Oh, Vikki Jo, so sorry to read about your challenging day yesterday! I hope you still manage to find the cell phone, hope the bed will work for you despite being on the floor and I will pray for your FIL, that his surgery goes well and the recovery is speedy and uneventful. As I nurse, I have seen many people who had bypass surgery and most of them do very, very well.
Sharon, good for you girl! You are way ahead of the curve! I still need to finish October and then get on to making November, and then still need to stamp the insides!

It feels so good to have my cards finished. Now I just need to write notes in them and address the envelopes.

Sheri, I usually write a newsletter highlighting the important events in my family's life in the past year (I write one in English and one in Dutch) and enclose it with the card, which I just write a one line greeting and sign. I write the two letters and photocopy them. A bit generic, I know, but that way everyone is kept up to date. I have lots of praise notes this year, what with retiring from work (and enjoying it) and two new grandsons. Yes, the latest one has arrived. His name is Lief, born on Nov. 11, weighing in at 9 pounds, 8 ounces!!

Congratulations Ina, wow, he is certainly a good weight.

Nov 11 was my mums birthday, Rememberence Day in England, we always call it Poppy Day as they sell paper poppies to raise money for soldiers and they have parades to remember the soldiers who died in the two world wars and all the other conflicts since and also to remember our serving soldiers too.

Forgot to say that we call those letters round-Robin letters, they are a brilliant idea but we met a couple on holiday one year and they used to send one to us, we didn't have a clue what or who they were talking about!

Congratulations, Grandma Ina!

I don't write much, just a short note to personalize the card more. It seems as if our whole year was spent in doctors offices and nothing exciting the rest of the year.

Remembrance Day in Canada too.....oh and they don't sell the poppies, they give them out in exchange for a donation. Here's a photo of the little sweetie. His name is Lief and in Dutch that word means sweet!

Oh Ina, he's so cute. Lovely name. Have you seen him or does he live away?

Well I suppose our poppies are for a donation too mostly.

Yes, I have seen my newest grandson........he lives in Toronto which is a 1 1/2 hour drive from me. I was holding him for about 2 hours on the day he was born, and will be going there again on Thursday. I took about 15 photos that day. His mom is a photographer, so I imagine we will get lots of amazing pictures of him!

Sheri, that's pretty much what my letter would be, along with all the visits to DH's doctors. Most of the people I send cards to are on Facebook so we keep up with each other that way.

But I try very hard to find something at least 5 times a day to laugh at, even if it's a Dork Moment!
Are you ready for some good news?, (for me anyway) Last night, I finished stamping the insides of my 44 Christmas Cards! Yea! I even had fun doing it. Different sentiments on each group, and some of them I cut shapes for the inside and sponged them. Kind of fun when there is not big deadline looming over me. Now, only have to address them. Maybe, I will even stamp the envelopes!
I've thought about it.....but

Next thing on the agenda is to stamp 15 sets of gift calandars! Uff Da!

Hope your day is better today, Vikki Jo!

Sharon

Honestly the days have just gotten worse! LOL

Work, injured, gained wt., lost job, surgery twice, gave up out side critters, broken car, lost cell phones.... LOL
Then again depending how I wrote it up it could make someones day to day they aren't the only ones with cruddy lives! LOL

I got to see my first grandson back in May, he was 6 months old, but I couldn't hold him. That was right before the second surgery, dropping dishes is one thing, but a baby... not a good thing at all.
He was born 7 weeks early, and had a very rough first couple of months,
I Skype with him a lot, that could be part of why I keep going over my internet monthly!
But my DS who moved to MO to be with his sister is very home sick, so him and DD are coming home for Christmas.
She called just day before FIL found out about heart stuff and the plan was for him to go to airport and get them.
WOW its amazing how life can toss a wrench in simple plans!
i got to see MJ (Micheal Jr.. I have 4 nephews named Micheal, plus his daddy is Mike) roll over for the first time, and now standing and walking around furniture.

LOl That's funny to get one all about strangers! But that's kinda how I feel about the ones from family in Iowa, I never met them, as soon as you move out of your parents home you go on a list to get one I guess! LOL,
My mom gets upset that I always Who IS this? She knows, but I am from her second litter, she was 40 when i was born and my 2 sisters are actually old enough to be my moms, same with my brother, they all have children my age. My Mom's mom's side of the family was all close, until the 70's so I never knew them, but my mom stayed in touch via letters and phone calls


My grama used to do Round Robins with Quilting every made a square and they would get together to assemble it, it was cool.. or one person started it, then sent it to the next person to work on and it would go around the group then back to the original sending, but that was in the 70's I can't really remember it well!

WOW English and Dutch, I'd photocopy too. We did lots of them at work for ppl they would write (or type) it all out, buy pretty paper then bring in for us to run off onto the pretty paper, one man does 200 every year, and he hand writes it all, he has awesome writing


eh is also writing like a diary of his life for his kids, he's maybe in his 80's

Default Good news first

You ladies all rock! Prayers and thoughts must have been all good! Okay It was back on the 9th we found out FIl needed surgery. Well since then WOW!


No we haven't found Clint's phone
You know Monday was a holiday, No MAil! So my WC check didn't come, i didn't think anything of it, even though all of my payment plans are for making payments on Mondays. but It'a National Holiday so i THOUGHT it would be okay
Tuesday Check came, and neighbor wanted to ride to town cuz she has fraud on her bank account, so I took care of my check, and her issues. But my mail didn't come till after 1
It was nearly 4 when we got all done and headed home again.
I walk in the door to Clint saying pack a bag we are going to VA tonight, we will get a room close by,
they changed times for FIL surgery I guess
First if we wanted to see him b4 surgery we had to be there by 8 am, then it changed to 6 am.
UGH well its a 2 hour drive so we went down Tuesday night, found a hotel online, it was $79 okay fine whatever right! Get down there and there was construction so my directions were wrong, i called and we were only a few blocks away
so when we got there i asked her for directions to the VA Hospital from there she says Oh this is a VA stay.. there is a discount then $30 off the bill. that was good

Well Clint didn't sleep at all he was so worried I'd get lost and he would't see his dad. Granted I do not the Metro, but I did grow up down there, and I spent many many weekends at the Mall of America with the kids and my sister.
SO we checked out at 5 am... it was 4 miles to the VA
and no visitors allowed until 6.
A Security guard let us in early though. Get in the room to see dad and it has now changed into a Quad by pass.

Oh I haven't mentioned.. Sunday his younger brother got home from work, laid on the sofa for a nap and the Foot ball game, he died in his sleep of a heart attack! That was not a good way to start this week!

Well they took dad to prep at 7 am, Clint, his 2 sisters, mom and 2 of dads brothers and I sat in this atrium waiting room. They were s'posed to update mom every hour.. I tell you an hour never seemed so long!

I did get all of my payments made.. 1 time I've been thankful for those darned automated calls!

Well it was s'posed to be done about 1 pm..... at 4 they came out to tell us he was in recovery and we could maybe see him in an hour.

Dad didn't wake up till after 6. We stayed there until we could see him, Clint was not handling this well at all.
He decided we need to stay down there another night so I called that hotel back.. no problem we even got the same room.

Oh I haven't mentioned what happened cuz Monday was a holiday.. We get a call at 6 am (good thing I never sleep right) Clint's sister is freaking out cuz moms phone can't call out. (she has 1 of my cell phones)
So I try to call it.. oh great Verizon shut the phones off! Nice thing though is for 1 week you can get calls in and send text messages.
So I text here to relax i will have it taken care of in a few minutes.

I get Verizon on the line and even though I had made my payment on TUESDAY it was too late, I now had to pay off the passed due. UGH! Okay SO I do that, meaning I am gonna short now on the electric bill.. Good thing I couldn't pay them on the phone, and hadn't used the internet while at the hotel!

Then We went back to the VA got to see dad, he was doing very well

Clint still wasn't, so we left for home after lunch, his sisters would be back there at 3.
Got home, to find the electric had been shut off. Oh brother!

Oh and the bed.. Clint couldn't get up off it well. LOL It was still funny to watch him try!
So we moved it all out, put cement blocks under it, got it all back to gether and filled up.

Oh peace at last!

Nope... I was in my room at about 4am playing on Chefville! (bad addiction) I hear the pump kicking in, someone else must be up. Then a bit later I hear it again, so I get up to go check it out.. I am all alone
\so i listen and go back to the kitchen to find one of the copper water lines split. Oh brother!


Geesh did I break a mirror?

Clin'ts dad's younger brother or Clint's younger brother?

You sure have had a very jinxed year. Aren't you glad it's almost over so you can start new? I just hope for you it's not new problems. It's gotta get better, right? I'm amazed you're keeping your sanity.

I'm glad the surgery went well. That's such a long wait. More so when you're 1200 miles away and have to wait by the phone for word. That's what happened to me when my dad has his bypass (he had 7 bypasses). That was back in 1996. Dad is still going as strong as an 83-year-old can.

LOL I am a very sarcastic person so my anger and frustration doesn't come across as angry!

I can even contine now.....

It was Clint's Uncle who passed away He was 5 years younger than FIL
then last night I got a call from my Mother... her twin brother passed away he'd been battling Cancer since August, Chemo seemed to make things worse for him.
The plan today is to look at cards, kinda got side tracked yesterday

Yes, lets all prayer for a pleasant and peaceful 2013

Vikki Jo you really are amazing, with all this going on you can still be amusing, so pleased to hear the surgery went well, but sorry about the other sad news youve had, hope Clint is coping better, our two sons took it badly when Steve had his heart attack last year, he´s always been the one they both turn to for help and advice so Steve said it was the shock that the old Stag (as they jokingly call him) wasnt as strong as they thought.
