Susan, that sounds like such a great new tradition you have started.
We had a very quiet NYE. My nephew had planned on going to a dance with the other young people of his church, but his best friend was having some family problems and really needed DN's support so he went there instead. Sis made a turkey dinner, but did not go overboard this year. as she was still exhausted from Christmas Day dinner and all the work she put into that. Once again she invited the missionaries for dinner because they had no place to go. They are such nice young men..... Sis cannot stand the though of them not being around friendly faces on such special days.
I had to go to the bank on Saturday and managed to set back my recovery from this stupid cold. Coughing so bad it was all I could do not to throw up...... So sis would not let me do anything to help. I felt kind of lazy knowing how exhausted she was but she did not want me to pass this bug on to anyone else.....
BIL brought me home this morning. Sis was threatening to make me stay over at her place for a few days. but happily I am feeling better this morning. With 4 people living in that one very small place, and only 1 washroom which is upstairs, it can get quite uncomfortable when nature calls and someone else is already there... (I know, TMI !) So I am quite happy to be home again.
I have my doc appt next Wednesday (9th) and hopefully I will be really over this "thing" by then, but I still have to go because he wants to check my thyroid again as it was a little low last time...... I used to have a problem 25 - 30 years ago, but went to a dr who said there was no problem so he took me off the synthroid. My sis (twin) is seeing an endo for thyroid problems and my mom had problems for years, and my yourngest brother had the opposite problem -- a racing tyroid. Si it will be interesting to see what issues come up with this blood test.
Well it is lunch time so must go get something to eat. Hope everyone had a great NY and will have a healthy, happy, SAFE, and prosperous year.
(((hugs))) to all.
