Today Was a Good Day!

My Dad is still in pain. No results from the biopsy yet. John's Dad is better. I am better. It will all be better someday! LOL! It always pours here when it rains. If you've been reading here for long you know what I mean. I had a lot to get done and was proud to get almost all of it completed. Things have been on survival mode the last 4 weeks since surgery. Here's what I did:

  • Cleaned out like never before and came up with 11 boxes of things and food to donate to the HH (thrift store, food bank and service for school children in need of winter clothes and toys)
  • 12 YES 12 loads of laundry
  • Mailed 54 Christmas cards and I am only through letter H
  • Checked the mail
  • Vomited some of the morning from not eating with my new med (the script said to take on an empty tummy......NOT! TMI-sorry
  • Redid my blog design
  • Made menu plan for December
  • Finished N.S.'s mix order
  • Made labels
  • emptied dw and loaded it back
  • cooked supper
  • Took out 3 bags of garbage
  • Decorated the house for Christmas except for the the tree and the boys' trees
  • Put away yesterday's groceries
  • Baked a spiral sliced ham
  • Wrote out checks and paid my parent's bills at their office
  • Cleaned out the extra fridge in the utility room
  • Put a bushel of apples in the clean fridge for this winter

I think that was all. I feel so much better being able to do and take care of things. I hope you all had a wonderful day as well.

The boys have a cough, a bad cough. I imagine I will be calling the doctor tomorrow, as Little John's is bad enough that it is causing him to wake up. He is taking a prescription cough med but I think he might need an antibiotic too. He was sneezing tonight and the green yuckies were coming from his nose. Mason has the green too. Please say a little prayer for them and my Dad too. Thanks so much!

Have a blessed night and sweet dreams!!!

So glad to hear things have subsided a bit for you! I am so excited to see all you had done yesterday . . . wow, I bet you were exhausted last night!

Laundry is the name of the game for me today!

I am also going to put in an order with you . . . are you up to it?

Hugs and love

I'm glad you're feeling better, and that everyone seems to be doing better. If you don't mind my asking, what medication did you take that made you throw up? There are some things that say you should take them on an empty stomach, but I would NEVER recommend it!

So very glad to hear things are better and I just love your new blog design! Hugs :)

It's great tp hear that you are doing better. Take it easy!

Nikki said...

Ooh, Marva, I had a feeling that was it. It really messed up my stomach when I took it once without food. Just don't take it within two hours of dairy products or vitamins; they will keep it from being absorbed.

Glad you're better! Apparently you are able to lift more than 5 lbs now? Still praying for you and the crew. Have a great rest of the week!

You really are SUPER-woman even when you're sick! I'm happy to hear you're gradually recovering. Just don't overdue it (yep, I'm quite the nagger;).

We'll keep praying for your Dad, and the boys as well. Hoping everyone gets feeling better very soon!~

Hi there, just want to make sure you received my order.

Have a great night.

Love the background design! I've had a stressful week. We are moved into our new house but boxes are everywhere. sooo hard to find time to unpack anything with two little boys at my feet constantly. Patience has taken on a new level for me at this point. I'm taking a time out tonight to go see Santa at our local Y. I have no holiday spirit yet! Been too busy!
