    Count me in on the pantry/freezer shopping! I want my freezer completely re-organized so I will try and be creative and use up as much as I can from it. I love the challenge!

    Happy New Year everyone. It was a very uneventful night for us but that is perfectly fine by me. I will start slowly taking down trees tomorrow and work on them through the weekend. It takes me awhile due to health issues, but I am in no hurry to see them go anyway! Today is laundry day; not very exciting but it needs to be done! Going to make some slow cooked turkey stock overnight and then use some of it tomorrow for a homemade turkey pot pie. That is one good thing about the colder months, all the comfort food dishes I can make! I can tell I over-indulged on too many Christmas cookies and snacks and way too many restaurant or Take-out meals. We rarely go out to restaurants anymore but we seemed to do that a lot over the last three weeks. I am looking forward to getting back to cooking normal meals. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe New Years Day!

    Happy New Year, and a big thank you to Crown for the yearly countdown! I don't post often, but I do visit a lot to see how things are going. It brightens up my day!

    Yesterday was a difficult one as I had to go to work and then took off an hour early to greet the delivery guy with the chair on wheels for my husband. Found him on the kitchen floor; he had fallen after calling me to let me know he was going to have a nap so I wouldn't call to check on him. The cat was hiding; not sure what to make of the situation. Took half an hour to get him to his feet and to bed.

    I took off and went and picked up a rollator that I had considered for two weeks, but finally had no choice.

    Nearly started to cry in the car on the drive home because the reality of the situation is hard to accept for him. I drove a bit further so the music could comfort me - toughen me - so I can be strong for him.

    If he doesn't want home care, then he has to accept that his legs aren't working well and he needs to use the rollator or his cane to get around to avoid a broken hip.

    O'Malley isn't sure what to make of all the wheels around here; he's a bit nervous about the cane to begin with and now just watches and wonders. He rests beside my chair most of the time now. Guess I'm the "Big Cat" now.

    I have to go back to work tomorrow, sure hope I kick this migraine that the fireworks caused.

    Stay Jolly!

    Sitting here in my den with just the light from the Christmas tree and window candles, a full belly and the sounds of my family throughout the house. I'm blessed. I hope all of you had a nice day off today. Back to work tomorrow.

    Oh Ron! It's so good to see you posting and checking in. I've missed your posts and commentary! I'm sorry to hear this past year has been such a struggle physically and emotionally for the entire family, but I pray that 2019 looks up for all of you.

    You're all in my thoughts and prayers - Happy New Year! Oh and I obviously think of you all the time when it comes to hockey - Pens are really turning it around lately!!!
