It was an odd Thanksgiving this year. First, it was only the kidlet and I because Lauren and BJ decided to go hunting in Canada. Last I heard, they still haven't killed anything. Kidlet and I had Tacos on Thanksgiving day and I finally cooked the bird on Friday. It just didn't feel like Thanksgiving. I am thankful I have a job, my health (so to speak), kidlet is pretty healthy (if we could get rid of her cough), have a roof over our heads, and food in our bellies. What more could we ask for, right? I guess I've always been a bah humbug during holiday times. Even as a kid, I would hide in the closet and only come out under duress or when my Mom dragged me out by the arm thus feeling as if my shoulder had come undone. Christmas is the worst by far. I just don't like it. It's never been my dream Christmas where the family all comes together and actually enjoys each other's company. I don't talk to my younger sister at all. Older sister, I talk to her, but we aren't as close as we should be. My parents are gone. They weren't exactly the glue to hold us together when they were alive though. I didn't put up a tree last year and if I can get away with it, I won't this year. Fortunately, kidlet hasn't a clue as to which day Christmas falls on and if she doesn't receive a lot of presents, it doesn't bother her. I just want January to get here. NOW. Let's skip December altogether, okay?

Funeral services are tomorrow morning for my friend at 10am. Fortunately, those at work who would like to go are allowed to do so. I'm still bummed. Apparently he was shot in the back by a 55 year old man. In the back! Which to everyone means he was walking away from the altercation. We still don't understand why the man felt so threatened he had to shoot him in the back. Maybe we will never know.

I got word yesterday morning that a 25 yr old man that used to work with me was fatally shot early Saturday morning. Such a loss and waste of a good life. I feel for his mother for none should ever outlive their child. I hope they have the guy that shot him and he pays well for his misdeed. You will be missed, Billy!!!

Yes, it's true. I'm still alive! Not much going on lately. Working hard at work tryinng to fit three warehouses into one. Joy, Joy. Enjoying this fanstatic weather we've been having the past few weeks, although my toes are slightly cold right now. Kidlet is doing good. My mood is slowly improving. Just another day of life : ) Happy Saturday!
