Can I say I am a fan of Coldplay? Yes!
Such a lot of great things happening in the future. Christmas, of course. And an announcement that I am to become a new, first-time Grandmother! Yes, my youngest daughter is pregnant and will be giving birth to a daughter in June of 2009. We are very excited. She is continuing to finish her degree and working very hard to make excellent grades. Her apartment is on the third floor, so she must be cautious this winter walking up two flights of stairs. My oldest daughter is working in labor and delivery at Saint Francis. My son is majoring in Psychology and just celebrated his birthday last night.
I have had the strep throat this week. Every time I get sick anymore, I realize just how wonderful it is to be well again. At least I will be well before Christmas. I only put up a puny 6 foot tree this year. With all children away at apartments and being sick, I just didn't feel like going through the process of putting up my major tree and ornaments. But I have done well with shopping this year. I'm almost finished. I will mail two packages today and send cards and Friday, one more time of shopping for last minute gifts.
Merry Christmas, everyone! "God bless us, everyone," as Tiny Tim would say.
