First we had freezing rain...
...and then the blizzard moved in.
Dagan and Leah were both let off work early. Leah already knew hers is cancelled for Friday, too. Dagan's likely will be, also. The wind howls and pounds against the building and it is one degree out there. Supposed to keep snowing through Saturday. Super white New Year's up here!
I have to tell you that something unbelievable has been happening since I started writing about all of this. Been about eight years since I have been able to "write-write" for hours, as many of you know. These "parts" have been close to that and have taken me several hours each to write. Except when I couldn't sleep for those two days--well, I am still functional!!!??? And I am still doing other things as well!!??
I have been afraid to say anything for fear it would suddenly stop and I'd be crippled up with that knife pain for a week. But I only have one more writing session to do after I wake up in the morning...and I am still doing okay!? Sore, but able to function.
Now, I realize that you guys don't see me or know how truly limited my life normally is. You don't see how I suffer when I overdo any physical activity...even Dagan and Leah only see it here and there because I usually only see them when I have time to rest up. But this is absolutely miraculous to me. :):)
I don't know if it is because I am writing about all of this for hours and it lifts my soul, or I am getting some kind of assistance because GA wanted me to write about all this and be done by New Year's Eve? (I had truly expected to only be physically capable of very abbreviated posts.) I am not sure what is going on, to be perfectly honest. It's not like I am suddenly cured or anything, but these last few days I have felt like I did back at college 8-9 years ago when I could still manage to finish my classes. :):)
I hope I haven't jinxed anything by talking about it. Maybe it will end on New Years? No clue. But it has made me very, very happy and grateful.
I have even had the energy and no knife pains...so I punched all the holes in the bookcards...got out the embroidery threads...
...and picked out colors to match the various covers.
Tonight I sewed the 35 bookcards together while I watched The United States of Tara's latest season.
Plus I have been puttering with making ten thank you cards and am more than half way done with those!!
I've washed clothes, made up my weekly check-off sheets for the next three months, wrote up my goal list for 2011, wrote a letter, balanced the checkbook, paid bills to mail on the 3rd, kept up pretty much with emails and blogs, took videos, and been organizing a few small spots. Un-be-liev-a-ble!! (Knock on wood!!)
If it all goes away over New Year's, I am soooo thankful for these days--I can't even tell you.
For now--I am off to bed. Hopeful for another tolerably decent day ahead.
Happy, happy, happy new year!!! :):):)
