Just got done with lunch here. DH and I have been cleaning most of the day. We just have our great room to do yet. Toy Story is on, so that is keeping the kids busy.

Hope you're all enjoying your afternoon. Thank you all again for your kind words. I knew I could come here for some smiles and advice! 😄

Good morning, everyone. How are you all? I am doing okay. Just sitting here with the kids, letting DH sleep in. He's been working a lot, so I figured he deserves it.

Yesterday was my day off, so I start back tonight, for my first of 4 days. I'm not sure what's been going on with me lately, I sort feel like I am a slump. I thought this I wasn't going to get the "Winter Blues" and I'm not even sure if that's what it is, since winter will soon be over.

A lot is going on with a lot of my friends/co-workers right now. I know I told you about the one with cancer, but two of my friends, both are pregnant and one just found out she has a mass on her adrenal gland. She has to have emergency surgery. It can be very serious. If it would be cancer, I don't know if they will do chemo or radiation or not. My other friend, she just found her baby has a hole in it's heart, the worst kind of all and they also think the baby has Down Syndrome. They aren't concerned about the Down's, which they are very loving parents, but very concerned about the hole.

There is also another issue going on at work with one of my friends, which I really don't want to talk about on here, but it I think that is the thing, that is bugging me the most. All of the things, wrapped in one, just have me worried and have me praying for everyone that I just sort of feel "blah." I haven't been doing a whole lot extra, except for stuff with DH and the kids.

Tell me...does this sound stupid or normal. I know God only gives us things with can handle. I just sometimes don't understand why things happen the way they do, but as I said, I know he gives us what we can handle.

Sorry for the somber post, but I needed some advice. Make it a great day! Thinking of all of you and praying for all of you who needs it! God Bless and talk soon! Keep smiling!

Be sure to let us know the MRI with contrast results. She's our mom, too, LOL!

She had the MRI this morning and it did show a spot on the brain. So they did another one with contrast. Now we just have to wait until tomorrow to see what the doctor says. I let her drive home from the hospital on the country roads and she did fine so she decided to go ahead and drive herself back to work. I don't know if she'll want to drive friday morning in the snow but at least I might get tomorrow off from driving her to work. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!

When I get done cleaning my house, with the way Ella sheds and the way the kids play, we will just have to clean again! Haha

Thanks to the MMC friends who discussed pickle juice as a cure for muscle cramps a couple of weeks ago. I had to try it out around 10:30 last night & it worked! I mentioned it to a co-worker & she had leg cramps last night, so she'll be taking your advice next time too!

I've raced through the first couple of months this year with few issues. I seem to be getting the blues just as spring should be around the corner. I listened to Christmas music on the way to work today; I think that's my first time this year. It seems that I am the hamster on the wheel when it comes to getting anything done at home. I'm holding steady but can't see any progress & it's frustrating. Oh well, that stuff will always be there, so I intend to enjoy life & work on things as I can.

Think happy Christmas thoughts! We're just a few months away...
