Random musings

I haven't been doing a very good job of posting lately...shame on me. I'm just enjoying my break from being a student and enjoying my son while he's out. It's nice to have a few less items on our plate for awhile.

My sis was in town last week and it was really nice seeing her. She always spoils my son when she's around (not that he needs more of that). Our niece performed in the Chocolate Nutcracker and the show was long awesome! My sister did something really awesome while she was here. Everyone knows I'm not the type to ask for help, especially if it involves money. This was going to be a lean Christmas and I was talking to my sis about that and told her all I was planning to buy my son was a bike (which is fine by me). She actually gave me the money for the bike and then turned around and paid for the bike herself plus gave me some money just for me,bills, food, whatever! I never would have asked her for that but I SO appreciate her for doing it. She also kept my car full of gas while she was here. I love her!...and not just because she did this very generous thing.

So, my mom ended up back in the hospital a couple of weeks ago and they thought she had an obstruction in her colon where the surgery was performed in June. Thankfully, that wasn't the case! The doc thinks she just picked up a virus and that was the cause of the vomiting and diarrhea.

Finally...Christmas is almost upon us. I just found out this morning that I will at least have the first part of the morning off on Sunday, which is good. Of course, I would rather be off all day (never worked Christmas in my life)but oh well, I'm happy for the morning off. Our family tradition is to meet at my mom's for breakfast and opening gifts.
