My uncle finished his CyberKnife radiation today and the tumor behind his ear is already shrinking. It's been a WONDERFUL week!

Getting to my second school was interesting today. Three of the routes I know were flooded. I ended up driving through about 4-6 inches of water to get to the school, and it was not fun.

And I totally missed that shout-out in the question! Thanks, friend! My fiancé (Dooglr - follow him) and the wedding planning has been the good in this week.

Wonderful. Let me know if I can help. We drove to Dallas today. Wasn't too bad. Rivers very high.

It's been a good week. I got officially taken off of the house so that's one last bit of paperwork that needed to be done before the sale. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed & I have SOOO much to do. I'm going to clean out one bedroom & use it to put my things in and pack. The auction company put up signs today! Nervous & excited!

Oh yes of course. I was hoping someone in addition but that would be too soon.

I feel as if I've been hibernating all week. It's pretty cold and we had a lot of snow, so I haven't been out much. I didn't make it to the weight doctor Tuesday when we had a record snowfall... I was lying in bed trying to decide which was less depressing: walking 3 miles through 8" of snow on top of ice, with the lights not working at the most horrendous intersection I need to cross; or trying to coordinate the 3 buses it takes to get there, one of which runs only once an hour. Then the doctor's office called to cancel. Oddly, I'm regretting missing the walk.

But I did do the usual Thursday shopping with my kids yesterday, & we did planning for our most untraditional Christmas dinner ever - salmon and rice (cauliflower "rice" for me), and a vegetarian lasagna. None of the traditional sides. Who cares as long as it's good food.

Oh, definitely that, yes. That's the main reason we get together.

Mixed bag. My oldest flies in Sunday..yay! But I won't get to have my boys all here for Christmas because one DIL has decided that she can't miss any of her family get togethers that are on the 24th, 25th and 26th. I have mine on the 24th. Her nephew is only going to be there for the 24th and nevermind that she sees him every other week and the last time all of my boys were together was 8 months ago. I'm beyond pissed.

I'm in the process of moving up at my job. I finished the semester. Still battling against myself whether or not I should apply to Georgetown again. A lot of work done this past week. I still need to buy some presents, but I'm looking forward to my vacation in January. I'm losing money on JetBlue stock unfortunately. Wishy Washy week, so far I have a 3.85 thanks to one A- but I'm still waiting on 2 more grades. We'll see what happens.

Kinda bad. My brother's wife and one daughter was in a car accident. Thankfully just concussions, car totaled. And my uncle just found out he may have lung and kidney cancer. Ugh...

We last part of a roof and it rained on the inside on the wall.😬 Last night my husband and I decided to take a walk The wind came up and I'm also got blown over. Someone stop to offer us a ride. I guess you figured we were homeless or a carless. The good news, I'm pretty sure the drought is over.

It's been rough overall; but yesterday my nephew returned to the US from Afghanistan, so that trumps all the trials of this past week. We are so thankful to have him back!!!
