Well the tree is down and the Christmas decorations are put away.  It's January 7th.  It's kind of depressing, really. 

It seems that every year, I get so caught up in the lead up to Christmas.  I baked cookies like a madman.  Shopped at the mall for family and friends.  Ran here and there, visiting the old age home, etc.  I had Derek's picture taken at Sears and had it made into photo cards, then sent them out.   Before I knew it, Derek's Christmas concert happened, and Christmas was right around the corner.   December seemed to go so fast.  Too fast.

So now it's a new year, 2015.  Our neighbors are moving away in a month.  Derek has to fit as much playtime as he can with his best friend before he moves to their new house in Texas.  I'm not looking forward to it, and I have no idea what to expect from a new neighbor.  They have not sold the house yet.
