Positive thinking does work!

Today I had my doctor appointment with my surgeon and like I had mentioned, that I was concerned about some puffy areas near my surgery site and maybe having to have them needle drained. I was grateful to hear her say that some puffiness is normal and everything looked good. I won't have to see her again till January 5th. I went in there thinking as positive as I could that everything would be fine and healing well and it was! I have got to try that more often. :)

I came home and went straight to bed for a couple of hours, all that positive thinking wears me out! :)

So tonight we went grocery shopping as a family, I didn't even have to ride in the Electric Cart! That's progress!  I must be feeling a little  better because this week went by a bit faster than the others. Christmas is only 2 weeks away and that means the wedding is 2 weeks and 2 days away...yikes. Everyone kept telling me to let the kids and Jeff help me with the wedding invitations and so on Sunday we all sat down with our lists and went to work. Now one list was an old one from Amy's wedding 4 years ago, one was from Brad's mission 2 years ago and then we hand wrote others down from address books and phone books. As many of you know, I have Paper Phobia. I am not proud of it but it is a real issue of mine.  When I have to deal with that many papers I get so mixed up and I just keep handling them over and over again.  There is no way any one would want me to do secretarial work for them. Then Jeff had trouble getting our labels to print off straight and so we had to go back and hand write a lot of them. My worry was that we were repeating some of them when the label thing happened and I think we did? So if anybody got 2 wedding invitations please just ignore it and if you if we missed someone then I apologize and just let me know.

Well, thanks for checking in on us, we are hanging there better every day. It has been a month since my surgery, I am so grateful that is behind us now and we have the wedding and my nephew's wedding to look forward to.

Here is your Christmas thought for the night!

"It was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, "God Bless Us, Every One!"
Charles Dickens

"Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone."
Charles Schulz

Hang in there Lynn! Keep taking things one day at a time (as I'm sure you already tell yourself). I am so proud and impressed at how much you are letting go of in order to take good care of yourself. You'll get back into all your hobbies/pastimes and projects again in time.
