Day After

Well it is the day after Christmas and all nice and quiet. 3 weeks today at this point Ablation #4 will be in the books. Hopefully this time things will be better and the trick will be found for awhile. Hopefully time will not drag too much.

Well Mackenzie was here for Christmas. She got lots of stuff as did we all. I got a few things I wasn't expecting which was nice.

For the last few weeks I have been working on my Halloween Gameboard. It is coming along quite nicely might I add. The spider webs in the black squares are not as hard as I thought they were going to be which is good since they are half the board. Here is a picture taken tonight of my progress.

I took a picture tonight cause I had to move my hoop again.

In the next few days I will post Christmas pictures. We still have visiting to do so I might have some pictures from there too. Probably from Aunt Mame's since Tracey will be there.

Well off to check the emails and then to watch the hockey game.

Christmas Eve

Well the big day will be here in less than 3 hours. Doesn't really seem like Christmas. Don't know why. Mom and I made the french toast for breakfast tomorrow. Now all we have to do is make dinner. Been busy stitching on my Halloween game board lately have a good chunk done. I think it will take me at least till the end of January to finish it. That is ok I have the main pieces done for now anyway. Just have to put the name and date in the birth announcement but still have to wait for that information now.

Oh funny story here. Sitting a few days ago with Mackenzie she was watching tv and I was sewing. So she decides she is going to help me sew and turns the tv off and sits beside me (well on top of me actually) and the conversation goes like this.

Mac: Auntie Kathy
Kathy: yes Mackenzie
Mac: can I have a treat
Kathy: yes what would you like?
Mac: can I have a gingerbread cookie
Kathy: yes

Kathy: have you brushed your teeth today?
Mack: no
Kathy: well when you are done you should brush you teeth to get the extra sugar off them
Mac: ok I don't want to get any more cavities
Kathy: right
Mac: yeah like 84 cavities
Kathy: wow that is an awful lot of cavities
Mac: yeah that would be one in every tooth I have
Kathy: I don't think you have 84 teeth
Mac: How many teeth do you have Auntie Kathy
Kathy: I am not sure but I don't think it is 84
Mac: Auntie Kathy
Kathy: yes
Mac: do you believe in Jesus?
Kathy: yes
Mac: well if you believe in Jesus then you believe I have 84 teeth.

Off on to the next topic we went. How do you respond to something like that?

Well off to bed now.

The big day is comming

Well we finially have our tree up. Some presents are wrapped and under the tree. the card tree is getting full as is the tv stand of cards. I still have about 20 more to come. Seems like our mailman only delivers everyother day or so. No new cards today maybe tomorrow.

Mac asked to have a new storey CD cause she has listened to the one she has now for awhile. I am now downloading the stories and she will help me pick them later..

Mackenzie wrapped some of her Christmas presents tonight and we will finish the rest probably tomorrow.

Well heading to bed now.

Halloween SAL

Well now that all my other projects are done for this year I can work on my checker board. I have been working really hard on it and I made a mistake. I am fixing it up. This pic is not very good will try and get a better one tomorrow.

Have to pay more attention to what I am doing and not everything else that is going on around me.

Tonight Mackenzie decorated some gingerbread men. That was interesting. Got some pics of them before they get demolished. A few weeks ago I guess her and I made a gingerbread house. Well what a task that was getting the house to stay together. Then we had a few mice that got at the house and in trouble. Apparently they couldn't wait till Christmas. But since it is decorated it has not been touched. Soon it will be demolished as well as the men.

I got a date

Finally today I got a date for my Ablation. It will be done on Friday January 25, 2008. One month to wait. Well we are starting on a streak again but hopefully it has ended as fast as it started.

I finished the birth announcement yesterday all but the name and date. Now just have to wait for the kid to be born.

Now I am working on my Halloween Gameboard. I hope to have that finishe by December 31 but there is alot of work left to do so it might be tight.

New Day

Well it has been awhile since I posted last. Been really sick and busy lately. I have been working on the birth announcement and am about half finished. I will have to scan a pic in maybe tomorrow. Once it is done then I have to decide what colour beads I am going to use. I still like the multi-colour blue I had picked out but we shall see. Hopefully the announcement will be done this week so that I can get back to working on my Halloween game board.

Well it is bed time trying desperatly to get rid of this cold so that when I get the call I can go to the hospital with no issues. Still don't have a date and they still haven't called me back. So next week I will have to call and see what is up.

So far so good

As far as I know I have not been out of rhythm today. But there is still time. Things in this house are just goign form bad to worse. Dad has decided he is going to do what he wants which is not listen. He is not allowed to use his cane cause he is not steady enough BUT know we keep insting on useing it. I am afraid my mom is going to either have a nervous break down or a heart attack because of my father. She told him tonight she would be out of the house by the end of the month. That means I go too. I hope dad smartens up and we don't have to leave but knowing him things probably wont change.

YEAH a finish

Well today I finished the wedding announcement. Now I can start the birth announcement.

Day 5 and counting for going out of rhythm. Still waiting for Toronto to call back with a date for January. Think I am coming down with a cold. Better not be I can't afford to get sick.

Dad came home today. He is off to a wonderful start. Decided he didn't need the walker and fell. Maybe he will learn.

Off to watch House now. One of my favorite shows.

Another bad day

Well this is day 4 of being out of rhythm. Wonder how many days we can go. None would be nice. I upped my meds again and they don't seem to be doing much. I have a call in to the EP so hopefully tomorrow I will hear something.

I have almost finished the wedding announcement I am working on. Should be done tomorrow and the I can start on the Birth Announcement. Will post a pic when I finish the wedding one and will have WIP pics of the birth one. Then I want to finish my Halloween gameboard and then we shall see what is next.
