Ho Ho Ho!

I'm getting a late start with school today, but that's okay. Rick just left to take Neil to a dentist appointment, so that throws me off a bit. He'll catch up when he gets home. This is the week for dentist appointments though. Neil goes today, Rick tomorrow, Nichelle on Wednesday, and I go on Friday. Talk about cRaZy! What's worse is that our dentist is all the way up in Whitefish, so that's an hour drive each way. Oh well ... what can you do?

It's still fairly early and I haven't heard from my doctor about my scan last Friday. I hope to hear something this week, though I don't know if it will be today. A few people have asked me what an MRA is -- it stands for Magnetic Resonance Angiogram. It's similar to an MRI, and it's used to take pictures of blood vessels in the body. Click on the link for info, if you like. I joined an aneurysm site on Facebook yesterday and then started to freak out reading about everyone's experiences. Thanks again for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. I'll let you know when I hear something.

The picture above is of my cat, CJ. He was such a ham. This is one of my favorite Christmas pictures of him. I remember making that little Santa hat for him one year. I still have it and bring it out every Christmas. I really miss that little guy. Okay, I suppose I better get some work done around here now. I was up past midnight working on that digital scrapbook for my in-law's, so I'm tired and sore from that. I need to give my wrists a break. I hope everyone has a great week. My daughter, Nicole comes home from college on Saturday, so we're really looking forward to seeing her again.


  1. Ah yes, CJ, the grand old cat. Here's hoping the no news is good new.

  2. CJ...cute! Lifting you up from here and wishing the good news in return.

  3. I love that photo.

    Another cute

    Santa Claws!

  4. Aww - cute picture!

    I am glad I wasn't alone - I didn't know what an MRA was either... but I googled it so I wouldn't look silly asking! lol

    Hope all is well and you hear from your doctor soon!

    And good for you all going to the dentist at the time of year... remember the dentist's wife needs a nice Xmas present! (Not that I am speaking from experience or anything!) :)

  5. I hope you get good news on your results for Christmas, Rena!
    Your cat is so darn festive and cute!

  6. Such a cute kitty! Too bad you couldn't just take up the dentist's entire afternoon and get all your appointments done at once. But all in one week is great!
