No Tears

This has been such a very long, long, long holiday season. We don’t do much of anything for New Years, so in effect I am done for the year.

I will miss the things I love that the holidays bring, like Maegan. Maegan comes out for every Christmas and I don’t know if it would feel the same without her. I suppose that there will be a time when for whatever the reason might be we won’t have the pleasure of her company. That time hasn’t come yet and we will deal with it when it does. This Christmas we had another nice visit and I am going to miss her terribly. I am sure she misses us as well, but her real life beckons and I suppose it is time for her coach to turn into a pumpkin.

She flies out at 7:00AM tomorrow and that means we will be leaving here at around 5:00AM. The flight will get her home at a decent time, before the crazy drunks hit the streets of Toronto. I don’t think she has anything planned for tomorrow night other than just enjoying her home and the peace and quiet. Coincidentally, that is exactly the same plan that Louise and I have.

I will miss the music of the holidays too. I know there are a lot of people who think that one day of Christmas music is one day too much, but not me. I can (and do) listen to my favourite Christmas songs all year long. They are just too enjoyable for only one month of the year.

The cookies and candy will be missed as well, but this year I either have to lose some serious weight or start to plan for an early funeral. I don’t really mind the idea of death, but there are a few things that I would like to get done first. I’d like to see Hurricane and Tornado grow into young men. I’m not sure the world will be able to handle them, but there won’t be a dull moment. I plan on doing some wood working that I can be proud of this year. Wait, this is turning into a New Years blog and I don’t want that.

Let’s just say that I am looking forward to spring. Yes, I have had it with winter and snow.

I have eaten too much today. I have played with the boys too much today. I haven’t rested near enough today and it looks like I won’t get enough sleep tonight.

I’m going to miss Maegan and I know that the nephews will too.

No tears, no tears…
