We had such a good Christmas with Telfer's family. This is Cate opening one of her presents from my parents. It was a lot of people (9!) in our small apartment but it didn't feel like too much. We had brunch and opened presents and then met some of Tracie's family at a restaurant for dinner. A New York kind of Christmas.
After Christmas, everyone left, and all three of us got colds. Cate's has been especially bad, the sound of her cough would break your heart. I took down the tree and all the rest of the decorations. It's really cold. Telfer's working a lot. In short, I don't much like the first half of January. Is that depressing? I think I am coming out of the blahs a little bit though. Today I talked to my mom, mailed several packages, wrote ten thank you notes, made a couple of needed phone calls and finished organizing closets and drawers. Tomorrow I might even pull out my label maker. On the rebound.
