New Year

What can I say about 2008? other than - IT SUCKED ;-) I can't wait for it to be over.

I hope 2009 is a better year for me and a lot of people I know.

Here's wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year!!!

Random thoughts

I hope everyone had a good Christmas.

On Monday, I decided to make the stuffed cabbage for Christmas Eve. I was so proud until I was ready to take it out of the oven and realized I forgot to put the rice in LOL. It tasted okay but I could tell something was missing. Ron went to the grocery store Tuesday morning to buy the ingredients so I could make it again. As he was going back to the van after shopping, he noticed the cart guy laying on the ground. He yelled to him but the guy was passed out. He went into the store and told customer service. The lady came out right away. By the time she came out and called the guy, he was awake. Apparently, the guy was getting the carts and slipped on the ice and hit his head. They called the ambulance. I think that's probably why I forgot to put the rice in the stuffed cabbage so Ron could find the guy laying on the ground ;-)

We had a very nice Christmas Eve. My brother and sister-in-law came. She made some really good kielbasa and sauerkraut.

We had a quiet Christmas. I made roast beef. Ron and I weren't going to buy anything for each other but then the day before Christmas we decided to get a GPS for the family. A will probably use it mostly but who knows, sometime Ron and I might be able to take a trip and it could come in pretty handy.

Mom's been doing pretty well. Her sugar seems to be under control now. We are still having problems with the blood thinner.

We started taking down our decorations today. Usually, we wait until New Years but I'm ready.

Talk to you all later.

Christmas


I wish I could say that this picture is from my home but it's not. It's my brother-in-law and sister-in-laws home. Don't they have a lovely fireplace. All my Christmas pictures vanished when my hard drive crashed and I had to get Windows re-installed. But anyway,


Have a Merry Christmas.

Random things

We had a pretty nice Thanksgiving. I hope everyone did as well.

The weather around here has been nasty lately. Today, we've had rain, snow and hail. Sign of things to come ???

We've got our Christmas tree up and decorations. I've got all my cards done. They are just waiting to be mailed. Probably tomorrow. We decided to cut way down on our Christmas giving this year. It seems like most people I've talked to have decided the same.

Mom's doing okay. We've had trouble getting her blood thinner regulated for some reason. Today, she had to get another blood test. She's had about 4 in 2 1/2 weeks. Also, I think her blood glucose machine was messing up. She should be getting a new one in a day or so.

Have a good night :-)
