A Truce for Christmas

I was Considering Ignoring my Blog and still may eventually do just that, yet there is something else going on besides just Christmas Business.  I am also Getting Tired of Debating and Arguing, for it Clashes, sort of with the Mood of Christmas.  So I may just Ignore the Political Part of my Blog and yet Still Occasionally Check to see if someone has Decided to just Chat.

It Seems Like there is always something going on Every Year at Christmas Time that Adds to the Business and Makes Getting Things Done Difficult.  This Year it has been too many Doctors Appointments; the Regular Doctor, the Dentist, a Gum Specialist, an Endocrinologist, etc., etc.

Apparently, I've got Gum Disease and Need a Deep Cleaning.  Fun, Fun, Fun.  I had a Bout with Thyroiditis; could Possibly have a Connection to bringing on the Gum Problems.  My Last Blood Test relating to the Thyroid was Normal, but not in time to not Intrude on the Holiday.  My Husband's had some Pre-Cancer Treatments and well, you get the Idea.  This is not the Way I Like to Spend the Holidays.

Just Thought I'd Share my Complaints.  How is everyone else's Christmas Going?

All I want for Christmas is three
feet of snow...

Three Feet?! Do you Know how much that is? I didn't use to, but we actually got that much one Year and It is actually Hard to Walk in. One Foot is Plenty and it Only Takes a Few Inches in Order to Look Pretty. Yeh, I think I'll Take a Position of Moderation on this one as well. lol.

I suppose you're right: last time
snow came up to my armpits was when I was 4 years old. On the other hand, snowfall is one of those quiet things, only muffled sounds...and I figure with three feet, last minute shopping might be
less hectic. :)

I'm gonna be working.

Medical issues are tough any time, worse at the holidays. Hope it all goes well.

What I was Surprised by, BB, is how Hard Three Feet of Snow is to Walk in. It's Exhausting. I was just Trying to Walk to the Neighbors House through our Back Yard and was Totally Exhausted by the Time I got there. On my Return Trip, I Decided to Take the Long Way Around the Block on a Plowed Road.

We haven't had any Snow yet this Year.

Yeh, Medical Issues can make the Holidays really tough. It's good to be with Family during the Holiday, yet the Hospital (or even at a Doctor's Office, I Forgot at which you work) is a good Place to Encourage and Share God's Love and Christmas Cheer. Have a Happy Holiday, Satyavati.

Lista: I hope you and your husband are feeling better soon!

I just had a visit with my doctor. I've been having heart palpitations (not my normal anxiety attack ones) so I thought it would be a good idea to get checked. My EKG is normal but she heard a "murmur" so I'm going for an echocardiogram. I also have to see my gynie, dentist and have a mammogram. Sheesh, that's a lot around the Holidays! I think I'll do them after, though, because I don't want to over-do, that just makes me nuts and I don't need any help in that area!

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

Lista said...

Thanks Pamela,
We're not Really Sick. It's just Precautionary Stuff. Cancer Prevention, Gum Disease; you know Annoying Maintains sort of Stuff. Even the Thyroid thing turned out to be no big deal. I'm not doing the Recommended Deep Cleaning to the Gums until January.

I just Find Doctor and Dental Appointments to be quite Annoying at this time of Year. Sounds Like you're going through it as well.

We should have done a lot of it after the Holidays as well. Sometimes the Doctors and Dentists act as if these things are Emergencies, when they are not. My Husband will also be going on Medicare soon. Since the Coverage is going to change, we are Deliberately doing stuff at the end of the Year, but what a Hassle! I have really Mixed Feelings about that Decision.

The territory of getting older is littered with doctor appointments. You two have my sympathy, and I know we have yours, too! Hope it didn't spoil Christmas for you. Ours was low-key, decidedly modest, very nice. Happy new year, Lista!

I ended up doing a Pot Roast instead of a Turkey for Christmas, but it turned out Great. Ours was Pretty Low Key as well. My Main Problem was that I am a Procrastinator and I really should Know better because balancing Christmas Stuff and House Work during the Last Week before Christmas can be Difficult, yet it all got done and we had a good Holiday.
