What are you all up today? I am relaxing right now, watching some Christmas movies and going to finish up my family Christmas cards and going to mail all my cards today. Then later this afternoon, I'm going to take EA to see the new movie, Frozen. It looks really cute. We're then going to go out to dinner. I have to pick up a couple of teacher gifts while I'm at the mall as well.

I'll be heading back to work tonight, work tomorrow night, then I'll be off again. It will be nice to home with DH and the kids for the holidays!

Hope you all have a wonderful day! I will be checking in and out as the day goes on! God Bless and keep smiling!

Stay safe out there, friend and I hope you and EA have a great time this evening!!!

I pray she will be pain-free for Christmas. It is hard to enjoy something when you do not feel well.

So, today she has to run for some tests and that includes one to check for the stones. Kidney stones could be good or bad. If they are small enough to pass then she should feel better for Christmas. If they are big and need to be removed surgically, that likely wouldn't be taken care of until after Christmas and she would feel no better in the meantime.

So now we just have to hope that there is no infection elsewhere and that if she has kidney stones that they are small.

Thank you for your prayers! We appreciate them!

I love this weather, too! I just don't like when everyone gets crazy on the roads. We will enjoy the day, thanks.

Hope you're doing well, Seawaters!

We are so busy with the house! We aren't putting up a tree or decorations, so I just cannot get into the Christmas Spirit. Hubby already has his Christmas gift from me--an automatic screw putter-inner! Can't think of the technical name right now. That was what he wanted so he can use it before Christmas. I still have to get him something so he will have at least one surprise! Made, I would like some of your fudge. We aren't even making cookies, since we have no oven or stove! If the architect had not taken so long, we would probably have a LOT of the work done by now. But, NOOOO!

We went out for Chinese last night to celebrate Hubby's birthday. That food was so delicious that we will definitely go back, even with the 25-plus miles roundtrip.

Xmas, I am thinking of you and pray a calming spirit for your family. Grandparents are so special, and it is hard to see them having to go through illness, especially as they get into their 90s! You are so lucky to have had her for this long. I envy you that.

For some reason, my computer is running slowly. I sure hope nothing is wrong. I am keeping the site open and will try to check in later.

Slightly crazy day---had to get up 45 minutes earlier for an early dental appointment. It was 4 degrees F, and my windshield washer line was frozen up. Not good, because there's snow in the forecast. So after the dentist I went to the car dealership so they could drain the washer fluid and put in some super winter mix that they have. Got to work nearly 3 hours late, the snow had already started. Shortly after I got there we got an email saying we should go home and work from home when we could, so I brushed off the car and headed back home. I'm here keeping an eye on the email for jobs and keeping an eye on the snow. I have to keep the driveway open so Mr. can get in when he gets home.
