Mom, New Clothes and Christmas Trees!

On Wednesday afternoon they did an angiogram on my mom....during the procedure they determined that one of her arteries was 99 percent blocked! We were very thankful that she didn't require more extensive surgery. Late Thursday afternoon the hospital discharged her, and after six days of her continuously saying that she wanted to go home...this morning she was saying that maybe she should have stayed! Mom was having some anxiety over being home....after some nitro and some gravol she seemed to calm down. I'm sure that her anxiety was pretty normal, considering the surprise she had at having a heart attack!

We are all hoping that after awhile she'll be able to relax and her and dad will be able to get some rest. Poor dad hardly slept at all last week and now is quite exhausted.

Tonight, all four of my youngest kids went to the Christmas formal at our church...they were all dressed up and looked very grown up! Good grief...I felt old.....but I made up for it because while they were at the church, I went out and bought myself some new dressy clothes for hubby's company dinner tomorrow night...It's been about six years since I bought myself anything dressy so I must admit I felt a little guilty! My sister says that I deserve it though and that's good enough for me!

Tomorrow morning is Christmas Tree Hunt at the Christmas Tree Farm......it's to be about a kajillion degrees below zero....I'd better dig out the long johns!

I can't remember the last time I bought anything dressy.....maybe for my daughter's wedding 2 years ago. But I think your friend is right....you deserve to enjoy getting something nice for yourself. You will feel great at the party.

I can't imagine what it must be like to go through what you have been going through with your mom. I will say a prayer for her. I know those days come for everyone, but still, I don't know if you could ever really be prepared for it.

Not sure exactly where you are in Canada, but we are feeling that Canadian air all the way down in Texas already. Part of me really loves it, and my husband (from Minnesota) thinks he's in heaven. But then, he's not shovelling snow, just enjoying the crisp air.

Blessings, Rachel Anne

From longjohns to new dressy clothes. What a day!

Hope you were able to stay warm and enjoy the morning.

I hope your mom is OK now. What a week you've had. Dressy clothes sound nice. I have teaching clothes, but not any sexy, "I am woman" clothes. I hope you have a good time at the party.
