ON TOP OF ALL THIS, MOM FELL SHORTLY AFTER 1AM.
BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER I COULD NOT CALL FAMILY TO COME HELP.  SO I SAID I WAS GOING TO WAKE CHRIS UP.  LUCKILY HER LIGHT WAS ON AND SHE WAS UP, SO THE TWO OF US GOT HER OFF THE FLOOR.  HER RIGHT HIP AND KNEE WERE HURTING BUT SHE COULD WALK ON IT SO WE WOULD PLAY IT BY EAR.  THIS MORNING SHE WAS HURTING A LOT.  SO I WAS GOING TO GET AHOLD OF FAMILY TO TAKE HER TO DOCTOR BUT SHE WANTED TO WAIT.  IT GOT BETTER AS THE DAY WENT ON SO I THINK SHE WILL BE OK.  BUT DIANE WILL TAKE HER TOMORROW IF NEED BE.  HER FALLS SCARE ME BECAUSE STATISTICS SHOW THAT PEOPLE HER AGE THAT BREAK THEIR HIPS DIE WITHIN THE NEXT YEAR.  LAST NIGHT I REALLY FELT PANICKY AND ENDED UP WITH AN ASTHMA ATTACK.  COUGHING AND NOT BEING ABLE TO BREATHE DO NOT HELP A PERSON LIFT PROPERLY.  SHE IS BLAMING THE SLIPPERS I GAVE HER FOR CHRISTMAS.  SHE DOES NOT TELL THAT SHE HAD STOPPED AND WAS NOT HOLDING ONTO HER WALKER AND WAS TRYING TO GET A CONTAINER OF CANDY OPEN, LOST HER BALANCE AND FELL.  NO IT WAS THE SLIPPERS.  SHE SAID SHE SLIPPED AND SHE DID NOT, SHE LOST HER BALANCE WHICH IS CRAPPY AND SHE SHOULD NOT BE WALKING OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT WITHOUT HER CANE OR WALKER.  SHE MAKES ME SO MAD AT TIMES.  SHE HAS AND ELECTRIC RECLINER YET SHE CONTINUES TO TRY OVER AND OVER TO GET UP ON HER OWN.  I SAY OVER AND OVER TO HER, USE THE CHAIRS POWER.  SHE IS A STUBBORN WOMAN.  I TOLD HER I WANT HER TO BE LIKE THE WOMAN CELEBRATING HER 107TH BIRTHDAY IN THE PAPER TODAY.  SHE SAYS IT WON'T HAPPEN AS HER VALVES WILL NOT LAST THAT LONG AND SHE IS NOT GOING THROUGH ANY MORE HEART SURGERIES.  I DO NOT BLAME HER.  HER APPT WITH HER NEW CARDIOLOGIST WENT WELL.  EVERYTHING SOUNDS GREAT, SHE HAD AN ECHO AND ALL IS WELL, HER PACEMAKER HAS NEVER HAD TO FIRE OFF.  SO ALL IS GOOD THERE.  I WANT HER TO TALK TO HER MD ABOUT HER MEMORY ISSUES BECAUSE THERE ARE MEDS OUT THERE THAT CAN HELP.  I HOPE SHE WILL.  I WILL TELL MY SISTER TO BRING IT UP.  THAT ALWAYS TICKS MOM OFF.  SHE WISHES SHE WOULD NOT SAY ANYTHING.  BUT MOM WOULD NOT REMEMBER HALF THE STUFF SHE IS TOLD OR REMEMBER TO TELL HER ANYTHING WITHOUT A SISTER BEING THERE. 
DOES LIFE EVER GET EASIER?  SO MANY PEOPLE WITH PROBLEMS SO MUCH WORSE THAN MINE.  IT MAKES ME ASHAMED TO COMPLAIN...BUT THEN WHAT WOULD I HAVE TO TALK ABOUT?  I AM SO SORRY YOUR FRIENDS ARE GOING THROUGH ROUGH TIMES.  I WILL SAY A PRAYER FOR THEM.

I know.  I'm jumping the gun, but I'm slow so I'm starting this party early! 

Drumroll . . . I actually did get quite a bit done yesterday.  All little things, but "little things mean a lot", right?   I still have a lot of those little things to do, and I hope to get them done before the New Year.

I did text Shauna and ask if she wanted to reschedule her next service for us which is on New Year's Day.  It isn't a problem for us, but I thought she might want to do something with the family.  She said it wasn't a problem but she could come today or on Friday.  I left it for Friday.  Better not have too much bubbly New Year's Eve.  (As if that's a problem ~ ha)

We also got the new ornament storage box I ordered from Amazon.   It was the one on Prime that should have come in two days and didn't.  Mike put it together yesterday.  A bit more of a pain than we'd anticipated, but not too bad.   It looks like it might work very well for us ~ I hope.   There are three stackable trays and if I can put most of the ornaments in the individual 'boxes', I'll be able to see exactly what I have.  Now for those special ornaments that aren't in their own boxes, I have to wrap in tissue and maybe a baggie with a note about what this ornament is.  (Mike to DJ, SF 1981) etc.  When we put the tree up, I have to unwrap each ornament and lay them out on the table.  Mike starts putting them on while I'm still unwrapping and we reverse the process when we put the tree away.  Then I have to find the tags and make sure they are wrapped with the ornaments.  It's a pain.  If this works I can just put most of the ornaments in the storage, and then go through my old tubs to find the tags and add them the first time.  Fingers crossed!   Oooh ~ TMI.  Way too much detail, huh?  lol

The third season of 'A Place to call home' has finally been released here and we did a mini binge watch of that last night ~ the revised Season 2 ending plus two episodes of Season 3.  It certainly pulls you right in!  

My niece Katie texted to ask if we were watching "Making a Murderer" on Netflix.  Hadn't heard of it, but she said it was supposed to be really good and 'everybody' was watching it.  It's a docu-drama about a real crime in Wisconsin.  We may have to check it out.  She also said it was like the Podcast "Serial" on NPR which was soooo good.   (Oh, my dear girl.  I NEVER listen to NPR.  EVER! ~ I get downright mad that my tax dollars are funding it.  Of course I didn't tell her that.  LOL)  You may as well know the very sad truth about our families ~~ they are all Liberals!  Comes from living in Minnesota, Wisconsin and California. It is to weep.  (LOL ~~ Stop snickering!)

OhMyGosh ~ Shades of my misspent youth in Minnesota!  You DID get it, didn't you?!  Obviously you were saving up so you could have all that snow at once!   Oh, how clearly I remember those deep snows and having to shovel them ~ and drive in them!   It snowed the day after I retired (I hope I haven't told you this before), and I went out on the deck and stood in the falling snow and just marveled at how beautiful it was.  A few minutes later a friend who had retired with me called and just said "Isn't it beautiful?"   It's amazing at what a difference when you don't have to worry about clearing the walks and driveway, or driving in the darned stuff!  Before then I would cringe when I awoke to a good snowfall and I thought of it as "that white sh**).  lol    Anyway, I feel everyone's pain!   
I'm so glad a neighbor helped Diane clear the drive and move her car, and that the kids didn't get into accidents and that none of you lost power!

It doesn't surprise me at all that sweet Josh stayed helping people, bless his heart!

I'm so sorry your mom fell, and almost sorrier that she blamed the slippers you gave her.  Makes you feel bad and you have no reason to.  Just know the truth and try not to let it make you feel bad.   Good thing that Chris was there and up and could help you get her up!  I hope she really isn't hurt.
How wonderful that her new cardiologist says everything is great.  I plan to live another 30 years, so I think she should, too.  ;-)

I know what you mean about our problems, which occasionally are fairly major, but are so minor in comparison with what others are experiencing.   I called my online friend Faye yesterday to see how she is doing post surgery, and she is in a lot of pain and it may take up to a month for the surgery to heal completely.  That's cutting it close because she has some major spinal surgery scheduled for Feb 8th and I know she will be devastated if that is delayed, or if God forbid it doesn't work.  She had spinal surgery to correct a problem a year ago, trying to avoid this major surgery, but it didn't work. She is literally bent into a 90 degree angle.  And she has had two brain tumors and so many other things, including Parkinson's.  She almost never complains and you can hear me from here when I get a hang nail!   I really need to keep counting my blessings!    Still, sometimes we just need to bytch a little bit, and when we do, we are here for each other, cuz we understand.   So there. 

Stay warm, and stay INSIDE! 

Love, hugs and

I WAS WRONG, THERE WERE DEATHS DUE TO THE STORM,
INDIRECTLY.  2 MEN IN MILWAUKEE DIED WHILE SHOVELING SNOW.  SO SAD.  OUR DEAR FRIEND MARY, WHO BECAME A SURROGATE GRANDMOTHER TO US DIED BECAUSE OF SHOVELING SNOW.  SHE WAS FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS GOING INTO HER APARTMENT.  SHE MUST HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET IN TO CALL FOR HELP BUT IT WAS TOO LATE.  THEY   TRIED  RESUSCITATING HER ON THE WAY TO THE HOSPITAL BUT THEY NEVER GOT HER BACK.  IT WAS SO SAD,  IT WAS THE 3RD OR 4TH OF DECEMBER.  SHE HAD ALREADY BOUGHT ALL OUR PRESENTS AND WRAPPED THEM, SO WE ALL HAD SOMETHING TO OPEN FROM HER ON CHRISTMAS.  THE COOKIES AND CANDY I MAKE FOR CHRISTMAS ARE ALL MARY'S RECIPES.  SHE LOVED CHRISTMAS AS MUCH AS I DID SO I HONOR HER BY MAKING HER TREATS.  SHE USED TO MAKE ALL OUR COOKIES AND CANDY.  WE ONLY DID MOMS DIVINITY AND FUDGE.  OUR REAL GRANDMOTHER'S WERE NEVER "CLOSE" TO US AND NEVER MADE US FEEL SPECIAL.  MARY FILLED THAT VOID, EVEN THOUGH WE WERE ALL PRETTY MUCH ADULTS WHEN SHE CAME BACK INTO OUR LIVES.  HER HUSBAND HAD WORKED WITH MY DAY AND SHE WAS FROM PORTAGE WHERE MY DAD WAS FROM.  I CAN REMEMBER VISITING AT THEIR HOUSE AND THEM ALWAYS GIVING US CRACKER JACKS....THEY HAD GOOD PRIZES IN THOSE DAYS.  WE GIRLS ALWAYS WANTED TO GET A RING.  NOW I THINK YOU GET JOKES AND TATTOOS.  STUPID.  HE HUSBAND WAS A DRINKER AND GOT ABUSIVE.  HE MISSED WORK AND ENDED UP GETTING FIRED EVEN THOUGH THE COMPANY PUT HIM THROUGH REHAB 2X.  HE ONLY HAD ONE ARM AND THEY REALLY TRIED TO HELP HIM.  MARY ENDED UP DIVORCING HIM.  SHE WENT TO LIVE WITH A MAN TO TAKE CARE OF HIM.  SHE COOKED, CLEANED, DID LAUNDRY, HAD A HUGE GARDEN.  SHE WAS A WIFE IN EVERY WAY EXCEPT THEY WERE NOT INTIMATE.  AFTER HE RETIRED FROM THE RAILROAD AND HIS HEALTH WAS NOT GOOD.  EVERYONE TRIED TO TALK HIM INTO MARRYING MARY SO THAT SHE WOULD GET HIS RAILROAD PENSION WHEN HE DIED.  HE NEVER DID.  WHEN HE WAS IN THE HOSPITAL SHE SAT BY HIS SIDE EVERY DAY.  SO WHEN HE DIED, SHE HAD TO FIND AN APT AND BUY FURNITURE.  THAT IS WHEN SHE

 STARTED COMING TO OUR HOUSE ALL THE TIME.  WE TOOK

 HER GROCERY SHOPPING EVERY WEEK AND ANY OTHER

 SHOPPING SHE NEEDED TO DO.  WE TOOK HER

 EVERYWHERE WE WENT AND SHE JOINED US FOR EVERY

 OCCASION.  SHE DID MANY OF THESE BEFORE BUT

 HOLIDAYS SHE ALWAYS SPENT WITH HIM.  HIS FAMILY

 WASTED NO TIME IN GETTING HER OUT AFTER HE DIED.  

THANKFULLY, HE GAVE HER A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF MONEY

 EVERY WEEK FOR WHATEVER WAS NEEDED.  ANYTHING

LEFT SHE GOT TO KEEP.  SHE HAD A NICE NEST EGG BUILT

 UP AS SHE TOOK CARE OF HIM FOR OVER 10 YEARS.  OK,

THIS WAS TMI TOO, LOL.

JASON WAS JUST HERE TO GET ALL THE TRASH AND RECYCLING OUT.  HE IS SO FUNNY AND HAS DONE A LOT OF GROWING UP.  IF YOU DO NOT COUNT HIS FOOLISH TRIP TO APPLETON IN THAT STORM.
I AM WONDERING WHO THAT MAKING OF A MURDERER IS ABOUT.  WE HAVE HAD SOME VERY FAMOUS SERIAL KILLERS HERE....ED GEIN AND JEFFREY DAHMER.  THERE IS ONE MURDER CASE THAT IS BACK IN THE NEWS AGAIN.  NOT A SERIAL KILLER...JUST KILLED ONE WOMAN, BUT IT WAS ALL PRETTY HORRIFIC AND A NEPHEW WENT TO JAIL WITH THE MAN AND MOST OF THE INFO CAME FROM HIM AND HE WAS A BIT SLOW, NOT THAT IT DOES NOT MEAN HE DOES NOT KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG AND A LIE FROM THE TRUTH....HE TOLD QUITE THE STORY AND THEY FOUND ENOUGH PHYSICAL EVIDENCE TO CONVICT THE MEN.  I THINK THEY ARE TRYING TO GET HIM LET OUT.  IT HAPPENED ON HALLOWEEN 2005.  STEVEN AVERY WAS THE KILLER AND TERESA HALBACH WAS THE WOMAN KILLED.  SHE WAS RAPED, TORTURED, HER BODY MUTILATED AND THEN BURNED IN A FIRE PIT.  THE NEPHEW WENT ALONG FOR THE RIDE AND HE PARTICIPATED.  I JUST WILL NEVER COMPREHEND THE MENTALITY OF SOMEONE WHO CAN DO THINGS LIKE THIS.  WHY DO THEY THINK IT IS OK?  I THINK THAT IS WHY I FIND SERIAL KILLERS AND THE SHOW CRIMINAL MINDS SO FASCINATING.  I REMEMBER  ONE KILLERS COMMENT "YOU LOOK AT ME AND OMWONDER WHY I DO THE THINGS THAT  I DO.  I LOOK AT YOU AND WONDER WHY YOU DON'T.  IT SEEMS PERFECTLY NORMAL TO ME.  SCARY ISN'T IT?  
OMG, I CAN RECALL YOU SPEAKING ABOUT FAYE BEFORE BUT I HAD NOT REALIZED ALL SHE HAS GONE THROUGH.  I SHOULD NEVER COMPLAIN AGAIN.  I KNOW I WILL, BUT I SHOULDN'T, I HAVE IT SO MUCH BETTER THAN SHE DOES.  WE WILL NOT BE TAKING OUR TREE DOWN TILL AFTER OUR CHRISTMAS WITH CAROLE AND GLORIA.  SO IT SHOULD BE ABOUT A WEEK FROM NOW.  COULD YOU SEND ME THE LINK FOR THE ORNAMENT STORAGE BOXES YOU BOUGHT?  WE NEED SOMETHING BETTER THAN WHAT WE ARE USING.  WE USED TO HAVE SOME BUT THEY HAVE BEEN BEAT TO DEATH OVER THE YEARS.  WE ARE USING TUBS NOW BUT REALLY WANT TO HAVE PARTITIONING SO THEY DO NOT BANG ON EACH OTHER.

Happy New Year!

  I did get all of the Christmas tree decorations down yesterday and into  their new storage box.  I'm still not completely happy with the way I arranged them so I want a bit of a do-over today.  Once they are stored in a good way, I think the new storage box is going to be great.   Just needs a bit of tweaking, but that does leave me with a fair bit of work to do today, and then cook our traditional New Year's Eve dinner.

I had an absolutely terrible night last night.  I don't think I got two hours of sleep. 

My great nephew Aaron wanted to Face Time with me today.  My face on Face Time is scary the best of times, but today I thought it would be beyond terrible so I asked to postpone until tomorrow.  At least I should have the work done and not have to worry about that in addition to my fright mask.  I love seeing them, but I sure don't love knowing they are also seeing ME.  In person I'm sure I don't look that bad, but the camera magnifies every flaw to the point where I'm a bad cariciture.  Ah, Vanity.  Thy name is Dorothy.  LOL

I also have my blood test today.  It's just too much.  With luck I'll get the tree stuff put away today, and then tomorrow Shauna comes.  I will have her just leave the Morning Room this time and then whenever Aaron calls it will be ok. 

I hadn't heard of the snow related deaths in Wisconsin.  How terrible!

How awful about your friend Mary.  She sounds like such a wonderful woman, and she had such a hard life.   It makes me so sad to think of her hard life, though of course I know many people have such hard lives.  Again, I whine about a hangnail and don't do a tenth as much for others as she did.  I'm glad you shared her story.  

How sweet that Jason came to help with the trash and recycling.  Mike got ours out last night too when he picked up the mail.  

I think the "Making a Murder" is about the Teresa Halback murder.  Apparently Avery served 18 years and then was let out because of bad DNA evidence.  Then two years later he was accused of another murder.  Did he do it, or was the law enforcement trying to get revenge?   Sounds intriguing.  This is just what I picked up from Katie, so I may be wrong.  She didn't give a lot of detail ~ from what you shared it sounds like one of the worst of the Criminal Minds stories.  I used to love that show, but it's gotten so cruel I can't watch most of the time.    What a scary comment ~ you can't understand why a serial killer does the things he does, and he can't understand why you don't.   Ooooh.   

I attended "Left Coast Crime" many years ago in Boulder.  It's a gathering of Mystery Authors, publishers and fans and they had group talks by authors on different subjects.   One author looked at us and told us to look at the person sitting next to us.  I had come alone, so I didn't know either of them.  Then she said "What if that person was a serial killer? What if they were planning their next murder now?"    It gave me chills, because of course he or she COULD be, and how would I know?

We still had to tweak the Ornament Storage bin we got a bit.  It has trays with covered cardboard inserts forming the 'holes', but because it isn't solid, if you don't pick it straight up ~ and you know you never would ~ the inset moves and an ornament stored in one hole could slip partially UNDER it.  Then if you pushed the insert down, you could break the ornament.  So not very high tech, but Mike put strapping tape over the long sides and taped them to the bottom.  That works!  I'm also concerned that in moving it around to store and to get back out the ornaments may move on the top level, so I've put tissue in each hole to keep things in place.  That means I can't see all the ornaments at a glance like I'd hoped, but I'm thinking that when we go to put them back up, I will just move the tissue back in each hole and reveal the ornament and it will be sort of the way I had originally envisioned it.   Again, not quite as easy as I had hoped but fingers crossed!   We will still need some of the other storage boxes for boxes and other things, but I think this is going to work.

Here is the link.

Do you have any plans for tonight?   We are boring, we always do the same thing.   I make stroganoff for dinner and we have a sip of champagne or a nice wine and then we watch a movie marathon.   I think we'll do Pride and Prejudice again this year.   Denver has fireworks ~ in the past they have had them around 10 PM and we watch those, and then go to bed to continue watching our show.  Denver has fireworks again at midnight, but we usually don't get up.   We are SO exciting.

Happy, Happy New Year, dear little sister!

A few pictures of the storage unit, to give you an idea.  I'm so proud of myself!   I got all the Christmas ornaments taken down and put away and Mike got them into the garage.   The tree is still up, and the animals on the mantle, but otherwise our halls are undecked!





As you can see, the tissue obscures the view of the ornaments that I looked forward to, but I feel more secure with the tissue in each 'hole', and when it's time to put them back up, I think I can just move the tissue back in each little box so I can see the ornaments, and then put them up.   Even with the challenge of getting the box set up, taking everything down went so much more quickly than usual.   Normally Mike takes them down and puts them on a table and I wrap them in tissue or their boxes or bags with tags.   This time, I did the whole thing myself.   Mike said he was proud of me ~~ and I am too.    lol    Takes so little to make you proud when you do as little as I can usually do.  Ha!   You can also see where Mike taped them.  So far, it's working. ;-)
I didn't get a good picture of it, but i also took one of the 'cross bars' out in the middle of one tray and made 4 larger compartments for larger ornaments.  EzPz.

I won't check in until later on New Year's Day.   Shauna is coming and I have that FaceTime with Aaron and Christina and Vince.

Happy, Happy New Year!!

Love you.

Dorothy
