December 1, 2013.......
We have made it through Thanksgiving and what a delightful day it was! Bonnie hosted the celebration at their new home this year and it was such a treat not to have to make all the preparations here. Ben traveled in from San Antonio; Sam and Savanna were there; Bonnie and her brood; and Mom brought Bob from the nursing home. We were all together, except Matt - who is a manager at a nameless store that decided to open on Thanksgiving....thus causing many of their employees to miss family time that day!
We feasted and laughed....and enjoyed being together! Not only were we celebrating Thanksgiving, but it was also Eddie Dale's birthday.
Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! After rounds of doctor visits and tests, I am preparing to be at the hospital tomorrow at 10:00 to get my new hip. Although I had lists a mile long, I know there are bound to be some things that I didn't get done. But, all will be well! I will have no restrictions - other than driving for the first six weeks. (And, let me tell you - that is a restriction that has me pretty chapped!)
I am so antsy today, that I can hardly sit still and make myself write a post! But, the next few weeks will be slow and I plan to do a lot of "catching up" here on the blog. I am looking forward to it!!!
