and had a great dinner together. We took time to visit friends who are in town that we've missed so much. Eric, the kids, and I wandered around the mall looking at decorations.
I suppose it continues to be about balance and priorities. And knowing what I can and can't do. It's hard though.
Oh well. The gifts will get mailed, eventually. We can make cookies and frost them any old time. Our family is going to be together, and we're thankful for the blessings we have. And I'm going to try not to be too hard on myself.
