Merry Christmas

I didn't do a Christmas card this year.  I wasn't feeling it.  I didn't think I should send a card just because I thought I should.  I'm not ready to send out a picture of just the 3 of us, or just Katelyn.  I wasn't sure how I wanted to sign the card.  I didn't know what to write.  So, I decided to not worry about it and just not do it. 

I was also thinking about what a Christmas letter would read like from us.

Hello Friends,

2009, what a year.  We hope yours was better than ours.  Adam last his job.  We sold our house.  We put offers on 7 different homes and didn't get any of them.  We closed on our house, packed up, threw everything in storage and moved into my parents house.  We stopped looking for a home for the winter because I'm emotionally drained.  My company, where I've worked for almost 6 years got sold in November.  I went from a comfy small company of 17 to a large international company who's services I don't understand.  My job duties are getting transfered to Florida (I did our accounting and now we have an accounting department in Miami).  Oh, and we're trying to potty train.

All this while dealing with the loss of Andrew.  The most difficult, depressing, emotional experience we have ever faced. 

The good news?  The Dr put me on zoloft. 

Happy New Year!
Love, The Ledermans

quality family fun time

We did it, we finally planned a trip to Disneyworld.  Other than our honeymoon, Adam and I have never gone on a real vacation other than visiting my parents beach house or his parents house in Vermont.  I've wanted to go somewhere - somewhere fun, different, and exciting, somewhere on an airplane - for a very long time. 

After we lost Andrew I decided that we just need to do it.  There's more to life than work, chores, errands, and visits to the neighborhood park.  I feel like this trip is in honor of Andrew.  He got us to really do it.  Drop everything and head out for some quality family fun time.  We booked our flights last night and will be heading to Orlando February 7 for a week.  And I'm not worried about leaving Andrew behind...I know he'll be with us.
