"And then

NTE fell asleep for a thousand years. And there was much happiness and rejoicing all through the land."

Which is a pretty good alternative to my actual life right now, so if there are any positions available in fairy tale land, please be sure to let me know.

Also... is anybody there? Did I chase you all away with all my whining & convoluted explanations (which would suck. For two reasons: 1) I like you all & 2) I'm not all that likely to stop venting here.) Or is everybody all caught up in the Christmas?

The Christmas seems to presently be evading us here at Chez NTE, given the heaviness of recent events/news, it's hard to be light and fluffy. I literally swore when a certain Christmas carol came on the radio yesterday - it felt so out of place to me it might has well have been June 29th.

My aunt is steadily improving, thank all that is holy. She's awake now, but we're still not certain what the issues really are. She's still very confused, but knew her sister enough to stick her tongue out at her, so she's starting to resemble her old self, a little, at least.

My Nana's biopsy results are due in tomorrow, but the doctor is pretty sure it's throat cancer. "Highly treatable, and usually curable" is a direct quote, but, somehow, the C word is so overwhelming that it's hard to see beyond it, just now.

We did have LilGirl today, though, and even though I was not in a place physically to be caring for her, I said screw it, because she cheers me up so much. It's nice to laugh at somebody giving a kissing parade, in the midst of all this crappola.

Also? For The Christmas?

I would like her coat, only with the furry part on the inside, because it is so freaking cute and snugly, I almost made her wear it around the house all day.

I'm coming out of lurking mode to let you know that I read your blog regularly... I just don't always comment.

I'm sending you hugs, prayers and thoughts!

[delurk]I also read you regularly -- and have linked you at my place, hope that's ok :) -- but have never commented before.

I dig your blog, thanks for doing all the work it takes. I'm chronically ill, too, so I know that even when it's fun, it takes work.

My very best wishes to you and yours.[/delurk]

Misty Dawn - Thanks! I don't mind the lurkers, honestly I'm usually one myself. But it's good to hear I didn't vent you all away. I hope things get better for you soon, as well.

Janice - Thanks. I'm just going to go ahead and say that men suck, see if that doesn't make you feel a little bit better. Again you = not stupid.

Jen - Welcome! Thanks for the well-wishes, the delurking, and the linking... I appreciate all of them. I'm going over to check out your site ASAP. :D
