As I am writing this I am not wearing my glasses!!! My prescription is way to strong now!!! I am now legal to drive without the aid of glasses. I think I will still need to have glasses but they won't be near as strong. My old glasses are so blurry now, I can't believe the difference! I am so excited for this new change! You all have been so supportive, thank you so much!
I hope everyone of you has a wonderful and exciting New Year. I hope that it brings joy and much happiness to you and your families. Love ya all!!

No Surgery Tomorrow, BUMMER

I was just informed today that my surgery had to be postponed because of the bad weather in Flagstaff. The doctor can't make it to Show Low so I did reschedule for December 30. I will have to go to Flagstaff again. Hopefully the weather will be good for me to travel in. I will update later!

I will be having cataract surgery on my left eye this coming Thursday. I am so excited to see if it will do the same thing the right eye did! It is so amazing to me to be able to see the clock from my bed or to see tv ads without glasses. I have really taken for granted my sight I guess.
Some bumming news for our Skyler. He tried out for the 8th grade basketball team this past week. He had gone to all of the open gyms they had and really worked hard. He got passed the first cuts and then got cut on the last one. I am really disappointed in the selection process. I know he is still trying to grow into his 6 foot 2 inch body and is still a little awkward but the boy is going to be at least 6 7" when he's through growing. He just needed the chance to be on the team to learn. He didn't need to be the starting player, he just wanted a chance. I had talked to one of the coaches last year when he didn't make it and he told me that if he made every open gym and tryout he would be on the team this year. I guess its who you are, which is really sad, especially for the kids like Skyler. He has been a real trooper about it, so I give him big kudos for that.
We finally got our Christmas tree up! The kids were a little miffed at me for not having it up on Thanksgiving day. Dave put some lights up outside so we that we won't be exiled by our neighborhood!
Hope your week goes well.
