Mexican, A Christmas Story, and Family

John, Abby, and I are currently celebrating the holidays in the snowy state of Virginia!  The snow is beautiful and is almost as high as Abby is tall!  She wasn’t sure what to think!

So far it has been amazing time being with family!  Today we traveled to see my grandparents and it is so nice that Abby is able to enjoy her great-grandparents.  I just love this time of year!  Its rare that the entire family gets to be together so we treasure each and every moment we have together as a family!  Now we are back at my parents house and getting ready to start our Christmas Eve traditions!  Bring on the mexican food!  Don’t ask how we got this tradition started as I have no idea but its one that we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon!  Mexican food and A Christmas Story surrounded by family.  Could it get any better?

What are your family Christmas traditions?

All I want for Christmas is a new brain

Fibro brain strikes again!  I’ve posted this week about having a rheumatologist appointment today.  So I left work, headed home really quick to change clothes, and was just about to head out the door but I thought to myself, “I’d better check my appointment card really quick.”  I knew it was in my nightstand.  So I pulled out the card and looked at the date.  It read “12-15-09 4pm”.  Crap.  I missed it. 

Needless to say, I am not a happy camper.  Thank goodness I found this out before driving the hour to get there and thankfully they could fit me in right after Christmas.  Ugh.  Sometimes I feel like there should be a vacancy sign hanging on my forehead.
