Christmas Time

My oldest son had a friend over tonight and I took them down to a place in town where they have lots of Christmas lights and music.  We had fun walking around viewing the lights and the kids got some hot chocolate. It was a great way to spend a Saturday night.

This week had its twists and turns.  For one, I wrote my PT appointment down on the wrong day.  I showed up for my appointment on time, but a day late.  Unfortunately, there was no room on my PT''s calendar to reschedule.  Then I had a phone appointment with my endometriosis doctor.  He got hung up with a patient, so I did not hear from him until 4 hours after my scheduled appointment.  The conversation went alright, but we were both tired.  I had to tell him that the PT has not made much difference.  I do wish that I could say differently.  Even so, I am going to hang with it till I move to give it a good try.

I spent one day of the week walking around in a fog.  This time of year has always been stressful for me.  Not only because of Christmas, but both the boys' birthdays are in December.  Load on top of that escrow, a garage sale, and a trip to Denver, and I think I have valid cause to be stressed.  As my realtor says, selling a house and moving is one of the most stressful things in our lives.

Friday afternoon, my Dusty kitty was enjoying herself in our backyard when all the sudden she burst through the sliding glass door that was left ajar.  She had spit hanging from her mouth and a wild look in her eye.  Then she started gagging like something was caught in her throat.  I had to leave her to pick the boys up from school.  We ended up taking her to the ER vet.  They checked her out and said she was fine, but she has a heart murmur.  We brought her home and praise the Lord in the morning she started eating again.  She is still having a little trouble with a cough here and there, but I pray she will heal from whatever happened.

We got the papers for escrow in the mail.  Our agent was in Hawaii this week, but he emailed us and let us know what is going on.  He told us the appraiser is coming on Tuesday.  Eek!  We need prayer!  My realtor told me that I have to make sure the house is looking good and it might be a good idea to bake cookies.  Hopefully, we can appraise at a good price.  Thursday the buyer is coming with an inspector.  In short, it is going to be a high stress week for me.

If I lived close enough, I would bring you a little tree all decorated. I just bought a little white one from Target for $2.50 and put turqoise blue bulbs on it...looks so cute!

You need a tiny tree.

Oh, no! I'm so sorry about the scare with your kitty after everything with poor Bun, and all the other stress. I will pray that she is fine, and that she'll make the move with no problem. I am keeping you in my prayers during this time, dear Becky.

The thought just struck me that there might be a doctor in Colorado that you really need to see - one who could really help you. I will pray so!

I know how it is having December birthdays (we also have two)!

Holding you in my heart and lifted up in prayer t/o the week, Becky. Take your days one by one, little steps, seeking Him and resting in His faithful embrace, dear friend.

So, when you move, I guess your name of your blog will change? Unless of course, your new home in CO. is blue!

You DO have a lot of reasons for stress! I am praying for you all. I hope you will have some moments of peace this week where you can truly relax and enjoy the season ...

My, I have missed out on a lot of news again! I am so glad that you have sold your house so quickly. I know that it is difficult to leave. I am praying that God will give you a special comfort and peace. I am praying that you will find the perfect place in Denver that will soon feel like home. Denver is a pretty place. I hope that you have a wonderful week full of blessings.
