Well, remember when I wondered?

On that last post...just a few hours ago...I wondered what the new year would bring?

Well, for us it came in with craziness. My father in law passed away this morning. He woke up my mother in law and told her he didn't feel well and thought they should head to the hospital. Then he passed away quietly in his recliner while she was getting dressed to take him.

I will not reveal over the internet our plans for travel, etc.

Just realize my blog break will be longer (except I've pre-scheduled the Bible Study blog already); and there is no way that I can catch up on all of yours AND leave comments when I do get back to blogging next week. So, I'll catch up with you later. When my crazy life calms down.
