Today was the last Christmas family get together for this holiday season and I am exhausted. The holidays have been wonderful. My daughter, son-in-law and grandson came over on Christmas Eve to spend the evening with us. Since we were all feeling a bit under the weather, we just talked, ate and watched a movie. The kids were back on Christmas morning at 10:00 AM to open gifts. My parents arrived at 3:00 PM for Christmas dinner and to spend the rest of the day with us.
December 26th and 27th were spent finishing up last minute Christmas presents; music CD’s and calendars.
Tomorrow I am going to be lazy and just sleep or read a book. I do need to tidy up my house but I think I will leave that for Tuesday when my housekeeper comes.
It rained all day on December 26th, which is very unusual for our part of the country. Most often it is -25C or even -30C at Christmas time. Today it is cold with a strong north wind and snow. The roads and sidewalks are treacherous.
This week I am going to enjoy my Christmas decorations since I have been too busy to do so till now. I decorated the main floor, the downstairs and outside. We keep the decorations and trees up until after Ukrainian Christmas.
The bone pain has been excruciating all day today. I am finding that along with the bone pain I am starting to loose my balance when I walk. This is very annoying and can at times be embarrassing. A strange thing happened today. I suddenly lost all the feeling in the roof of my mouth and gums. It lasted for a couple of hours and then went away as suddenly as it had started. It felt exactly like a dentist had frozen my upper gums and teeth. Very bizarre.
I am off to bed; hopefully I can sleep for at least two hours before I am up again. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
