December is one of the busiest months of the year! I will have to admit, my blood pressure rises as I burden myself through my own expectations to make Christmas special. And then, January arrives and the BP goes back to normal just like magic.
I'm still fighting the 'having to be on meds' thing. So far I take a multi vitamin and that is all. However, I am due to go back for labs and an appointment with my NP towards the end of this month so my drug-free status may change at that time. Especially since she gave me a diagnosis of Hoshimoto's Disease a couple of months ago. "But I have no symptoms," I said. "We will repeat labs in three months," she said. "... and go from there."
But getting back to December.
Movie night, the grandkids came down and we had popcorn and chocolate and soft pretzels and a movie on our living room theatre screen. It was pretty awesome.
The oldest grands interact doing what they do best.... competing to see who's the best... lol
There are so many special December moments, but seeing the kids sing Christmas songs at school is a huge reminder to me: My cup is full and running over!!!
Gracie has adapted. To the rearranging of the living room and the chaos. It didn't take her long to find her safe place. Today when I started taking everything down I could have swore I heard her say, "Hey, put it back... I like it like this!"
My girl is a lot like me. We do not like change.
