A Busy Month

Wow! it has been a busy month. On the 14th of January I had a shower for Gretel and had 28 people here in my living room. It went really well but thank God I had help from Martha and Rejina. My vertigo still comes and goes but not nearly as bad. Bill and Rejina came to visit with their two year old Sammy. What a cutie! He talks non-stop and when he walks into a room says, "What's happening!" Baby Sofie was christened down in Ohio. It was a beautiful ceremony and she even smiled at the priest when he poured water on her. A dear friend had a son who at the age of 36 had a brain aneurysm and we went to the funeral yesterday. The cold wind and snow blowing in the cemetery was awesome. Mary and Brian and Sofie came up for the funeral and stayed the weekend. I think, maybe, things will calm down a bit now.

Benign Positional Vertigo

Yesterday, I noticed the beginning of another episode of vertigo. Today when I awoke it was full force again. It figures I have almost 30 people coming to my house on Saturday for a baby shower for Gretel. I looked it up on Googol and it said that the spinning occurs when one tips their head and one of the treatments was not to tip your head. I guess "benign" means it won't hurt you (unless you lose your balance or upchuck in an inopportune place) and it also means that there are no easy solutions.

Oh No!!

Today I decided it was time to get back on Weight Watchers. I have signed up on line. Last year I lost 13 pounds. Not enough to break records but the Doctor called me fit! So this morning I weighed in and listed my breakfast only to find that the New! weight watchers has lowered my points by 3! I was having enough trouble before staying within my points. Hubby likes to buy those big jars of cashews from Costco and they certainly are a weakness of mine.

Red and Blue Lights

Tonight as Hubby and I were coming home from the Master Gardeners meeting, we had a surprise. As Hubby turned the car into our subdivision, the sky behind us lit up with bright red and blue lights. Hubby immediately pulled over and I said to him, "What did you do?" He said "I don't know." You know how you sit there while the policeman is undoing his safety belt, uncocking his gun or whatever. I wondered what all the neighbors were thinking. After asking for drivers license, proof of insurance and registration, he told us one of our headlights was out. I still don't think he needed all those lights for that.

A New Year Resolution

I made a resolution to blog more but I can't think of what to write. The last company left on the train this morning. The cat has been having a bout of diarrhea. (Her life is in danger). All the Christmas decorations are put away and it's cold out.
