Here it is December

The year has gone so fast and I don't really know where it has gone.  It seems like a month just gets started and it is over almost like a blink of the eye.  

The temperature has taken a nose dive and they are predicting rain turning to snow.I just know that the air felt cold and damp when I came home this evening. I am not really ready for it, but we don't really have an option whether we like it of not.
I had to go get John's new insurance today because his prescription d company sent us a letter saying that as December 31st, we would no longer have prescriptions coverage unless we found some other insurance. I make my agent do the work for me . I tell him to think of me as his mother and how would he advise me on the insurance for his parents. He has been our agent for the last 12 years every since my hubby got sick. I have seen pictures of his little boy and tonight I got to meet his wife and son in person. His little boy is so cute and would fit right in with ours.
I have one place mat to finish then I will have my set of four Christmas Place mats and napkins to list in my etsy shop. I liked how they turned out. I just need to be able to finish up some of my projects that I have in the fire as  the saying goes.
My boss had to have more test ran today. He has had three surgeries since Memorial weekend. He had an infection at the incision sight, but he said that looked better, but he was having a pain in his side, I can relate to what his wife is going through. I even remember spending a New Year's Eve in the hospital after my hubby had gall bladder surgery.
I called my son in Louisiana to check on him. I can tell by the sound of his voice if he is having a breathing problem. He is doing good and says  that he is just glad to be back to work.
You all have a good weekend.

Your insurance man sounds like someone you can trust. I certainly hope you don't lose your prescription coverage...meds are SO expensive!

I am sorry about your boss. My FIL is in the hospital recovering from surgery. I think he will still be in some pain throughout the holidays. Not a great time but he didn't have a choice. I am going to make cookies and bring them to him.

I'm glad your son is doing fine...typical mother, we know how are children are just hearing their voices!

HAPPY HOLIDAY!!

XO,
Jane

I'm glad your son has settled into his new city.
The cold is not my favorite either. Hopefully the winter will go by as fast as the summer did. LOL!
Stay warm!
hugs,
Caroline

Shirley,
Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your comments so much. It sounds like your Thanksgiving was wonderful and I hope your son can get home for Christmas.

I am going to spend the day in the sewing room. I hope to finish some projects by the weekend!

Shirley, thank you for visiting. You tell me your husband has been ill for 12 years now, my husband had his stroke 11 years ago last month, so we both have been in this situation more or less the same amount of time. I am so sorry you lost both your parents during the Christmas season, mine both left in Spring. Think dad came for mom cause she passed only 4 days before his birthday. What would we do without our grandchildren. Hugs...Lu

Shirley - I hope that you have everything worked out now for your insurance needs. You are so kind to always worry about everyone - your boss is blessed to have you to keep him in your prayers.

I hope everyone in your family continues to do well- I know you always worry so.

I will look forward to seeing your newest creations in your beautiful shop~
