It Doesn't Feel Any Different

I became a great-grandmother on November 26th.  I don't feel any different as nothing has really changed.  I have not been contacted by my grandson so I have no particulars on this little one other than it is a boy and they call him CJ.  It really hurt at first to know they want me to have nothing to do with him but I have now resigned myself to it.  I gave away all the things I had made and bought so they are not a reminder of what was supposed to be a joyous occasion.
I have spent the past 2 days getting my Christmas baking done and managed to not do a lot of taste testing (used hubby instead).  Next weekend my youngest son and his boy will be spending a day with us as they have other plans for Christmas.  On the 23rd is our big family celebration.  Last count there were 18 stockings hung on the bannister. 
I have a doctor's appointment this morning as I found a small lump in my right breast a couple of weeks ago or at least I think I did.  It may just be me being paranoid after my sister's recent bout with breast cancer.  Not getting to excited about it right now as it may not even exist.


  1. Oh Tessa, so sorry that you're having family difficulties. Hope your doctor can rule out any serious issues. I went through the same thing in June, very scary.

  2. I simply don't know what to say Tessa. It hasn't exactly been your year sweetheart, has it? I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I think I would faint, though, if I was lucky enough to have 18!! EIGHTEEN? stockings on my banister. WOW. So you do have that to enjoy. And good job on using hubby for tasting. Now where are MY cookies, huh? giggle

    I will be saying my prayers that you come back with great news regarding your doctor's appointment. Good luck my friend.
