Woops...I forgot keep blogging!  Sorry about that, but honestly-who reads this thing anyway?  If anything it's just an online journal where I can post stuff to a. get it off my chest or 2. share with who ever is watching-even if it's just me :)

So much has happened in the Johnson household since November-which is the last time I blogged.  We've gone through Christmas & a minor surgical operation since then.  Now we are back at work, recovering.....

So what's the story?  Well here is the short version!  Coming back from my nieces birthday party one sunny Sunday afternoon-about 1/2 way into our two hour drive I started feeling some pain in my belly....right under my breast bone that radiated to my back.  It got worst as we got closer to home.  So bad in fact that I started throwing up and we decided to head to the ER to find out what was wrong.  Come to find out, my gallbladder was very very angry with me & we had to schedule surgery right away to have it removed.  That happened the next day & after a few nights in the hospital-I went home to recover two weeks before Christmas.  Uggg.  I am still, three weeks later-not 100% but I am working on it.  My dear friend Christine and her daughter came out to the house during my recovery to lend a hand.  Christine took me shopping so I could finish up my Christmas list for the kids & Hayley stayed and watched Olivia (and the boys) while we were gone.  I feel so lucky to have such wonderful ladies in my life.  Truly not sure what I did to deserve them.

Christmas came and went & the kids got everything (almost) that they wanted.  I missed my older two this year terribly.  It's nice to have a few still in the nest to celebrate such holidays with - but I certainly wish they could all come home for Christmas (and I think they do too).

Talked to Teresa last night & after discussions with her over the past several months it seems she is ready to come back to Florida for a bit, while she tries to find a programming job.  Her ultimate goal is to move back to the south near family & old friends-which I understand for sure.  But she'll have to leave her kitty cat Goon behind & of course her fiance Alex as well.  I guess once she gets established he's supposed to move as well.

Well-that's all about all the time I have left this morning-time to get to work!

Peace & Love!


  1. Well, I read it! And yeah...blogging...I had such intentions last fall and always feel the need to go there just to vent and say things into the cosmos that no one will read but that I need to get out -- but I never remember or seem to make the time.

    1. That's always my intention as well. I used to do a bit better with it, but over the last month-not so much! Maybe it's a good thing-maybe I have nothing to bitch about hahaha
