Whatnot – 12/22/21

Chloe and her red blanket.Hello and good morning. We are getting a little bit of rain and cooler weather here in Southern California which is a very good thing. The pup loves to snuggle up with her blanket on days like this.

As you know, my daughter is home and my son comes in on Christmas Eve. The plan is to pick him up from the airport and then head directly over to my MIL’s house for dinner. We don’t have firm plans for the week but we hope to put something together soon. Omicron is rearing its head everywhere. Closures announced daily. I feel that a shutdown is imminent and I hope flights are not affected this time around. It’s hard to plan for things. We saw Hamilton and The Band’s Visit recently and I kept checking for cancellation notices as some shows were cancelled due to COVID. We were lucky. My kids want my husband and I see see Spiderman before the theaters shutdown again. Maybe we can fit that in this weekend but I’m not sure I want to be in a sold out theater right now.

I made the mistake of scheduling a bunch of appointments this week. I don’t know why I do this. It’s my vacation. After Thursday the appointments will be over for awhile although I was told yesterday that I have to have surgery, TWO surgeries to address the problems with my kidneys. Yes, both of them. I was not expecting that. First surgery is in February.

I’m ready to just relax and have fun. We decided to eat out on Christmas. I always cook but the idea of shopping for groceries was too much so we will eat out and it will be good. I will make breakfast and then we will head out to an early dinner.

How is your reading going? I am trying to finish one more book and then I am calling it a year. For those who celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas to you! It’s almost here!

  1. Oh no, I’m sorry that you have to think about surgeries from now till February-but hope they will be able to resolve your stones issue. Enjoy your time off from work and time with family. Merry Christmas!

  2. I’m glad you’ve been getting some much needed rain! We’re in for more this week and even possibly some snow. Glad I have a bunch of books to keep me happy. 🙂

    I want to see Spiderman, too, but I can wait for it to start streaming. We’re watching Station Eleven and I think it’s better than the book, which I didn’t love.

    I’m so sorry to hear that you have to have surgery. On both kidneys?! Yikes. I’ll be thinking of you in February!

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. I would love to go out, but all our restaurants are closed on Christmas Day.

  3. I am so sorry that you have to have 2 surgeries, but hope that they will fix the problem. And, good for you for deciding to go out for Christmas dinner. We’re doing a take away meal from a local restaurant.

  4. I will be thinking of you and sending positive vibes as you face your surgeries. Enjoy the holidays with your family. Merry Christmas.
