You've all been tremendously supportive and encouraging and the depths of my appreciation can't begin to be told in this 30 second time spot - so, for now, just know I'm here. I'm okay. I'm just a little overwhelmed with this "Dad Stuff." Some days I can't stop crying, other days, well, other days I guess all I can say is, I cry less.
I'm not in a very holiday happy spirit. I'm tired. I haven't bought a single gift. No tree. I can't even decide if I should have a tree. The thing I'm looking the most forward to is the possibility of having my niece and nephew here to visit for a week or so after Christmas. They bring me great joy and honestly that's the only Christmas gift I want right now.
Okay, see, I'm over my 30 seconds and haven't even gotten past if I should put up a tree or not.
I'll be back. And thanks for being here.
