Merry Christmas

I wish it was Christmas every day. I like the tree and the lights and all the warm fuzzy feelings.
I hate the wind it scares me. Stupid Santa Anna Winds...
I hate those little red dots I get randomly on my body.
I like that I've been doing better emotionally and physically. Not great but better.
I haven't updated it a long time. Same as last year.
I moved. My husband and I. in with another couple. Close friends of ours. Long time friends. So far so good.
Changed churches, dropped our small group that was getting us down.
We like the new church. I like the new church. Things are more secure now.
There are some ups and downs. I still have insecurities but they are not as bad.
I'm up because I can't sleep. Nothing new. My body is in pain. A different pain than before. It's always transitioning around my body. Depression, sinus pain, head pain, neck pain, full body pain, fingers and toes pain, depression. Gotta be the lyme.
Grandparents surprised us with my old savings bonds. Over five hundred dollars worth. Taking that to the bank, and using it for my first doctor visit at another place.
The old doctor is a crack.
