Happy Homemaker 2018-01-14

Back to work since last Wednesday.

My daughter's medical results were non-conclusive so she has to see a specialist this week for treatment - probably ulcerative colitis since endoscopy was good and bloodwork was good.  She is still having problems though and she is off work until February 3rd.  Then she is on scheduled vacations for 1 week.
Have had results for other family members (some good, some not so good) and still waiting for results for another family member.  2018 will be a though year healthwise :(

On another note, we have now made reservations for 5 days in Florida in February (me, my husband, my daugher, my sister, her husband and 1 nephew).  we will be renting an Airbnb (1st time).  Plan tickets are bought too.  We don't usually take vacations (other than regular construction vacations) because of my husband's job, this year is an exception.

I also have some government exams to do on Saturday the 20th (for promotions), crossing my fingers.  

We were invited to 2 supper parties on the 20th also but in another town (3-hour drive), so we declined both because of my exams.

Quote of the week

  1. LOVE your inspiration - nothing better than getting lost in a book. Hope your daughter starts feeling better soon and the specialist can help. Your cold weather is enough to plan a warm vacation though even Florida is cold right now! Have a GREAT week.

  3. Sorry this is already shaping up to be a tough health year for your family, maybe health will find you all sooner rather than later. A Florida vacation sounds wonderful! Agree 100% with your quote. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
