Almost Christmas

I haven't written much over the last couple of weeks so I thought I'd take just a minute and bring my life up to date. Work has been very busy but quite rewarding. We're making good progress and this week we hit a very significant milestone.

Monday Brandon called and begged for the calvary to come to the rescue. Apparently his entire family was sick.  he had been throwing up all night and now Serene was sick and the girls were coming down with it as well. It was finals week for Brandon and while he was on the mend he knew he wouldn't be able to be there for the rest of his family. Lisa was hesitant to go because it was also Sarah's last week of school too but we assured her that we'd be fine. So Lisa piled into the van and headed north. When she got to Brandons house Serene was laying on the bathroom floor next to the toilet emptying the contents of her stomach. It sounds very sad. While there the girls also got sick and on Wednesday it looked like everyone was on the mend so Lisa came home. That night Lisa got sick and emptied her lunch into an ice cream bucket. I made sure that I didn't touch her or anything that she touched because I did not want to be puking. It looks like I may have avoided it.

Last week we got our Christmas tree. As always, I launched the Star Fleet. I always look forward to hanging my Star Trek Space Ships on the Christmas tree.

A week ago last Friday a high school friend of Lisa's came to visit us. We haven't seen him for thirty years but last year they hooked up on Facebook. We walked Christmas card lane which is famous in San Diego for their Christmas decorations. I especially like the train sets.

Today was our Christmas program at church. Lisa, Sarah and I are all in the choir and on the Sunday before Christmas the program usually consists of the choir singing a lot of real cool songs along with a few readings. I love the songs we sang this year.

 I know this posting is very disjointed but that is how the last couple of weeks of my life feels. I can't believe Christmas is this week. I'm very excited.
