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!
That's terrible, Sugar. I'll be praying for these families, too.

I'm excited to experience and report on the store! Kim and I discussed the possibility of visiting this weekend, but I believe next weekend (March 2) is the most likely date. She seems to have her hopes set on doing something else this Saturday. Until then, the suspense will kill me!

Good morning everyone! We had some more snow this morning. Some people complain about it but I love it! Just catching up with the posts and listening to Christmas music! I'm so glad I have it on my iphone as well. Get my fix no matter where I am! Not much new. Wife has to get her tooth fixed Monday. But I have a four day weekend! I booked monday and tuesday off. Needed some relax and away from work time, you know how it is. Watching Scrooged! Yay for Christmas! Back to the movie I go. Hope you all stay safe and have a merry Thursday!

Enjoy your days off! Thinking about your wife getting her tooth fixed, makes my teeth hurt. Hope she won't have too much pain!

I would be, too. It looks very nice, especially from the outside. The website can be found here.

Also, apparently the owner used to own a store called "Christmas in the Capital," which closed the year I first moved to Ottawa (2006). An article that describes the relationship between the two stores can be found here. It's great to know that there is enough love and support of year-round Christmas stores. I can't wait to visit. It'd be real nice to be able to work year-round Christmas stores into a MMC Podcast this year, too. For that, we'll wait and see of Jeff's plans.

Thanks, made. Today is a big day for me. I have a doctor's appointment. There, my doctor and I will discuss the next (and hopefully final) steps of my recovery.
