I is one sad panda

Usually at this time of year I'm feeling sort of down because it's the holidays. I'm happy to report that this isn't the case this year. I've got enough other things to be unhappy about that it's overshadowing the seasonal gloom and doom. I can't believe that it's almost Thanksgiving. It seems that everything has snuck up on me this year. That's not really unusual though. Whenever the pain starts becoming a real problem, I tend to go into a moment by moment, day by day sort of mode. You stop thinking about the future or making plans. Instead, what's important is the moment and hoping that you can just get past it.

As for thanksgiving, it looks like it's going to be pretty much the same as in previous years. The family is going to gather at my grandmother's place where my sisters will be doing the cooking. It's a bit of a swap off for Connie and Jeff who will be spending thanksgiving with our family and then they'll be going to his parents place for Christmas. Oh, I should also mention that Connie has another bun in the oven. I just found out yesterday and if everything goes according to schedule, she should pop out another rugrat sometime in July. I knew she wanted more kids but I was a little surprised at how quickly she's getting back in the saddle, so to speak. Maddie was an absolute terror when she was an infant as far as fussing, crying and screaming went. The experience just about drove Connie insane. It can't be any easier to go through something like that again but with a toddler as well. She's even told my mom that she wants something like 4 kids overall. I should send her that motivational poster about a vagina not being a clown car.

It's funny really. I never saw Connie as being all that maternal growing up. I could see her running her own company or being secretary of state even, but I never saw the whole family thing as being so integral. She seems happy though and I guess that's the most important thing.

Looks like she popped up a new picture on the Maddie blog:
