So, after my last post, where I had a close brush with significant head trauma, I was forced to lay low for a week, resting and recovering. I am so very blessed to be here to say just how lucky I am that I came through that whole accident relatively unscathed. No brain bleed, no broken skull or bones, and I have healed up fully now.... praising God for His protection during that ordeal. :-)
However, with that, I also left my blog unattended for the past couple of weeks. Obviously, I wasn't feeling up to blogging while I was recovering. Then, we just got busy with the Thanksgiving weekend holiday, and headed out of town to Oregon, to celebrate with family. We enjoyed a nice, but rather short weekend in Oregon, and had Thanksgiving with my soon to be 94 year old grandfather, which is why we chose to go to Oregon..... it was really special, as it was very likely our last Thanksgiving we will spend with him here on earth.
We returned home late on Saturday night, the 26th, as I had to work on Sunday the 27th, couldn't get anyone to work for me this year. I managed to catch the start of a head cold while at work, and got hit with it hard starting on Monday afternoon. I have been miserable here at home the past two days now, and have not been productive really at all.....and am not happy about it!!! :-(
Still sick this morning, and didn't go meet Brad at the club to work out. But, the weather is supposed to be nice today and tomorrow, so I plan to get outside and put up our Christmas lights....it will be nice to do them in good weather for a change, and even nicer to have them up and on at the start of December this year!!! :-) Tracie is already getting the inside of the house fully decorated....and so, I would say that the Christmas season is now fully upon us here!!! :-)
My prayer for all of my family and friends is that we will all NOT get caught up this year in the commercialism of Christmas, but that we would rather truly celebrate the real Christmas...... the birthday of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!!! :-)
Now, if I can just get over this head cold, all will be well once again...... arrgh
