Nuts ...


Or shall I say ... nutcrackers? Like my nativities, I never spend much on nutcrackers. I've only been collecting them since 2002. I know there are a lot of great expensive nutcrackers, but I'm not into those right now. For the time being, the cheapies from Target will do. This year we got the Hawaiian one, in celebration of Nichelle living in Maui for 3 months. I don't know why, but the boys love these things. They call them yah-yahs, because that's the sound the boys make every time they make the nutcrackers' mouths open and close. So, I guess my biggest Christmas collections are nativities and nutcrackers. How about you -- do you collect anything specific?

Thanks to everyone who kept me in their thoughts and prayers. I went for the MRA today and that went well. I didn't need the injection, so I was glad about that. It's amazing how noisy those machines are. I've never been claustrophobic before, but I can see how frightening it would be for someone who was. Every time I opened my eyes, I felt a little weird, so I tried to keep them shut. I can't imagine what claustrophobics must go through. They told me the radiologist would read the results and send them to my doctor within 24 hours. Since it's Friday though, I'm not expecting to hear anything until next week sometime. Nothing like going in for something so major, only to have to wait so long! My BP was 159/85 just awhile ago, so it's a little lower, but still on the high side. I'll let you know when I hear my results and thanks again for thinking of me.

  2. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I'm hoping that no news is good news and that the longer it takes to tell you the results the better the news. (I deleted my first comment, sorry)

  5. I sort of always found nutcrackers a little scary. Maybe from the time I was 5 and saw the Nutcracker?

    I am continuing to send healing thoughts and prayers your way.

  8. I can't say that I collect anything specific to Christmas. We have lots of decorations around and I love them all. I do collect pigs though so when anyone sees a Christmas pig, it seems to end up in my stocking. I can't say that I have ever bought one myself though! lol
