Thanksgiving was a mild and pleasant day. We enjoyed our time at the beach and hanging out with family as always. Art's Mom went into the hospital this week after breaking her back. We didn't find this out until after the holiday. Karyn was able to go out to Tuscon to assess and help as needed. Mom was moved to a rehab hospital for her recovery. She was not eating well and they seemed to be having a tough time since arriving in October.
As soon as I got home from the funeral we headed down to Connecticut for Christmas. It was a quick but fun trip. Zeb made some great holiday 'tinis and we had a good time catching up and enjoying the day.
We came home for New Year's. We had some friends over and watched the hockey game. We were all sagging on the couch by ten pm but it was fun none the less.
The holidays were strange this year. My Grandfather passed away and a friend of mine from high school committed suicide the same week.
In January Art headed down to Tucson to see how things were with his folks. Things were really not good with Mom. She was in and out of the emergency room and she was not making progress in rehab so they were saying she couldn't stay.
