Well, tonight is the last of this year; and I'm ending it being sick as the proverbial "dog"! Caught DH's head/chest cold a few days ago; then during the holiday weekend an old tooth with a 30-year-old filling in it decided to act up...........after all those years of chewing!!!! How DARE it?!!! And our loved ones are here until tomorrow night to celebrate the New Year! And among the visiting relatives is my dear great-niece who is 17 and both smart AND pretty, if I DO say so myself! She had unexpected gall bladder surgery recently and missed schoolwork; brought it with her down here from PA and she's catching up on Spanish and Advanced Math and God only knows what else, (she's on the National Honor Society!) heh, heh...........can you tell I'm so proud of her?
While great-niece has her head stuck in her books and my computer, I'm in the sewing room trying to cut out and sew up FIVE cotton, wrap-around skirts for her to wear on a missionary trip w/her dad to Africa next month!
We are afraid for her to go, but it's a trip of a lifetime; and she's really into helping/nurturing people, so it will be a good thing. Do join with me to pray for their safe journey, work, and return next month.............thanks.
I have no photos for you today, but will in a couple of days. I'll find out Wednesday what this tooth is going to cost me to keep it in my mouth!
I'm looking at a sure crown, and praying it doesn't also need a root canal.
Plus: we got THREE days/nights of rains to help our "severe drought" conditions here in mid-N.C., and for that I'm very thankful..........so I'm not staying up late tonight to see the New Year in, but hoping 2008 will bring better health; prosperity; and lots more creative endeavors! Happy New Year, everyone!!!
