Holiday happiness

Just a quick note to share one of the small joys I have received this holiday season…

“Getting ready for bed, listening to Journey “Faithfully”. Made me think of you. :) Love you hon! Sleep well Sweetie!”

Now that’s a Christmas present! ♥

Ahh, the joys of the holiday! Truly, I love this time of year. All the festive lights and presents, shopping and parties! I love sitting in my living room with only the tree lit, watching it twinkle.

And I’m ready for it. All the presents are bought. I have one small gift to wrap yet. We’ve already celebrated with my dad’s family. It is good to see everyone, it happens so rarely.

Yesterday, I baked cookies and made candies for FIVE hours with my mom and sisters. A dozen different cookies and candies to share and enjoy over the coming week (Princess Girl already snitched some Holiday Hash this morning before breakfast).

Now we get a two day break (with a basketball game on Tuesday) before we have present opening activities on Wednesday, Thursday (both birthday events for the Princess Girl), Friday, Saturday and Sunday!

Shew! We will be busy, but it will be fun! I think I’m looking the most forward to the mimosas on Saturday morning!

Happy Holidays every one!

Poor Princess Girl

Six days shy of her sixteenth birthday, Princess Girl went back into a Orthopedic boot. She not so cheerfully commented that this is her third boot in three years. Quite an accomplishment.

She is currently suffering from peroneal tubercle hypertrophy. The peroneal tubercle (the small bone below your ankle bone) is protruding. It is pulling the tendon with it. It is making it very painful to walk.

Her pain levels on Monday were up to an 8 out of 10. No human should ever have to feel that much pain. After getting the boot on Wednesday, her pain levels dropped to a 1. YAY!

This morning was not such a good morning. The pain levels were elevated slightly. Her emotions and attitude showed it. Ugh.

We are hopeful that 3 weeks in the boot will solve this problem because the only other treatment is surgery.

The boot is putting a damper on cheerleading and normal 16 year old activities… surgery would squash them.

Letter to a teacher.

Ms. H,

 Princess Girl has tendonitis in her ankle that is causing severe inflammation and pain. I have the medical documentation from her doctor if you would like to see it. Your comments, yesterday, to her and the other choir students that she was faking it for attention were not only unnecessary and unprofessional, but embarrassing to Princess Girl as well.

 Princess Girl has always loved your class and enjoyed having you as a teacher. Your comments made her apprehensive to go to your class that afternoon. This is not a good way to build self esteem and foster good grades in a teenage girl. I feel you owe her an apology.

 Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
