Christmas was a stressful event, and my son has still not come to get his presents, but I suppose he will eventually.
Today is a new day, and it is nice to come here and see friendly people.
I am looking forward to trying those cookie recipies.

My daughter's going in to the clinic tomorrow morning. Her dad and I will be with her. She's been sleeping most of today since she was out with her friends most of the weekend. I slept too so this really feels like I'm starting my day. It will be a short one! We'll be ready for whatever tomorrow brings. I'm sure God hasn't given us more than we can stand, and there's always a reason for everything, even if we don't understand it. So, I don't understand why but I do know God is with us, so bring it on!
To any of you who are new and interested. My daughter has HPV and with the stress of her marriage and divorce, it left her with a fragile immune system and she was unable to fight the HPV virus. Most people who get HPV and have a strong immune system will fight it off and it doesn't turn to cancer. Anyway she developed carcinoma in situ. Tomorrow is the day we go in for surgery and find out how invasive it is. I am still so angry at the man she married, but that's over now so I guess I should get over it too. It's just so unfair.
Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts. My prayers and thoughts are with you too Jennimarie. And I sure hope you and your daughter are feeling better, Pauline.
On with the nightsweats, haven't been taking good care of myself this week, but sometimes my mind just goes (somewhere) and it's all I can do just to focus on some things and the rest just has to wait til I can be better to myself. Don't worry friends, I'm not doing real bad, just eating all the wrong things, forgetting my vitamins and supplements, but I'll get back on track soon.

? ? Tomorrow is going to be interesting for me. ?As a singer, I rarely get New Year's off, and am rehearsing with some friends here in a few hours. ?I've made a pot of chili and still need to dash off to the store for some crackers and last minute items. ?I sing regularly with a friend on weekends, but we are both working with someone else for New Years. ?These are friends I do admire and respect, I just wish we had more than one night to get ready for tomorrow. ?That's the joy ?and pain of working with good musicians. ?They rarely need to practice, but always sound better when they do! ?So wish me luck!!
My husband is a musician too, and he is also working with someone else, so we are preparing music and sound systems to go ?two different ways. ?Its a living! ?LOL
Warm regards to all for a safe and peaceful New Year! ?Hugs JR

I told my husband he could stay with the dogs while my daughter and I went for her surgery. I'm sure glad he had a better plan. The 3 of us piled in the car with the 2 dogs. He did all the driving, 100 miles round trip, stayed in the car with the dogs while we went in the clinic. Made things easier for both of us, cuz we probably would have had trouble finding our way around Richmond. ?I was thankful afterwards that we didn't leave hubby (daddy) at home.
They let me hold my daughter's hand during the surgery and that was good for both of us. I saw what they cut out of her and it was larger than I had imagined. When the doctor was finished, we asked her what she thought and she said she thought she got it all. Won't feel completely at ease until we get the results back from the lab(2weeks), but it sure sounds more positive. I'll keep what the doctor said in my mind until further developments.
Meanwhile, we're looking for an apartment for her and her brother to rent together. They've both gone their separate ways since they've left home, but now have decided from their bad experiences with husband and roommates that the smartest thing to do is to go in on something together. Well you know that truly brightens my day! ?They've finally grown out of sibling rivalry and know they can count on each other.. Well, enough good news for one day. I'm feeling better. Thanks everyone.

Roxie,Sounds like you are glad Xmas is over. I don't like to be a scrooge, but I feel the same way. I agree with MissRuth...there needs to be a better way to celebrate with out all the stress. I've kept it as simple as possible since the kids left home.

Thank you for the welcomes and the answers. ?I still haven't found that thread on hot flashes, but I will soon. I am definitely glad that Christmas is over. There are just too many expectations. ?I would like it to be simple, and full of the love that it should be.
My husband is cooking a full turkey dinner today, and his son and wife are coming over with their extremely hyperactive three year old son.. ?I pray that it will go well. ?It certainly smells good. ?He is a good cook. I guess that I am spoiled in some ways. He is also learning to be patient with my nutso behavior and hot flashes. ? ?

Jennimarie: My son is 25 and daughter will be 23 in a couple of weeks. Now that my daughter is single again I don't want to leave her, but I hate the winters in VA so ?summers up here and winters in Texas is perfect. We'll probably be going back to Texas in a couple of weeks. How old's your daughter? Does she live near by?
Pauline: ?good to hear your daughter's on the mend.That's one less stress, right? You are definately not the only one with anxiety. Doesn't it kinda irk ya when you see some people handle stress so easily. I've been at the anxiety board and there are a lot of us who suffer from stress. I've been getting a few frustrations out, venting, etc. Keep telling yourself it won't be as bad as you imagine, in fact, it could all turn out perfect. Hugs to you.
Helen: NO WAY they could have gotten me out ta there! I was ready to fight them but didn't have to. I didn't fly all this way from Texas just to sit in the waiting room!
Susie: You sound so upbeat and ready for the new year. You've got me feeling encouraged. I'm keeping the faith. Thanks.
SusieQ: Glad you are sleeping good. Guess you'll be good and ready when you finally get to see the grandkids.
Roxie: I love it when hubby cooks too. I'm spoiled, but I don't get out of the clean up. , I got so tired of cooking for the family. Never have been too talented in that department. Your husband sounds like mine. He's so patient and loving these days. He wasn't always that way. I've kept him up to date on all the meno symptoms. Not going to deal with this quietly! Guess he's making up for all those years I took care of everything. Meno has been great as far as getting a little pampering. Don't you think we deserve it ??
Kalanie: Have fun Saturday.
Jodan: I think she realizes she's lucky, but past childhood issues still creep in for her. Can't blame her. We can truly forgive our parents, but can we forget? Some things we just have to live with. Ain't that the truth?....
MissRuth: Thanks for the encouraging words. ?
Today it's off to house or apt. hunting. Daughter's going back to work. Gives us something to do.
Hope everyone's day is a good one.
