We went to Bernard's for dinner tonight. Bernard's is always fabulous. I got my usual caesar salad (they have a perfectly tangy dressing) and the filet bernaise. Yum, yum. Roy always gets something different - he's much more adventurous than I. He got his standard artichoke and palm salad. He really loves that. Tonight he got the pasta fruit de mer. He thought it was wonderful. They have great bread with really good butter (tastes French, though it might just be hand-churned) and pesto. Roy also ordered a mountain berry flan torte. It was very different but good. We didn't get gifts for each other this year, so no surprises there.
Overall, very nice. Hopefully I'll still be doing better tomorrow and will get to scrap some. I had planned to do that today, but my head prevented it.

So, that is Loretta Rodger. Please email me or PM me on SCS to send me your mailing address. I'm hoping to mail all of my Christmas cards tomorrow, so I will definitely be hitting the PO in the morning.
Thank you so much for all of your cards. Denise emailed me today. She said the cards are meaning so much to him.
On the other hand, it's Christmas and high time for me to get in the mood. We've got to get that tree up. This weekend. I may send Roy working on that while I'm scrapping. Then the girls can decorate in the morning when I have good light. That sounds like a plan. They are already in the Christmas spirit with the decorations we have put out. Here are Santa's Helpers.

Here's the background: My mother's (since they were 4) best friend's husband has Wegener's disease. She is like a second grandmother to my girls. She takes care of them, attends school events, and is always there for them. He has been in remission for several years. His symptoms returned a few weeks ago and he is back in a full fledged episode. Chemo and steroids are not working like they used to or are supposed to. His kidney function is currently at 13%. He is being admitted to a local hospital this morning (right now). I've added him to the SCS RAK group and he did get several cards from those wonderful angels. Each time he received one, he made a point to call me and tell me how wonderful all of these people were to send him their beautiful cards. He truly appreciates your notes of encouragement and your prayers. Thank you so much. Just let them know you are friends of mine!
Here's the deal:
- Please send him a card. His name is Roddey Hogan. His address is 3306 Shenendoah Drive; Tyler, Texas 75701.
- Post a comment on my blog that you sent a card.
- Put in the card that you are friends of mine.
- Please pass this along to others who would be willing to keep Roddey and Denise in their prayers.
- I will use random.org to select a winner on Friday, December 12 (when I get home from work).
- I will post the winner, you can email (or PM through SCS) me your address and I will mail you a candy surprise.
Thank you so much!

She had Odyssey of the Mind practice after school yesterday. It's usually over at 5. I worked last yesterday making phone calls and asked Roy to pick her up and I started home. He got there at 4:58 but the room was locked up tight. He called and I told him an alternate place to look. A few minutes later he called back and I could hear the panic rising in his voice. He told me that he had searched both buildings and she was no where to be found. He had also checked aftercare, but her name wasn't on the sign-in list and she wasn't in the auditorium. By this time, I was less than five minutes from home but I turned around and went speeding back toward the school. It's at least a 15 minute drive during 5 o'clock traffic, but I was determined to make it in less than 10. I broke at least 12 laws. Just as I was getting to the busiest part of the traffic, Roy called and told me he found her. She got out early and just didn't get signed into aftercare. I don't know if he was panicked and just didn't see her when he looked or if she went to the bathroom, but she was ok. What a relief. My stomach settled down and I was able to be a productive member of society (cooked dinner). My mother claims to have had 6 heart attacks in the 18 minutes we couldn't find her. Thankfully, it was only traumatic to the adults!
