Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas world!

Hope everyone is having an amazing day!

Got the greatest gift ever. A photo book of the slideshow from our wedding. It is amazing. I will take pictures one day and post them on here.

I think I have strep throat. I will probably spend my night in the hospital.

That sucks.

Good day though. Time for breakfast!

Not cool

I am on holidays and I am sick. Not just a little sick. Like aches and pains, fever, puking, coughing so stuffed up I can hardly breathe sick. Today is day three of this. I am supposed to be singing and laughing and visiting and I am sooooooo sick.

This sucks.

But my hosts are gracious and love me and are doing everything they can to make me happy. I feel like a bum. I need a hot bathtub and a hot water bottle and a tv and a bed and some love.

This sucks.

Not sure.

I am not sure what to think.

Good news? I got a phone call this morning and got to go in for my ultrasound today. I had to drink four and a half litres of fluids in two hours. It sucked. I almost peed my pants and it hurt really bad. Man, I can't imagine doing that one again soon.

Thank you God for the break. I needed something to happen. Life is just full of no answers right now.

It was weird though. The ultrasound technician kept asking me really weird questions and when I asked him why, he avoided my glaze like you would not believe. He then asked if he could take extra pictures for the doctor. He took pics of my kidneys and all kinds of things. It was weird.

Should I be concerned?

He then told me to make sure I phoned my doctor on Monday morning.


Nothing is easy.

But, I am doing OK. I am kinda prepared for the worst and not sure what to expect. I know that I am thinking really negative, but if you knew my luck with these sorts of things? You would understand. Sad enough, even Chad asked what the worst that could happen was. Sad. I know.

Hmmmmmm........ wonder what will happen on Monday.

I cleaned my house today.

I got down on my hands and knees and spent a few hours making sure that the entire house was clean. It felt so good. Part of losing the jobs, was losing the house cleaner that came weekly. That was a sad day.

Tonight, I am watching "Hoarders".

Have you guys watched that show? It is so disturbing. It is about people that have OCD and are compulsive hoarders. It is crazy. I feel so bad for these people. I feel bad for their families. The one lady? She was so disconnected from her children that her son left for the war without saying goodbye.

I am sitting here watching it and thinking of some of my family. No one is that bad, but man alive! I wonder sometimes if I have a few hoarders in my life. My mom kept a lot. Everyone always said how organized and clean she was. When she died? We realized that she was just an organized pack rat. She had things that I won't even type here for the embarrassment of it. It was insane.

I try so hard to not be a pack rat. Husband throws everything out. It is almost funny! He hates mess and clutter and makes sure that he gets rid of a lot. I have gotten a lot better as well. I used to keep everything. I would keep crap that I had no right to keep! You should have seen it when I got married. It was nuts. I spent many days packing all my important crap. I packed it all to Husbands basement suite. He then made me go through everything and throw most of it out! It was infuriating and now I am so grateful.

Husband taught me to value the important things in life. To not keep the old cards, and papers, and clothes and things that people have given me. They are not important. The people were important. I have taken pictures of a lot of things that were very precious to me in my life. I now can look at them and see the memory instead of having it in the box in the basement that never gets looked at anyways!

I now go through my house at least once or twice a year and get rid of stuff. Things I don't wear, garbage, stuff that I could donate and that someone else would like. I give a lot of stuff away.

It feels good.

I love it.

I can't imagine living like that.

I am not doing good today.

I had no idea the emotions that could come on days like this when you have finally started dealing with emotions.

I hate it.

I am on the verge of tears. I have cried so many times today.

I wrapped all my Christmas presents.

I just want to hug Chad.

He is off playing xbox with the roommate.

I hate it.

I need him today.

He isn't noticing.

I am not strong enough today to ask for help.

Tomorrow will be a better day.

Tomorrow I will be happy.

I wish it was tomorrow.

Tomorrow was my mom's birthday.

She was killed in a car accident almost two years ago.

I miss her.

These last few months, I have been dealing with a lot. I am learning to set boundaries and all that other stuff. One of the things that I dealt with was the death of my mom and my forgiveness to her for all the hurt that I have. She might have hurt me and caused me a lot of pain, but she tried. She loved me in her own way and tried her hardest to do what she thought was right most of the time. I truly believe this now. Tomorrow is her birthday. She would have been 55. She was really young when she died. It was very tragic and hard to accept. It was insane. She was on black ice, lost control, and was thrown into oncoming traffic which happened to be a semi truck. He did everything in his power to avoid her. He tried so hard. The poor guy. I feel sorry for him. I heard later that he phoned 911 and that the call was insane.

Tomorrow was her birthday.

I miss her.

I don't do well with waiting.

I hate it.

I was supposed to go for my ultrasound today. I drank my two litres of water, waited all freakin' day, and then they told me I had to drink more.

Now I have to wait even longer. Hopefully I will end up with an appointment soon.

We have been asked by our boss to wait awhile longer to find out if we are getting a severance package. It is the difference between working two jobs in January and scratching by to come up with medication money this next year and freedom to work one job each and have breathing room.

We have also been asked to wait before we find other jobs while he tries to figure out if there is any way that he can possibly keep the company going. For some reason, we are not feeling like any of this is very fun to wait on. Spending a lot of time with a tummy ache right now.

I am trying to open another restaurant. I am putting together a proposal for a public building in town. I was supposed to know about the results by Christmas. I was now told that I have to wait till beginning of February.

Have I mentioned that I don't like not having answers? Do you think that maybe God is trying to teach me patience? Maybe? to trust him?


Still don't like it though.
