So, since we'll be the new year in just a few hours here, I wanted to wish everyone an happy new year.
Sadly I won't be able to stream on the first day of 2014. There has been a lot of rough and tumble within my extended family on my father's side. It's nothing really new as that has been going on for years if not close to a decade already. But as it stands, 2013 has proved to be one of the worst year in that regard, especially in these recent holidays.
It's caused a great deal of stress to my grandmother who generally just wished nothing else than keep everyone together. So while I'm loathe at having to attend in present cirsconstances, tomorrow I will thus be attending the Mercier family dinner hosted by my grandparents on the 1st of every years. It's not something I'm looking forward to but I know the presence is something that could offer, at the very least, some level of comfort to my grandparents especially with the latest very ugly clashes at a family meeting that was supposed to defuse some of the conflicts between my father's siblings.
My grandmother especially mentionned to my father her stress and fears regarding tomorrow(which I can only all too understand considering another tragedy which hit the family in the midst of all this, one which I'd rather not discuss here) so I've decided that it might be best for me to be there.... even if it's not something I'm really looking forward to.
As such, commissions streams will be resuming on the 2nd of January rather than the first.
