Out of Control

Sheesh... Sorry for the silence, been on an emotional rollercoaster and rather reluctant in writing anything. 
Christmas was great, I enjoyed, even though it broke the age old traditions. I've spent 23 Christmases at home, doing the same traditions, getting up early, watching Santa's hotline for kids, didn't get through as a kid, then The Snowman and the new addition, The Snowman and Snowdog. Then decorate the tree, the rest of the house, with gramps of course. Then lounge about until the evening, Jiminy Cricket's show and then presents, more lounging about and food and stuff, then fiddling with presents until I pass out. 
This Christmas was different. We wanted to spend the Christmas with just us and the cat, going to Christmas sauna at dinner at friend's place. Presents were opened while we watched Santa's Hotline, got awesome presents and all. Took candles to the graveyard, every graveyard in Finland had a stone or cross for people with relatives buried else…
