When Will I Learn?

Hi All!

Okay - now that Christmas is over I am going to try to get back to a regular schedule of posting on my blog. I found that I really miss it when I don't blog!

Christmas was good in our house. Hubby and I celebrated Christmas Eve alone while we watched it snow. Yes - SNOW! In fact, we didn't get to church for the candlelight service because it was snowing so hard and the roads were getting iced over. This was the deciding factor because here we don't have snow plows. Yes, we have trucks that trundle along spreading a mix of sand and salt but they don't clear anything from the roads and really don't do too much good at all so - the roads get VERY treacherous!

Hubby and I spent Christmas Eve watching the snow outside and the weather reports between baking Christmas cookies.

On Christmas day the sun came out and cleared the roads enough for us to head to my friend Monique's house to celebrate the day with her and her family. It was fun to spend time with them and different since we don't have any children and Monique has a seven-year old and a three-year old!

For the rest of the weekend Hubby and I stayed around the house - we cleaned and relaxed. Hubby watched a lot of football!

Now it is Monday and Hubby is off to work and . . . . so am I! Last week I had talked to Linda and she told me that she was going to work Monday and Wednesday this week (the only days either of us need to work since only Susan is in the office this week). I was a bit doubtful since she had Chemo on Tuesday but . . . . I held out hope. AND I was refusing to get my hopes up. I did NOT say that I wasn't working on Monday because, from experience I know that only "jinxes" me and I end up working.

Unfortunately, I was talking to Mom and . . . I said it. So - of course, I am working today!

I am hoping to head in really early so that I can get home early.

Wish me luck!


Voice Update: I have been trying to do more inhale exercises because my voice has been having more "missed" than I would like. It seems to be doing the job. However, today I have a lot of drainage down the back of my throat and that always sort of messes things up a bit. If it isn't one thing - it is another! I am still a little nervous about losing my voice again - I met a man with SD whose voice was good for five years and then . . . he lost it again and now isn't doing well at all! yikes!

Good luck!

Sorry to hear you have to work today. I"m using a vacation day but head back tomorrow. Blech.

Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas. A white one at that.

Have a great week and a Happy New Year!

A belated Merry Christmas to you! I'm glad y'all got to have a white Christmas. That is always fun. I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble with your voice. Never ending battle, eh? Oy.

I'm glad you got to spend Christmas with a family.. kids really make the day special. I'm sorry you don't have any.

Our snow trucks here do about the same thing... sand and salt. So I'm glad you didn't go out in the snow!

Your Christmas sounds very relaxing!
