I have gotten a call from my dad this afternoon and we are indeed getting together on Tuesday for our Christmas.  I wonder what my dad will bring up in conversation like he did before hanging up with me.  He talked about my weight again!  It is so discouraging and demeaning to me.  He did this to my mother while they were married and now, he is doing it to me!  I have kept my end of the bargain and have not called Dad since he got back from PA. It feels really good not calling my dad and now when he calls me, he can call me and be pleasant.  Not calling my dad is kind of hard, but I have been able to curb my calls for now.  We will have to wait and see what Tuesday’s “Christmas” visit will bring since it is not here yet.

Where Did Winter Go?

My absence online has been what it is for good reason.  So much has happened since the week of Thanksgiving that my diary entries have been very few for the month of November and December this year.  It has nothing to do with the fact that I have nothing to share or write about on a daily basis, but it does have something to do with my feelings during this time of year.  Winter is one season where I have my down time.  I do not like winter although this weekend. Has proven to be springtime type of weather.  I do not think we are going to have snow for Christmas this year with all this mild wintry weather we have been having.  It has been pretty warm these days.  I do hope we have some snow for Christmas this year.Where
