One week and a Christmas later, I'm back at home, waiting to go back to work tomorrow. BOOOOO.

So, how did it go? Well, it was kind of up and down....

Somehow I always get stuck with crappy travel at Christmastime. Never any other time, just Christmas. Once my bus broke down (engine was FRIED) and we were stuck for two hours waiting for another one to come pick us up.

This time I took the train home, but the train runs on another company's track, and if one of their trains are coming, we have to stop for them to pass us. We were stopped 3 times; I was stuck on the train 2 hours longer than I should have. And then on the way back today, the bus engine overheated an hour from my final destination, so we had to wait for another bus to replace it. If we'd only gotten to the next stop (Yorkdale Mall), I could've at least gotten onto the subway and caught my bus at Union. D<

Meanwhile, my dad managed to get home for Christmas; he'd been sent up north for work the week before, and we weren't sure if he'd get a flight back. Buuuut he was sick on Christmas day (not too bad, just something he ate the night before), so he wound up staying home and chilling while we went to our aunt's house for dinner.

Most of the other family visits went well. I didn't get to see my sister much, as she was stuck working a lot (she worked every day I was home, except Xmas itself), but I got to see my cousin's little boy again; Tyler turned 1 earlier this month, but he looks like a 2 year-old! He's still working up to walking, he can do it with someone holding his hands. I'm Auntie Becky, even if I am a cousin. ♥

But I'm still worried about my grandmother; she's still in the hospital. They believe some of her problems are attributed to Parkinson's and she's being treated for that, but she's still having serious problems keeping food down, and she seems to be a bit more confused than before, repeating herself and not finding the right words at times. I'm hoping the confusion just has to do with the meds they're trying with her, but she's so fucking tiny and frail now. They need to find out what's wrong with her digestive system, and I mean now.

Got some good gifts on Sunday; a new camera, my biggest one. My old one was big and clunky, no good for everyday use. Plus I got some movies from my sister.

I think I've caught a cold though; my throat's been scratchy since Sunday, and now I'm coughing. Of course.

And I didn't get any art/fic done while traveling; I slept through most of both trips, just because of how freaking early the trips were (I was on the move by 6am, both ways). But from the sounds of it I'm not doing anything for New Year's besides working, so I may try something holiday-related this weekend. If not, there's always next year. XD;
