Our plan was to stay at home and wait for the ball drop during the new year's but a family friend invited us over to their new house so we could ring the new year together. It was a fun night for all of us.
We love the Mascio's, they are the most kind-hearted, and down-to-earth people you will ever meet. Despit their status in life, they keep their feet on the ground. I admired and respect them for that.
While having a blast at their home, my mind kept thinking of my Mom because I wasn't able to call her and talked to her. There's still no electricity when my siter visited her. When she came back to the city, I learned that she was sick and very weak. It's so jhard when you are so far away from your love ones. I feel helpless. I asked my other sister to go home and take care of our Mother for a while and bring her to the hospital.
We started our new year with friends and it was wonderful. We saw each other again at the mass in the morning. We also visited my father-in-law after attending the Sunday service at Gables Care Center in Hopedale Ohio.
