Got here

We got here Tuesday and our part of the trip came off without a hitch however Gretchen's didn't quite. We were afraid we might get stuck in Philadelphia because of weather but thankfully we didn't. Poor Gretchen had a rough one. Her step-mom put her on the bus at Hagerstown, MD and it took her to Baltimore and she got stuck there from 10:30 until 5:00, her bus was supposed to leave at 3:25. When it didn't show another girl she met and was traveling with said that it wasn't coming and so Gretchen went to the window to ask and they were like well I guess it isn't running or something. Well Gretchen of course didn't accept that answer and said you have radios why don't you call them and find out what is going on and this was at about 3:40. The bus driver said we are leaving DC right now. The lady told Gretchen that it would take about 40 minutes to get to Baltimore, of course that didn't happen because they hit rush hour. At about 5 they left Baltimore and so by the time she got to Harrisburg it was an hour past her connecting bus to Williamsport. so here Don and I are driving to Harrisburg at 8 pm it took 2 hours to get there and 2 hours to get back so it was a very long day all around. Well we are all here and doing fine so that is the important thing. Unfortunately Timothy can't be here because he is in Iraq and Melissa can't because she just got a job and of course can't take the time off. Oh well. I have to go finish my Christmas shopping so I will update again in a day or so. Love you guys and Merry Christmas!

Another Finish

I had been working on this off and on for a quite a while. It was what I worked on while waiting at appointments. All that was done was the frog. Sitting while waiting for Don to have his scan done on Friday I got he briefcase, clock, exit sign and the wording done. We waited along time at the hospital as you can guess. I am going to have this framed and hang it in my office. I think it is cute. I am waiting for Don to ask me to do one for his office. His ladies are usually out the door at 5 on the nose, LOL. I am back working on the 12 days scissor pattern and am doing day 7 now. I am taking them with me on my trip back home for the Christmas holiday. I will let you know how they come along. I will also try and update this over the holidays if I can get access to a computer. If not, Hope you all have a great holdiday and yes I am saying this.......MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! Love you guys!

Well my boyfriend ended up not having the surgery. He called the Dr. to ask about a couple of things. He was concerned because of his sleep apnea and he felt he was getting a cold. Well, the Dr told him that he wasn't going to do the surgery because he saw something in the EKG that they did as a pre-op test and to not do anything at all not even go on a diet or walk as exercise before he went to his family Dr. Of course we got terribly concerned and we managed to get an appointment for the next day. Our family Dr sent us to a cardiologist. It seems he has an abnormal heart beat and a slightly enlarged heart on one side. He went for a stress test yesterday so we won't hear anything until after the holidays but we were told he could walk for exercise and our family Dr started him on a diet kind of like what I had been trying to get him to do. They say at this point not to worry that this may just be something he has had for years but still. Until after the holidays we will both be worried even if neither one of us says so. I will update as soon as we hear something, meanwhile we leave on Tuesday and they had to give him a special letter so that when we go through the airport security we won't have any problems because one of the medicines they used in the test has a radioactive quality that can set things off in security, this ought to be fun, LOL. I'll let you know if there is any excitement there.
If I don't get a chance to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS!! before then let me wish it now.

The Holidays

Well it is almost Christmas and this year I am going home to spend it with my family. I am excited. I don't get to do that and haven't spent the holidays with them in awhile. I will get to see snow at Christmas. YEAH!!!!!

This is a picture of my poor tree at my office. I am not having one at home this year since we are going to be gone. At my office though I figured I probably should.

My boyfriend is having surgery tomorrow so I won't be in my office at all probably. I know he is going to be fine, however he is freaking out. He has only once before had any kind of an operation and so he is uncomfortable. plus he has sleep apnea and is overweight so he is a little apprehensive about everything. I will let you know how that goes. Hope you have a great week.
