Thanks for all your comments on my bum ankle. It is actually much much better and I am now able to walk very short distances (very slowly) without the crutches.
I have to tell you that it was very FREEING this last week to not be running around all over the place trying to get that elusive one last thing done before Christmas!
Usually about this time, I'm driving myself crazy going back to the grocery store for the third time in one day because I forgot the jar of pickled beets that we just have to have for Christmas dinner. Or that one last stocking stuffer that I won't be able to cram in the stocking anyhow.
Christmas is sort of relaxing and peaceful if you can avoid the hustle and bustle.
OK, this is starting to sound like A Charlie Brown Christmas, but I just wanted to say that I hope you get to enjoy some time with your loved ones and your holidays are everything you are hoping for!
Oh, and that you get to have a big ol' jar of pickled beets on your dinner table!
