Long past couple weeks. I was a little stressed from a lot of different corners.

Christmas was a really nice break from that besides one really rough night it was a good trip back east seeing family. We had some good food I got some knitting done and I unwound from a lot of net stuff. It was good seeing all my aunts.

Aunt Kathy really looked haggard though. She's been taking too much on herself with her family. We're all annoyed at Uncle Colin for not being a little more helpful.

So has Aunt Nora though as she has been struggling with helping Grandma care for Grandpa. Grandpa has seriously degraded mentally. He's still smart and his personality is in there, when he saw my Dad and I out shoveling up from the snow storm he tried to go out and help. But the alzheimer's dementia has made it hard for him to focus and keep things straight. He keeps worrying that the home he has lived in for 15 years isn't his home and he's never sure where he is. Its the worst at night. He's been trying to stop eating but he forgets he wants to stop eating. He mentions once in a while, when he's along with on or two of us how he'd like to just go to sleep and not wake up now. After our big night of carols, with all the family together for food and singing he said that he'd like to not wake up the next day because it was such a good night. I didn't know what to say to that so I just said sweet dreams. He's said it before so it wasn't a shock.

Grandma and Mom sparred a bit over a few things as well. Our last night was rough in a lot of ways Grandpa was really confused. Grandma was upset because of some thoughtless things we had said to her. Mom had a few too many glasses of wine and boom... but that was the only bad night.

I still had a good time though. It was good seeing my family and my cousins and everyone. It just had some hard parts. But I had fun seeing my cousins. We all got along and there wasn't any huge surprises. We all know how Grandpa is.

Travel home was easier then expected. The huge snow storm hit two days before we had to fly out and it caused congestion and terrible traffic getting to the airport but our flight got out just fine.

I am happy to be home though with Momo who was being dog sat by Avalon and Justin. She ran away once and was found back on our door step. She was overjoyed to see all of us. She's been acting like our shadow since then. She's currently curled at my feet.

Today though was excellent we've all been cooking here at Casa de Corgi. I made an amazing crusty Italian loaf with sesame seeds. Mom made linzer torts and manchigo crackers and we all made spanikopita. The house is clean and it feels comfortable here so its all okay. going to give momo a bath soon heh.
