Taking a break.

Bet you thought I was going to stop posting with the title huh?  Nope, you're all stuck with me. 
This time of year is so busy I wonder where you all find the time to post so often.  Had two Dr.s appointment this month.  First for the eye doc for  a check on the eyes (cataract surgery 6 mo ago) and eveything is just great.  Don't have to see her for another year.  The the dermatologist for a 6 mo. checkup.  So far so good.  Now I'll start the year off with the yearly trip to the heart doc and that should be it until next Nov.  Hope this one goes as good as all the others I've had.  
 I don't know if I ever explained why I see him.  A few years ago I noticed my left eye was funny.  Vision was like looking through cracked glass or a broken dirty screen.  Not quite sure how to describe it.  Went to eye doctor and she ran all sorts of tests, check for diabetes--no, ran dye up my arm--went just fine took a temporal artery biopsy--no trouble, did and MRI--found nothing so she sent me to Dr. Leo.  He order ekg, eeg, and a carotid artery ultrasound.  All tests came back normal, but I go yearly to make sure there is no change.  Ok by me.  Just had a real good friend have a heart attack Fri, and it's not looking to good at the moment.
Went and did my Christmas shopping.  Had to take my husband as my SISTER'S WENT WITHOUT ME.  Yup, they abandoned me.  Would you believe it of them.  Well it happened like this.  They all have grandkids in the same school in the early grades.  They went to the Christmas program and while there decided a shopping trip and lunch was in order.  None of them though to call and see if I wanted to go, no not a single one.  Of course I had to give them the business about it (all good-natured of course).  They each tried to the blame the other for their forgetfulness. 
While shopping we stopped at the jewelers and had my rings checked.  Well the stones were loose in two of them and had to leave them there.  Isn't it funny how such a little thing missing for ever a few days can make a person feel naked?  Well I have one back now and the other will be ready after Christmas. Will take my mothers ring in when I pick it up as it has a crack in it and would like to know if they can fix that. 
Guess I had better get back to work.  There's still so much to clean up now that the bathrooms done along with the holiday fixin's. 
Merry Christmas and God Bless You All!
