Oh Christmas Was Over With So Swiftly

I hope you all had a blessed Christmas. It was great to
have all the kids and grandsons here.
I didn't get any pictures.
This picture is my son Steve's boys.
They are awesome!!
I received some Bath and Body Works bath products from them.

Rich got me a coat..I really wanted one. It was justwhat I wanted, but
it didn't fit so it goes back to the store.
I don't have much luck with coats. I'm 5ft 2in.

Rich and I also got a Mac Pack, updating our software with Snow Leopard, I Works
& I Life . Now we have I Tunes 10 also. I just love Apple.

We had a great breakfast and ate all the food. My girls did the
cooking. I did the casserole , it was yummy.

Rich is out of town working Monday, Tues, Wednesday.
Last night the power was out from 11PM to 5AM.
It didn't get too cold here.

Just Wanted to Let You Know

My son and his family at the Bears game
on Sunday, Dec. 12th, 2010.
Starting (all faced forward) with my darling daughter in law , Andrea,
next grandson Joe, then Ernie..Andrea's dad.
Back row my son STEVE, then grandson Jon..last and tallest?? grandson

If you email me or post on my Face Book
if I don't answer you, it's because I forget usually.

If you call me and leave a voice mail and I don't
call you back it's because I forgot.

Sometimes I don't check the phone, I don't always get up until late in the day.
Don't think I'm avoiding anyone, just forgetful and some days, I'm
not in a good mood. Some days are just a bit too much for me.
I am not decorating this Christmas. I just don't have the energy.
I LOVE this season usually, but my body just wants to rest.
I must get into an energy exercise and stay in it.

I don't even feel like going to the mailbox.
That use to be the highlight of my day.

I'll be back to post before Christmas. May the season be merry and bright.

Holiday Shopping

Our shopping has been going well. Doing the online thing.
I finished almost everything today. It's so much better for me.
I got lists from all my family except
2 of my grandsons.

We were without a furnace for 4 days and 3 nights.
Not as bad as I expected..the temp has been in single
digits at night.

We now have a new furnace installed for heat tonight
and installation will be finished tomorrow.

I had a mammogram today and all is good !!
