Hi everyone!
I hope you are all enjoying your evening!
I am wrapping gifts and will be heading out in a little while to pick my daughters up from work. Our snow turned to rain earlier and now we have some icy spots out there, I thought it would be best for me to drive them in. I will be heading to bed after I get home so I wanted to wish you all a good night!
See you in the morning, sweet dreams!

My mom is just going to keep drinking a lot of water and hopefully if there's a small stone it'll pass! I want to avoid doctors and hospitals - don't need to get sick before Christmas!
Wonderful news that surgery is not needed. Will pray that all passes and she feels 100% better before Christmas!

Please pray for my mom, she has come down with one whopper of a cold, sore throat and just feeling run down. Also my son is getting it now too. I am working hard to make sure I do not get it!

I just had my first review, and it went very well!!

No work came in until 4 p.m.---then they needed me to review and correct an 8-page PowerPoint presentation in less than 30 minutes. Insane!

I haven't been responding to individual posts, but I'm reading them sending prayers up where they're needed.
