I'm sitting in my nice warm house, watching CNN, and crocheting snowflakes for a local craft show I'm participating in in a few weeks. It's chilly outside, and the rain is dreary and cold. :( As much as I don't want to admit it, I know winter's almost here. Boo. That means scraping my truck before work, bundling up to go outside, and freezing my tushy off. Boo!!!! Winter is so depressing anyway, and I always try and avoid the thought/images as much as possible.
The dreariness isn't helped by some news I received last night. My mom's older brother has been in the hospital for over a week, and we just found out about it. WTH? Yup, he's having heart issues, along with internal bleeding and diabetes. I can't believe my aunt never even bothered to call her own brother and sisters in law to let them know! I just hope that nothing happens to him, and he continues to recover. I just can't imagine it- my mom called his wife(my aunt) and my aunt 'had to' call my uncle to see if he wanted his sister to know what was going on. I just hope my brothers and I aren't like that when we 'grow up'. Yeah, I still consider us children, even though we're all over 30! :)
