Tell your friend Veronica It's time to celebrate Hanukkah

Man does time fly! Especially at Christmas time! OMG it seems like it was just Thanksgiving and Christmas is only like 7 days away! AGH!

I am doing a bit better. It is so not as bad as it was. I still get vertigo but only when I look at things that move and when I walk. Much better then almost every min of the day that is for sure! So I have hope it is on the mend. Thanks for all your kind words and well wishes. They mean a lot to me.

We did manage to get our tree up and decorated...Well my kids did anyway lol! I have pics that I need to edit but you know how that goes.

Before I got sick I started this page at a crop my cousin and I went to. I had it all layed out but didn't glue anything down. So I decided to get it out yesterday and glue it all down. Some old stash stuff on this page.

This is my aunt. I love her very much and am lucky to call her my aunt.

Thanksgiving was nice. I felt like crap but it was nice. I went to see my cousins and aunt and snapped this pic of my little turkey head. My cousins boy Markie. He is such a doll.

We took the kids to see Santa at the bass pro shop that just opened up in Manteca...OMG! That place is freakin huge and insane! I mean the kids were hypnotized by all the cool stuff to look at. They had a station to write a letter to Santa and a red ryder shooting range for the kids and crafts table. All free! It was awesome.

Aeden sending his letter to santa.

Aria writing a letter to santa.

My daughter Raven went to her 2nd dance. She looked so beautiful. My little girl is growing so fast. She makes me feel so old. I'm 31 and she is 13 sheesh!

My hubs took me to so see Nothing like the Holidays..It was cute. I liked it and we also seen 4 Christmases. FUNNY!

I have lost 100 lbs now and am on my 6 month. I'm hoping to lose 20 more this month but I don't think that is gonna happen. Man the holidays are hard. So much good food I cant have.

We had some sad news last night. One of your babies (cats) got hit by a car in front of our house. He wasn't even 1 years old yet. My kids cried so hard. My son Rowan said " Why did he have to die in December this is suppose to be a happy time." I felt so bad. I had just went out and put the lights on and he was loving on me. I picked him up and hugged him and said he was getting so big. He was such a sweet cat. I told my kids he is in heaven keeping grandma Linda's lap warm and telling her how wonderful they all were. SIGH.

Well I think that is pretty much it. I am working on RVK stuff and hope to get it done today or tmw. Hope your holidays are going smoothly!

I'll be so blue just thinking about you

I wish I could say I was relaxing all this week. Taking a break from blogging and Internet life, scrapbooking and just plain anything. Sadly that is not why I haven't been around. Last week I started feeling strange. Everything around me was spinning. It was like I was on a tea cup ride and couldn't get off. I was miserable! I thought maybe I had a vitamin deficiency but after a few days it wouldn't go away so I finally went to the hospital fri night. Turns out I have a virus called BPPV. I guess it is common but in most people it isn't constant. Mine is constant 24/7 vertigo. I cant get up to put my tree up, I can barely sit at this computer and type. They tell me it can take a month to go away. UGH! I am trying to get past it and walk slow not stand up for to long blah blah that kind of stuff. If I don't move my eyes or head then I am ok. I am pretty bummed because I have so much I wanted to do. My RVK is coming any day now and I have such big plans for it...Kerry Lynn has a class in freemont on sat I was going to go to now I doubt it because well I cant drive lol! I miss that girl. I need to decorate the inside of my house and tree and clean and do mojo agh!

Anyway there are worse things that could happen to me or someone I love so I am thankful that it isn't one of those things and that this could go away. I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving and are getting your shopping done early this year...I know I m not lol!
