Merry Christmas!

It’s hard to believe that Christmas has arrived already.  I’m not sure where the time has went but I’m just not really in the mood or even spirit for it all.  So today is being spent home alone just curled up in bed enjoying Hallmark Christmas shows.  I’ve seen most of them more than once except for the new one they release each week.

Happy Birthday to my heavenly father Jesus Christ and the true meaning of why we celebrate this holiday season.  The greatest gift of all of gifts. 


there was no decorating this year for the holiday so I didn’t have to worry about taking a tree down or doing any cleaning and that was fine with me.  My Christmas meal was baked  Chicken breast with a baked potato which made a excellent meal  and I finished the night out watching my all time favorite movie .. Yep, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Believe in Christmas

From my home to yours …. Merry Christmas!!

Christmas Eve & Happy B’day Ole Lady

Today the Ole Lady (birth mom) would have been her 75th birthday if she were still here on earth.  She has been gone 8 yrs.  It’s amazing how fast time goes by.  Happy Birthday in heaven!

I had a ruff night sleeping so I was very slow moving this morning and getting my coffee and morning routine done was a challenge.  Today was spent at my mother in law with the grand kids and family.  We had a great meal and the kids opened presents and us adults all scratched off our lottery tickets.  We all buy tickets to give to each other and see who comes out the biggest winner.  My mother law hit a $100 and her totally was $111.00, my ex daughter law hit $40 and my nephew hit $40.  last year I won enough to almost get my money back on the tickets I spent but this year I only ended up with $5 but hey better than nothing! 

It was a great time spending it family but I have to be honest and say I was glad to get back home and tucked into bed and spend the rest of my evening curled up in bed as I ate more than I should of with all the tummy issues and It was a miserable night.  It was spent watching Hallmark

Holiday Blues …

This sure does fit me as this year I've  seen to have the holiday blues.  I just can’t get myself into the spirit and I'm doing money as gifts this year.  I just don’t feel good and told the kids I don’t feel up to having anything here for the holiday so were just doing it at my mother in laws house.  It’s much easier than trying to cram so much into one day and the kids all have other places to go.

I’ve been spending most my time in bed on heating pads as we’ve had some pretty cold temps already and winter is very hard on me.  In fact I had a Dr’s appointment & surgery scheduled I had to end up cancelling as I'm just not healthy enough yet.  Winter here where it is cold is mostly me spent hibernating in bed trying to keep the back from screaming.

Happy Birthday Tyson

Today my oldest son turned 33 yrs old!  It’s hard to believe how fast the time has gone by.  He is a father of a 12 and 8 yr olds.  It seems like yesterday he was just a baby himself and it’s even harder to believe my grand babies are no longer babies and my grand daughter will be 13 the end of January!  Wow, time seems to just fly right on by.


His dad and him, he loved cuddling with his daddy.

Happy Birthday Ira

I never know what time I'm going to end up getting to sleep, how much sleep I will get once I get to sleep or even what time I'm going to get up.  Some days I'm up at 4 or 5 am, others mornings may be 9 am or then again it may be 2 PM, it just depends on what kind of night it was for me and how much sleep I actually got.  But no matter what time it is, the first thing I do and need is my coffee!  I was drinking more coffee but have limited myself to 1-2 cups per day due to tummy issues and then it’s lemon ginseng tea after that or plain room temp water.

Today is my father in law’s birthday.  I miss him very much, he was wonderful to me and I was blessed to have him in my life.  Happy Birthday in heaven, your deeply loved and dearly missed.

This is very fitting for exactly what my father in law Ira gave me, his Love, Kindness and Heart.

Snow … Cold … Winter

The plan was to pack up and head back to the stick home on Sunday but waking up to a surprise of huge Snowflakes coming down changed that right away.  It was just enough snow to cover the ground and make everything wet, yet beautiful!


Right away of waking up, I knew it wasn’t gonna happen and looking out the window I definitely knew it wasn’t!  So instead it was a Hallmark Movie Channel day of laying in bed and trying to keep the back and legs from screaming with pain. 

Monday was another Dr’ appt and that ended up being a long day which is common with me.  Nothing ever seems to go as planned and new medication was ordered and of course the Pharmacy has to order it as it’s not one kept on hand.   I was just happy to get my screaming body back to the home on Wheels and into bed. 

It was decided that since very cold weather and more snow is being called for, it was best to make the best of it and get what was needed to head to the stick home.  Since the cold weather moved in quicker than predicted I've been under the weather in bed and I will be honest, the home on wheels is a wreck! 

There was so much too do and my body just wasn’t cooperating like it needed to.  The dishes were done, dirty clothes were gathered, food that could freeze was gathered up and the frig was emptied out.

I left things in the cabinets that freezing wouldn’t hurt and that I knew mice couldn’t get into.  Although I did leave them some food out that will not be good for that just in case.  It took most the day as this body just can take so much.  Finally the van was loaded and the fur balls and we made it to the house.  It’ gonna be a big adjustment for us all as Sparky and the dogs have to go back to being leashed in town.  Momma cat can still run loose.

We are now back in the stick home and the end of the week, cold and more snow is being predicted.  It’s time to hibernate and I'm dreading it.  On the plus side I'm glad to have my unlimited electricity as I used my heating pads all night long on a screaming body.
