Yep, they say that the night is always darkest before the dawn. And so it was yesterday. I was so bummed, and sat and did absolutely nothing. Well, not really nothing, I did cry a little. The kids all knew how frustrated I was, and being the good kids they are, tried to find a solution. When Pam came down to help with dinner, she got my laptop and took it to the kitchen. And started surfing. We have requested information from a dental insurance company - from what we saw online, we can get a plan for just a little over $100/month. Not bad. So there's a twinkle of hope on the horizon.
I did, however, forget that I have Christmas shirts to make for my girls and the grand kids. So, today I am getting my designs ready and put on the memory stick for my embroidery machine. And this weekend, the machine will hum quite loudly. Rod's company Christmas party is Saturday night, but with no Steeler game on Sunday, I should get a lot accomplished. I can't believe that we are down to 17 days. I think the fact that the weather has been in the 50's and 60's makes it seem like Christmas isn't so near. But it will come right on time, and if I'm going to be ready, I'd better get a wiggle on (as my granny would say).
