So much has been going on here that I can only say glad the holidays are over and good bye!.
We started the Christmas season a little down with news that my niece had breast cancer. She had a radical mastectomy/lymphectomy and reconstructive surgery. I couldn't believe that it was meant to be only a 2 day stay in the hospital. However, she didn't do well when she first came home and went back for another three days and came home on Christmas Eve. She is doing well now and has a long road of treatment ahead of her. She is about 40 and had her first mammo when they found tumors. In all she had seven that were fast growing. So, when you pray, please think of Sara. She is my daughter's age..they grew up together as my SIL lives two blocks away. I think that made it even harder for me than it would have been.
I had several crochet commissions that I completed before Christmas. I don't know why I didn' take pictures, and I always made a prayer lapghan for my niece.
While the kids were out of school, Corey's job was shut down for the holiday. This was a crazy house. Kyle was here almost everyday, and of course so was Brandi. AND Corey brought Terry and I a new pup. He was born in October. His father was a full blooded Boxer and the mother was a mixed bread so we aren't sure what his mix is. I'll post pictures in a couple of days. So, we have my two boys wrestling around, two dogs wrestling around, housebreaking, cooking, steady snow fall AND......Corey bought a Jeep Wrangler. It's an older model and he has plenty of ideas about what he wants to do to it. Since graduated from a auto body repair course with excellent skills, I guess it's natural that he would tear it apart and paint it etc.
See, its been a zoo here. Today I am home alone with only the dogs. I am totally recharging.
Oh, I want to mention that my final decision on a tablet was a Nexus 7. After checking with me to see what I decided on, Corey walked in the door a week or so before Christmas with my tablet. It was a nice surprise. I didn't want him to spend his money on me, but I know that he wanted to buy something for me that I really wanted so I gratefully accepted it and it made him so happy.
So, that's what's new. Come back in a day or two and see the new pup!
