I'm a bit of a late comer to the party, but it's helped reading this thread, I don't feel like the only one not having a wonderful cheery Christmas
We lost my husband's younger sister to cancer last November and his older sister just this last February to kidney failure among many other health
problems. When a person passes the shock and pain are so strong at first, but it's not until times like the holidays that it really, truly sinks in
that that person is permanently, absolutely gone forever.
It's just been a bummer season. One of my jobs is as a church secretary. No, I'm not religious, and after seeing the inside of the churchworld,
I'm even less of a believer than before I started there. Anyway, the financial situation has reached the breaking point to where the options are
either close the doors or merge with another church. The negativity from some people regarding the situation is almost too much to handle. I'm
looking for another job, but no success yet. But I keep looking.
The front brakes went out on my car and the shop discovered that my fuel lines were leaking. Combined, that was over $500 to fix. I absolutely did
not want to part with the money, but a new car is out of the budget, so Santa brought my car lots of goodies this year, I guess.
Hubby has the yard all decorated and the tree up, but I just don't care, to be honest. If I could, I'd pack it all back up and say forget it. I got
him a present before all the car crap started and that's going to be about it this year.
Thanks for listening, and to all of the previous posters, I do understand how you feel, and my thoughts are with you.
