Getting Back to Normal

Normal? What is normal? Well, 2009 in our house has started off with a bang! Isn't that how you're supposed to end the year? Well, we decided we would reverse it and bang it is! Even went to bed at 7:00 pm on New Year's Eve. You know we're such party peeps! lol

You know Christmas decorations have to come off the tree and be put away in their special little places. So that's what I've been doing between nursing and running all over the house.
How come each year when you start to put away your Christmasy things, they seem to multiply? Well, I guess I did buy a few extra things or two.
How come all the pretty glass ornaments didn't come with special boxes so they won't get broken? Oh my goodness, I'm tired! I've almost gotten everything put away.

I am still so grateful for all you, my sweeties, thinking of us with my Mother all busted up! She's doing pretty well and we do have home health care nurses coming this week and helping her and some occupational therapy folks to help her learn more how to use her left hand (she's right handed and she broke her right arm). Thank you again for your prayers.

Now, to the funny stuff. You know I told you my Mother was talking crazy while taking the nasty ole Vicodin? She was asking me why I had changed my hair color to snow white? Well, one of my precious sweeties just couldn't help herself and she sent me a picture of my most gorgeous self and she made my hair white or is it platinum?
Ta dah!!! Look at me! All Snow White Headed! Am I gorgeous or what? ;) I'm printing this out to show my Mother - she'll laugh. Hopefully I can get back to blogging. I've missed you all so much and I am slowing getting around to see all of you! Love love hug hug!!

You are a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night

Last night your shadow fell upon my lonely room
I touched your golden hair and tasted your perfume
Your eyes were filled with love the way they used to be
Your gentle hand reached out to comfort me
Then came the dawn And you were gone
You were gone, gone, gone
I had too much to dream last night

Too much to dream
I'm not ready to face the light
I had too much to dream
Last night
Last night
The room was empty as I staggered from my bed
I could not bear the image racing through my head
You were so real that I could feel your eagerness
And when you raised your lips for me to kiss
Came the dawn
And you were gone
You were gone, gone, gone
Oh, too much to dream
Oh, too much to dream
Too much to dream last night
