Just plain old acetaminophen and something with caffeine!

I am very blessed to have my healthy son, my mom and my health...just three things or I would have included the rest of my family...I have 7 siblings and they all have great kids, so they would need to be included...then I have great friends...then a great church family. And I also have a great new job that I love!

1. Do you wear glasses or contacts, if so for how long?
I now wear glasses, tried contacts, but never really got along with them!  The first time I wore my contacts was to a Kansas concert in the late 70s...(think smoke, lots of smoke when people used to be allowed to smoke in public!)...I ended up popping one of them out on the floor of the stadium, but luckily I found it!  I only wore them for about two years.

Hoo Are You??


1. What is your favorite part of the holiday season?
a. spending time with the family
b. giving and receiving gifts
c. sleeping
d. eating and drinking

2. What is your least favorite part of the holiday season?
a. spending time with the family
b. giving and receiving gifts
c. sleeping
d. eating and drinking
None of the least favorite part is that I always have to work either Christmas eve or Christmas day--a 12 hour shift!
3. Do you bake goodies during the holidays? If so do you eat them, give them away or both?
I am not much of a baker...I have a picky eater in my house, so I just don't bake much.  Plus, I just don't need to be eating sweets!

4. Are you all ready for Christmas?
Yes, everything is wrapped and either in my closet or under the tree, except for the last item that I am still working on (knitting some slippers to felt for my son Sam). 

5. What activities do you do on Christmas day?
Well, if I am not working, we start the day out by opening presents pretty early, by 5 or 6, then we pack up presents for my brother's family and head on over there for breakfast.  They haven't opened presents before breakfast, since my mean brother makes them eat a fully cooked breakfast first...then we open gifts. 
Then Sam and I come home and we babysit my brother's family dogs for a few days. 
However, this year everything will be different because I work my 12 hour shift on Christmas day!
