By the way, She is doing great! Her trip to Houston was such a success. She met some wonderful, ah-mazing, super smart, best of the best, oh so talented, cancer-ass-kicking doctors! Sorry, one adjective wasn’t enough.
She’s decided to receive her treatment in Houston at MD Anderson. A week from tomorrow (Wednesday, Nov. 7th) she will undergo a mastectomy. It’s going to be a long (long long long) recovery but we are confident that this is the best place for her. For more details on my Mom’s trip to Houston and information on her treatment plan, visit her blog: Busting Free.
In the meantime, I will be commuting to Ada from Edmond. (It’s about 1 ½ hours drive) I’m staying with my little sister while my Mom’s in Houston.
Anyway, back to last weekend!
When it comes to Christmas shopping, I believe in starting early... that way you don’t bust your bank (a lession learned from my dad). As a child, I can remember shopping for school clothes at the Limited Too (remember that store?) and pointing out things that I wanted. My precious daddy would go back the next day and buy it for Christmas.
Although...I have found a kink in the “starting early”strategy. Sometimes, it’s hard for me to stop. I end up buying way too many gifts for my loved ones…. or I get so excited about my finds that I end up giving it to them early. That may or may not have happened last week with an adorable fringe scarf I bought for my little sister.
How about you? Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
p.s. aren't those vintage pictures cute? They remind me of Bing Crosby Christmas songs and all those classic claymation Christmas movies...
p.s.s. yes, I'm aware that tomorrow is Halloween! I'll try to hold off on the Christmas posts from now on!
