Where've I been??

I can't believe I haven't blogged in almost a month! It's been a busy time, in lots of ways.
First of all, we had an unexpected death in our small church and it was a difficult time.
Then, I got yet another sinus infection and have been sick for about 3 weeks. The DR didn't want to give me antibiotics again, because I've been on them 5 times since August. But, I got reeeaally sick so he finally put me on 2 weeks worth of meds. The sinus surgeon was contacted and he is sending me for allergy testing. Oh boy! Really though, I'd love it if they could fix me up with some good allergy meds so that I wouldn't need the sinus surgery.
Then, we've been doing LOTS of purging of stuff. We've worked in the garages, going through stuff. We threw away a bunch, took 2 truck loads to the Attic Window in Muncie, which is a place that finances the men's homeless shelter there. The rest got sorted into bins and Fred put up an awesome shelving system around the top of the garage, just below the ceiling. So, now everything is organized and stored! Woohoo! And it feels GREAT! I used to think that having lots of stuff filled voids in my life, but now I know that it just isn't true. It causes lots of stress. Getting rid of so much stuff has been very freeing!
Tomorrow is our Thanksgiving dinner at church. My contributions are made-from-scratch sage dressing (stuffing), 2 pans of peanut butter fudge, green bean casserole and sweet tea. =)Everyone brings lots of food and it's a great time of fellowship after church!
My family plus my FIL and step MIL will all be here for Thanksgiving day.
It was 29* degrees this morning. Ugh!! lol
Until next time...Happy Thanksgiving!!
