Good News, Bad News

I've been itching to write but haven't had the time.  I honestly don't know where all of my time goes.  I do know that if I don't get enough sleep I am extremely cranky.

Good news: Thanksgiving was truly a season of giving thanks for our family.

Bad news: I spend Monday through Wednesday of Thanksgiving week in the hospital with a bowel obstruction.

Good news: I didn't have to have surgery.

Bad news: I had an NG tube ~ I hate those things.

Good news: The doctors finally sprung me the night before Thanksgiving.

Bad news: I didn't get to eat very much turkey dinner as I was supposed to be on a mostly liquid with some soft foods diet.

Good news: Our family was together.

More good news: We had yummy mashed potatoes that I got to eat.

Even more good news: I got a jump start on my diet and I won't have to worry about gaining weight over the holidays.

Better news than that: Hubby has been by my side the entire time, cheering me on, kicking me in the tail when I overdo, and holding my hand.  I love that man of mine!!

The Best News:  I am getting my energy and stamina back AND have had some great quality family time.  I say this every year, but I love the age my kids are at.  Hubby chose our advent devotionals this year, they are written by Billy Graham.  Princess and Prince are truly getting their little hearts ready for Christmas and pondering what the birth of baby Jesus means for their lives. 


  1. Goodness. I hate NG tubes also. Sorry to hear you were in the hospital, but glad you are home. I know home is the best.

  2. Sorry about the "bad news", but delighted to hear all of that "good news" Glad you are feeling better and will have energy to celebrate our Savior's birth!
