    Looking forward to a better 2013 for all of you. Please go out and have a great time tonight but dont do anything exceptionally dumb like driving when you're drunk. Crash at a friends place not in to a phone pole or another car. 6 hours and change to go... :yahoo:

    Well away from here
    New Year's will likely never be the same for me and my family. My mother in law is at the end of her fight against cancer and the game may be called tonight if you get my drift.

    Sad.

    Thanks, and yeah it does suck. My wife and her are very close. She was diagnosed in February and very soon afterwards we learned it was a death sentence, the kind no one survives. The hardest part is watching someone who used to be alive wither to the point they can't even open their eyes anyone. They can't do anything.

    Her and I didn't always get along, but this is beyond what she deserved. She was a good woman and she's only 64. The fun part will be telling the kids. Its ****ed up all the way around.

    Not to dampen anyone else's night, have fun, be safe.

    It's fine Conu, my mom is sort of going through the same, her cancer is in remission but she really does not do much of anything any more.

    I'll slide down the hill and watch the ball drop from the local watering establishment.

    Rumor has something like 21 DUI road checks being set up tonight in my town, you'd be insane to drink and drive.

    I never go out on New Years Eve anymore. Too many wackos on the road.

    Happy New Year everybody.

    Thanks.

    She passed at 10:11 pm our time - 1 hour ahead. My wife is home now, sleeping. She couldn't watch her mother's final breath, she had to go outside. She apparently then felt very calm, and her sister touched and said she had passed.

    Its been an interesting Christmas. Had a guy I worked with and was quite friendly with die on Christmas night. He was only 24. Had to take him under my wing so to speak when he worked in the same company. Saw him on the friday before Christmas and my last words to him were to have a safe christmas. Now there is this to deal with, it makes for an odd holiday season to be honest. Hasn't felt anything like Christmas at all knowing that Vanessa (my mother-in-law) was dying and would likely take her last breath soon. It was obvious she fought to make it until Christmas. Immediately after that day it seemed as though she began truly going downhill from an already broken state.

    When she was diagnosed in February, they found 30 nodes of cancer in her brain alone, she lived until today. Tough girl. No question about it.

    Please make sure you give your loved ones a hug, you are not promised tomorrow.

    So sorry to hear that Con .. best wishes for you and your family.

    Pads I'm glad to hear your mother is in remission. Hopefully in time she'll find more energy and vibrance.

    Happy New Year to the whole ThePhins family. We're a dysfunctional family, but a family nonetheless.
