Hello my friends,
With Thanksgiving, Vicky, a court appearance and construction I'm a bit overwhelmed. That doesn't count the annual report due at the end of the month.
With Thanksgiving, we had a nice time at both my eldest son's on Thursday and my daughter's on Friday. Our family started celebrating Thanksgiving on Friday about two years after Lisa got married so they didn't do two Thanksgivings in one day. But when Steven & Kim got married-she has no family so...
Vicky is having a hard time seeing herself in the mirror minus her foot. Her husband is making some progress.
Today I had to go to court for the trust fund we are setting in place for Erik, i was a basket case as it was a new judge. I had taken my knitting in my camera to show the lawyer Erik's addition and was stopped at security and told to take my aluminum needles and camera back to the car. That made me 5 minutes late for the meeting with the lawyer but she was later than me.
If all goes well we will have the inspection for a Certificate of Occupancy on Tuesday. They finished the floor & plumbing in the bathroom yesterday. Did the hardwood floor in the bedroom today and tomorrow they are working on the trim, etc. It between then and now I'm traveling up to Ohio for my nieces wedding. My eldest son & son-in-law will be finishing the electrical over the weekend, and my son's wife will be keeping track of my DD's children as she and Erik are driving with me.
One day my life will slow down and I won't know what to do with myself.
Stress has been a major visitor in this house for 3 1/2 years, I pray after the wedding, construction, military graduation in Texas and Christmas I'll be able to breathe and be smarter about food choices. I'm trying-but it's spotty at best.
I know I can do this.... Lord give me strength!
Pictures next week, sorry.

Okay my friends, woke up to freezing cold. Had coffee, scriptures and prayers then by 4:15 off to touch up, then put on the second coat in Erik's bathroom.
At 9:25 the man came and started putting the floor tile in the shower and the bathroom.
Good thing I was done painting by 7:20, tools cleaned by 7:40. Went to work on Forgot to eat breakfast so at 10:30 I took a break from the financial report for the judge to eat some reheated bean soup.
After Erik came home around 2;15, I started mixing the liquids for my annual fruitcakes. The nuts and dried fruits had already been aging in a pot. And I had the other dried goods sifted in a bowl.
See my product-
Close ups of the large in the back and the mediums up front.
Another shot including the miniatures 2 X 4 "
Keeping busy is my moto right now, unfortunately with all the rain it did not include a walk and since I was painting before daybreak, I did not make it to the treadmill either.
I'm worn out and am trying to stay up to be able to sleep until a normal time tomorrow.
Vicky is not doing too well, she is troubled by her husbands illness and him being in another hospital. He has aphasia-something Erik has been dealing with for three + years, and is limited in the use of his left side, since the cyst-once thought to be cancer- put pressure on the right side of his brain. He can feed himself and walk with assistance but is unsteady on his feet.
Vicky has a redness on her toe on her good foot, she's really upset about that.
Vernon's eyes are not seeming to be improving, concerns there because he cannot work, drive or ride-of course he won't be riding in the snow in Ohio will he.
I think I'll hit the hay, it's almost 8PM and I'm ready. I think I've tracked all my food for the day.
God Bless, sleep well my friends.

Yesterday my sister, Vicky, had her foot removed she's in Ohio. Her husband had an accident Friday and was taken to ER real early Saturday morning because he was behaving abnormally, per his son. This morning he had surgery to drain a cyst on his brain and to biopsy it. This was going on in Ohio, while my nephew was having tests in Missouri to try and discern what's wrong with him as his lymph nodes under his arms are swollen.
Since I could neither go to be with my sister & her husband, nor with my nephew I stayed home and painted. When stressed I've three choices, work, eat, read a novel and eat. Chose to work-there's so much to do.
My eldest son helped me with Erik's bedroom
Today I worked on Erik's bathroom alone
I have not tracked, but I'm going to soak in the tub in my bathroom for as long as the water stays hot.
Have a good night everyone
