Twelfth Night already! Happy New Year!
What a start to the year it’s been….we had a happy Christmas and celebrated our tenth anniversary. Ten years. Amazing, wonderful, sad, crazy, loving, depressing, happy, through-sickness-and-health, ten years.
Immediately on our return home, however, one of our cats died. Our favorite, oldest cat – the most intelligent, bossy, dignified feline I’ve ever met. We rescued him a year after we were married, and he’d become my husband’s inseparable companion. A little like our oldest child….and he died in my husband’s arms. He had good life with us, but we miss him dearly already. We have two other cats still, but no one will ever be quite able to take his place.
And now I’m down with the flu. Nothing worth blogging about — for once it’s a nice normal illness that anybody might have and that I know will resolve in a short span of time. It’s rather nice to have something normal wrong with me! So much easier to explain to other people!
I’ll take both good and bad this year…to remember my blessings even while struggling on with the ongoing problems of infertility, of endometriosis, of doctors, and of course, of my dissertation.
