I guess that kind of says it all, doesn't it? 

I have work Mon, Tues and Wed this week and then I'm off until the 4th.  I look forward to this longish vacation all year.  There will be pajama days and some outings (I'd really like to go see Star Wars) and eating and relaxing and recharging of batteries. 

This will be a fairly busy week for me (and I know for most of y'all too).  I just wanted to take a moment before the holiday to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Channukah, Joyous Kwanzaa, Peaceful Solstice and just generally, Have a nice day.
Discombobulate: verb  To confuse or disconcert, upset, frustrate.Discombobulated:  adv.  (see above)
Today I am feeling discombobulated.  No real reason.  I had a good night's sleep with no waking up at 2 and not falling back to sleep.  I think part of it is feeling so helpless.  Peter Kevin is one of 7 siblings.   He has 5 sisters and a brother-all mostly older.
4 of the 7 are fighting some form of cancer (which both of his parents had. genetics is real, yo)  Last night he found out (well, had his suspicions confirmed) that 3 of his siblings are actively fighting for their lives.  He is so sad and feeling so helpless that it makes me feel helpless because I cannot help him.  All I can do is be there.  And I am a Helper gosh darnit.  I can't stand to not help.  This reality has been in the background for a long time but now it's pushing its way forward and forcing us to confront our (and everyone else's) mortality.  
This is not conducive to a house filled with Christmas …
