Holidays and family  
For the past week I have been enjoying the company of my darling niece and heart, V, for her winter break. Last week we spent all day at Dollywood and had a blast (photos of her entire visit will be forthcoming once she goes home next week.)

Christmas day was spent lounging on the couch until I had to go into work. Having her here made the anniversary of my sister's passing much easier to deal with.

She's grown up so well despite family upheaval that'd destroy most kids. I'm also proud of the fact that unlike her brother, sister and cousins, she doesn't smoke, drink or cuss. She's looking forward to starting her first job when she goes home and still plans on moving up here with me to go to college.

I think when she goes home it's going to break me.

I know how you feel. Slightly.

I've had over a year to learn to like living alone. I went from living in a house with my mom, my sister and her two kids. Moved out into my own apt.

Now, my nephew (my favorite) has asked to live with my for a few months, so he can save some money. He has been living in an apt with a room mate for a couple of years.

It'll be hard when he moves out, after I'll have gotten used to living with someone once again.
