I was wondering how long it has been since I have written and it turns out that it was my fathers birthday last March.
I don't know what that means, but to say that I have lost most of the last 10 months because I will never remember them otherwise.
I got the idea to come back to this site because I began the novel 13 moons. It is wonderful, and the man keeps a journal.
So much is lost when not recorded in a journal. This I realize most when I go back and read these entries... I am surprised every time at how much I have forgotten.
Let me begin with Christmas.
Kasyl insisted in waiting in a really long line at the mall to tell Santa what he wanted. I could see both he and Thayne explaining in great detail what they wished for.
When they were done I asked them what they told him, and they said they forgot but that he said he would see what he could do.
I tried to push the matter, but they both insisted that I didn't need to know.
After Christmas Kasyl let me know that Santa didn't bring him anything that he asked for.
Kasyl wanted a robotic, remote control lego set. Very expensive I imagine, but mostly way out of his age group.
As I spend a lot of time assembling legos for them I am really glad that I didn't have to spend hours and hours putting together a robotic, remote control set!
I told him that Santa probably thought he could use a bike more and he seemed fine with that. Last year I remember Kasyl was mad at Santa for not wrapping the presents that he brought.
This year he asked if Santa had the same gift tags as us. I told him that lots of people have those same gift tags.
I was wise enough to use different paper, but didn't pay enough attention to the details I guess.
I am afraid that this is probably that last year that they will believe.
On a sad note, Dennis's dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July.
I hope and pray that he proves them wrong.
If not, Dad I guess you will get a chance to meet him. I hope you like him.
I love you.
