Almost Christmas

Christmas is so close.  I know the next couple of days will fly by as we have 5 Christmas Eve services between Monday and Tuesday evening.  Thankfully, we are closed on Christmas AND there are no services next weekend for Volunteer Appreciation Weekend.  It takes many volunteers to put on a service, not to mention an additional 5 Christmas Eve Services.  I’m not sure hubby will know what to do with a weekend off.

I wasn’t going to put up our little tree.  When I walked into the house Friday night, hubby had our little 2 foot tree up.

2013 tree.

He did a great  job.  I guess you can tell what movie I’m watching on the tele – “A Knights Tale”   HAH!

Yesterday, I went with a couple of friends to S4L’s house.  She had a class on Essential Oils.  I’ve  learned quite a bit and look forward to learning more!  Scleroderma has made a mess of my skin (among other things).  After 3 different oils rubbed into my hands and 2 different ones in my water, this morning my skin felt calmer and some of the weird scaly spots are not as bad.  The interesting thing the instructor had mentioned is that most auto-immune diseases are caused by an over abundance of Candida in the body.  What she said made sense and it would definitely be worth checking this out.  As I’m still within the 1st year of this disease, what if this cures it?   I’m all for that!!  I must say that I was exhausted when I got home.  Not sure if it was drinking information from a fire hose or the oils working in my body.  Today, I’m vertical, which is a great thing!

The new medication I started on Friday, can cause facial muscle twitches, seizures and more lovely neurological side effects that I’m not too thrilled about.   Plus another future medication is a mild form of chemo.    I’ll let y’all know the progress as I venture on this new path of Essential Oils

Later today we are going to S4L’s house for a gathering.  It will be fun, as this will be the last time I get to see her and her family before they leave to visit her family in Seattle.  It’s a potluck so I’m going to make Mac & Cheese.  LOL, hopefully it will turn out as I haven’t made it in quite some time.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas!!  Have a great time with you family and friends and hopeful in the perfect gift that was given to us over 2000 years ago!!

Love you all!
