I just found out that I have breast cancer. I fully expect DD and DSonIL to offer not to go to his family for Christmas. No. No, because:
1. It is his mother's turn. (And I love her like a sister and do not want to disappoint her. We call each "Sister Mothers.")
2. I want my turn, next year, when I am well enough to celebrate.
3. Please believe me when I say it is not my last anything.

I will be delighted if they do not offer.



We need a little heart emoticon.

Maybe............she doesn't know how she'll be feeling and even though people can come and bring in food and take care of everything, there is still a lot of pressure we feel to provide a holiday experience. And it's not her last anything, as she says!

Gmatoy, the kids are worried, too. Do you see them enough so they can see with their eyes how you are doing without the pressure of the holidays?

Our son lives a 4 minute drive away; his daughter came over today and spent several hours. Our daughter lives 30 miles away (what used to be a 35 minute drive away is now more than an hour). I think that part of the not wanting to change things is on the years when DD and DSIL go to Chicago, we just do two Christmases. One on the day with DS and his family and then DS and his family come back for another one when DD and DSIL can come. So, not such a big deal to me.

One bright note, a good friend, her DH and her daughter came over tonight and they made me laugh so hard. It hurt because of the port, but was worth it!

Three aprons cut out and ready to be sewn. Fabric and patterns located to do lounging pants for DD and DGD. Will get them cut out tomorrow.
