I want to start this post off by saying thanks to everyone for the comments. We have picked a therapist and I am planning to make an appointment with him after the beginning of the year. I still have not heard back from my RE about the antiovarian antibodies test they did. So, I am going to have to give them a call.
I went for an appointment with my acupuncturist today and he didn't charge me! My back has been hurting so he focused on that and gave me an adjustment because he has training in chiropractic treatment as well. He gave me a massage and it felt so good...he is pretty aggressive, but sometimes that is what it takes!
We had a really nice Christmas! We went to our Christmas Eve service at our church. My in-laws came and we went to IHOP afterwards. Then, we went to my husband's extended family gathering, which is at his cousins' house that live pretty close to us, on Christmas day. It's always good to see everyone that comes to that. The day after Christmas, we went to my husband's sister's house with his parents and did our gift exchange. We both got some good gifts.
Yesterday, I went shopping with two of my girlfriends. It was a lot of fun. We all got some very good deals. I am always interested in the semi-annual sales at Bath & Body Works and Yankee Candle. But, the mall we went to has a whole store devoted to BBW candles, so I didn't even go to Yankee. I was so proud of myself for avoiding that one store. The Loft had 50% off your entire purchase! I could have gotten carried away, but even at 50% off, that stuff is still kind of expensive. I got two sweaters, a pair of slacks, and a pair of tights for $100. I got my hubby a super cute sweater at Banana Republic. I cannot pass that store without checking out the men's clearance rack. Old Navy jeans were $15/pair! Well, I know you don't want all the details of my shopping trip, but obviously I am still riding on the post-shopping high!
So, what is everyone doing for New Years? We are going to some friends' house with our small group from church. We are going to eat lots of good food, play fun games, and hang out. I am making my famous non-alcoholic margaritas (it's lime-aid, sprite, and ice blended together). Then, on New Year's Day, we are celebrating Christmas with my dad and his wife and my sister and her husband.
I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and will have a Happy New Year! Be safe and warm!
