So many things are happening that I just haven't had time to write but today I am sitting and waiting so it's time to share what is going on. My sister is in surgery undergoing a total hysterectomy. They suspect cancer but hopefully they will get it all. She's younger than me, only 58. She's undergone numerous tests over the last few months. We just got word that the surgery will take about 4 hours and they are only a third of the way through. So we sit and wait, and pray.
It's hard to concentrate on the holidays with a storm cloud over your head but we are trying to keep things normal. I've been baking and freezing cookies. We've been planning our family Christmas Eve get together with the extended family. I've also been planning our Christmas Day menu.
The brand new gas furnace has not been working well at all. I've had the plumber here 3 days in a row to 'tweek it'. I finally couldn't hold it in anymore and told him I shouldn't have to pay for him coming out. It should be under warranty to work right. Our crazy weather isn't helping, hot and cold so the furnace works and then doesn't.
It doesn't help that I am going thru sweats and now chills. I went out and bought leg warmers as my legs get so cold they hurt at night. Then in the middle of the night, I am soak and wet having to get changed 2 or 3 times a night. I am eating pretty decent but my sugar isn't reflecting my work. I also make sure I exercise everyday. Sometimes I just want to give up and let go but I don't. I keep plugging along.
The other night I knew there was a binge coming on so I decided that instead of sweets, if I was going to binge, it would be on veggies and a few fruits. I did overeat but at least it wasn't on sweets. Even with all my baking, I haven't eaten my cookies, they're all in the freezer.
So I guess all in all, I'm doing ok. If things go well today, we will have a joyous holiday. If not, then we just trust in The Lord that he has a plan and He will lead us thru.
