I really don't like dreams

This morning, I woke with one of those dreams that you hate to remember. I dreamed that someone I know had died, someone who shouldn't have. I remember seeing it happen, but don't know how it happened. Dreams are like that I guess. I remember "sleeping until 3" the day after it "happened" and I remember Nick coming in my room to make me get up. I remember looking outside. I heard car doors shutting. It was all of Rick's sisters coming over to visit. Then I woke up. I hate the feeling I get when I have those dreams!

I had a dentist appointment. When I got my teeth cleaned the other day, I had no cavities, (YAY) but I had a crown that the porcelain had come loose from the metal. Kevin had done the original crown, so he replaced it without further charge. I thought that was nice. I have so many crowns and they have been done in KY, Massachusetts, and TN so I wasn't sure who did it!

I put my Christmas tree up the day after Thanksgiving this year. That was almost 3 weeks ago. I used a new string of lights (150) clear bulbs are my favorite lights for my tree. The string lasted 2 weeks. The bulbs were black. I have been hunting for clear lights since. Today I gave up and put color lights on the tree. It looks OK, but I really miss my clear bulbs! I have 220 lights on it I think, 100 are standard mini lights, 120 are the new LED lights. They look like the mini bulbs but they are a bit different. I am not a fan! They have a "blue" hue while the standard bulbs have a "red-yellow" hue to them. One of the sets has a few pink lights in with the red, blue, green and yellow. Not a fan. :(

Next year, I will buy more clear lights! I guess I will get extra for backup! Can't take it! But it is only 10 days left until Christmas eve, 11 days until Christmas day. I will take the tree down the day after that, so.....I can live with it this year I guess! If you see clear lights anywhere, not LED, please let me know!

Then while I was taking off all the ornaments to remove the old lights and add new, that extreme weakness came over me again. Felt like I was going to pass out. Didn't of course, but sure felt like it. I went in the bathroom, looked in the mirror and there was a pale white ring around my mouth. I ate a meal bar and drank chocolate milk and felt better after a few minutes. That usually only happens when I have pancakes for breakfast. I didn't have those today!

Please remember the Reason for the Season! And remember those around you who have no one to check on them. Remember those who need your prayers.

"6 For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince Of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his Kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with Judgment and with Justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this" (Isaiah 9:6-7).

I love all y'all!

  1. I hate when part of the lights stop working. That happened to me one year. Like you, I took the ornaments off to replace the lights. But, as I was removing the lights, they began working again. One of the bulbs was loose and not plugged in all the way causing the strand of lights to go out. I put the lights back on along with the ornaments and they continued working the rest of the time that the tree was up. Crazy lights.
    As for the dream, I dislike those too! They leave you with a disturbing feeling that you can't shake easily. Hope you don't have those any more.
