and she's back!

First, let me apologize. I ranted on about how depressed I've been and then I fall off the face of the planet for what feels like a year!! Sorry about that - not that I'm egotistical enough to think you're sitting at home twiddling your thumbs wondering....what's happened with her?!!?? Puhleeze.

Secondly, saw the doctor on Wednesday. Went great!! I've started a new medication that is actually for migraines! Seems to be doing the trick. The wonderful side effect is that it knocks me out! I take it around 8PM and I am out like a log by 10PM!! So I guess that means I'll have to get my work done either via computer or here at home before then. AND, I've now gone five whole days with no headaches! That, in and of itself, is nothing short of miraculous. I'm not feeling like I'm in the abyss of gloom and despair. I'm back to my normal, silly self.

Thirdly, I have succumbed to the pressure of Christmas! My tree is up. The lights and stockings are hung. The wreath is on the door. I even have ornaments in the kids' bathrooms!! My kids have a stuffed Rudolph who sings and they are joyously singing 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer' 24-7 and so far, I haven't had the urge to THROW the reindeer out the window! LOL

I even got up at 4AM on Friday to head to the toy store - mistake. Left and went to Target where I purchased a ton of movies for next to nothing and then to Michael's where I made out like a bandit! So fun.

I've been reading your blogs, and everyone made these beautiful lists of the many things they are thankful for. Well, I don't really have time for that but I will highlight the things I am truly thankful for.
1. My hubcaps thinks I'm cute and silly and puts up with a lot of my crap; 2. I have THE most adorable kids on the entire planet - they break my heart every day with the things they come up with like when Little Prince says to the Princess "K, I'm so lucky to be your big bwother" (that's how he says it!) - brought tears to my eyes!; 3. I attend a great church that is supportive and FUN and a pleasure to be a part of; 4. My friends and my family. You're always there for me to vent to, complain at and be a pain to. Thank you.

I hope all of you had a wonderful, safe, love-filled Thanksgiving. Peace.

Oh I'm so glad you're feeling better and that your trip to the doc was beneficial! That makes me happy!

Glad you had fun and made out like a bandit on Black Friday. Me too. Loads of fun.

Sounds like you have an awesome family.

Happiest holidays!
