I can't believe it has been a whole month! Where has it gone? Wait, I can answer that! Remember when I said I had the flu at the first of December and then that I was sick at Christmas and thought it was pnuemonia? Well I finally went to the doctor on January 2 and it was pnuemonia! I took antibiotics for 2 weeks then, had a small infection flair up and just finished another course of antibiotics yesterday! But I think I am finally getting back on top of things.
I don't know if you remember but I am an accountant, which means my busy time of year has begun. I have spent the past 3 weeks getting the year ends done on my bookkeeping clients and then doing their W-2s. I finished the last of them today, which is good because they are due in the mail today! It has been a struggle to get better and work double hours, but I have made it through. Now we go full steam ahead with tax returns. Full force until April.
Have you been watching the news about the weather? We are getting pounded with snow and freezing cold! It looks like my daughter will be out of school tomorrow for the 3rd time in the past week! And wind! Monday I was snowed in because we had 65 mph winds! And they are about 30 mph tonight, along with about 2 inches of new snow; not a good combination. My husband works at a nuclear lab outside of Idaho Falls and he got held over for an overtime. They left work at 9:15. Now normally it takes him about 1 1/2 hours to get home. Right now we are going on 2 hours and I expect it will be after midnight. When I came home this afternoon, the main highway 20 was polished ice and I could barely do 40 mph on it. So I can only imagine what it is like now! I am keeping my fingers crossed until he gets home!
I haven't scrapped a thing since before Christmas, I haven't played with my new embroidery machine, I haven't done anything fun for sooooooo long! This sick thing really took it out of me! But I have a goal to start something this weekend!
In closing, I would express my sorrow at the passing of the leader of my church, President Gordon B Hinckley. His funeral is on Saturday. He was 97. He has been either a counselor to the president, or the president for over 25 years! It is kind of like when your favorite old Grandpa dies, you know they suffered and needed to go, but you miss them oh so bad! President Hinckley was such a kind man and lived such a wonderful life of service. I can only hope to live mine 1 % as well as he did!
Well goodnight! And sleep well! We will talk again! Share your new stuff with me! I make a goal that my next post will include something new I did with my Cricut and the Design Studio Software!
Make goals! Live and Laugh!
