Woo-hoo! It's Friday!

Finished the majority of my shopping today. Just need to pick up 1 or 2 more little things. I am happy! My socks for Ansley are going very well and I hope to have the first pair finished tonight and the second pair started. I have so much to do this weekend to get the house cleaned for Christmas. I am not expecting anyone, but I still want things to be clean. I have several knitting project started and in process and I am mailing off a swap package this weekend. Busy, as always. I think that Mom is doing a little better since the DR changed a couple of her meds and added some additional vitamins. I hope she continues to improve. I want to get back on our regular schedule. I like routine and structure and we have not had that for quite some time now. til next time~~

The Holidays

Well, it is December 11 and I can't tell you what happened between today and August 28. That was the last time that I posted. My Mom's dementia is getting worse every day. I am amazed at how fast she has regressed. It is a full time job just taking care of her, and I still work full time. So, needless to say, I have been a little busy. But, I need outlets for my energy and creativity, little as there is, so I am going to try in January to start blogging at least once a week. Just to keep up with all my blogging friends and to feel sort of like a normal person. The holidays are here and I have done very little decorating. As much as I love the season, I am just not inspired to go all out. We had Christmas with our children and grandchildren, 4 of the 5 anyway, this past weekend and it was the best weekend I have had in a very long time. Peaceful, noisy, friendly, warm and inviting. It was wonderful! All that we have left now, is company parties and hopefully they will be over this weekend. We will be home free after that. I think it will be a little sad on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day that it will only be the 3 of us, but we will make the best of it, and hopefully, get some needed rest. I am off to start my day! Take care~~~
