I'm copying this format from Christy at Planes, Trains and Running Shoes. I always like
her posts like this so I'm going to copy!
Feeling...all over the place. Mosty sad. My brother is in the hospital pretty sick. I'm
putting this out there as he could use all the positive thoughts and prayers you want to
send. He was supposed to have surgery today but now it is next Tuesday. Please please
please don't let him get pneumonia in the meantime.
Feeling... extremely grateful for the wonderful people I work with. Last Monday when my brother
was first admitted to ICU colleagues IMMEDIATELY took over my classroom so I could leave.
No time spent making plans- just left! Everyone is willing to help anytime I need to go.
Feeling... even more grateful for my son and all his support. He lives near the hospital and is going
to be able to go visit while I fight this nasty cold during the coming storm.
Reading... Pay it Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde. . She is a favorite author and I needed
a light book.
Eating... everything.... I'm having a hard time getting my eating under control. After the
Watching... I recently finished Nashville Season 2. Love that series. Love it! I love
Declan and Reena.
Working on... getting gifts ready to mail across the country. It's going to be my first
Christmas without Emily. Another reason tears are near the surface ready to spill out at a
moment's notice. I love Christmas. Love it. This year it is going to be so different.
Anticipating... next week when Dennis can have his surgery and move on.
Sorry this isn't a more positive post.
On a lighter note I did the Santa 5K this weekend and that was fun. It was also fun to drive
to the hospital and walk in in my Santa costume. I wasn't the only one. There were 1500
Santas around that day!
