Merry Christmas

Merry Christmass everyone! Thank you for your comments. Well the boys got us up at 9 this morning, so they can get up before 12 if they want to. We had a nice morning of opening presents, then Dad and I went back to bed. Joe watched a new video Dark Knights or something like that and Matt played with his new shaver and hooked up the dvd player we got them so now they can watch movies in thier room and we can watch what we want itsbeen a nice quite day so far not like the long ago times with all you kids running around with delight. I miss that about Christmas I have no idea what I did to get this script Oh Well! Anyway Matt just left for somewhere probably to score something. I think tomarrow we'll take down the tree and get on with life. Did we tell you we took down the wall between the front room and our bedroom? It looks great and now we have a diniing room., but we still need to finish up the walls. Dad is doing better but he seems to need more rest so I hope I can get him to destress and get some rest this weekend. Amy you can put my address up on your blog. I hope you all had a great Christmas I want to thank you all for your love and support. Becky I want to thank you especially for all the help you gave me , hauling me around and buying Dads gifts for him as if you didn;t have enough to do! Thats what I love about my family we can count on each other when things get tough!!!! Love Mom ( I'm I supposed to sign off?)

I've got a BLOG !!!!!!!!!

today I've had to stay off my feet, because yessterday I finally saw the hip specialist, As we suspected i do need a hip replacement Yes I guess I'm getting old! The doctor sent me over to the xray lab where a doctor injected a big dose of steroids into the hip socket in the goin area. Talk about pain I thought I was going to scream. The doctor said it was very inflamed so it made it harder to get down into the socket, yea for me oh well it's supposed to make it feel better within the next week. I sure hope it works. The surgery will cost over 50 thousand dollars so they gave us the name of some agencys that might be able to help us pay for this if we qualify. So keep your fingers crossed. I'm still not ready for Christmas this leg is just putting me behind. I can't remember the last time I was so behind , but like Dad says it will come and then it will go. I'm so thankful to Becky for getting me up on a blog I know now I can keep up with you all. I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH, and am so proud of all of you BYE FOR NOW
