What's on your list

Snow day.  The M and M's came in their jammies.  My sweet tree.  I bought the best lights this year.  They twinkle and look like little stars.  The pink thing on the floor is a blankie for the wee dog.
We have been having snow and very cold temps.  There is a winter storm coming our way.  That's okay with me.

Big brother joining in.  Hope the next picture doesn't freak you out.  It's my normally very skinny ankle.  Yes, my ankles are usually skinny.  The only thing on my body that is.  I stood up a couple days ago and my foot felt frozen and stiff.  Then I noticed the swelling.  I had x-rays and blood work yesterday.  The doctor just called and the x-ray are negative for fractures.  Soft tissue swelling.  I had something similar two months ago.  This time it is more painful.  Lab tests are not back yet.  They are checking for rheumatoid arthritis and gout. 
Pretty, huh.  I need some lotion and a little tan.
Okay, that's it for today.  Not too windy.  I have been enjoying everyone's decorating posts.  Maybe my tree will get some ornaments on it before Christmas.  I think my shopping and decorating stopped before my Mom's surgery and I haven't gotten back to either.  As usual, it will all get done.  No need to stress.  Thank goodness for internet shopping.  I hope you are all hanging in there.  There is still time.  Ho Ho Ho.

The kids are sooooo adorable, the ankle not so much. It looks very painful and I hope they get it figured out. Still plenty of time before Christmas. xo Laura

Debby, Your kid pictures are so cute. Be careful Debby, take care of yourself. You know we moms usually put ourselves last...we can't, who are we going to tend to if we are banged up. That's my "mommy" talk for you .LOL Blessings sweet Debby. xoxo,Susie

The list reminds me of our lists we made when we were younger and looked longingly through the Sears catalog!

Your ankle looks painful! I hope you have a chance to sit down and elevate it. Take care!

When asked what she would like for Christmas my MiL always replies 'peace, love and harmony in the family'. A lovely sentiment. Unfortunately, she is usually the one causing the problems!!!!!
The Christmas list is sweet and so is your tree. xx

My husband goes for a BIG Christmas also. I would rather take a trip or the girls to a show in NY. LOL I like your little tree. Where did you get the lights?

Kimberly said...

I don't see the banner your friend made.

Love the Christmas list and your darling little tree. Take good care of yourself. Susie gave good advice. us Moms tend to put ourselves last.

Lovely kid picture with the bear tree. They look so happy.

Oh dear... the swollen ankle looks painful. Better stay off your feet. I hope that the doctors can fix you up before Christmas or someone else will have to cook the turkey dinner.

I'm sending you some healing thoughts.

Julia said...

OOOPS... I almost forgot that long list, ho ho ho. I love the .99 on each price. I'm with you on trying to keep Christmas gifts to a minimum.

Your poor ankle, I hope your pain is managed.

Darling grand children!

I love your little tree with the bear. Sorry to hear about your ankle swelling though. I've had something like this and it is quite painful. Mine only lasted a couple of weeks though. Here's hoping your ankle goes back to normal soon. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Debby...When does it end? You ankle looks miserable. My left knee does it because of the scholiosis, but nothing like this. Pray it is Not RA or gout either one, but gout would be the better diagnosis. Will be anxious to hear from you when the bloodworm comes back. So glad your banner reached you. Hope you were able to get the wires out of their mushed state and the glueing held. Am happy it put a smile on your face. Take care GF and keep in touch. Love you, genie
