Christmas was very warm

Sunday, December 29, 2013

So I am almost done writing my blog today and the whole things just disappears.???

Go a new laptop for Christmas because my other one was pretty old having be purchased sometime in late 2005 or early 2006 with Vista on it. I had been having so many problems with it locking up on me and just not working very well over the last couple of years. Jeff got himself a new desktop about 6 weeks ago and has been purchasing all sorts of parts and stuff for his stereo system. He has spent a lot of money but not really told me how much and I think he felt a bit guilty. My luck because he also got me a new Dyson vacuum, which is all I really asked for. I got him a nice office chair, made for big and tall guys and it was the best one they had at Staples (most money too lol).

Yesterday my dear friend Mary Beth from Chicago called and surprise she was here staying in a very nice hotel near Disneyland with her family here in Anahiem. We got together with them last night for a nice Italian dinner at one of the local places near us in the town of Fullerton. It was so nice to see them because it has been a couple of years since they were here and even longer since we were in Chicago.

They greatly enjoyed the weather we have been having for the last couple of weeks. Yes, it does get cool if not downright cold at night but the days have been mostly in the mid to upper 70's + and few days have been over 80 degrees. Christmas here broke some records locally for warm temps on Xmas. They were really jazzed to be able to swim at the hotel and use the hot tub.

My EKG stress test came out great and my heart looks find. Hurrah! I still have to do the 48 hours Holter monitor in Jan. because that test will show things like v-tach and a-fib which runs in the family. Seems most of my relatives died from some type of complications from strokes or heart attacks. I hope this one comes out well also.

Ok I hope you all have a great Christmas and wishing you only good blessings for the New Year! We can all use some good wishes, Right?

    In spite of our -40 extremely cold weather, my sister's entire family made the 1.5 hr drive in from the country for our holiday get together yesterday. My brother's daughter was the only one absent (headache) My sweet sister got me a kindle white and an air purifier. Her oldest son gave me an electric blanket.

    Thank you for sharing your blog with us. Glad the 1st tests were good.Hoping all turns out well with the Holter Monitor!! I have a family history of A-fib as well.

    Jeff was definitely generous! Congrats on the laptop! I am assuming you have Windows 8.1 My son has steered me away from 8 but it sounds like 8.1 has worked out the kinks!

    Have a wonderful New Year as we are approaching it all too fast!!

    Right! We have been unusually warm here too (South VA) and now rainy. When I say I am cold my husband says it is all perspective and being on SP I've learned that! When I think it is downright cold some of my New England Spark friends tell me what true cold is! LOL! What a nice surprise to have your friend show up! Oh, hate when my blogs or posts disappear! Enjoy your new "toys"!
