It's the weekend..

Wow I can't believe I haven't posted in a month and a half. Things have been wild around here. I seem to be going non stop and never any time to relax and unwind. Hopefully after the New Year things will slow down a bit. The holidays are always a struggle for me and my family. It seems always something gets in the way of making it a great holiday.

I was in a car wreck a few weeks ago. I thankfully walked away but I am still having some problems with my neck and back. The guy who hit me t-boned me in my side. Luckily he hit more towards the backseat and not me. I start therapy on Monday. My car is totaled leaving us with nothing to drive. Times are hard so Jeff being the barter person he is. Bartered an older laptop and gave the guy a little money for a car. Unfortunately the transmission went out so now we had to fix that. I know in my heart things will get better but gosh what else is going to happen? I am already a worry wart anyway so this really bugs me. I just feel blessed Amber wasn't with me when this happened.

My mom is having some difficulties and she isn't being too compliant with her diabetes. She is not eating like she should and letting her sugar get too low. I spent some time with her yesterday. We went to a craft bazaar at the church and got some great ideas for my grandma to keep her busy. But when we got back to her house she wasn't acting right. So I made her something to eat. It took her a while to eat it but after about an hour or so she started acting alright. I have been getting onto her about not eating a full meal and in between meals. She needs to eat more. :( I just hope we don't have to spend Christmas in the hospital like we did last year. My grandmother was in the hospital on Christmas and then after New Year's my Mom was in the hospital. It wasn't a good holiday let me tell you.

Onto good news Amber has her first band program at school on Tuesday. She is a little nervous but I know she will do good. I am proud of her. She plays clarinet and she is first year band. They are playing three Christmas songs and Amber knows them all pretty well and plays great.

Well that is all that is really going on now, just alot of chaos before the holidays. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.
