Ok so I know this is a little early but I'm kind of annal retentive when it comes to planning ahead. How do you all handle the holidays? My Mother loved Halloween. Dressed up as a witch and gave out candy (also her and my fathers birdays that month). Thanksgiving was a time that all of us kids got together at my Mom's for a HUGE dinner. She baked like 24 pies, 2 huge turkeys and all the fixings. All of us girls had certain chores. My sister and I had to peel and chop all the vegtables. Now that she is gone I don't know what it will be like. A lot of the family aren't planning on being there. Christmas will be strained this year too. My Father-in-laws favorite holiday. He turned his house into the North Pole. Wasn't a space that didn't hold Christmas decorations of some sort - inside and out (his birthday on the 3rd). He passed on December 22nd. Then we spent Christmas day with my Mom. Gave her a sleigh ride with our horses. She passed on December 30th. So how do you go through those 3 months of holidays/birthdays? I don't think any of us are going to do well at all.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
