doing better...

DH got me a Santa sock monkey for CHRISTmas...
isn't he cute?

we ended up with 21 CHRISTmas cards this year...
the numbers drop off every year...
and this year, I think some just ran out of time...

got up feeling so much better and had some energy, so started puttering around here...
cleaning and dusting and putting things up...

looks like the old folks' home here...
and we feel like old folks this week...

my new angel...

and some of my fun things...
DH got me external speakers for the laptop...
love them...
and sock monkey ear muffs...
and Doug and Paula got me the candle...
I took a damp rag and laid it across the label this morning and soaked it off...
I can't wait to burn the candle...
its vanilla cookie...
and I can't wait to use the jar on something else!

done a little cooking and made lunch...
took the old man outside and put his butt in the wheel chair and pushed him awhile...
until I got tired...
we are going to go for a drive, so we can get out a bit...
its 51 out there now...
so not cold at all...
no snow...
its been gone awhile...

DH told me this morning to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers...
he reads my blog and every single comment...
he was so touched by your words that last couple of days...
and he said, make sure you tell them...
;)
with everything that went on the last four days...
we have had a wonderful CHRISTmas season....
and we had so much fun with the toy drive and buying toys and putting them out...
sneaking around and dropping some off...
we were all together for CHRISTmas eve and CHRISTmas day...
even though we took turns napping...
and we did our share of eating...
its going to be awhile before we take down the decorations...
and DH has an appointment Monday to see what is in store for next week...
I need to go back next Friday for a follow up...
so we are just going to kick back...
pop our pills, take naps and eat fudge...
have a fun weekend!
;)

How great you and your dh had a grand CHRISTmas celebration, and oh, that cute sock monkey and the ear muffs. I hope you have great healing this week.
And sometimes as a followup to Christmas cards, I send a second card to people, responding to what they wrote. I have lots of cards tee hee.

Wonderful to hear you had a great Christmas Tete. I love the sock monkey, he is just so cute (or is it a she?). Isn't good how a special candle can bring light into a somewhat dark day? Linda (over at lindas life journal - art lady) says she lights one after she cleans a room, i guess it is taking a moment to do something nice for yourself that feels so good?? Glad you are healing, keep taking the meds!
