We wish everyone a very merry Christmas. We are getting ready to open presents. Yippy yippy... more later.

Last night we opened a gift from Christina and it was the most wonderful gift ever. Both of us were in tears.

On a different note phenol botox is scheduled for Jan 5 at 7 am. Thank you UCP for helping out with the hotel stay.

Another Day in Paradise

Christina did not sleep well last night. Angela got up with her and managed to get her back down quite some time later by laying in bed with her.

I woke up before the alarm, oh joy. So after I get some coffee in me, I get a message to check out Facebook. And what do my wondering eyes see, nothing. I woke Angela to see if she wanted to get up and if she would get up to talk to me. We are having issues for lack of a better of describing. It seems there are things going on I am only partially aware of. So I asked Angela to fill in some of the details and we argued.

The day was stressful for both of us. I am still sick and my voice is going and Angela is still sick too. Neither of us showing signs of getting better.

Angela and Christina went to the mall to see Santa. They had their pictures taken and Christina enjoyed tugging at Santa's beard and playing with Rudolph. The picture looks very nice.

After work was tense. I am ready for my night smoke and to head to bed.

Today Christina had another good day at school, she told me all about it. Angela had a doctor appointment and I met them at the clinic.

Angela and I planned to go have a drink after I got home from work. All you parents know, sometimes things do not go as planned. All three of us did get to spend the evening together shopping. We walked through the whole store and found lots of cute things for Christina and Angela. And found a cool toy for Christina, santa may have gotten it for her.

I'm not a huge fan of shopping and clothes shopping may be towards the bottom of that list, but I enjoyed very much spending the evening with my girls. I'd do it again.

Dishes are done, coffee is ready, time for a smoke, and bed. Still could use that drink.

There could be a song floating around out there. Really though, if I'm gonna mention a reference to a song with Monday in the title it better be Blue Monday, good tune.

Today was a typical Monday plus my still being sick and my cough getting worse, Angela still has pneumonia and has to go back tomorrow so they can take a better look(never a good sign). Along with the usual stresses as of late.

Christina had a good day at school. She was undecided who to hang with when I got home. She was walking in her gait trainer while holding mommy's hand. Christina was doing an excellent job. They were heading for the Christmas tree with Christina's hat. Great job Christina, and cheers to mommy for pushing and giving Christina the confidence she needs.

Supper time did not go well with Christina, a time out was in order. We did come to a compromise and she ate. We played on the floor tonight cutting wooden vegetables and then more laps.

Time to back up more photos.
Sleeping in

All of us slept in this morning. I woke up at 09:00, Angela and Christina woke up at 09:30. Woo hoo!!!

I had my time out of the house; went for coffee, hit the store, and then the gym. I'm still sick so the gym was short.

Christina and I put decorations on the Christmas tree. We had a blast. She enjoyed grabbing the silver balls and putting them on the tree. We tried some colored ones, but took them off. The tree looks nice. Angela put some holiday decorations around the house and it looks festive.

Tonight, Christina and I had supper and played on the floor for a little while. Then she wanted to walk. Christina took wonderful steps and did her little hop and giggled. She was doing very well and with some coaxing, she hopped quite a bit.

Angela went to do homework at her mom's. After I put Christina down and checked outside, I thought I would check on Angela also. As it turns out she was sitting in the car with a friend. He opted to take off, not sure why. Gotta admit, that doesn't look good. I'm thinking something is going on. Why else would they take off. Must not be that much homework.

Off to have another smoke(I'm stressed) then bed.

Christina was up at 04:30 today. Again she was tolerant of me getting her meds together and making coffee. Not to mention plopping our butts on the couch so Christina could tell me about her dreams and could get a few more minutes to wake up.

We walked a lot today. By late morning Christina was ready for a break before a full lap was done. Her breaks; however, are a couple of minutes and then it is time to go again.

Christina took a long nap today. I went to get a Christmas tree and Angela did laundry. Angela needed to get out of the house so she went for a drive.

We put the tree up tonight and have the lights on. It was very enjoyable to watch Christina with the lights, she helped. We started late and I want to go to bed rather than putting the rest of the decorations on.

Christina is in bed, Angela is wrapping presents, and I am ready to finish up and go to bed.
More sick

I still have a cold, Christina has been keeping it at bay, and Angela went to the ER tonight.

Angela has pneumonia. Of course the pharmacy messed up again and didn't have the right prescription so rather than telling her they couldn't fill it they called the doc and gave her something else.

The rest of the day was so so. My day went quick, even with headache and coughing. Angela feels like she got hit by a truck. Christina was been whiny much of the day. I'm not sure if Christina is getting sick, just feeling icky, or doesn't want to do the things mommy is able to.

When I came home from work Angela headed right to the ER. Angela was just cleaning Christina from supper. I took Christina and started to heat up some leftovers for myself and Christina threw a fit. After the rounds Christina and I have gone over meal time, I think she thought I was going to put her in her high chair for her to eat supper. After a time out and some cuddling on the couch, Christina calmed down and I ate.

Then walking time. We(more like me) took breaks after two laps up and down the hall. Then we would do it again. We lit candles and turned on the Christmas lights for mommy before she got home.

Again, it isn't as early as I would like. Bedtime for me.

Snowed In Wednesday

So I ask for snow, get snow, and then the company that plows doesn't show until after noon. The snow is pretty and I am glad we will have a white Christmas.

The wind blew so much that the snow was up to the window on one side of the car and up to the door on the other. I shoveled around the car to get out in the morning, but couldn't make it down the rest of the drive. They didn't plow the street very early either. Half the neighborhood was stuck either in their drive or the street.

It was nice to see Christina for extra time in the morning. I went out to shovel more and try to get the car further out several times. Mother nature found amusement in filling everything in with blowing snow.

After work Christina and I had supper and played and walked and sang. We argued about sitting in the high chair again. Angela went shopping and did homework.

I ran out of weather checking sticks, called Angela with no answer, sent a text with no reply. So I called the neighbor to watch Christina(she was sleeping) while I ran to the store. Angela came home in the mean time and freaked out 'cuz the car was gone. She walked in and saw Ed and was a little relieved. I came home just seconds after her. It took quite awhile for Angela to calm down.

Christina is down for her quiet time today, no lunch again. she threw a fit. Time to check the weather.

We finally got some snow. It isn't enough, but a start.

Christina was up early again today, 05:00 is better than 4. I was still sleepy, but she dealt with it pretty well. We compromised, I took coffee sip breaks and she got to walk laps up and down the hall.

Angela had an appointment today and I came to play with Christina. It was nice to see them over lunch. I wish there was something I could do to help Angela's leg. Might have to focus on healing tonight. If I can keep my head clear, still have the cold.

I went to the mall after work today to get a coat Angela found for herself for Christmas. I took a picture and sent it to her to be sure I had the right one. I didn't get a coat tonight, ideas are welcome.

Then to the gym after the mall. It was nice to go. It felt good and then when I got home Christina was upset with me. She gave me a hug, but she was a mommy's girl.

Hoping Christina sleeps until at least 08:00. Angela and I both need the sleep. That way I can at least sleep until the alarm goes off at 06:00.

Monday and still sick

Another day of feeling like crap. I am ready for this cold to go away.

Christina woke up early this morning. She started stirring and talking about 03:30, I tried to hold off until 04:00. I went in to get her and she was all smiles and ready to play.

I opted to try the mellow play like reading and talking about her dreams. That lasted a little while then it was laps up and down the hall

Christina had a good day at school. She did throw up from mucus build up, but it did not seem to slow her down at all.

We heard back from Children's for Christina's next round of Phenol and Botox, early January is the appointment.

Angela's leg is doing crazy stuff again, I don't get it. I feel so bad for her and I can only imagine how much it hurts. Another doc appointment for her tomorrow.

Angela is doing homework at the coffee shop tonight and then running errands. She is going to try to pick up that coat she told me about.

Dishes are done, coffee is ready for tomorrow, time relax a bit before bed. It is going to be an early night for me.
