Well it hasn’t been much of a holiday for me, but that doesn’t mean it’s been bad. There were moments where I wasn’t sure I’d survive two jobs, on 5 hours of sleep. There were moments where I was pretty sure Nic was gonna kill me for leaving her stuck at home by herself all the time. I pretty much survived by going emotionally blank and just focusing on the job(s) that needed to be done, so as a result, I’ve sorta been a jerk to everyone.
But there were also moments that were amazing. Getting our Certificate of Occupancy from the city, two days before our first service at the new campus. Seeing dozens of volunteers pull together to make something like that happen. Learning new things, and meeting new people.
My grandma died last week. I don’t think I can get home for the funeral, even though I really want to. I’d just be so terrified that as soon as I got home Nic would go into labor. I’m not really good at dealing with death — I kinda don’t know what to do with it. But I know grandma is in a better place, and that she’s not in any pain anymore, so I have some peace about that. And to be honest, I haven’t let myself think about it too much — there’s been too much work to do.
So I get a day and a half of holidays. Today and tomorrow morning I have off, and then it’s back to work. I have some e-mails to write, and some people to talk to, cause I’ve pretty much ignored everyone for the past couple weeks. And Nic and I have some serious cuddling to do, cause any minute now our family is gonna get bigger!
Until then, you’ll have to accept best wishes from just the two of us. Merry Christmas, dear readers! We hope you all have a wonderful day with the people you love.
