waiting

My thanks to everyone for their wishes of "hope they figure it out soon so you can get better". I really do appreciate it and normally I would respond to everyone individually but I'm not in that frame of thought at the moment. Some of you sent hugs, some made me laugh, some gave advice and I really am grateful for the support. The blogosphere rocks.

I'm waiting for the results from my labs. Doc said he would call today if something obvious and out of range came through. At some point today. So... I'm going to wait. Like waiting for the cable guy who'll be there between 7AM and 7PM but they don't tell you in what timezone.

Today's the last day of school for Chicklet before Christmas break - yup, it's not holiday break... It's Christmas break (just like when I was a kid). With a Christmas diner at lunch time (that I shall attend to get my mind off my worries and enjoy the kids), and presents, and kids receiving candy canes, and wearing Santa hats, and yummy smells of turkey and smashed potatoes mingled in that lovely wet snowsuit and wet snowboot smell... and chalk.

Oh... and we received three Christmas cards this week!

The ever luscious and sweet Lu sent a bunny themed card and it was first!

Then came Jay - cool dude extraordinaire with lovely wishes and snow in Arkansas?

And Bondbaby, who sent a picture of cutie-patootie Matt (humina humina!) *giggle*. Chicklet opened that one and said "that's my SP cousin".



I shared a video of these guys a few posts back and, well... there's nothing like a few of my favourite things (hi Jeff!) - Marines, Christmas songs, and a horn section to help me forget my worries...

Hey, I was working on some kind of 'grow lamp' thingie for you, so you could bask in the light while thinking about nothing at all. Problem is, I'm not an electrical engineer (dammit) and I still haven't figured out how to shove physical objects through a fiber-optic cable. Hmmpph. Where's a transporter when you need one?

Anyhoo, kiddo, I'm sending some good karmic vibes your way, let us know when you find out what you find out. ;)

Cat said...

Glad we can help lift your spirits even just a little bitty bit.

Turnbaby said...

If I had let Brad do ALL the cards you'd have yours from us already --as it is my procrastinating self will do them Sunday afternoon---tis the 'season' after all *giggling*

I hope you feel better soon

SMOOCH

Marines playing horns. Something surreal about that. Hope your news is good.

Anndi said...

Errant: Thanks! I just want to know what's going on.

Irish: I'm grateful you're not an electrical engineer, truly I am. Thanks for the vibes, I'll let you know.

Cat: You most surely do. Thanks. :)

Turnbaby: hehehe! I'm still not done, but then I have brain fuzzies!

SMOOCH

Charles: Me too.

Gary: Are you lifting one of those cool beer steins of your making? Thank you.

GF: Thanks dear, I'm hoping we'll get a handle on how to fix this. Horns are cool :)

Bud: Thanks pal!

Akelamalu: not yet, but I enjoyed the time I spent at school... smells and all ;). Now it's time for hot tea and a bit of rest.

Heinous: Thanks darlin'!

Casey said...

Waiting is the most terrible thing, I HATE IT. I hope you get your results soon and that they're good. Enjoy Xmas break!

Desert Songbird said...

I'm waiting for blood test results too. We'll wait together and have a drink.

Jeff B said...

Ya, I caught that part you little stinker.

Get better soon cause I hate to have to pick on someone under the weather. Not that I'll stop, just hate to have to.

Bwahahahahahaha

Hope said...

Sparky Duck said...

I hate waiting! Keep me happy Girl

Travis said...

How many tests is this doc running anyway? I'm not really good at this waiting business.

Ron said...

Just wanted to stop by and let you know that I'm sending you LOTS of "good energy" dear twin!

XO

Mimi Lenox said...

There's nothing worse than waiting.....feel better, dear friend.

Marvel Goose said...

Irish Gumbo You should know better than to try to send a "grow lamp" over the Internet. That is what the fax machine is for.

Just today I was going to send Anndi some Jolt Cola the pep her up when all the whiners in the office started complaining that the rollers would get all sticky.

Bastards!

Dana said...

Thoughts and prayers continue!!

DeeMarie said...

Glad you're staying positive. Hope the Christmas Dinner was enjoyable and that Chicklet has a great break!!

Jay said...

We'll all be waiting right here with you for the results of your tests!

buffalodick said...

Well, I hope you don't have to wait long- that can be more annoying than the news itself..

Meribah said...

Awww, I hope whatever the problem is that it's not serious. And I hope you get to feeling much better soon. I will pray for you too. Hugs. :)
By the way, Matt IS a cutie, isn't he? We can lust after him all we want, so long as we don't touch...at least, that's what his daddy told me! LOL :P

Dana said...

Praying for you...

You should be getting another Christmas card from your precious Southern friend and Chicklet :D

Lu' said...

Did I mention I don't wait well? Here's hoping sweet cheecks *fingers crossed*
