So just how do I write another upbeat post when I am anything but "up" lately?? Just like I've gotten through this past holiday....gritting my teeth and JUST DOING IT!! Here's proof that Thanksgiving dinner made it on the table!!! Our Norman Rockwell dinner scene full of stuffed smiling faces! Wait!!! Something looks odd with this picture doesn't it?? Seems to be lacking a face or two, eh? As well documented in past posts, you would be right to surmise that Auntie Peggy can be found on the other end of the camera. Hmmmm, now where in the world could the author be found??????? That would be correctly answered if you guessed.... HOME IN HER BED!!!!!!!!! Now I did not miss from lack of trying I assure you! I gulped quantities of prescription drugs and tried every trick right down to a good long soak in a very HOT tub to make the world stop spinning and the nausea end. It just wasn't in the day's plan! Patrick and the girls tried their utmost to get me upright but to no avail. They stepped up big time and peeled, chopped, and stuffed in order to get our portion of the community meal ready but in the end the partial preparations were run up to Auntie Peggy who finalized the cooking. The chemical cocktail churned in my insides and then knocked out my lights!! I slept through the whole party. I would have slept through this whole weekend except that my girls are in a tailspin from worrying about my unusual behavior! So from my prone position on the couch I have directed the beginning of Christmas. They are bursting with the pride of accomplishment to know that they alone were able to dig out the nativity set and set it up, dig out the box of ornaments and carry it up the stairs to the living room, get all the tree parts laid out and staged so that all I had to do was pop up for a brief moment to assemble and place in it's stand! I am living in eternal optimism that I will be a fully contributing member of the ornament hanging team tomorrow!! Those tests and appointments that I whined about in the last post...cannot come soon enough!! Just thought I'd let you see why I have the BEST DAUGHTERS in the whole world!!! Mari's drawing of God watching over me.... and Julia's showing God watching over me as I pray at my bedside. Can't do anything but improve when you have these guys on your team!!!!!
