Of course! Happy New Year!

on December 31, 2008 - 10:16pm

It is now officially 2009 in Texas! I was never one to party and celebrate a new year. This year is no different. One thing about using a debit card is that I won't be writing the wrong year on a check.

I’m sick again. It’s an acute upper respiratory infection. My voice is almost totally gone. I hope I feel well enough to go out tomorrow. Nothing I can do about it if I’m not. At least I’ve got antibiotics.

Best wishes to everyone for a happy, healthy, prosperous and … of course … Josh filled New Year.

God bless us, everyone!

Mom

on December 24, 2008 - 5:23pm

I made a trip to the emergency room last night with my mom. She was having some chest pains. She sometimes gets a pain here and there that is nothing to worry about. This was different because she was getting a lot of sharp pains that were hurting her and also scaring her. Thankfully, these pains were connected to the ones she gets that are nothing to worry about. She spent the night in the hospital but is home with me now. We’re going to have to measure any future pains by what happened last night. I’m just grateful that she’s ok.

God bless us, everyone!

New tires

on December 18, 2008 - 10:07pm

I bought 4 new tires today. I could have bought 2 and kept the 2 that still had some tread on them but I got a good discount. It was worth getting them because I would have had to buy the tires in a few months anyway. Unfortunately, my car also needs new struts. The problem with the ones on there now are what caused one of my tires to wear so unevenly on the inside that it started falling apart while driving last Saturday. It’s going to cost me almost $500 but it has to be done.

We had our annual Christmas luncheon at work today. I originally requested to take off today and tomorrow as vacation days but the scheduled luncheon, along with the nasty weather, made me change my mind. I’ll be off all next week instead. Fortunately, it doesn’t matter at my job that I changed the days.

I mailed all my cards last Friday for the Christmas card exchange. I’ve received about 45 cards so far. It’s fun to get so many cards with all the wonderful greetings.

God bless us, everyone!

Brrrr!!!!

on December 15, 2008 - 9:33pm

It’s cold outside, like 26 degrees with a wind chill of 14. My standard comment is, “Who left the refrigerator door open?” On the news tonight, they said there’d been close to 200 emergency 911 calls because of traffic accidents in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Many were serious accidents. Bridges and overpasses are slick. Cars and trucks are sliding around like bumper cars in an amusement park. It won’t be any better during rush hour in the morning.

God bless us, everyone!
