I really like when bloggers show the "real stuff" so I decided to do it now. Decorating for Christmas is fun, it's messy and it's time consuming. I drug everything out of the storage closet last Thursday and this is what it looked like. If you are easily scared, I suggest you use this as a warning NOT to go further! ;-)
Friday, I had a horrendous migraine so didn't get back to the "stuff" until later that evening when I felt a bit better. I really got a lot done but with other things going on too, I was delayed in finishing it.
And....at last, the tree trimming begins. Remember, this is the beginning. Will show the final when I finish these 2 rooms.
A couple of other mentions from last week, with the full moon. My son had to travel to Taiwan again on business, however, this was the trip from hell. Going over, a man in First Class had a heart attack. 5 medical people were on board, however, he passed away. They moved the passenger next to him, covered him in blankets and continued the flight. Can you imagine? My son got extremely ill while there and we were so worried! He is one that can be almost dying and won't consider going to a Dr. or even say that he's miserable. A Dr. from the hotel saw him about 2:15 a.m. and gave him meds, thank God. He finally was able to travel, however, the flight out of Taipei was delayed 3 hrs, thus making them late for his connecting flight from LAX-DFW. Oh yes, and the lady sitting next to him used the barf bag several times due to heavy turbulence. This was really difficult for him. He got to the gate for his flight, they had closed the door. They said if his bag was a carry-on they would open the door and board him. Nope, the bag had to be checked so he spent 3 more hours waiting for the next flight, arriving in DFW at almost 4:00 a.m. Sunday morning.
Saturday was my birthday and I had a severe allergic reaction to something...my eye lids were swollen, red and hurt like I don't know what. I thought Benadryl would kick it, but no. Sunday morning I could hardly see as the swelling was so much worse. I called my Dr. and was advised to go to the ER. I spent 3 hrs there, however, the nurses and Dr. were wonderful. Gave me Prednisone, 2 antihistamines, antibiotic eye drops and yes, Benadryl. I've been hoping I don't turn into Freddie Krueger with the steroids! So far, I just can't sleep and I have more energy ~ the latter being a nice side effect. The swelling has gone down but my eyes still hurt and the eyelids look horrid. I can't be on the computer very long nor read much nor watch TV much. I have been cleaning! :)
Had to clean all my appliances yesterday as they are installing new black appliances today. I can't wait!
That's the latest from my jumbled abode. What's going on with you? Do tell....
