Yes, Donna, I did make ginger cookies, and they turned out absolutely perfect! (They don't always turn out well). And today, I made white chocolate macadamia cookies from some cookie dough I bought from a sale my grandnephew's school had a few months ago. They are also very good. Tomorrow I make the last of the goodies - a white and dark chocolate bark kind of thing.

Darn, missed this thread!! I'm sure it was burried WAY down the threads somewhere for I did look for it!! Anyway, our weekend was good except for the deep sorrow over what happened in Newport, CT. Cry

Friday the cleaning ladies came, two this time so it took half the time, nice!! We just stayed home after that and watched a movie after that.

Saturday...Got my nails done, made a casserole, we went to a Christmas party that night and had a really nice time!

Sunday...Sunday school & church and then to my oldest dgd's school choir concert that afternoon, which was very nice!

Hope everyone else had a good weekend too. Know Suzan's was stressful!!

Editing with good news!! We went for a routine check up with dh's hearing aid specialist this morning. He put in brand new kind of speakers in dh's hearing aids and adjusted the sounds and dh can now hear MUCH better!! I am so happy for him!! Happy for me too as I won't have to repeat everything I say as much..Yay!!

Suzan, why don't you ask them why they want to treat you that way? Tell them you're not feeling well and can't do it. Ask them to please give you kindness and consideration. Then stand your ground!! What's the worst that would happen? They would leave early? They wouldn't come back ever? Yay to that!! If they mouth off at you, leave!! Good that your dh will understand better now. I don't remember when they leave, but I hope it is VERY soon!! Rest as you are able!

I'm so sorry their visit is causing you so much stress. Hopefully your dh will understand why they can't come visit you, once he has had to deal with them, himself. Stick to your guns and don't do more than you can! I hope the rest of their visit goes quickly.

I tried all weekend to get in here, but never could get past the sign in. It just kept asking me to sign in. GRRRR!!!!

We went to Colleen and Brian's on Saturday to celebrate C's birthday a few days early.  It isn't really until Wednesday.  She opened her gifts and then we went out to eat at Red Robin.  Riley got a balloon, lol.  After that, we went to the mall where Riley saw Santa. She wasn't real happy about seeing him, though. She didn't seem to know why Mama handed her off to a strange guy, then everyone tried to get her to smile.  She didn't cry, but made it clear she wanted to get off the guy's lap and go back to her mom!  After doing that, we went to the store for a few things, then back to Colleen's where we made ice cream in her new i. c. maker and had the cake I made.  Shortly after that, Tom and I had to get back home where our cat would be impatiently waiting for her dinner, lol.
Sunday we just stayed around here. We watched the Packers beat the Bears (yeah!) and I got my Christmas baking started with a double batch of Buckeye Balls.

as 4 me:

I'm counting down the days/nights/minutes & seconds,,,,,,  this has been THE worse visit of all the nasty visits.   I just do NOT understand why they think we should wait on them hand and foot and be beligerent. Just don't get it.  This time though, I've not been well , made another appoitment at the neurologist next Friday to see why I seem to be doing so poorly again .  (I know exactly why,,,, toooo much stress).   Because of that most of the hassel and work fell upon my dh, so now he really will know why they should not come here....  LOL

oh darn, they came home again.... welll I'll go take a shower....  tootles.
