I hope I am not speaking too soon but I am becoming a believer in acupuncture.
I have been dealing with neck pain from bulging discs and migraine headaches for
20 years....the older I get the worse it has been getting. I have tried everything.
Medical doctors, massage therapy, physical therapy, chiropractors, Spine One and a couple
of meds. The meds I don't like at me it is just covering up the symptom and
not getting to the problem. "oh here take this" which I did some just to get relief.
I was advised to get steroid shots too. No thanks. Muscle relaxers just put me to sleep
and also not getting to the root of the problem. I like some chiropractic , physical and
massage therapy. But acupuncture has helped the most. With 4 visits, my muscles
are more relaxed then I can ever remember...still have a tiny bit of pain but only
twinges instead of constant. Headache free for 2 1/2 weeks !! Knock on wood!!
Sure hope it continues!! Hope to visit only once a month soon.. If you have pain
I would recommend at least giving it a try! He is even treating some other issues which
have improved also!!! YYYYeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaa!!! Give me a month or two to know
if I am a total believer!!

Christmas Day

We celebrated just the 3 of us on Christmas Day! We let Jerid
open one gift ate a cornish hen feast and saw Sherlock Holmes!
Great day but wouldn't recommend the movie!

Jerid wouldn't be in the picture.  He is as stubborn as a mule!
On Friday the 30th we will celebrate all of us!! More family
pictures to come!  Hope you all had a great Holiday!!

Domestic Violence

Came home last night to a woman needing to hide until her friend could pick her up.
Yep. She had been beaten by her husband so she got out of the house and called for help.
In the mean time walking down the street in slippers and no coat in the snow hiding when
ever a car drove by. We hid in my back yard and I just held her till her friends came.
She left with friends and I knew she was safe, but it all happened so fast. We could have
sat in my car where it was warmer....(she didn't want to come in the house). So I just held
her her trembling body tight and prayed for her. I told her she doesn't have to stay with
a man who does that to her (black eye, bloody mouth and bumps on her head) and that
she deserves better than that! And so does her daughter!! I know where she lives and
will follow up with her. Now just praying what my role should be from here. She needs
encouragment to help herself out of a bad situation! Its happen before she told me through
the tears....just not this bad. I went to bed thankful she was safe and that I met her. But also
thinking about how I am in my warm safe home and right up the street and around the corner someone is getting the crap beat out of her. Very disturbing.
You know it is going on in the world but when you are
face to face with someone, who is running for safety it just opened my eyes.

It's looking like Christmas!!

Dan calls me a scrooge because I am not big into Christmas decorations!
I love to have a tree and to put up Dan's Mom and Dad's nativity. But
that is about it.  So this year I thought: okay we will even put the tree
up on Thanksgiving weekend! I don't think we have done that since the kids
were little! Hey! I am not a scrooge! In fact I secretly think he is a bit of a
scrooge because I can say he hung maybe 10 things on the tree! LOL !
Although I will cut him some slack as he has been VERY busy with
work even on the weekends!!  Which is a blessing and I am very thankful
 for how hard he works for our family.

My 2 year old daycare boy thinks baby Jesus looks like a frog! lol !!

Sentimental value to this Nativity !
It is snowing outside which always gets me in the mood to bake!
