Well, for us "black Friday" turned into a "black couple of weeks"! I did make it through shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving but did not buy much, except clothes for Jessica-who was the one that I really didn't need to buy for! Karen's girls went with us and they were ready to come home by 11 AM. Needless to say, we didn't get a whole lot of bargains. Since then I have gotten most of my shopping done. I am shooting to be finished when Jess get out of school next Thursday! I hope most everything will be done-except I always enjoy going and getting last minute things, You know the things that no one needs but you think would be sooo cute for them!
Between the shopping we have had our group from church over for lunch and had to replace our washing machine!!! Don't you just love to spend your Christmas money on a washing machine?!?! I did upgrade to a front loader which so far I am really enjoying. Hope our electric bill refects the savings that everyone says we should have!But it is fun to watch your clothes wash--I am easily entertained!!!!
Yesterday, they called me from Jessica's school and said she was shaking like she was having a hard chill but no fever! I picked her up and took her straight to the Dr. We were all afraid that it might be a seizure but it really didn't seem like one to anyone ( school nurse, teacher, asst. principal, or me). The Dr. sent us to get a full range of blood work done and then bakc to her office at 2. Finally decided on a bacterial infection somewhere. So we got 2 shots and a perscription. She seem to be better today but I kept her home since we have a follow-up at the Dr. in the AM at 8:45. Just let me say that with the shakes and the bacteria-it still has not slowed her down.
We're not finished yet...this morning our AC sstarted leaking and now the crew is out checking our unit. When it rains...it pours!
Though all of that our "stocking are hung" and our "halls are decked" so it is "beginning to look alot like Christmas" around our home. Hope all of you are enjoying the season and looking forward to spending time with your family and friends-we sure are!
