Happy New Year to you, too, Andrea!  (and everyone else!)

My! That's a lot of dogs in a household - I have the feeling you were truly in your element. Sorry the travel wasn't so nice, but you're home now.

Subject: [CHAT] Hi Y'all

Hi everyone-I wanted to wish all a Happy New Year. I haven't been much of a
participant lately, who knew life at 40 would get so busy?

I try to keep up with what's going on (Happy late birthday, Zem). Anyway-I
hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I flew to Illinois to spend it with
my sister's family  and my Dad and his wife. We had a great time. Sis and
family have TWO ten week old Great Dane puppies, Daisy and Duke, in addition
to their Yorkie, Peppy, and Wheaton terrier, Peaches. SO, their house was
loud and eventful and QUITE entertaining. I never knew Danes were so vocal. They did a lot of talking and yodeling and other noises. I can only begin to imagine what their house will be like in 3 months when they are 3 times the
size they are now. At 10 weeks they're as tall as my Vidalia who is now a
full grown, if small, boxer.

I got to have a white Christmas and then come right back home. Or almost
right back home. I was stuck in O'Hare for 13 hours on Saturday. That was no
fun at all. Finally I told them just to get me south and I flew into
Jacksonville, FL as all the flights to Savannah were either cancelled or
booked. My best friend (God Bless Her) came and got me. It's about a 3 hour
drive to JAX from Beaufort so we got back home about 3:00 am. I could have
kissed the ground.  Next time I'm going through Atlanta. MUCH easier. LOL!

I have a gorgeous dark purple Dendrobium orchid on my kitchen counter. The
spikes must be 2 feet long and full of blooms. That was wonderful to come
home to. All the other plants are in the greenhouse. We're having our first
big freeze this weekend and after that I can get in the garden and start
cleaning out.  I've borrowed a friend's Sawzall to help me with some
pruning. I've still got mini trees and wisteria to get under control in this yard. I still say Wisteria is Satan's Vine. I think we should move to rename

So, I have lots to do in the next 2 weeks as I have surgery on January 25th. Total hysterectomy. I cannot wait! I scheduled it for that date so by March
I'll be back on my feet. I've been doing more exercise so I'll have some
stamina built up. My Doc assures me that if all goes well I'll recover

Anyway-I think about y'all a lot, even if I don't read every post. I hope we
all have a great 2010! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
