Long time, no write. And I have no good reason. Well, maybe being busy with life is a good reason. Trying to catch up on twelve months of life quickly is crazy.
And sandwiched in with all the errands have been some important events. Such as John's birthday on the 3rd. That was lots of fun. My parents got him a cake. I made him spaghetti with turkey meatballs and shrimp. Just a little experiment and it came out well. I was going to use ground beef, but the store was out of the quality stuff, so I got the ground turkey. It was good!
I have taken the time to watch some funny movies lately. I have found some really inexpensive ones at Wal-Mart. They are good movies, and family friendly. Anyway, a couple of nights ago, John and I purchased some things, and we were walking out the door of Wal-Mart, and this loud alarm goes off. So we stop and I tell the man who surrounds us that it must be the CDs. Sure enough, the cashier forgot to remove something on the CDs, thus causing the alarm to go off. Meanwhile, those walking by are staring at us. The fact that John has a mask on doesn't help, LOL.
John wears that mask everywhere now because his counts are low, and it confuses people. He wears it so he doesn't catch anything, but a lot of people think he wears it because he is contagious. They run from him because they don't want to catch anything. Some think he is a robber and is going to hold them up. We went to a local convenience store the other night, late at night. Everybody in there stopped dead in their tracks, even our neighbor who knows us, LOL. They all looked at John with that mask on. It covers his face except for his eyes. They froze until he bought his milk and loaf of bread, LOL. Then he left the store. John said often that police stop at that store, making sure nobody is robbing. I told him I would get him a T-shirt that read: "Don't shoot. I had a transplant!"
Oh, I forgot to mention. For John's birthday I got him two pairs of jeans. And I also got him two pairs for Christmas. Because he had NONE left that fit him. He has lost 65 lbs. Actually he looks quite svelte, LOL.
I also have a few new outfits. The most beautiful stuff I have had in years. Christmas presents. I feel like a girl again, LOL, instead of a boy. Perhaps I will have John take some photos so I can show you. Thank you, Sweeties, who gave me my Christmas presents!
Well, I guess I better get off now. I am not feeling the best. I had a migraine yesterday and felt kind of yucky today. Sorry if I have not had the time to get around to reading many journals. I am hoping to feel better tomorrow.
Love you all, Krissy :)
