Sunday already!
Up early!
DD was just going to bed at 3:30, and I was getting up!


Of course prayers, MK!

I got my package yesterday! Didn't open, and mine is being mailed out today!

It's been a lovely, but hectic weekend. I love having the kids here!

Just remind me what day to open.

MK, thinking of your husband and you. Hope it is contained.

Did a lot of cooking yesterday. Made chili that tastes too salty to me. Let it cook down a lot. Wish I knew how to counteract the saltiness. Made turkey tortilla soup that is yummy. Have one more meal I was going to make but never got to it. I am going to try a recipe for unstuffed peppers.

Working today an tomorrow. DH away Monday-Wednesday. He is going to DS31's today. They are decorating their tree. I made chili for them but not sure because it tastes salty to me. I didn't add much salt.

DIL 12 weeks pregnant tomorrow.

I have doctors appt Tuesday. Will get blood work. Hope my hemoglobin A1C hasn't gone up or I start diabetic testing and diet. I already eat pretty healthy but would have to be more Atkins like.

Thursday is hair and brow day.

Better get ready to work. Want to do exercises first. I haven't done my core stuff for over a week.

I'm here for the month. Jingle all the way! Haha

Working on another hat. Hope Kim likes it. I made her another slouch hat to match her angel hair scarf. She hasn't seen either of then. Binding off on this one and then it's done

I'm trying to stay home today, catch up on email and the DVR and just chill. It's going to be a long week!

Debbie - if you put a whole peeled potato in whatever, it supposedly absorbs the excess salt?

MK -

Becky - poor hamster!

St. Nick is December 6. I thought once everyone had their packages, we open. Mine went in the mail today - 2 day priority mail.

I just told DH I haven't sat down or relaxed all weekend!! Even today - DD pulled out about 9, and DH wanted to go and buy some furniture!

It wasn't too salty. They loved it.

I had my turkey tortilla soup last night. Yummy! My son took all the turkey bones and made stock for me. It simmered for 12 hours. I found a crockpot recipe on Pinterest but mostly made it on the stove. I think the crock part could have been done on the stove but it came out great.

With DH away I wanted food to reheat.

I only was scheduled for 8 yesterday. I am doing 8 today. I picked up 8 Wednesday. I added 4 hours next Wednesday. I need to save a lot of money with DS29 moving in Feb. DS22 getting married. DS31 having another baby.we have eaten through a ton if savings. Think I will start working every Wednesday I am not already scheduled.

Better dress for the gym. I took last week off from the gym and only ran twice. Need to get back into my routine.

Gym workout done. Now off to work.

Becky, start fresh today.

MK, let us know what doctor says.

Cindy, we thought we would have a quiet night Saturday and DS29 and DIL came over.

Becky, sorry about your hamster.

Need to leave. Don't want to.

Yesterday was busy. Mondays are usually worse.
It is only 8 hours(she tells herself)

hi!

DH had a blood test and something else today - urine sample, maybe.
Tomorrow is a PET scan and a chest xray.

I wish the doc was in town this week.
I'd like to get this started!

Debbie, I gt a new little drawf hamster. She's cute. I named her sable cuz her dr is sable color on her back. Bright idea huh? I'm not too unique on names. I'm surprised Kim wasn't named "girl"!

Figured you got a new hamster.

MK, I am sure you just want all the results. Very stressful time for you.

Jenn, the new house will keep you busy but it will be worth it.

Watching The Voice on DVR.

11am doctors appointment tomorrow. Need blood work. Also need to go to Rockville to get my ring that was being sized. They actually just put little balls in the band to size it.

Did everyone mail their packages?
I got mine! Waiting to open!

My Mom is back in the hospital. Not sure what is what anymore - thankfully a good friend from HS is a nursing supervisor there and is going to intervene with my Dad, Social services and her doc. I don't know how much more my Dad can take.

Off to DD's for a Fletcher day....not sure if she just wants to hang out around the house or if she has stuff we can do.....

Cindy, do you know why your mom is in the hospital?

Your daughter probably could use help with laundry and folding. Mirsa and Billy always did. Then again they had to trek down the hall to the apartment machines. My daughter in law was always happy to take a shower and not worry about the baby.

My middle son told me they might have a baby in a year. I may become a daycare provider on my days off. Not sure how they could afford daycare.

Mirsa is 12 weeks. I think she has a doctors appointment this week. Since she is 35 they are doing more testing then last time.

I mailed mine Sunday two day priority mail.
Whoever I have should get it tomorrow!

Debbie - we found out it wasn't a stroke - I didn't think it was. She had some type of seizure.

I broke the news to my Dad that if they would like to celebrate Christmas, they can come out the weekend before to celebrate. It's far too stressful to have them here on Christmas, and all of my family dreads it......this was a compromise that we came up with after consulting someone in the counseling profession. He seemed ok with it, and said that now he can celebrate Christmas Eve mass in his own parish......
