I've missed everyone so much! I do hope that each of you have had a wonderful and blessed Christmas. We did! The sad thing is that so many are very ill right now...upper respiratory problems, flu, sinus infections, ear infections, you name it. My daughter and good friends all got sick Christmas evening and it has been horrid for them.
I have been fine, except for my knees. I guess I sound like a broken record but they have hurt soooo bad! Yesterday, I was in tears most of the day. Called the Dr and could not get in, nor today either. Hopefully, they can work me in tomorrow. We had a rainy weather front move through so it's obvious it really bothered me...today is better but I'm being very careful.
Didn't sleep much at all last night...I remember turning off the TV about 4:30 a.m. At 8:45 a.m. the maintenance man woke me up. Due to the heavy rains during the night and the slope of the land near my guest bedroom (which I'm making mine) there was water coming in the closet. :-( He moved everything off the floor and took the pad up. I then found water in the adjoining bath. I've used a jillion towels today soaking that up. I wash & dry the towels and then use them again. Not fun! The carpet company came earlier and used a wet vac. Said they will return in a couple of days to replace all the carpeting and pad in that area.
I still don't have everything in its place and that's getting old! I'm sure you're sick of hearing/reading about it too. :-)
There are always situations that are worse...the snowstorms in the northeast & midwest, fires that drive folks from their homes, accidents, etc. I try to allow myself up to 30 minutes for my pity parties, cry fests, etc., when it becomes overwhelming and then I draw the line and get back to reality!
I'm so looking forward to an organized home, flexible/painless knees and a new year that will bring lots of laughter, love, abundance, joy and happiness. I send you blessings and love!
