    Well I'm procrastinating again.

    I'm on the computer again while I should be putting up the tree. First I'm rearranging the living room again LOL.

    Maybe we could have a Christmas tree pictures.

    LOL Helene.
    I'm catching myself doing that alot lately too. The procrastination thing.
    Been rainy and miserable here and with my upper resp infection, it's just one grin and giggle after another and combined , it really is easier to sleep through it and wonder if I can sleep till Easter rather than have to go through one more day of this crap, lol.
    Hoping that things get back more on an even keel in the next couple of days. I would love to feel better again and be able to walk, with the rain, I just can't trust going out and getting wet and making it worse. So It's been over a week now that I haven't walked at all. I kinda miss it.
    I set up an charting system on Livestrong.com. It seems to have most of everything I need I guess, except this blog conveniently on the same site, lol
    hope all is going ok with you.
    hope your mom is ok and that you are getting in at least some walking or whatever.

    I did my decorateing gradually a little here a little there every day for about a week.
    I think it is nice you can rearrange the liveing room I live it a tiny house with a small liveing room and rearangeing isn;t possable.
    I did my share of procrastinating myself this year ,, I usually have my tree started the day after thanksgiving It was a week late getting started ...

    Thanks Amber, I'm sure I will. This one seems worse probably because it's the very first time that I've been sick at all in the 3 years I've been in the South.
    It's got to get better, though , I won't tempt fate to say it can't get worse, lol.

    I think I will blame my parents for smoking through my entire childhood. I know for a fact that I had croup every single winter and suffered many many upper resp infections and I think second hand smoke has a huge hand in that.
    Then I worked in an aluminum alloy plant for 9.5 years after my divorce. I ran CNC lathes that were so big we stepped into them while the coolant(coolant and oil mixture)was still spraying to get as many wheels as we could possibly do out in our shift. It really affected everybodys lungs doing that.
    I think the worst of it is the lethargy that I feel with it. If I even do a little bit, I just get so darned worn out from it. Then I start coughing ....
    lol
    Like I told Amber, it's gotta get better, soon ...

    Yes kim that second hand smoke is a killer I have photos of my parents and older siblings smokeing to prove it // I am sure thats why I had asthma my whole life up until 6 years ago when it went away .. I was very sick as a child and young adult through middle age too . I believe you when you say that second hand smoke is the blame ...I accually lived like a hermit for years to avoid the second hand smoke ,,
    worse abuse a parent can do is smoke

    Your tree is so beautiful, I'm putting mine up today. How did you post the picture? I also have an artificial one. I live at my mom's house god forbid I would wet the carpet watering the tree. You see the priority LOL
