Is everyone ready for Christmas????? So far I have all the presents purchased but haven't wrapped them. I also have not done my Christmas cards.... oh my!!!!
I spent last Tuesday through Thursday back in the hospital due to abdominal pains, low white blood count and anemia (the usual). My new year's resolution is to stay out of the hospital!!! After the first of the year I'll have a test done where I swallow this large capsule that is actually a camera. I'll wear a fanny pack for about 12 hours that contains the mechanism that records what the capsule/camera sees. It will check out my small and large intestine to see what in the world is going on in there. It will also check to see if there is any cancer in the small intestine. Today's technology.....

The weather here has been crazy. One day it's hot and the next day is cold. Everyone's allergies I'm sure are going nuts too. I know mine are.

Christmas will be busy this year as usual. Christmas Eve day will be spent with my mom and stepdad and my step aunt's house (she lives in the same subdivision as me). Then we'll head over to David's brother's house (luckily also in the same subdivision) and open presents and eat dinner. David's mom flew in from Pennsylvania last Tuesday. Then David and I will go to church for the Christmas Eve service (which is absolutely beautiful at our church). Christmas day we will get up and go to my grandma's for the day, then head back home that evening because David's mom is flying home the day after Christmas (we want to spend that last night visiting with her). So it'll be run, run, run.....

I finally set up an account on Facebook at my friend's urging. That website is so addicting!! I've gotten back in touch wtih many of my high school friends. I've had so much fun looking at everyone's photos. Facebook is similar to Myspace but I think a whole lot better. I don't like myspace. Facebook seems to be for an older generation like us. So if you are on Facebook or join it, email me and let me know so I can add you as one of my friends. email me at

Well, that's all for now. If I don't get a chance to post again this week...... I hope everyone has a very MERRY and BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!!! And I hope Santa leaves you lots of terrific presents!
