I'm still here. Just been really busy. Doing fine, still hanging in maintenance. Started the New Rules of Lifting for Women. Kicking my bum, but loving it. Except for lunges, they bite!
WARNING! Long update ahead!
We did our big Christmas today! (My side)Shopping for the babies was so much fun! The rocking horses were a hit!
Every one made it, so we had all of the next generation there. Jay Lynne, Raimie, Devani, Allie and Tristan, who is only 3 weeks old, None are over 3, and the son of my nephews girlfriend, he's 2 1/2! It was a hoot! WE got some great 5 generation pics with all the family!
I do have one more Christmas to do, but not until Friday night with the inlaws, and another great gramma. This one was tough to plan. My inlaws, due to a lot of family "junk", thought we were all mad at them, and did not want to do anything, *rolls eyes*. I dang near had to flog them into this.
We're just doing Chili and Oyster soup and crackers and munchies. My kids and I are bringing all the food and disposable dishes to Great Grammas. It's easier, than dragging her and her oxygen, and walker, somewhere else. Now, she's all in a dither, because her pastor, stops at her house on Friday evening, visits and changes his clothes, (I don't know why the clothes change), but she's all worried about that. SO! He can meet us all and have a bowl of soup! It will all work out ok.
Will be busy for the week. The vet tech has the week off, so just me and the doc. Glad WW is good about replacing pedometers, mine will be burning up!
Doc is going to be cranky, because with the VT off, it throws off the normal routine, and doc is older, and about 2 weeks ago, his AWOL, trophy wife, finally showed up and told him she wants a divorce. Merry Christmas! Been a bit tense at the hospital.
Then, on Tuesday morning, at 5a.m. the hub at an A-fib attack, yup, a trip to the ER. WooPee! It was the first since his surgery last January. He flipped back into sinus just as we pulled into the parking lot at the hospital, I made him go in anyway!
Then, due to his employer changing health insurance co. in August, we find out, we have to meet the extra on the new deductible and out of pocket. Yup, that irritated me. In October of 2010, we knew he needed heart surgery, so we preplanned everything for 2011, so we could between the benny card and insurance could cover it all in 2011. NOPE. The employer changes plan in August. So now, more medical bills. Guess, we need to pre plan 2 years ahead, and hope for the best. GRR! Chewed some butt over that one. We have to plan our flexible benefit spending for the next year by the 1st of December, but, the employer makes changes in companies in August. While I'm glad we have the coverage we have, it would be nice if the changes could be coordinated to take place at the same time!
We met the out of pocket and deductible in January of 2011, when the hub had $75,000 worth of heart surgery, thought we were good for the year, had it all planned. NOPE. The new health insurance, has a bigger deductible and out of pocket, so now we have to come up with an extra $grand. YAY!
And his heart still isn't right. *deep sigh*
Ah well. Mostly we are good, and very lucky to have lots of great family, and mostly we get along and love each other.
Thanks for listening!
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!
