And just like that – another Christmas has come and gone.
It’s kinda crazy how quickly the “big event” always flies by, isn’t it?? The gifts have been exchanged and opened…the holiday dinner (or dinners!) have been enjoyed…and now it’s time to catch our breath and let the dust – or is it glitter? – settle before those New Year celebrations begin!!
Our own festivities actually had somewhat of a rough start; the fur-baby we adopted only a couple of weeks ago (and who’d been adjusting so well to her new home with us) suddenly became very ill…and we had to make an emergency trip to the ferret vet on Friday. It turns out that our sweet “Fancy” not only has adrenal gland disease, but also insulinoma. Not exactly good news…and especially heartbreaking at this time of year. 😞
Thankfully, with medication and some extra TLC, “Fancy” already seems to be getting back on her feet; so our holiday plans – a dessert buffet chez Faulkner on Christmas Eve, and that all-important Christmas Day dinner hosted by friends (yay! no cooking!) – went off without any more hitches. Now I’m looking forward to hearing a bit about your holiday, dear readers…if you can find a moment to share!!
