Cheer up girl...the new year is only starting. Lots of wonderful and exciting things will still happen. I think the "flu" or bug epidemic there in the US has been terrible this year. Heck even my father in law had it for a week...He coudnt shake off his cough and fever. After several shots...he finally rid of it last week, thank God!
Hope you guys are feeling much much better now. Kids are okay now too? Rest up my dear friend...dont forget lots of fluids. endo p***ed me off. Im hoping to find one by next week to get a new batch of blood works for the year. I hadn't had any since September of last year. So Im supposed to have another last December...but that's when my dilemma with my doctor started. Oh well...

Happy new year dear Doris! Been wondering what on earth you up too...hmmm? Is everything okay? How have you been? Im doing pretty good. Since I lost snowy...its been pretty sad every time we go for walks and travels. I miss her so much. Im also scouting for a new endo doctor. My old one p***ed me off. Its a long story...Id tell you about it next time. It's been a dreary rainy cool January here. I love the coolness...I hate the rain. I guess better that than 98F scourging heat huh.

Hello Doris. I think I am getting Russ's cold. I feel miserable. He had his nose finished yesterday. Tom saw it and says it looks great. I cannot as he is all bandaged,. He takes the bandage off for good tonight. Has to clean with peroxide and add a salve BUT if he goes out he has to cover it. This started 12'/3 ended 1/3. He goes back Wed to get stitches out. My BG 104. I pray I do not get that awful cough. Dark dreary drizzle here. Hope you and Ken both doing well. Still have to take down the tree. Take good care and give Keb my best. You babysitting? Hugs,Reed

Here we go again,Doris. Another year. HAPPY NEW YEAR. May the year 2013 be a good and healthy one for us all. I have been up since 5. Russ has a wicked cold but the coughing is non stop. I hope they do not cancel the final surgery on his nose tomorrow. BG 106. TOPS today. I bet there will be a lot of gains. How are you doing? Your Readings pretty good? And my friend Ken is he doing ok? Give him my best. Did you get any snow? Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Doris. Feeling better as it must have been a 24 hour thing. You going to your Grandmothers for Christmas or are they all coming to you. It will be just the three of us. I have decided on a roast loin of pork. This is funny. Tom shaved the flap on Russ's nose as it was hairy. I guess they are going to use that FINALLY in the reconstruction Jan 2. How is Ken doing? Give him my best. A most Blessed and joyous holiday to you both. HUGS,Reed

Afternoon your lovely card! Thanks so much....mailing mine today, so will be late. I apologize, and hang my head in shame.
Really...I have NEVER been this late in sending my cards....but you know how CRAZY it's been!!
Everything seems to be in slow motion this year...the tree is up...but need to be COMPLETELY decorated! I'm waiting for Len to install the new element in the oven before doing my baking!
We have no snow! Was hoping for at least a dusting for Christmas....2 days left, who knows...might have a record snow fall!
Gotta go...
luv and baskets of hugs,
linda ♥

Good Morning,Doris. We had a heavy rain last night and then a cold front rolled in. BRRR it is 40 degrees. Tom is here until New Years. Russ hates the way his nose it thinks everyone gawking at him but I got him into the department store. I think I hope they finish the reconstruction on Jan 2. I have the foot doctor at 1. My BG 108. Hope your readings are good. Give my very best to Ken. It was so good to hear from Kathy. Have a good day. HUGS,Reed

Timothy is home earlier than anticipated, so that means his place of work will not pay him for the time off while in the hosp. and recuperating. Apparently they cover the time frame if you're in the hospital for a minimum of 2 days!! So, he's on pain meds...and feeling very edgy due to not smoking. I'm urging him to talk to the doc re the patch or something to take him over the hump.
As for myself...I'm done with school now, for Christmas Break. Will be back in the thick of it on January 7th. BUT...that is THEN!! For now...I am HOME SWEET HOME!
First on the list tomorrow after sleeping in till 9, and then (after coffee of course)....the Christmas cards!! Then...getting a new element for my oven. No element = no turkey!! Gifts....gotta buy 4 more...and wrap them.
Must finish decorating the tree. The kids are coming here on Christmas eve....everyone bringing something.
