Happy New Year's

Since we are all sick with cough, colds and/or flu we are having a family game night and staying in and watching movies. I haven't been able to hold my head up to stitch at all and have not had a voice for 3 days now my throat is so sore but no strep just drainage and irritation. Night is the worst because I get so dry.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a safe, HEALTHY and happy new year. My New Year's Resolution - NOT to be sick NEXT New Year's!!!!

I'm Back!

We got in at 12:30 AM this morning from Oklahomas. We drove straight through. It was an exhausting drive since I had to drive it all myself. Dd is getting around better but still can't drive. We just keep her wheelchair in the car now and she uses crutches in the house. We had a great time in OK eating all our favorite foods and visiting family. We made it to Edmond to visit Great Grandma. Also, my first great niece was born while we were there - great timing huh? I finished all my shopping and even managed a short trip to Silver Needle and bought two complete kits. I could shop for hours in that store! We visited a cemetery that my grandma remember in Edmond that turned out to have several of our ancestors buried there. I took some pictures to add to the tree file. It was so strange seeing them. I still have to shower, unpack and finish wrapping....sigh!!!

I am so tired!

Tonight is the last final for this semester. As usual students are bickering over their grades and once again mostly for plagiarism and not following instructions. I will be so glad when tomorrow comes. I am getting my usual end of the semester illness too - scratchy throat and achy! I truly do not understand why it is so hard to follow instructions and they are not hard instructions either.
With dd in a wheelchair now it has been a real pain getting around and around the house as well. She is also wearing one of those space boots that inflates and deflates but weighs a ton. She is taking her last final as I type. We hope to leave for Oklahoma sometime next week after grades and laundry and rest!!!

It is the last day of classes for this semester. I still have finals next week but no more lectures! But lots of grading to do. I hope to get a lot of it finished tomorrow. It is raining and cold here so it will be a perfect night and day tomorrow to hunker down and get some work done, listening to my Celtic Thunder and Christmas playlist of course. Maybe just maybe I will be able to stitch a little this weekend, wow - what a thought!

Chinchilla, Falsetto, Festival and Tissue

What do these words have in common? These are the words my ds spelled correctly today to win the school spelling bee!! He advances on to the county level in January. It was more nerve wracking than watching an OU football game...against Texas!!!

How did I spend the evening you ask?

Why in the ER of course! My dd has been having dizzy spells for the past week. She passed out in class, fell face first on the floor at work and tonight fell down the stairs. They ran every test and did every scan possible. The only explanation is Vertigo or something else in her inner ears. She now has a cast on her foot/ankle and is on crutches which are really fun when you are dizzy all the time. So tomorrow will be spent running from one dr to another. I missed my class tonight and will miss tomorrow as well. I hate that but she takes priority! Well, I better get some sleep. What is it about ER's that are so exhausting?
