~ Happy New Year ~

Photobucket 
:::waving::: Hi folks!  I know I haven't been around much and entries by me have been few and far between.  That is with the exception of a tag offer here and there.   Just not into the blog thing right now I guess.  I think it's because I have a hard time sitting here and I am sick of having the 'poor me attitude' and complaining about the aches and pains.   I am doing good and will be doing some rehab on a regular basis.  Need to get my muscles back into use.   Speaking of.... we went out for dinner this evening and stopped at my nieces after.  What a hoot!  The kids got Wii for Christmas and we went to town.  The 'fit' game is a riot and let me tell you it is a work out.  I think I'm going to look into getting that game.  LMAO  won't need a gym membership :)
I will also be going back to work on Jan 5.  I will start out by working from home, and then gradually get into going into the office.  I can drive and have a few times.  It felt odd but no fear of the actual driving.  More of the snow and getting stuck or something.   Walking is not an option right now.  Not any distance anyway.  I do go back to the vascular doc on the 6th and I'm hoping he can give me something for the discomfort in my foot.  The blood thinner has helped a bit but I definitely still have some major issues.
I didn't do any tag requests for the holiday, but feel free to snag these.  All I ask is that they not be altered, resized, or claimed as your own. 
'Nuff about me.. I am good.  Promise.  I did want to wish you all a very Happy New Year.  May 2009 bring good things to all of us.  Health, wealth, and love.  I do hope whatever you did to celebrate was all that you hoped for. 
Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year d
Wishing you much happiness and good health in 2009
We got my son a wii for Christmas and have been having a great time.. But something we learned a few short hrs after playing. My eight yr old didn't have the remote tight enough on his wrist.. Well needless to say our 48 inch big screen doesn't look as good with the cracks in it!!! LOL :0) he not only broke the protective screen but the screen under that one. We had a very quite Christmas dinner.

Leslie said...

Aww hun it was a great entry and more so to hear from you! Heres to you hun! To a wonderful, happier, blessed 09 for you and your beautiful family. One of the many things i was grateful for in 08 was making a great friend thru you. I hope our friendship will last for yrs to come ;) More so i pray you get better and more stronger with each day. I can imagine the aches and pains must still be so tough hun. Im glad the blood thinner has helped somewhat. Hopefully when u go for your visit to the doc they can help you even more. Thats good you can drive again, also good you will be going back to work the 5th wow. But at home though so thats a good start. Yeah that Wii is awesome. My niece & nephew got it for Xmas i love playing it with them. lets just say im over there house more, haa or i will make them bring it here. Its really cool. i hear that Wii fit is awesome :) Well hun take care. Have a good day and Happy New Year! Love you! Leslie

Slow and steady, do not rush things. As you are painfully aware, there are more important things than work. May your recovery continue strong in 2009. Happy New Year and HUGS :o)

Happy New Year.

Wishing you a NONEVENTFUL year in 2009! ;)

Hugs, Beth

Just Bill said...

Donna, Happy New Year to you too, hoping you have a fine 2009, :{{{HUG}}}, Bill

Missy said...

Love the tags, especially the first one.

I'm glad that you got out for a New year's dinner and are slowly getting everything back to normal such as being able to drive. The fact that you can work from home is wonderful!

Hopefully you'll be up walking around and enjoying life a.s.a.p! If not, you come over here and talk about it! Don't feel like your entries are too depressing. If anyone has it in their brains, while their reading your journal, that life is supposed to be sun shiny days and pretty little ponies, they're lying to their selves.

Happy New Year!

*M*

Debbie said...

Happy New Year Donna! Wishing you the best in 2009! I know you are happy to be going back to work it will bring back a sense of normalcy. I'm glad the blood thinner is helping and the rehab helps you even more. I'm thankful you are still with us to celebrate a new and better year.
Love ya
Debbie

Maria-K. said...

So good to see an entry from you. Wishing you a Happy New Year!
To start back a lillte working again, should help you to keep your mind off of, at least, some things. I hope the Dr. can really help you on the 6th. Will be thinking of you. Best wishes! Hugs, Maria

Gerry said...

I hope the problems you are experiencing now will improve in the next months, even if surgery is the only option. A rough year for you but you still seem resilent and strong in spirit and that counts a lot. Gerry

Robyn said...

Happy New Year's hun! You have been through ALOT in 08' and have so much to be thankful for. My kids have the Wii and the Wii fit and you aren't lying, that game takes the place of a gym lol! FUN games for the Wii all around it seems. Have a great weekend.
Hugs to you!

ADB said...

Happy New Year, Donna, and good luck on your return to work next week.

Bethe said...

Happy New Year D! I was wondering how you were doing. I never heard a "poor me" from you. It's been a long time since you've had "normal life". Besides being home all the time has a tendency to make one feel "stagnant". It took me yrs to accept that this was my new "normal".

hugs sweetie....

Sharon said...

And a Happy '09 to you too! Good luck getting back to work. Hope it goes smoothly!!

Karen said...

Wishing you all the best in the coming new year! Party on!

Chris/cacklinrosie101 said...

Aw, D, my dear friend, I hope and pray that 2009 brings you back good health...I have a feeling deep inside it will...be patient. I think when you start working at home, you will start to feel a bit better; productive. We always want time off but not the time off you had. Here's looking to a much better year ahead....love you dearly!

Saltydawg said...

As you now know I am back to blogging, God, I missed you all so much. I hope that you're faring well now to D.
Happy New Year my friend.
Gaz xx

Terri said...

So glad to hear you are feeling a little better...enough to be driving a little and to start working a little at a time...have missed you tons...but I understand a need for a break from online sometimes...I have heard so much about Wii and Wii fit...I think we might eventually get it as well...anything to help me get these unwanted pounds off..and to be having fun while doing it is a plus!

Wishing you all the best in 2009!

Hugs
Terri

sheri said...

Isn't that Wii a blast? My friends daughter has it. Of all the game systems my son and grandkids have, they don't have the one that I would probably use..lol.
Hope getting back into the work routine goes well for you..
Happy New Year,
Sheri

Linda said...

Happy New Year! I have been really behind on my blogging too. Just so busy this time of year but hopefully I will get caught up on everyone this weekend. I hope you have a good first day back to work on Monday. Linda

Nelishia said...

I wanted to stop in and wish you a Happy New Year too and this be the year that you get better. I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas too!

Love, Nelishia

Lisa said...

Wishing you a happy, healthy 2009. I am glad to hear you are doing a bit better. We got Wii fit a few months ago and you are right, it is a workout. Mom & I went through it for hours and neither of us could move the next day!!! It is a different kind of workout than I am used to that is for sure. Take good care and take it easy and get yourself well.

Lisa said...

Wishing you a wonderful 2009 and a full recovery. Glad you are doing better but taking it slow with going back to work. Good idea to start at home first and gradually work your way towards the office. I work from home also and it is easy to set the pace and rest when you need it.
Lisa

Jeannette said...

Hi Donna, just looked in to see if you'd posted. I hope you're OK and your foot pain is getting better. Hugs, Jeannette xx

Rose~* said...

Happy New Year to you also, Donna. Thank you bunches for the tag - hope to use it again when we get more snow. Right now it is raining and washing most of the snow away that we accumulated in December. Take your sweet time getting back to normal. Your faithful readers will understand. You need rest, and time to heal. We'll be here for you. (((HUGGIES)))

Traci said...

Thought I'd make it an even 60 comments! :) Just saying hi! Glad you are recovering well.
