Tests moved

Due to technical difficulties my PET will be moved to next week.......just another week to mull, loose sleep, bite my nails, and worry! Why can't Hopkins and Aetna work with me and not against me?

So in the mean time we are gearing up for Thanksgiving at mom's place. The kids are very excited because this means we are getting even closer to Christmas. They are so excited Christmas is coming that I think I need to slow down with Christmas cheer or I will be sick of it by the 25th. When I mentioned to Dave how amazed I was about their level of excitement he reminded me that I am the ring leader. So I am raising Christmas enthusiasts - somebody has to do it.

But back to Thanksgiving - Charlotte wrote the cutest thing at school I thought I would share. The parts in bold she included on her own:

My Thanksgiving Prayer
I am thankful for eyes that see Alex.
I am thankful for ears that hear noises.
I am thankful for a nose that smells soup.
I am thankful for feet that walk.
But most of all I am thankful for my mom and dad and Alex, my baby brother, and Leland, my big brother he's the best.

So that pretty much sums it up. I need to remind myself to be thankful for good health and family. The kids and I talked today about how much better mommy is this year and that we need to thank god for everything he has given us. I hope all this sickness has taught us more than it has bothered us.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Well, that's a real "bummer," as we used to say back in the 60s about your test being delayed, hang in there, Heather.

As for Charlotte’s sweet poem it was enough to bring tears to this 'ole Granny's eyes ... she is a sweetie, and oh, so smart.

I’d like to add my two cents and say I am thankful (Dan and I) are thankful to have all of you in our lives.

We have the best family, and we do need to count all our blessings that you are feeling better, that we all love and enjoy each other, how lucky are we as a family ... now, let the holidays begin … and the anticipation of what could become an annual thing, “THE ZEITLIN HOLIDAY DECORATIONS CONTEST.”

It will be fun to see who can have the most outrageous decorations this year … hmm, wonder what the neighbors will think? Is Silver Spring ready for this???
