Christmas Vacation!

Wow!  Where did Christmas go?  This is the fastest Christmas has come in gone since I can remember.  We had a great time, a small gathering of family on Christmas Eve and a very lazy day on Christmas day.

Dressed up for Church
The biggest Reese's candy bar ever!  For those of you counting points....this bad boy is 72 of them!
I should make reservations at the ER?
She asked Santa for hockey equipment and not dolls
Now that Christmas is over, I have a week off of work.  We are on furlough this week.  Although I am taking a hit financially, it is a great break in the action.  I am glad to be home with the kiddos (although they are driving me up the wall!!!)  I am catching up on some house projects and on my blog reading.  I am also working on my 2011 goals.  At some point I will be dusting off my running shoes to burn off the 50lbs (slight exaggeration) I gained from Christmas.  Oh yeah, and I am running a 5K on Saturday.  It will be interesting since I have not run in awhile.

Today I found out that I have to have a minor surgery on my ankle.  I had this mysterious lump checked out and they determined that it was a Ganglion Cyst.  Since it is so big they need to cut it out.  To make this even more interesting the doctor thinks that it is attaching to tissue and tendons so before I can get this removed, I need to have an MRI.  This ugly stupid cyst is really taking me on quite an adventure.  Plus, I found out that I have an extra bone in my ankle that they want to remove.  Interesting.  I will know more next week.

Hope everyone had a great holiday!  I am looking forward to catching up with all of you.

We must have the same life! Family gathering for Christmas Eve, and nothing but home time Christmas day. I enjoyed not having anywhere to go then, and after we milked the goat and took care of the livestock (and the Kid opened gifts), we went back to bed! Love it!

Happy holidays! Vee at http://veegettinghealthy.blogspot.com

That is one massive candy bar! I could probably make quite a good dent in it all by myself.

The ganglion removal is not that big of a deal, so you should be healed up and 100% in no time!
