We had a great Christmas. Last year we spent our Christmas in the ER for Otis’ asthma and it felt amazing and lucky to wake up Christmas morning in our home – healthy. Now that the holidays are behind us the glow and anticipation is sadly also gone. We’ll have my birthday to celebrate and maybe a few snowstorms to enjoy to get us through the dull cold of winter. With hibernation comes the winter weight as well. Stu and I justify this unfortunate happening by saying we need this extra weight to keep warm in our cold house on freezing winter days and nights. Ha, maybe but spring is right around the corner.
